Breaking news in the beauty world: aloe vera for hair is now a thing. That’s right, your go-to skin saviour is quite versatile! You may be well-versed in the miracles this plant works on skin, but your locks reap the love too. We take a closer look at this wonderous ingredient and why it’s a must-have in your haircare routine. Stronger strands start today with this game-changing succulent.


Natural Salon Secret: What Does Aloe Vera Do For Hair?


Aloe vera is hotter than ever in the beauty world. In fact, this succulent plant has been used for many centuries and has become more and more popular because it packs a host of benefits! But it’s not just for sun burns anymore… it has a tendency to store water in its spiky leaves, making it an effective natural moisturiser for basically everywhere on your body (hair too). In terms of applying it your locks, some aloe vera benefits include:


  • Similar pH levels to that of hair, making it an excellent aid for hair health
  • A high water content, which is especially useful as hydration is something hair can never get enough of
  • Rich in vitamins, minerals and active ingredients like iron, calcium, potassium, zinc and amino acids, which are proven to help with healthy hair and growth
  • Soothing for dry scalps whilst gently exfoliating dead skin cells
  • Reduces frizz and eases detangling


Solve Your Hair Woes With Aloe Vera For Hair: A 3-Step Routine


To reap the benefits of this savior plant, it all starts in the shower. Here’s how:


Step 1:

The first step in your journey to an organic haircare routine should start with the right range. The L’Oréal Professionnel Source Essentielle range contains hydrating aloe vera and other essential ingredients to give you the locks you’ve always dreamed of.


  • If you have normal to fine hair, you can’t go wrong with L'Oréal Professionnel Source Essentielle Daily ShampooMade from 80% natural origin ingredients, this silicone-free shampoo is the perfect way to gently cleanse your scalp whilst improving the condition of your hair. Hello shiny and supple strands!


  • For those with dry hair, L'Oréal Professionnel Source Essentielle Nourishing Shampoo is our favourite. Perfect for dry or frizzy hair, this silicone-free shampoo is made with 96% natural origin ingredients like jasmine flowers and sesame oil that will prove as the saving grace to your dry hair.


Step 2:

Up next, get masking with a balm mask.


If your hair is looking a little defeated (dry and frizzy), we love L'Oréal Professionnel Source Essentielle Nourishing Balm Mask. With 99% natural origin ingredients like sesame oil, this silicone-free mask is an au naturel way to revitalise your locks. After applying and rinsing out the mask, split ends will be left feeling silky-smooth- just how we like them.


Step 3:

The final step is to apply a detangling cream to make styling your strands a breeze.

We love L'Oréal Professionnel Source Essentielle Daily Detangling Cream. Designed for those with normal to fine hair, this silicone-free cream is made up of - you probably guess it! - 99% natural origin ingredients. A dollop of this cream applied to hair can bring hair out of a lacklustre-state by minimising split ends and breakage.


Good hair days in-tune with nature- try aloe vera for hair to liven up your locks.
