I recently found this on http://www.add-hair.com/circulation-enhancers-hair-regrowth-activators.htm :
'Aloe vera is a wonderful product. Aside from it's well known moisturizing effects, it contains many of the products that seem to be effective in fighting hair loss. Like biotin, b-vitamins, zinc and even inositil. It also has anti-bacterial properties that help keep the scalp healthy, controling the bodies immune response which we know can have adverse effects on hair growth. In addition the moisturizing qulities when applied to the scalp increases the blood circulation to the hair follicle.
Aloe-Vera in the Strategy
Keeps scalp healthy thanks to its anti-biotic properties.
Promotes hair growth due to the many hair friendly vitamins it contains.
Increases blood circulation to the hair follicles.'
I do use Aloe Vera everyday, (I have a slight obsession with this multi-purpose plant) it is very good at keeping hair straight and I have been using it as a substitute for straightening my hair. Okay so it doesn't work as well as GHD's but defiantly tames frizz better than any anti-frizz product I have used before.
To the right is one of my seven Aloe Vera plants, luckily this one hasn't been as hacked away as the other ones lol.
