Hi Queens! Today’s DIY topic is all about Aloe Vera! Did you know the chemical makeup of Aloe Vera is very similar to that of the keratin makeup of our hair strands? According to Diane Gage, author of Aloe Vera: Nature’s Soothing Healer says, “Keratin, the primary protein of hair, consists of amino acids, oxygen, carbon, and small amounts of hydrogen, nitrogen, and sulphur. Aloe vera has a chemical make up similar to that of keratin and it rejuvenates the hair with its own nutrients, giving it more elasticity and preventing breakage.” This makes aloe vera a great ingredient to strengthen hair strands. The proteolytic enzymes found in Aloe Vera are known to repair dead skin cells on the scalp. This is especially beneficial if you are dealing with scalp issued like dandruff and scalp psoriasis.
Besides strengthening the hair, Aloe Vera is also a great conditioning agent for the hair. It strips excess oil from the hair strands, and promotes hair growth by increases blood flow to the scalp. It can also prevent hair breakage and decrease shedding because it increased blood flow to the scalp. It’s also an excellent conditioner, it contains Vitamin A, C, E, B-12 and folic acid, Vitamins A,C, and E helps to promote healthy cell growth and shiny hair, and Vitamin b-12 and folic acid aids in preventing hair from falling out!
