Detangle and Define Your Natural Hair with these 2 DIY Aloe Vera Recipes.

If you haven’t tried using natural ingredients on your hair, you may be missing out. Aloe Vera has been used for centuries as a health and beauty aide and has proven, to curls and fragile hair, to be a real BFF.
It is excellent for maintaining hair hydration levels and defining natural hair.

That’s why I decided to bring you two recipes so that you can use aloe vera to define your curls or to hydrate and untangle your hair.

Here are two easy recipes that you can make at home in either small or larger batches, depending on your hair’s needs (and length). If you make extra you can even store it in your fridge for later.

 

1. Moisturizing Detangler Spray

 

Ingredients: 

-1/2 cup distilled water

-1/2 cup aloe vera juice or gel
