The Effects of Aloe Vera on Hair Loss

Since centuries ago, people had been using Aloe Vera, a short stemmed plant native to Northern Africa. It is about 90 cm tall. With thick leaves which are grayish green in color. It’s actually considered an herb which is most often utilized to heal wounds.

Because of its medicinal value, Aloe Vera can now be found in a variety of skin care materials like soaps, lotions, moisturizers, sunscreens and even shampoos. The Aloe Vera extract is also very useful in preventing loss of hair. It is good for hair and scalp.

There are some studies linking the efficacy of Aloe Vera use to Seborrhoea. When sebum mixes with dirt and eventually forms a crust, the condition is called Seborrhoea. As it afflicts the skin on the head, the crusts may possibly interfere with proper blood circulation. This will prevent the skin on the head to get the nutrition it needs and this can trigger hair loss leading to baldness.. Sebum is a natural oily substance secreted by hair glands, but if the hair glands produce excessive oil plus the combination of other substance, this can lead to some hair follicle infection. When you have Seborrhoea which is also a mild bacterial disease, the scalp becomes red and itchy and hair starts to thin and be fragile. Stress, fatigue and hormonal changes can also trigger the glands to produce excessive sebum.

Aloe Vera’s ph balancing property can limit the excessive sebum production. When this happens, it will trigger the renewal the follicular cycle. It helps the scalp return to a physiological balance. Most effective if used right after you notice the first sign of excessive hair loss. Aloe Vera gel or the thick gel like substance may do wonders if applied correctly. A minimum of two to three months should be observed prior to getting any substantial positive result. The dead hair follicles will continue shedding but will now be replaced by new growth.

Through the constant use of hair products containing Aloe Vera, your hair should soon start to grow. It will be shiny and healthier. There are commercially available Aloe Vera shampoos but you can also make your own. Mix about a spoonful of regular shampoo and twice the amount of Aloe Vera gel into a bowl and mix well.

If you do not have an Aloe Vera plant, you can also buy from stores selling all natural products and it is best to ask for 100% stabilized Aloe Vera gel.

As you continue to use the all-natural Aloe Vera gel substance from the plant, you should still seek professional advice.
