Now that we know that aloe vera has all these great properties, what exactly does that mean for your hair? If you search around the internet, you might find stories from people who swear that it makes their hair thicker or grow faster.
According to Dr. Greenfield, there have been studies that demonstrated the beneficial effects of aloe vera on skin, and it’s possible that aloe vera could help hair growth by addressing inflammation. “There are many, many causes of slow to no hair growth, collectively referred to as alopecia,” Dr. Greenfield says. It’s possible that aloe vera can promote hair growth when the cause of the alopecia is an inflammatory condition.
