For many of women with natural or thicker hair, humidity is a mortal enemy. Often times, we wind up piling heavy products onto our hair to keep the frizz away. These products can cause tresses to feel weighty, flat or even extremely stiff. There is hope, however, and it goes by the name: Aloe Vera.
With a pH range of around 4.5, the acidity of Aloe Vera is what works to our advantage. It aids in closing the hair cuticle. This causes your hair to be smoother, minimizes frizz, and gives your strands more definition and shine. Some find that Aloe Vera is a humectant, or something that draws in any humidity from the air that surrounds it. However, by sealing my hair with Aloe Vera after I style it, I have noticed less frizz and swelling. Pure Aloe Vera is light enough to keep my hair moisturized without feeling greasy or weighed down. It also gives great control without making it stiff or crunchy, which is a huge plus!
Promote moisture and eliminate frizz!
Sealing your hair is a quick process that yields excellent results. Serving as a barrier of sorts, the sealing product helps keep any products you have applied stay in the hair shaft. This lengthens the number of days your hair retains its moisture and cuts down on having to keep reapplying product. Beginning with clean hair, apply your preferred leave-in conditioner or styling product. Next, evenly distribute some Aloe Vera throughout your hair. After allowing to air-dry, hair is left bouncy and defined without the ruining hold of humidity.
