Your hair needs vitamins and minerals to remain healthy and strong. What better way to get this than to use natural ingredients like coconut milk to revive your hair and control hair fall.

In countries like India, Aloe Vera is widely used for its medicinal properties. One of its most popular uses is to balance the pH levels of a person’s scalp and hair, while also promoting hair growth.

How to Use
Once you have boiled the stalk of Aloe Vera and have allowed it to cool down, you can extract the pulp. Ideally you should do this once you have washed your hair – massage the pulp into your scalp in a circular motion and let it be in your hair for 15 minutes. Then simply rinse it with water and dry your hair. You should do this twice or thrice a week to see the best results.
