4 Hair Benefits of Aloe Vera

If any plant could be called “man’s best friend”, it would be the aloe vera plant. It may have a bitter taste but the benefits it brings to the body, skin, and hair, are sweeter than honey.
According to WebMd.com, “The aloe vera plant has been used for thousands of years, since as early as 1750 BC. There are more than 450 species of aloe vera. It’s a succulent plant that grows in hot and dry climates around the world.” It is quickly becoming a common ingredient in the cosmetics industry and for good reasons. In this article, we’ll explore four hair benefits of aloe vera.

1. Soothes Itching

Dandruff, a discomforting scalp condition, often accompanied by itching, and possible scalp inflammation, can be eliminated by applying aloe vera gel on the scalp. Aloe Vera has cooling and anti-inflammatory properties that relieves scalp irritations. Researchers have discovered that Aloe Vera significantly decreases scaliness and itchiness.

2. Excellent Moisturizer

Aloe Vera is an excellent natural moisturizer. It doesn’t take long for the moisture in the Aloe Vera to penetrate the hair strands, eliminating dryness.

3. Strengthens Hair

Aloe vera has many active ingredients and minerals that can support the strengthening of your hair. It is packed with fatty acids and amino acids, and is rich in vitamins A, B12, C, E, and folic acid. These elements are instrumental in promoting healthy hair follicles, contribute to cell regeneration, healthy hair regrowth, minimal hair fall, and shiny, moisturized hair.

4. Hair Growth

Aloe Vera possesses a particular chemical component, called aloenin. Researchers believe that it is a principal factor in promoting healthy hair growth. It can improve your hair’s health and minimize hair breakage.

In addition to the aloenin, the antioxidants within the Aloe Vera plant form a protective layer on the hair shaft. These antioxidants are massively present in Aloe Vera and can protect your strands from undue discoloration and aging, which is another key factor in promoting healthy hair growth.

The Risks

According to WebMd.com, “In general, there are few risks in using aloe vera on your skin. Some people may be allergic to it and develop a skin rash. Check to be sure by rubbing a small amount on the inside of your wrist. Wait about 2 hours to see if your skin has any reaction.
If you’re using steroid creams such as hydrocortisone, be careful with aloe vera. It can increase the amount of cortisone absorbed by your skin.
Also be careful if you’re planning to consume aloe vera. Aloe vera latex and whole leaf extracts are probably unsafe in high doses. Side effects include kidney problems, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. There are also potential interactions with medications like anticoagulants and diabetes drugs.” (Dan Brennan, 2021)
