How to use aloe vera for hair growth?

Aloe vera can either be used on its own or can be mixed with various other ingredients to make hair masks that promote hair growth.

1. Aloe vera with castor oil

To promote natural hair growth and boost volume, mix aloe vera with castor oil. Take a cup of aloe vera gel and add two tablespoons of castor oil to it. Apply to the scalp evenly and cover your hair strands. You may cover your head with a shower cap and let it sit for 2-3 hours. Cleanse your hair and rinse it off using mild shampoo.

2. Aloe vera with onion juice

Aloe vera, when combined with onion juice, makes a deadly combination for hair growth. Onion juice is widely known to stimulate the scalp, and clear out clogged hair follicles while promoting hair growth. Also, onion juice has a high sulfur concentration that gives a boost to collagen production, further curbing hair loss.

Mix equal parts of aloe vera and onion juice. Apply this mixture to your scalp evenly and rinse it off after 30-45 minutes using a mild shampoo. This natural remedy can be done twice a week.

3. Aloe vera with green tea

Green tea is healthy for hair growth. High in catechins that prevent hair fall, green tea reduces dihydrotestosterone which is responsible for hair loss. Mix a cup of aloe vera and freshly brewed green tea and mix them well. Massage and apply this mixture onto your scalp with gentle hands and apply it evenly covering all your hair strands. Rinse it off with cool water after applying it for 15-20 minutes.

4. Aloe vera with amla

Amla or gooseberry can prevent hair fall, accelerate hair growth, and prevents premature greying. Mix amla juice or powder with aloe vera gel and apply it evenly to your scalp. Let it sit for an hour or so, and rinse off with normal water. This remedy can be used daily for healthy and voluminous hair.
