Alternatively, you can also just apply pure aloe vera gel directly to your hair every time before you hop in the shower. No need for any other added ingredients! According to scientific research, aloe vera has the capability to improve blood circulation which in turn promotes hair growth!

We highly recommend you grow your own aloe vera plant as it can be so immensely useful! Not only does it encourage hair growth, but can also help with a slew of other problems such as:

  • Acne and oily skin
  • Aging skin
  • Eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis
  • Nail fungus
  • Dandruff
  • Helps with digestion
  • Improves overall health

#1. Select Your Leaves

Start by cutting off 2 (or more) large aloe leaves. This is usually sufficient to make 1/2-1 cup of aloe vera gel which is plenty. Because there are no preservatives added, it will go bad much quicker than commercial ones, so just make smaller batches when you need them!

Cut off two bottom leaves – the leaves all the way at the bottom of the aloe plant are the most mature and will contain more pulp.

#2. Drain the Resin

Once cut, place them in a bowl with the cut side down so that the resin will drain. This resin can stain the skin and also irritate it, so leave it to dry for about 10 minutes.

#3. Peel the Leaves

Once the resin has drained, go ahead and peel the leaves using a vegetable peeler of a knife. If using a knife, make sure to be careful not to cut yourself, and always slice away from your body. Peel off both sides of the leaves, which will leave you with only the gel part of the aloe.

Using a small spoon, scoop out all of the gel from the leaf. The gel should easily come off with a spoon. Place the gel into a bowl.

#4. Scoop Out The Aloe Gel

#5. Preservation

If you intend to make a bigger batch, consider adding a natural preservative. This will ensure that your aloe vera gel will keep for a month or two. Mix in 500mg of powdered vitamin C or 400iu vitamin E for every 1/4 cup of gel. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

#6. Storage

If you’re not using a preservative, the gel will keep for a week or two. In either case, the aloe vera gel should be kept in a clean, airtight jar or container in the refrigerator.

#7. Usage

Your new aloe vera gel can now be used on your skin to soothe burns, get rid of acne, prevent cellulite, prevent wrinkles, and also reduces the appearance of dark circles, dark spots, and acne scars. Aloe vera can also be used as a hair mask to promote healthy, shiny hair as well as hair growth.
