Back in 2018, I did the “big chop” for the 1st time (currently on my 2nd round). I had already been natural for about 6 years but I felt like my hair wasn’t reaching its full potential and the only way for that to happen was to start completely over. I’ll admit, to have my hair cut low enough for my scalp to be visible shocked me. My hair had never been that short and I just wasn’t happy with the way I looked. I was so determined to figure out the fastest way to grow it back. This easy 3-ingredient hair growth spray was the answer to my prayers! I used it almost daily and highly recommended it others often. I grew my hair from less than an inch to waist length in just 3 years & I can honestly say this was the most consistent diy product that I used during my “hair-growth” journey.
In this post, we'll discuss the benefits of using aloe vera on your hair and provide you with an easy step-by-step recipe to create this fantastic DIY spray at home. So keep reading and let’s dive right in!
The Magic of Aloe Vera: Benefits for Your Hair
Aloe vera has been long revered for its incredible benefits for hair health. This humble succulent plant is packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids that work wonders on our tresses. Here are some of the advantages you can expect when using aloe vera on your hair:
Promotes Hair Growth: Aloe vera is known to encourage hair growth by improving blood circulation, thereby providing the necessary nutrients to your scalp and hair follicles.
Moisturizes and Hydrates Hair: Aloe vera's gel-like consistency effectively moisturizes and hydrates your curls, leaving them soft, lustrous, and easy to manage.
Reduces Dandruff and Relieves Scalp Irritation: Aloe vera's anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties help soothe scalp irritation and reduce dandruff, providing relief from itchiness and flakiness.
Strengthens Hair and Prevents Breakage: The nutrients in aloe vera, especially the vitamins B, C, and E, along with essential fatty acids, contribute to strengthening hair strands and preventing breakage.
Boosts Curl Definition and Refreshes: This spray is the ultimate curl refresher as it infuses your curls with moisture and revitalizes them, bringing them back to life.
