It is needless to say how beneficial is Aloe Vera for both Skin and hair.It has its own added benefits when consumed internally too. I know it may be difficult for some of you to get those fresh Aloe Vera leaves straight from the plant. But trust me, just make a little effort to get those leaves for this time from your nearest local store or just buy a plant and put it into your balcony. This is the right time.

Actually it’s funny to say you guys, but I Bought mine from my neighbor. I pleaded her to just give me two leaves from the her Aloe Vera Plant. And No guys, I’m not being Frugal or economical , just that I’m just lazy AF to go out and get the Plant/ Leaves LOL 😛 . But next time  I’ll get the plant for sure, I’m not gonna beg my neighbor again. :/

Miraculous benefits of Aloe Vera hair oil

I’ll Call this not as a hair oil but  a powerful hair tonic. Aloe Vera contains many nutritious values and various vitamins like C, A, B1, B2 etc.

  • Reduces hair fall
  • Increases hair growth
  • perfect cure for dry and itchy scalp
  • Makes hair thick and helps to regrow hair
  • Hair feels so smooth, soft and silky after every wash after doing a hot oil massage with this oil

Herbal or natural remedies take time to show results and it may also vary on person to person on how fast it works. But unlike your store bought hair oils filled with chemicals  are so harmful if used in the long run. Just take your time and have patience to seen noticeable results.

I suggest to use this hair oil twice weekly and do a nice hot oil massage and just relax. Leave it on for 5-6 hrs or overnight and wash off with a herbal shampoo and condition as usual.

Edit #1

To all the ones who have doubts on how, when and at till what time the oil should be boiled, It depends upon the amount of Aloe Vera gel you are using and also the amount of oil. Here is a picture showing how the gel becomes dry when all the water content in it is evaporated. At this point you can off the stove and stain the oil into a glass jar after the oil cools down at room temperature.

    1. You should boil the gel in the oil until all the water content has evaporated and the gel looks dried. At this point you can off the stove and stain the oil into a clean glass jar. Remember to put the stove in medium flame till the whole process completes.

    1. Yes, You are right. You should heat the Aloe vera gel in the coconut oil till all the water content in the gel evaporates. This will make sure that the oil is moisture free and can be stored for at least 6 months.

      Hope this helps.

  3. hibiscus is very gud for hair growth literally, my mother told n she got best results vid mandara taila(hibiscus hair oil)

    1. Its a good hair conditioner too, regular application of hibiscus hair masks or hair oil will make hair smooth and manageable.

    1. Hi ruth, Yes you can store the oil in a glass container and it will have a shelf life of 6 months. You can use the oil till 6 months once you prepare it. Hope this helps. 🙂

    1. No V, I did not get this recipe from any Ayurvedic Specialist..! I learned it from my Grandmother and mother. Sometimes I prepare it Myself and sometimes if I am too Lazy, I get it from my mother whenever I go home. 🙂

  4. Hi..
    Thanks for the reply. I was blessed with thick dark hair since birth. After my second pragnency I lost most of my hair density and also experienced dry hair with split ends due to mal nutrition,neglegence.

    I am now trying to eat healthy along with some supplements. Stopped using shampoos and switched to home made hibiscus leaves shampoo to repair split ends and moisturize hair. It helps, however my density of the hair is the same.

    Please pass me some Ayurvedic hair mask and hair oil recipes (preferably given by a specialist or your mom/ grandma who have used remedies and seen results) to increase my hair density and to restore my hair to its original state.

    1. You can store this upto 6-8 months. Store the oil in a Grass jar with a tight lid, keep the oil away from any moisture and direct sunlight.

    1. Yes, You can still make this oil using infusion method- only using sunlight. But use dried aloe vera leaves/powder rather than fresh ones. As the fresh aloe vera leave juice contains lot of water percentage, and if this is used for infusing oil, the oil cannot be stored for long.

    1. Yes, it does. We cant anyway retain all of its properties but most. For this, We need to take care the temperature (should be between 100° and 140° F ) of the oil while we are infusing Aloe Vera or infact any herb in any oil. This will help the herbs to release its medicinal properties into the oil and not into the air.
      Remember.. We should not ‘boil’ but infuse. In boiling we temperature of the oil will be very high and the process completes within hour or so but infusion is a very slow process i.e heating the herbs and oil in a very low and controlled temperature. So it may take anywhere from 2hrs to even 8hrs time to complete this infusion process depending upon your quantities.
