Aloe Vera is a plant that has thick leaves with a gel-like substance inside of them. It’s found all over the world, and many people even grow their own. Aloe Vera has been used for centuries for its healing properties. But it has another application besides its skin benefits: It can actually strengthen your hair and make your scalp healthier. The best form of aloe Vera to use on your hair is the raw gel of the plant. You can buy this gel in almost any pharmacy or scoop it out of leaves cut fresh from a live plant if you have one. The gel is clear in color and slightly watery.
