Aloe Vera for Hair Growth? Debunking the Myth

Unique Hair Concepts

There is a lot of information out there about growing healthy hair. It is very common for individuals to read about various methods for hair growth and immediately believe they are authentic. The problem is there is a lot of misinformation out there. One of the common myths that many people believe is that about aloe Vera. Now, there are many benefits to this natural product and it can offer some benefits to some individuals. However, there is much more to know about aloe vera before you decide to use it for your needs, especially if you want to see your hair grow.

What Do People Say About Aloe Vera?

Aloe Vera has been talked about for hair for a variety of reasons. First, this topical product is derived from the Aloe Vera plant. The plant’s long, thick stalks have a milky, thick substance within them – that’s the Aloe Vera that is added to a variety of products. It works a lot like oils, but it is not sticky and not as heavy. It feels very natural. It works well for various reasons including to help encourage natural shine. Aloe Vera also is well recognized as a solution for those who want to add it as a conditioner.

There is some information out there that promises that Aloe Vera is beneficial for hair growth. They also note that it can help to soothe the scalp and help to reduce the amount of flaking you have. That is true – it does a good job of soothing inflamed skin, and it is a good option for reducing dry skin that can lead to dandruff. It can also work well for conditioning because of its texture. However, when it comes to improving hair growth, that is where the limitations are.

Aloe Vera Does Not Help with Hair Loss

If you have hair loss, such as male pattern baldness, you are not going to see much benefit from applying Aloe Vera on the skin. There are many reasons for hair loss, of course. However, this natural product does not provide you with the best overall production or really any benefit.

When Can Aloe Vera Help You?

Of course, it is important to say that Aloe Vera is not likely to hurt you either. Unless you have an allergy to it, there really isn’t anything it will do to harm your skin. It can help to restore some level of moisture to the skin on the head, which can be beneficial to those who have drying out or flakes on their balding areas. Aloe Vera also has the ability to work on areas where you have hair growing, but the scalp is dry.

There is some indication that Aloe Vera can be beneficial to help with skin redness and irritation. It does have a natural ability to soothe the skin – which can prove beneficial to some people who have psoriasis-related hair loss or scalp damage. It can help to reduce scaling up of the skin for those who have this condition as well.
If you want to use Aloe Vera as a way to treat your skin and to encourage moisture in your hair, go for it. It can be used in a rather simplistic manner by applying it to your scalp and hair and washing it out during your normal shampooing process.

Yet, there is no real information that indicates Aloe Vera has any real ability to help stimulate hair growth. For that, it is important for you to take into consideration what is causing your hair loss and then to find treatment options that can help to reverse this. Most men and women can see some hair growth attributed to accurate treatment. Use Aloe Vera as a way to soothe your skin and to reduce redness, though it may not do much else.
