As a leave in conditioner
Create a leave in conditioner for your hair by combining 3 tablespoons of aloe vera gel with an equal quantity of water to create a runny liquid. Then add in 2 – 3 drops of lavender essential oil. Mix it together and transfer it to a spray bottle to spritz your hair with after a shower.
Aloe gel is light in texture, which is ideal to keep the hair follicle free from dirt and grime to encourage new hair strands to grow. It is also a humectant, which attracts moisture, helping the hair stay hydrated.
As a hair rinse
For a hair rinse to help your hair grow long and bouncy, mix 50 ml of aloe vera juice with 30 ml of water and 10 ml of vinegar. Once your shower is done, turn your head upside down and pour the aloe vera potion on your hair as a final rinse.
While the aloe vera will provide ample moisture to your strands, when combined with vinegar, it clarifies the scalp to release buildup and promote hair growth.
As a hair mask
For the full power of aloe vera use it in a hair mask. Make a mixture of 5 tablespoons of aloe vera pulp, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of powdered fenugreek powder. Apply this mixture over your scalp and hair lengths, leave it for an hour and wash it off with warm water.
This incredibly nourishing mask will moisturise your hair and do away with any damage, which will help it grow out long and lusciously.
