Aloe Vera Juice For Hair, Health and Skin

Hi Maicurlies,

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:

  • Indigestion
  • 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.

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.

Thanks

DIY (Spray) Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner Video Uploaded

Good Morning Maicurlies,

leave-in conditioner

I am starting with my “Daily Routine Series” videos on YouTube as I finished off my “Weekly Routines Series”. My Daily Routines consist of two parts: Moisturizing my hair and then Sealing in that moisture. The first video demonstrates how I mix my “DIY (Spray) Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner”. You can see the video here or read through my mix under the “Mai Hair Routines” Tab titled “DIY Leave-In Spray”. 

My spray is really “light” and therefore I use this when my hair only needs a little moisturizing. I usually use this in the morning on days when my hair is not extremely dry and will occasionally also use it at night (before bed) just to make sure my hair remains supple and moisturized. 

What is your favorite “light” moisturizer?

Thanks
