With Henna: You can add our aloe vera powder to your henna and Ayurvedic hair recipes (even indigo) for added moisture and provide slip to make paste easier to apply. Add 1-2 tsp Organic Aloe Vera Powder to 100g of your powder and mix with your choice of liquid.
Added to Indigo: To provide slip to Indigo paste and to lessen the ‘drying effect’ from the Indigo. Add only 1-2 tsp of Organic Aloe Vera Powder to 100g of Indigo and premix with water before adding to dye released Indigo.
We recommend you add 5% of your whole herbal recipe for best results in general.
Hair Masques: Add 1-2 tsp of Organic Aloe Vera Powder to any moisturising, herbal, Ayurvedic or protein treatment to amp up the conditioning and moisturising (when mixing 100 grams).
Hair Wash: Blend Organic Aloe Vera Powder with water, herbal tea or Soapnut/Shikakai tea until the consistency resembles commercial shampoo. Massage the gel gently into the hair and scalp, leave on the hair for up to 5 minutes, then wash out. There’s no need to follow with a diluted acidic rinse as the pH of aloe is slightly on the acidic side, closer to the pH of the hair and scalps acid mantle.
Soothing Scalp Treatment: Create a paste from 3-4 TBS Organic Aloe Vera Powder and chamomile tea, and apply to the scalp for an extra soothing scalp pack for irritated and/or itchy scalps.
To Boost Growth: Combine 2 TBS each of Bhringraj Powder and Organic Aloe Vera Powder and 1 tsp Shikakai Powder with water and 1/4 tsp Organic Camellia Oil. Apply to scalp for at least an hour and wash out. Repeat once a week.
As a Post Wash Conditioner: Gradually add water to 1 tsp Organic Aloe Vera Powder and stir until there are no lumps. Stir in another 2 cups of water and shake until all lumps are gone. Pour the liquid over washed hair and leave on the hair for up to 10 minutes. Rinse well.
In Mister Bottles: Blend Organic Aloe Vera Powder with water to form a lump-free paste. Continue to add water until the paste is runny, the add this to 2 cups of water and shake. Make sure there are no lumps, or the spray bottle will clog. Spray the hair when it needs a moisture boost. If the hair feels crunchy, spray the hair with plain water afterwards and use a more dilute solution next time.
