What I used:-
  • 4 leaves of Aloe Vera (depends on your hair length and thickness)
  • ½ Avocado
  • ½  cup of Olive oil

What I did:-
I extracted the gel from the Aloe Vera and then added it in the blender together with the avocado and olive oil.
I spritz my hair with my ayurvedic hair tea before applying the mixture.
I let it sit for 30 minutes then rinsed it out.


Benefits of Aloe Vera  


Calms an itchy scalp
The fatty acids fod in Aloe Vera have anti-inflammatory properties which help solve scalp inflammation.

Strengthens and repairs hair strands
Aloe Vera contains vitamin A, C and E which contribute to cell turnover, promoting healthy cell growth and shiny hair.


Promotes hair growth
Aloe Vera helps repair hair follicles and heal scalp which leads to thicker hair.

Smoothens hair cuticle
Aloe Vera helps to close the cuticle which leads to increased shine and decreased friction between curls. Smoothening your hair can be very beneficial to your hair because it decreases tangles and knotting.

Gets rid of dandruff
Aloe Vera helps to restore the pH balance of the scalp and fight dandruff.

Penetrates and hydrates the hair shaft
Aloe Vera can give your hair stands the nutrients it needs since it has a lot of water inside its leaves.


Benefits of avocado


Strengthens the hair
Avocados are high in vitamin E, which works to protect and strengthen hair. They’re also rich in protein and vitamin B which is essential for optimal hair health.

Promotes hair growth
Its antioxidant properties can help keep hair follicles unclogged to allow nutrients in and stimulate growth.

Natural moisturizer
Having high level of monounsaturated fatty acids, avocados can be used to improve the condition of your hair by acting as a moisturizer for dry or damaged hair.
