Aloe vera juice is a great natural resource for natural hair That’s because natural hair is naturally dry

The brand of aloe vera juice/aloe vera gel I prefer to use is Lily of the Desert which I purchase from Whole Foods It’s available made from the inner fillet and the whole leaf I’ve tried both and don’t much notice a difference when it comes to haircare so I stick with inner fillet which is cheaper than whole leaf I’m sure there’s a difference when consuming internally

The Lily of the Desert brand is also certified Kosher, 995% certified-organically grown (997% for the juice), it’s purity certified by the IASC (International Aloe Science Council) and packaged in BPA free plastic bottles

How I use Aloe Vera Juice

I keep two bottles of aloe vera juice in my refrigerator at all times One bottle is the original bottle that I purchase it in The second bottle is a small sprayer which I regularly transfer about 3 ounces of the juice into

On wash day I spray the aloe vera juice up and down my hair shaft after my final rinse Since cold water rinses (meant for sealing the cuticle) can be crazy shocking to the scalp, I forego it and use cold aloe vera juice in its stead

Spraying the juice onto my hair prevents the shock of having cold water run over the scalp

I also use aloe vera juice in a number of my DIY hair recipes

How I use Aloe Vera Gel

While the only difference between Lily of the Desert’s Aloe Vera Gel and Aloe Vera Juice is consistency, unlike my aloe vera juice, I reserve the aloe vera gel for smoothing my edges from time to time when I don’t want to use a products specifically for edge control When applying aloe vera gel to my edges, I’ll usually follow it with a thick layer of shea or mango butter

When I notice frizz along the top perimeter of my hair, I’ll smooth a little aloe vera gel over it to smooth it away and add back some of the curl definition

Last off, when I don’t want to use (or am running low) on my wash and go products, I’ll use aloe vera gel layered over a conditioner The result is a soft set wash and go that has lots of movement (although it doesn’t last as long as wash and go’s set with stronger holding gels)

Best Features

Incorporating aloe vera juice or aloe vera gel into my hair care routine has been beneficial in so many ways:

  • Helps to maintain moisture and can be sprayed on the hair for a burst of moisture at any time
  • It encourages curl definition
  • Helps seal the cuticle on wash day
  • Smooths frizz

Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice Ingredients:

997% organic aloe, citric acid (pH stabilizer), Potassium sorbet (a mold inhibitor

Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Gel Ingredients:

995% organic aloe, carrageenan (a natural thickening agent), citric acid (pH stabilizer), Potassium sorbet (a mold inhibitor

When you wash your hair, it’s recommended to do with very warm (not hot) water This allows the cuticles to open up so that you can cleanse your hair and deep condition it more effectively When you are done washing and conditioning your hair, you need to close those cuticles back up so that moisture won’t escape This is often done with a blast of cold water during the final rinse

Cold water rinses are very effective at closing your hair’s cuticle but they are also a shock to your scalp!

Enter Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice…

How I Use Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe Vera juice is one of those all natural products you will always find in my refrigerator No longer do I have to suffer with cold water freezing my scalp I use this pH balanced goodness to close my cuticles without putting my scalp in shock I keep the my Aloe Vera juice refrigerated in a spray bottle and spritzed throughout my hair after my final tepid water rinse

Aloe Vera juice is also great for when I’m in the mood to bring out my inner mixtress 🙂 It can be used in many homemade hair recipes

Often times, I’ll substitute the brand of Aloe Vera gel photographed (Lily of the Desert) in my DIY hair product recipes That’s because the gel is really more like a jelly The second it comes in contact with your fingers, it liquefies It works great for smoothing my edges too!
