Heat, humidity and pollution is a combination that can take a toll on your hair. But you can care for it with the combined goodness of aloe vera and coconut oil, suggest experts. Here are some benefits of aloe vera and coconut oil that will make your summer hair softer and healthier, as pointed out by hair experts.
Natural protection from hard water: The summer season sees a rise in the salt content in water which makes it hard and slightly harmful for hair and can make your hair brittle. A gentle massage with coconut oil mixed with aloe vera will protect hair from deep within and also make it soft and silky. Alongside, it also keeps hair moisturised and naturally hydrated and helps maintain the pH balance of your hair. Aloe vera’s anti-fungal properties also ensure a healthy scalp, therefore helping you solve a number of problems that arise because of dry, itchy scalp. Repairs the hair, locks from within: They are both enriched with conditioning properties. Aloe vera contains healing enzymes which repair dead skin cells on the scalp. And together with coconut oil, it eliminates dullness from one’s hair.
Boosts hair growth: Coconut oil is a safe, effective and reasonably priced solution if you have thinning hair. It can actually help grow hair longer and thicker. The essential nutrients, including the lauric acid, penetrate the hair shaft and improve the overall health of the hair. Aloe vera contains proteolytic enzymes, which help heal and repair the damaged cells in your scalp. This improves the health of the hair follicles and indirectly boosts healthy and faster hair growth.
