Aloe Vera – Conditioner for Hair Loss

Submitted by on Thursday, 10 June 20103 Comments

Aloe Vera has been used for centuries as a skin and hair conditioner. It has also been used to treat hair loss because it balances the pH of the scalp, cleanses the pores, and naturally treats seborrhoea, caused by bacteria growing on the natural oils of the scalp, or sebum. (There are many causes of hair loss, such as hypothyroid and more, so check with your doctor if the problem persists.)

Aloe and Coconut Conditioner
Combine aloe vera gel gel with coconut milk (1/2 and 1/2) for the benefits of these two powerful healing plants. Coconut kills pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, softens the hair, and conditions the scalp.

Mix up just enough as you need for your hair. Slather the mixture on your hair, taking time to massage your scalp as you go. Cover with a towel and let set for 20 minutes. Shampoo as usual.

General Aloe Conditioner
This is a conditioner adapted from Mary Beth Janssen’s excellent Naturally Healthy Hair.Moisturizing and cleansing, it is a good conditioner for all hair types.

1/3 cup aloe vera gel
Juice of ½ lemon (or 1 Tablespoon)
4-6 drops essential oil(s) of your choice

Mix well; add to shampooed hair, leave on for 5 minutes, rinse.

  • Many people use Aloe Vera for thicker and healthier hair. It works. You can apply it to any part of the scalp and it can promote hair re-growth or prevent hair from falling out.
