I've heard that it's good for areas of the hair that don't grow (i.e. temples). I know my aloe vera gel at home has jojoba oil, vitamin e, and some other great ingredients. I just want to make sure it doesn't have any alcohol in it. If not, I'm going to put some on my scalp the night before I wash my hair!
Here are some aloe facts I found:
- Aloe Vera is a good way to treat hair loss. Many people use various products that contain aloe vera for maintaining thick and healthy hair.
- One can apply aloe Vera gel on the whole scalp and hair so as to treat hair loss.
- Aloe Vera includes the enzyme which is beneficial in stimulating the new hair production.
- Aloe Vera has been used by Native Americans, Indians and many in the Caribbean to promote healthy hair and prevent hair loss. Aloe’s positive effects on the skin are well known, and likewise it can help the scalp by healing it and balancing the pH level of the scalp while cleansing the pores.
Update 2/21/08: My gel has alcohol in it, so I won't be using it for my hair. The next time I see some 100% aloe vera gel, I'm buying it. I'll also get a plant after my move next month.
