Peeling aloe vera

How to prepare the aloe vera

Start by scraping out the aloe vera gel from the plant. To do this, peel the sides to remove the hard exterior. 

Scooping out aloe vera gel

Then scoop out the gel with a spoon. 

Mashing aloe vera gel

Transfer the gel to a bowl and mash with a fork to break apart the jelly-like clumps until you have a nice and even consistency.

Apply it to your hair and scalp. Leave it on for an hour or overnight and then wash it off. 

Squeezing lemon juice

Aloe juice mask

1. Combine ingredients

Combine three tablespoons of aloe vera with one tablespoon of lemon juice. I recommend taking a lemon and juicing it for optimum results. Then add 1-2 drops of tea tree oil. 

Lemon juice deep cleanses the scalp and tea tree oil is a dandruff remedy. Mix the ingredients together.

Apply the mask to your scalp. You can apply it with your hands or dab it on with some cotton wool. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes before you rinse it off.
