Benefits of Aloe Vera Gel for Hair:

Promotes Hair Growth

When Aloe vera is applied to the scalp it is known to increase hair growth by nourishing the scalp and increasing blood circulation to the area, it penetrates deep into the surface leaving the scalp and hair follicles moisturised. It is known to help resting hair follicles to awaken from its slumber, boost hair growth by repairing and clearing dead skin cells on the scalp with the help of active proteolytic enzymes, which has also lead to a decrease in hair loss. By nourishing the hair strands with Aloe Gel, your hair is less prone to breakage, meaning split ends are prevented and you are left with sleek, healthy hair.

Sun Protection

Aloe Vera is an anti-aging gel, and can also be used as an after-sun treatment for skin. Aloe Vera is not a sunscreen, but can help to keep the hair moisturised to prevent the sun from damaging your hair and drying it out too much.
