The summer season brings a rise in the salt content in water. This makes the water hard and slightly harmful for hair, leading to brittle ends. A gentle massage with coconut oil and aloe vera will protect hair from deep within and also make it soft and silky. It forms a protective layer over hair, keeping it safe from harmful environmental elements.
The mixture keeps hair moisturized by hydrating it from within. It thereby also helps maintain the pH balance of the hair. Not to mention, the anti-fungal properties in aloe vera ensure a healthy scalp and so, help resolve a number of problems that arise because of dry, itchy skin. Say goodbye to itchiness, irritation, and dandruff!

If hair loss is something you suffer from, then using aloe for hair growth is a great idea. The combination of aloe vera and coconut oil is known to be a natural hair growth accelerator. It adds volume to fine hair and prevents breakage.
