The title itself consists of ingredients that have innumerable benefits for our body but today let’s focus on the use of both for our Hair !!
For us all, be it Girls or Boys, having thick lustrous hair is of prime importance, mainly because that is one of the first things that get noticed about an individual.
Hair Care is something which is so important yet the most neglected. Even I get too lazy when it comes to oiling my hair but I make it a point to use this Aloe Vera Coconut Hair Oil at least once in two weeks !!
Those who regularly check my blogs know the flow of my every Beauty blog and so before we get into how to make this oil let’s first quickly list down the importance/benefits of both individually for our Hair!!
Benefits of Aloe Vera for Hair :
– Strengthens and Repairs Hair strands : Our hair is constantly exposed to pollution which causes adverse damage. Aloe Vera consists a variety of Vitamins (A,C & E) that help in the repair of our hair strands.
– Aids in reduction of Hair fall : The natural ingredients present in the form of Aloe Vera gel help strengthen the roots of your hair in turn reducing hair fall.
– Cleans your Scalp : Aloe Vera helps deep clean our scalp and the hair strands. It can help rinse off the excess oil and unclog the pores.
– Aloe Vera for Hair Growth : As mentioned, Aloe Vera deep cleans the scalp, hair and also provides it the required nutrition. This helps improve the hair follicle health and blood circulation which can promote re-growth of hair.
– Aloe Vera for Dandruff : The Aloe Vera gel contains anti-fungal properties that can help soothe an itchy scalp. It hydrates the scalp and effectively aids in fighting against dandruff.
Benefits of Coconut Oil for Hair :
– Moisturizes the Hair and Scalp : Moisturizing is important not only for our body but also the scalp and hair. Coconut oil massages on the scalp can be great for this.
– Prevents Split ends and Weak Hair : This is one of the most important benefit. Split ends is a huge problem faced by girls having long tresses. Formation of split ends require constant chopping of the ends which reduces the length of the hair every now and then. Coconut oil can prevents breakage of hair and occurrence of split ends.
– Prevents formation of Dandruff : A weekly warm Coconut oil hair massage not only strengths the scalp but also reduces its flaking that leads to the formation of dandruff. It helps your hair stay clean and away from dandruff.
– Increases the Volume of Hair : Every one wants to have thick and shiny hair. Coconut oil can be a good contributor of this. The ingredients and vitamins in the Oil can help increase the volume of your Hair.
– Soothes scalp irritation : A good hair oil massage helps soothes headache as well as scalp irritation. It helps increase the circulation of blood and keep scalp healthy.
Trying to keep it as precise and to the point as I can but it is always better to be well informed !!
