Aloe vera gel is an excellent natural treatment for hair. 100% aloe vera gel conditions and softens natural hair in addition to aiding in creating defined hairstyles.
Obtained from the cactus shaped plant of the same name, aloe vera gel is one of the most prominent natural products in hair and skin care.
