Your Hair & Scalp Need More Aloe Vera
Do you suffer from either a dry or oily scalp? If you answered yes to either, you're not alone. Most individuals deal with one of the two, and shockingly aloe vera gel can help control both! Aloe vera gel is made up of roughly 75 compounds and is 99% water, which explains why it is extremely hydrating for your scalp without leaving behind a greasy residue.

You Might Be Shocked By The History of Aloe Vera
There are over 500 species of aloes, and yet aloe vera is the most used! There must be a reason why and history may reveal what we can't see. The earliest writings about aloe vera gel date back to ancient Egypt about 6,000 years ago. Recently, researchers have pointed to the Arabian peninsula as the origin of aloe vera where significant trade routes were earlier in history, for example, the Silk Road. These trading routes can possibly be responsible for the mass popularity of aloe vera throughout the world.
From ancient Egypt to Mesopotamia, China, Rome, and Israel; aloe has always been used to heal, restore, replenish and heal. Aloe is even mentioned in the Christian Bible, however, it is not specifically speaking of aloe vera. Nevertheless, aloe vera should never be overlooked as just another plant. It has always been used as a superior natural medicine.
