This is going to be more of a “I’m so excited I had to share” post! If you have not already noticed I am a big fan of Aloe Vera and with good reason too (if you ask me.) I do not want to repeat myself but it is great for our hair and skin.
Some people will actually add AVJ to their drinks because when ingested it is known to help:
- Detoxify the body of toxins
- Boost the immune system
- Increase energy levels …and much more
Keep in mind that it is known to be a “mild laxative” and is also known to lower blood sugar levels therefore you should consult your doctor/physician before consuming AVJ.
Now when it comes to our hair AVJ is known to:
- Maintain the pH level of the hair and scalp
- Promote Hair Growth
- Eliminate itchy scalp and scalp dryness
- Reduce hair loss
- Reduce Dandruff
- Acts as a conditioning agent
- Restore shine and luster
- Help fight against Alopecia
As a skin care agent AVJ is known to:
- Prevent early signs of ageing
- Reduce irritations caused by shaving
- Help keep the skin supple and rejuvenated
- Heal small cuts and wounds
- Sooth insect bites
- Brighten and reduces blemishes
- Reduce hyper pigmentation
- Moisturise the skin
- Remove dead cells
- heals cuts and wounds, dermatitis and also insect bites
I honestly just wanted to showcase the fact that I got not one but two HUGE plants and one little one!
I normally would “borrow” a few leafs from my mother’s plant whenever I could so I finally decided to get some and here are a few pictures of the leafs I cut.
Freshly Cut Aloe Vera
Split down the middle
Cut open and then scrape out the pulp
Look at how HUGE they are! I am so excited.
The “baby” plant needs TLC in order for it to grow but grow it shall!
Alright enough raving for today!
P.S. I have already touched upon the benefits of AVJ and how I use it in my DIY Hair Gel and my DIY Creamy Leave-In Conditioner and Spray Leave-In Conditioner.
