Aloe Vera, often referred to as "the burn plant" or "the healing plant", is a short stemmed plant approximately 90 cm tall.

Its leaves are thick, fleshy and grayish green in color. Aloe produces a yellowish flower on a spike toward the top. Aloe Vera is generally used to treat various skin conditions including cuts and scrapes, and very commonly used for burns such as excessive sunburn.

Aloe Vera is considered as a miraculous plant by some for even hair loss treatment. It is assumed that no other plant more closely matches the human body's biochemistry, hence, an excellent treatment for hair loss.

Androgenetic Alopecia

It has anti-inflammatory properties of and therfore helps in fighting against Androgenetic Alopecia. Aloe Vera is an "active" ingredient in a few hair loss remedies and is also sold as a stand alone product in local drug stores.

It's widely believed that Aloe Vera is good for hair and scalp. Aloe Vera shampoos have been around for years. Also, Aloe Vera acts as a natural hair conditioner and can be used as an effective alternative to chemical based conditioners.

One should reduce the amount of chemicals you put in your hair if you are suffering from excessive hair loss, reducing is an important first step. Aloe Vera used for hair loss therapy as a gel or herbal hair shampoo (Aloe Vera as one of the ingredient) works wonder for hair loss caused because of Seborrhoea.

Seborrhoea is caused when the body produces excess amount of sebum. Sebum is secreted by hair glands and is a natural oily substance.

The excess secreted sebum spreads over the surface of the scalp, spread infection which can damage the hair follicles. Seborrhoea is actually a mild bacterial disease and can be brought on by a number of different factors. The scalp becomes red and itchy and the hair will become thin and fragile.

Aloe Vera gels also curb excessive hair loss by renewing the follicular cycle. This is achieved by helping the scalp return to a physiological balance. Aloe Vera hair gels activate fresh growth and stimulate the growth of existing hair. They are very effective if used at the first sign of excessive hair loss.

If you are experiencing excessive hair loss, then begin your treatment with a combination of both Aloe Vera gel and herbal hair shampoo.

You may use Aloe Vera directly from an Aloe Vera plant, however, the use of a 100% stabilized Aloe Vera gel is highly recommended. Like with most of the hair loss treatments, Aloe Vera therapy should also be continued for minimum of two to three months.
