Revisiting Aloe Vera


Last month, I did a video talking about products that my hair hates but other naturals love, and one of the products was Aloe Vera. While I was transitioning, I used Aloe Vera Juice and discovered that instead of it moisturizing my hair, it actually caused it to be drier.

After reading about all the benefits of using Aloe Vera in your natural hair, I decided to revisit the product.

Here are the benefits (Source: http://blackgirllonghair.com/2012/01/4-hair-benefits-of-aloe-vera/):
  • Promotes hair growth
  • Nourishes shampoo
  • Prevents dandruff
  • Natural conditioner
I have been using aloe vera as my final rinse, in my spritz bottle occasionally, and using the gel to style my hair and to kill any acne that pops up.

Sidenote: Aloe Vera Gel dries up my acne in 2 days! AMAZING!!

I love the results and my hair is loving it too!! Yeah!!


This just proves to show that sometimes when products don't work, give them a try later on in your natural journey... you might be surprised.


Do you use Aloe Vera Juice/Gel?

  2. Is the juice and gel the same thing?

    1. They are not the same. The main ingredients are the same; Aloe Vera. However, the gel contains other ingredients that the juice does not. If you have an aloe vera plant, you could create your own purer version.
