HOW TO USE ALOE VERA TO PROMOTE HAIR GROWTH...



Hair loss is a problem that faces millions of people, including men, women and even children. The market for products that promise hair growth is vast, but many of these products are either excessively expensive or completely ineffectual. There is a natural remedy for hair loss that has existed for ages. Aloe vera has been used by many different cultures to stimulate hair growth, and it is safe, natural and affordable.

Instructions

1.  Get examined by a doctor. There are a variety of different causes for hair loss, including scalp infections, reactions to medications, illness, vitamin or mineral deficiencies and other medical reasons. Your doctor can help diagnose the cause of your hair loss and may be able to provide a simple remedy to combat it.

2.  Look for aloe vera hair products online or in health and natural foods stores.

3.  Use aloe vera gel to treat the areas of the scalp that are going bald. Aloe vera contains an enzyme that helps promote new hair growth for some people. The gel can be applied directly to the scalp, as aloe vera typically has no side effects.

4.  Make an aloe vera shampoo. When combined with wheat germ oil and coconut milk, aloe vera gel makes a shampoo to promote hair growth. Use the shampoo as often as you wash your hair.

5.  Use aloe vera lotion alone or in addition to aloe vera gel. When not used as a shampoo, aloe vera lotion works to revitalize the hair and the scalp to prevent hair loss and promote hair growth. Aloe vera lotion is most readily available online.

6.   Combine aloe vera therapies with a balanced low-fat, low-protein diet. Diets high in fat and animal protein cause a number of medical reactions that lead to hair loss.

Tips & Warnings

You can purchase raw aloe vera plants at any nursery or garden center.   Harvesting the aloe vera gel is as simple as breaking off one of the tendrils and cracking it open. The gel can be easily squeezed out.

Wheat germ oil can be found at many different online retailers and at most natural foods stores. It is often used as cooking oil.

If itching or skin irritation occur, discontinue use.

ALOE GROW TREATMENT RECIPE

1/2 CUP OF DISTILLED WATER

1 1/2 CUP OF ALOE VERA GEL

6 DROPS OF ROSEMARY EO

6 DROPS OF PEPPERMINT EO

SHAKE WELL

( Sometimes I add vegetable glycerin, that works great as well)

You can tweek this recipe to your liking.  I found this recipe from one of the ladies on you tube.  And I use it at least 2x daily , once in the morning & once before bed.  I really, really love this recipe.  My hair feels very moisturized, soft and stronger!

I looove aloe vera gel, I add it to my shampoo, co- washes, regular conditioners , Deep conditioners, and  leave -in  conditioners,  from time to time.  Give it a try!

I just tried something like this for my daughter - 1 part water (regular tap) 1 part 100% aloe vera gel, and some jojoba oil. Last night was the first time we tried it, but her hair seemed very happy this morning! I will try your recipe next.

I use a mix of 1 part water, 1 part aloe vera gel and a tiny squirt of honey. It moisturizes without being greasy. I love it! I also use aloe vera gel in my shealoe mix.
