Let’s look into the benefits of shea butter for hair and hair growth:
Shea butter is a perfect moisturizer and can help soothe dry, itchy, and irritated scalp skin and reduce dandruff and flaking. The moisturizing properties of shea butter can also help keep the hair moisturized and reduce dry hair and reduce hair damage. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe the skin and reduce damage and skin infections that can otherwise cause damage to the hair follicles inhibiting proper hair growth.
Shea butter acts as a natural protective layer over the hair strands as it has emollient (hydrating) properties providing it protection and hair repair from damage or dry hair, which can otherwise be a cause for further hair damage or hair breakage. This property of shea butter also protects the hair from heat damage from hair styling tools like flat irons, curling irons and blow dryers, and over-exposure to ultra-violet (UV) rays.
Shea butter gets easily absorbed into the hair strands and therefore doesn’t make the hair look greasy and can penetrate right into the hair shaft to provide protection to the hair and promote hair growth right from within.
Shea butter can also help improve hair quality by improving hair texture and hair shine and also promoting hair growth and hair strength.
Here are the benefits of aloe vera for hair and hair growth:
Aloe vera can calm and ease itchiness on the scalp, especially for people with dandruff. It can reduce the itchiness and flaking of the skin under your hair, as it has anti-inflammatory properties and can also reduce scalp inflammation caused by dandruff. It can help promote hair growth as it helps cleanse and nourish the scalp.
Aloe vera can help reduce hair breakage and stimulate the hair follicles to promote hair growth by contributing to cell turnover which is a natural process that involves the constant shedding of dead skin cells and the replacement of it with younger skin cells, over a period of time. It can also help increase hair shine and give your hair a natural glow.
Aloe vera can help control greasy hair, as aloe vera has enzymes and properties that can break down fats and strip away the extra oil (sebum) from the hair. It can also protect the hair from ultra-violet (UV) damage and retain the natural hair color.
