Uses for Aloe Vera Gel

Post by JazmineB on 8th September 2010, 11:38 am

does anyone else use aloe vera gel for multiple things?

I originally bought some for my hair, but i use it as a face moisturizer mixed with jojoba oil & i basically have NO bumps on my face now. I also use it on my underarms and legs after shaving, and i have NO razor bumps and irritation now. i also use it in my shea butter whip, and on scars to make them disappear faster.

I don't know what it is about aloe vera that makes it so amazing but I'm glad I finally bought some.

My mom is gonna start drinking it now too since she has been having stomach problems.

Aloe vera juice helps the stomach acids to work together, which makes the whole digestive process takes place. If you suffer from constipation, drink aloe vera juice can help restore this balance. It also helps build and maintain healthy tissue required for the maintenance of small and large intestines, colon and stomach.

Does aloe vera gel revert your hair when you straighten it? I looked up the ingredients and it doesn’t have any water in it. Does anyone know of a gel or something like it that won’t revert your hair?

I love aloe vera gel/juice! Its great for shaving and my hair Smile I gargled with the juice for a sore throat and it definitely soothed it better than the basic salt/water mix.

But I've never used it as a moisturizer though..i'm going to try that tonight.

But does anyone know where to buy the plant? I need it for this scar I have.

hopefulcurls- I use this kind called "Skin Gel" and its by Aloe Life. I get it from this health food store by my house for about $9, you can buy it online here Its unscented and 99% Certified Organic Whole Leaf Aloe Vera with Vitamins A, C, E and Herbs.

I recently made a hair spritz with the aloe vera gel, water, jojoba oil and Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, that has vegetable glycerin in it. Its REALLY moisturizing and it enhances my coils and (because of the gel) gives a slight hold. After I spray it on my twists I add some more jojoba oil and then I don't have to re-moisturize for about a week.

NaturalSinceBirth, I didn't know you could use it for sore throats too. . cool!

Sounds great! I'll try it. I bought Aloe vera gel for my kimmaytube leave-in and once I mixed it up. I forgot that I had the bottle in the fridge. I have to pull it out and try it as a moistturizer.

Jazmine B - do you keep your aloe moisturizer in the fridge after you mix with jojoba oil?

aloe vera gel is one of my favorite gels. i prefer it over eco styler. i usually use it to slick down my edges and i add it to the end of my twist when they decided to lose their curl Sad

I also used it over the summer when my nose and arms got sunburned.

NaturalSinceBirth- you're welcome! I'm glad it works for you too!

BeautifullyMehh, I have Jojoba oil in a little spray bottle and my aloe vera gel in a separate bottle and I just put a little of each in my hand, rub them together and put it on my face. You only need a very small amount, like less than a tsp. I buy it at a store by my house called Henry's Farmer's Market but they only have locations in southern cali. you can buy it online here:

curlya- i dont mix them in a bottle, i just mix them together in my hand right before i put it on my face/underarms/legs/shoulders.

I use it with my shea butter to make shealoe. It has shea butter, aloe vera gel and coconut oil. I sometimes twist my hair with it but I use it everyday as a face moisturizer. I have acne prone skin. I switched my routine. Now, I wash once a day with black soap and apply my shealoe morning & night.

My acne has cleared up and spots are fading.................. Very Happy

I'm so glad naturalnolagirl suggested that I search for aloe vera gel in the forum! Thanks for all the information, ladies. I also have a bit of acne at a certain time of the month or if I'm stressing so I'm going to try mixing my avg with vitamin E oil to moisturize my face. I hope I have as much success as some of you!

The application of Aloe vera gel, hair growth is increasing, because it is a unique enzyme, which works well on the scalp. It also helps to reduce dandruff and scalp clean, and its excellent moisturizing effect. It is also suitable for the type of dry hair, because it softens the hair roots.
