If you have been following us and using our products, then you know we LOVE aloe vera over at Carrie J Hair Care! Organic aloe vera is the main ingredient in over half of our products and we are about to explain to you why.
Aloe vera is a plant that has thick leaves with a gel-like substance in them. Aloe vera has a high water content and is filled with vitamins and minerals. Aloe vera is cooling and soothing when applied to skin and is used to treat burns and skin wounds. Aloe vera has a ton of healing properties for the hair and skin.
For hair, aloe vera is used to strengthen hair and make your scalp healthier. Rubbing aloe vera directly on your scalp allows it to penetrate the hair follicles and restores damaged hair. More benefits of aloe vera include:
Calms Itchy Scalp
The fatty acids found in aloe vera have anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, aloe vera helps with reducing dandruff and soothes scalp inflammation.
Strengthens and Repairs Hair
Aloe vera contains vitamins a, e, and c. Each of these vitamins contribute to promoting healthy cell growth and shiny hair. Vitamin B-12 is also in aloe vera, which promotes hair growth by assisting in the production of oxygen-rich red blood cells.
Promotes Hair Growth
Aloe vera has the ability to increase blood circulation. When you use aloe vera on your hair and scalp, blood flow to your scalp increases.
The enzymes found in aloe vera has the ability to attract and lock in moisture. This is beneficial to dry, brittle hair.
We hope you are loving this ingredient as much as we are. You can find aloe vera in our 3 in 1, Deep Conditioner, Twisting Butter, and Styling Gel. Let us know in the comments what you think!
