The Amazing Benefits of Aloe Vera for Your Hair and Skin
You’ve probably used Aloe Vera to moisturize and calm your skin after a long day in the sun - ouch! Although it’s commonly known for treating sunburns, Aloe Vera has a long list of health and beauty benefits that you definitely need to know about.
Aloe Vera is basically the “superfood” of the beauty industry. If you read the labels of several skincare and haircare products, chances are you’ll see Aloe Vera listed as a main ingredient.
Why? Aloe Vera contains several natural nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that tackle all kinds of beauty challenges. From dry hair and dandruff to crow’s feet and breakouts - nature’s medicine handles it all and handles it quickly so you can go on living your fabulous life.
If you’re looking for a go-to beauty solution that can take care of anything life throws at you, you’ve come to the right place. Here are all the awesome things that Aloe Vera can do for your hair and skincare.
ALOE VERA FOR YOUR HAIR
Climate, water quality, pollution, work stress - there are an abundance of factors that affect your hair on a daily basis. What happens when you mix all these factors together? Dry, brittle locks - ugh! Luckily, Aloe Vera is nature’s hair mask - the solution to all your hair woes.
Hydrate Your Hair from Within
Aloe Vera is known to help condition your hair for long lasting shine and softness. According to Chelsea Scott, hair expert and founder of Truhair, Aloe Vera contains natural enzymes that “attract and lock in moisture” which is extremely important for those with damaged, brittle hair. This natural elixir also contains several antioxidants (vitamin A, C, and E) that work wonders to neutralize damaging free radicals from your hair due to the environment.

Reduce Breakage & Maintain Thickness
Aloe Vera also does the trick if you want to keep more hair on your head and less in your hairbrush. It’s serious conditioning properties work to strengthen your roots from within (strong roots don’t fall out as easily). When roots are well-hydrated, they are also more elastic - which means you will experience far less breakage! Bottom line? Aloe Vera = thicker, stronger hair.
We highly recommend Truly’s Rainbows in Mirrors Split End Treatment. This formula blends avocado and argan oil with Aloe Vera to repair and restore your hair, while deleting split ends and brittle strands.
Heal Your Scalp & Cure Dandruff
Aloe vera is super rich in antifungal and antiviral properties - making it the perfect solution for dandruff or dry, itchy scalp. The same vitamins and minerals that hydrate your hair also promote rapid skin healing (that’s why Aloe Vera is used on sunburns!) Recent studies show that regularly using Aloe Vera on your scalp significantly reduces itchiness and flakes - which boosts your scalp health and confidence!
If you want your soft, touchable mane back - cover your hair with Aloe Vera and relax for about 30 minutes. When you wash it out, you’ll be amazed at how these natural enzymes transformed your hair in a matter of minutes!

ALOE VERA FOR YOUR SKIN
Eye creams, serums, cleansers, face masks - I’m sure you’ve tried them all, right?
Next time you’re shopping around for new skincare, check to make sure it contains Aloe Vera - nature’s secret ingredient. Aloe Vera is the proven solution to several common skincare challenges.
Moisturize & Smooth Your Skin
Aloe Vera is made up of 95% water which makes it ultra-hydrating for your skin. It essentially acts as a super glue that locks the top layer of skin cells together - resulting in softer and stronger skin - according to a study conducted by the Natural Medicine Journal. The best part? It’s super light, non-greasy, and safe for all skin types (including sensitive and oily skin!) Plus, it’s a fantastic base for makeup!

Fight Acne & Prevent Breakouts
Aloe Vera has several anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that do the trick on stubborn acne and blemishes. Studies show that the salicylic acid in Aloe Vera helps unclog pores and prevent the bacteria buildup that causes breakouts in the first place. There are several acne fighting products out there that contain high levels of salicylic acid that can totally dry your skin out - but Aloe Vera’s hydrating properties ensure that you will keep your soft skin and get rid of pesky pimples.
Clear your acne with Truly’s CBD Jelly Anti-Blemish Facial Cleanser. It’s made with hemp, salicylic acid, and Aloe to remove blackhead-causing bacteria and keep breakouts at bay.
Repair Wrinkles & Signs of Aging
As you get older, your skin loses elasticity - resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. But have no fear, Aloe Vera can solve this problem for you too. A recent study conducted by Annals of Dermatology shows that Aloe Vera significantly improves elasticity of the skin, increases collagen production, and reduces visible signs of aging when used regularly. The same study found that women who used Aloe Vera daily saw results in less than a month!
Opt for Truly’s Vegan Collagen Serum to reap the anti-aging benefits of both Aloe Vera and vegan collagen.
