What’s a girl to do to speed up the process? Well, a girl could use simple home remedies that boost hair growth.

Aloe vera is pretty much an awesome, easy to use remedy, often overlooked. Aloe vera boasts a vast repository of amino acids and proteolytic enzymes which efficiently help improve scalp health and boost hair growth. And so to make the hair growth process a whole lot easier, I’ve put together a list of the 15 different ways you can use aloe vera to boost hair growth. First, let’s look at how aloe vera benefits hair.

Benefits Of Aloe Vera For Hair
A lot of people frequently ask me “is aloe vera good for your hair?” And “what does aloe vera do for your hair?” The answer to the first question is—Yes! Aloe vera is great for your hair! I might sound like I’m exaggerating here, but aloe vera is one of the most magical and beneficial ingredients you could put in your hair. Don’t believe me? You don’t have to. But you can’t dispute these facts:

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.
Not only does the proteolytic enzyme help heal the scalp, but it also helps stimulate dormant hair follicles, promoting hair regrowth.
It also helps curb hair fall and controls hair shedding, ensuring that your hair remains thick and voluminous.
It has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe your scalp of irritation and aggravation.
Its antifungal and antiviral properties to treat dandruff and flaking.
Aloe vera’s high content of protein, vitamins, and minerals help it nourish your follicles and hair efficiently.
The moisture content of aloe vera helps condition your hair, locking in nutrients and hydration.
With those questions answered, let’s look at the different ways of using aloe vera in your hair care routine.
