The Beauty of Aloe Vera

There are many natural gifts that exist around us.  If we pay attention to what Mother Earth has to offer, we might be surprised.  Once I owned an aloe vera plant.  My mother had given it to me and I was actually able to keep it alive for quite some time.  It only died when we moved, I guess I failed to care for it properly.  I'm quite positive that is the reason for its demise.

When I had the aloe vera plant, I would break a little off to retrieve the gel from within when I had a cut.  It is quite effective in healing cuts and scrapes.  It can also be used for healing scars and moisturizing dry skin.

I recently discovered its benefits for hair.  For the past three years, I have had a major problem with dry scalp and flaking.  I started doing a pre-treat on my hair prior to washing it.  I make several parts and apply the aloe vera gel to my scalp.  I leave it on my hair for a few hours and then wash my hair.  Since doing this, I have noticed a dramatic decrease in the amount of flaking I have had.  I anticipate that in a few more weeks, I may no longer have an issue with flakes.

Also, I am a culry haired gal.  I recently decided to no longer undergo chemical processes to straighten my hair.  As a result, I have started to use aloe vera get to moisturize my strands so they do not appear dry.

In the near future, I will get a new aloe vera plant.  In the meantime, I am getting my aloe vera gel fix from a bottle.  I am currently using Fruit of the Earth's 100% Aloe Vera Gel.  It is definitely doing the trick for now.
