Numerous cosmetics and health products rely on the healing power of aloe vera. No wonder, the juice of the green plant is a real blessing for the skin, hair and health: in addition to the vitamins A, B, C, it also contains a complex carbohydrate called acemannan, which helps nutrients to penetrate cells very quickly.

But not only the skin is good for aloe vera, even dry and damaged hair can use the effect of aloe well. Here the vegetable gel acts nourishing, cleansing and protective. With regular use, the hair benefits especially from the effect.

As a research group from the University of Hawaii now found out, Aloe Vera was already used by the ancient Egyptians as a beauty elixir, for example to treat hair loss. Aloe vera contains enzymes that rid the skin of dead cells. These skin cells can namely block the hair follicles and thus block access to important nutrients. If you use aloe vera, these skin cells are dissected; the hair can grow better. Also, aloe vera can help to balance the pH, which is true not only for the skin, but also for the hair. By having a balanced pH, they can store more water and moisture, which also helps growth.
