Why You Should Use Aloe Vera on Hair
Curly hair tends to get dry more quickly than other hair types. It can hold your scalp’s natural oils at the root, the curls preventing the oils from traveling all the way down the strand. Therefore, you want to be sure you’re consistently restoring moisture throughout your hair. According to the hair blog, Provital, aloe’s amino acids and proteins make it an emollient, both attracting and sealing in moisture. They also note that retaining moisture in your strands could result in less hair breakage.
And if that wasn’t enough, aloe vera can also strengthen your hair. According to an article published in the International Journal of Natural Therapy, aloe is one of the only naturally occurring sources of vitamin B12. It also contains many other vital nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins A, C and E. These vitamins, as you may have read in our article, “Vitamins for Healthy, Strong Hair,” are essential for all hair types.
