Amazing aloe vera gel is good both for dry hair and for oily hair. It can clear up scalp problems like dandruff and make your hair stronger. Because aloe vera gel makes your scalp healthier, it can help hair grow.

How it can it be good for both dry and oily hair? Aloe vera doesn’t contain any oils, but it moisturizes and is rich in nutrients, making it good for dry, brittle hair. At the same time, it has enzymes that eat up excess oil, so it’s good for oily hair, too.

It’s easy to use aloe vera gel as a pre-shampoo treatment. Dip a cotton ball into the gel, massage it across your scalp, wait 30 minutes, and then use a mild shampoo to wash it out. 

You can also use it to make different kinds of hair masks. Apply the hair mask, cover your head with a shower cap, and wait according to instructions. Then wash out with mild shampoo.
