Here are some benefits of this powerful mixture that will make your summer hair softer and healthier, as pointed out by Indian hair experts Aparna Santhanam and Sania Singh.
Makes hair silky and soft
The natural goodness of aloe vera combined with a host of beneficial properties gives your hair the strength and sheen you have always wanted. Besides the proteolytic enzymes, aloe vera’s high content of protein, vitamins and minerals also nourish the hair follicles efficiently, improving the overall texture of the hair. And we all know how good soft and silky hair feels…
Offers a natural protection from hard water
The summer season brings a rise of the salt content in water. This makes the water hard and slightly harmful for hair, leading to brittle ends. A gentle massage with coconut oil and aloe vera will protect hair from deep within and also make it soft and silky. It forms a protective layer over hair, keeping it safe from harmful environmental elements.
The mixture keeps hair moisturized by hydrating it from within. It thereby also helps maintain the pH balance of hair. Not to mention, the anti-fungal properties in aloe vera ensure a healthy scalp and so, help resolve a number of problems that arise because of dry, itchy skin. Say goodbye to itchiness, irritation and dandruff!
Repairs the hair from within
Both aloe vera and coconut oil are enriched with conditioning properties. The former contains healing enzymes that repair dead skin cells on the scalp. Together with coconut oil, it eliminates dullness from the hair shaft.
Boosts hair growth
If hair loss is something you suffer from, then using aloe for hair growth is a great idea. The combination of aloe vera and coconut oil is known to be natural hair growth accelerators. It adds volume to fine hair and prevents breakage.
