THE BENEFITS OF ORGANIC ALOE VERA FOR HAIR
The EverEscents Organic Hair Care range of organic shampoo and conditioner contains the highest quality pure Australian Certified Organic ingredients and essential oils and does not contain any harsh chemicals.
One of the hero ingredients found in our Organic Shampoo and Organic conditioner is Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice. Aloe Vera leaf juice has many amazing benefits and is suitable for daily use on all hair and skin types.
Aloe vera is a succulent plant species of the genus Aloe. An evergreen perennial, it originates from the Arabian Peninsula but also grows wild in tropical, semi-tropical, and arid climates around the world. It is widely cultivated for agricultural and medicinal uses and is also used for decorative purposes and grows successfully indoors as a potted plant.
Aloe Vera is found in many modern consumer products including beverages, skin products, cosmetics and topical ointments.
Aloe Vera Gel, the clear gel like substance derived from the Aloe Vera leaf, is frequently used to make topical medications for skin conditions such as burns, wounds, frostbite, rashes, psoriasis, cold sores, or dry skin.
ALOE VERA LEAF JUICE FOR SCALP AND HAIR HEALTH
Research has suggested that the benefits of Aloe Vera for the hair and scalp may be largely due to its ability to stimulate blood circulation and improve delivery of oxygen and nutrition to hair follicles.
Aloe Vera is thought to be effective primarily because of its rich contents which include:
- Essential amino acids
- Minerals including copper and zinc (which are integral for hair growth)
- Plant steroids
- Fatty acids
In addition to these super ingredients, Aloe Vera is also thought to provide the following benefits for hair and scalp:
1. Smooths and Strengthens Hair
Aloe Vera has both emollient and moisturising properties, meaning that it smooths the cuticle surface as well as attracting and sealing in moisture. The pectin and sugar molecules contained in the Aloe Vera deliver moisture to the hair, and the amino acids and trace amounts of protein contained in the aloe vera strengthen the cortex of damaged hair.
2. Promotes Hair Growth
Aloe Vera is rich in proteolitic enzymes which help to remove the dead skin which can clog the pores of the scalp, hindering the growth of new hair follicles. By removing the build-up of sebum and dead skin cells, the scalp is left squeaky clean and primed for healthy new hair growth.
3. Maintains the pH balance
Aloe Vera has alkaline properties which help to maintain the pH level of the scalp and hair. This keeps the hair moisturised as well as promoting healthy hair growth.
EVERESCENTS ORGANIC SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
Certified Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice is a key ingredient in EverEscents Organic Hair Care products and can be found in all EverEscents Organic Shampoos and Conditioners.
Aloe Vera is beneficial for all hair types, especially for dry and damaged hair. Regular use of Aloe Vera in hair care has been shown to repair dead skin cells on the scalp, promote hair growth, prevent itching on the scalp, reduce dandruff and scalp conditions, acts as a great conditioner and leaves hair smooth and shiny.
These are just some of the reasons why we love Aloe Vera Leaf juice so much and are proud to include it in all of our shampoo and conditioners across the range.
