How To Pick The Best Aloe Vera Shampoo For You - And Why Is It A Miracle Hair Care Product. 

Why use Aloe Vera Shampoo for your hair? Simple really…it's because its gentle, it's natural and it works. ☺  

Beautiful, healthy hair is something that everyone desires. How many products have you used in your search to acquire strong, shiny and a healthy hair...Lots I bet.

On top of wanting to look beautiful, we also want to focus on 'clean living' and living as natural as possible. We all know how important (and what the consequences are to us) if we don't reduce the amount of nasties (chemicals), being used on our bodies....and on your hair.

Why use shampoos that are nasty and full of chemicals, when you can use Aloe Vera Shampoo as an alternative? 

How Aloe Vera Shampoo Can Help You. 

  1. Aloe Vera has natural medicinal benefits. It has been used as a natural beauty and first aid treatment for centuries. As a hair care treatment it deeply nourishes and promotes good health for your hair.
  2.  Everyday living and stress all contribute to hair damage...Split ends, lifeless dull hair, hair loss and breakage are all a part of life in today's busy world. Aloe Vera is an excellent natural conditioner for the hair. It smoothes the hair shaft and makes hair shinier, glossier, more manageable and healthier. It helps repair hair damage in the process.
  3. 'Clean Living' - Aloe Vera Shampoo is natural; it is both effective and safe to use. You don’t have to worry about exposing your hair and scalp to harmful chemicals.
  4. While some people claim that it can help reduce hair falling out, others say that it cures dandruff.
  5. Extracting the gel of a natural Aloe Vera plant can be a messy task. Using pre-made Aloe Vera Shampoo is convenient and effective (without all the pain, effort and mess of making it yourself)!
  6. Aloe Vera shampoo helps to promote hair growth. 
  7. It has the capacity to treat various scalp diseases and health issues.
  8. As a shampoo, it leaves a protective layer on the hair that works against external damage. 
  9. Aloe Vera hair care products are easily available and affordable!
  10. Its natural properties make it effective so you can use it every day.
  11. Nearly all Aloe shampoo is eco friendly. Make sure you still read the ingredients list on the packaging so you know what is in it. One of the most popular Aloe shampoo's I have found, is actually just a cocktail of nasty chemicals, with a dash of Aloe Vera in it. There are also lots of organic shampoo brands that use Aloe in their formulas. 

How To Make Your Own Home Made Aloe Vera Shampoo

If you like to experiment and make your own shampoo, this is a cool recipe that you may want to try out.

1.     Collect all ingredients- liquid castile soap (olive oil soap), Aloe Vera gel, glycerin, and vegetable oil. The gel can be bought off a market shelf or even extracted from a plant.

2.     Mix ingredients - Measure out 1/4 cup (60 ml) each of castile soap and Aloe Vera gel, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of glycerin, and 1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) of vegetable oil. Add each of these ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir them gently together with a spoon or whisk. Add a few drops of essential oil if desired (for an uplifting aroma). This mix makes about half a cup (120 ml), but the amounts can be altered to make more or less shampoo.

3.     Store - Set a plastic or glass bottle onto your work surface.. Place a funnel into the top of the bottle, and then pour the shampoo from the mixing bowl into the funnel. Wipe up any spills before placing the cap onto the bottle.

4.     Uses- Aloe Vera shampoo is mild and can be used daily. Always shake the bottle well before using as the ingredients can settle down over time.

The 5 Steps To Choosing The Best Aloe Shampoo For You.

Here are the 5 steps to getting the right Aloe shampoo, for you.

Step 1) Make sure its the right shampoo for your hair type...Read the label on the bottle.  

Step 2) READ the ingredients list carefully to make sure you know what you are putting on your hair. 

Step 3) Purchase a Aloe shampoo with the least amount of chemicals in it as possible. The best place to find great Aloe shampoo brands is on line or from your local health shop. 

Step 4) Trial them out... Expect to try a few different brands before you find the perfect one that is made for your hair (Remember everyone is different, no hair is the same).

Step 5) Use in conjunction with an Aloe Vera Conditioner, or use natural Aloe Vera gel in your hair. They both works wonders as an extra conditioning treatment.
