Aloe vera also makes a fantastic conditioner for all hair types. It keeps normal hair healthy and repairs dry, damaged hair. It works so well for this purpose because it has the ability to penetrate the hair shaft. The primary protein in the hair, Keratin, is made of amino acids, carbon, oxygen and trace amounts of other elements. Aloe’s chemical make-up is similar and it rejuvenates the hair by treating it with its own nutrients. This improves elasticity and prevents breaking.
