Here is my very simple aloe vera hair mask that I make whenever my hair is too damn dry.
Okay I know... apparently I did this video with invisible containers. I swear I'll do better next time. But I just wanted you to see how I get this done. (Plus baby girl wouldn't let me great today so no chance to rerecord )
I get my aloe vera leaf at the local supermarket. Usually for $1.
In the beginning you can cut as big of a piece as you want for your hair mask it all depends on the thickness and length of your hair. The thicker and longer the bigger of a piece you would need to cut.
I then scrape out the pulp of the leaf into a cup and add a little bit of water.
Mix it in a blender until you see it frothy.
Now it's important to use a strainer when pouring the liquid into a container because it will remove any little white pulp that may stay behind the hair.
And that's it. I add it to my hair when it's wet (sometimes after a shampoo) and I leave it in for about 30 mins then rinse it out.
You can add any oils you want as well to boost up moisture or growth with this liquid.
That's what so good about it. You can alter it depending on your needs.
Let me know if you decide to try it .
Hair Growth Tips
I did a mini chop back in September and sometime in November I began my journey to long hair (again... 3rd time to be exact) that would be the picture on the upper left-hand corner.
I've been experimenting with a few items and have found some that have worked wonders on my hair. As you can see in the bottom right-hand picture the shape of my hair has changed and that's pretty much because my hair has grown a bit. I never really do length checks because I know that when my hair has grown the shape has changed. When my curls grow out they get heavier and grow down. But here are the few things that I found out that hopefully can work out well for you as well
Tip 1 🔸SCALP MASSAGES
This here has always been something that I have done but never consistently. And what I mean by consistently is at least doing it 2 to 3 times a week. With the scalp massages I have been using @righteousrootsoils which has a combination of black Jamaican castor oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, and eight additional natural organic oils. I've also been using this oil as a hot oil treatment every two weeks to maintain moisture and strength in my hair. All these ingredients help with not only growth but a healthy scalp and stronger strands.
TIP 2 🔸PRODUCTS WITH ALOE VERA
Now growing up in a Latino home believe me we used aloe vera for everything. But I never really paid attention to the products that I had at home and the fact that they had aloe vera and it was helping me out this whole entire time. Aloe vera promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair. It's also great for all hair types no matter if your low porosity or high or even if you have fine hair of thicker coily hair.

LOVE THIS!!! Check out this great #repost from one of my favorite client homies that we recently changed up from several years of green hair to some rad #ultraviolet#purple tones! Repost from @ljpinko #TopRankRepost “Yesterday was really the first time I looked at my hair in the mirror and was like 😮Okay noooowww I'm starting to fall in love with the purple. You made me a believer @clarabbm @addystarshine @sicaiscool 😏😍💜”
This is my hair with absolutely nothing in it! I used to hate my frizz and because of it I would rarely wear my hair out in an afro like in the photo. But I’ve learned to love it and let my hair be free! 💫 #NoProductChallenge ✨
Since my hair is in braids, I’ll be posting throwbacks until I decide to take them out! (Let’s hope I can resist for at least a couple more weeks 😅) #naturalhair#coloredcurls#coloredhair#noproduct#frizz
