Aloe Vera For Everything

Aloe

 

I know that a lot of Spanish-speaking countries live by the power of aloe vera when it comes to hair care and skin ailments. Belizeans love this stuff. I heard that aloe vera heals scars and burns quickly. I know that scars are something A Lot of us struggle with and it is the hardest thing to get rid of. Some of us spend nights crying because we can’t see past the scars on our skin. Some of us are convinced that we are ugly because of scars and that leaves deeper scars on our minds and spirits. Scars are a hard thing to overcome and I don’t have a surefire solution because if I did honey I would bottle it up and sell it! But I have heard great things over time about the power of aloe on scars. “People have used it for centuries to treat skin infections, burns, wounds and other kinds of skin conditions. Due to its soothing, moisturizing and healing properties, aloe vera gel can be applied to scars to help the skin repair itself as well as lessen irritation.” Read more http://www.livestrong.com

I know people to just find an aloe vera tree and cut a piece of it off and just start squeezing the gel directly from the plant onto your skin.
Aloe not only heals scars but helps prevent acne you can rub the gel on the affected area twice a day. I read that you would see a difference in as little as one week.

Aloe is very good for dry hair. I found a ton of information on different hair products that have aloe vera in it. I have a list of hair care uses for aloe.

Oil
A little bit of Aloe Vera oil on your scalp stimulates the blood circulation. It removes the stress and gives you the feeling of being fresh again.

Gel
A little bit of Aloe Vera gel on the areas of the scalp where you are losing your hair, stimulates new hair growth. As I indicated earlier, Aloe Vera contains enzymes that stimulates new hair growth.
Aloe Vera gel also stimulates the growth of existing hair. The gel is most effective if used at the first sign of hair loss.
Beside stimulating hair growth, Aloe Vera is also a good treatment for greasy hair and dandruff. Aloe Vera gel contains no preservatives or coloring agents and is easy to apply.

Shampoo
Aloe Vera shampoo helps you in eliminating dandruff. It also prevents hair loss and nourishes your scalp making your hair healthier. Your hair gets soft, shiny, silky, smooth and thick. Use Aloe Vera shampoo every day if you like, as Aloe Vera has no side effects.

Hair, when exposed to chemicals, gets damaged. Off course it is better to avoid these chemicals as much as possible. Also if you are suffering from hair loss, the easiest step in this, you can control by yourself. Instead of chemical conditioners, you can use Aloe Vera conditioner. Aloe Vera conditioner is a natural product. Aloe Vera conditioner for silky, soft and smooth hair.

    I love aloe Vera!! When I was growing up we had an aloe Vera garden in our back yard. We’d juice it, use it for burns, skin blemishes, and also as a toner. When my mother had ovarian cancer 14 years ago, she would drink the juice as a way to detox. It’s nature’s medicine.
