Hey loves! It’s #ProductMonday at Afroliciouske and today we wanna talk about aloe juice Vs aloe gel. They’re both obtained from the aloe plant, also known as the lilly of the desert. The central portion of aloe vera leaves contains the clear gel while the juice is derived from the outer parts of the leaf.
Both the gel and the juice can be used on their own or you can add to your favorite shampoo, conditioner, diy products, etc. The list seems endless.
Aloe gel is 90-95% water and unless thickeners are added to it has a watery consistency, only a little heavier than the juice.
The juice and the gel have a shelf life of 6months. They’re best stored in the fridge or a cool dry place away from direct light.
Aloe vera products have both emollient and moisturizing properties, which means they seal the hair cuticle while also attracting and sealing in moisture.
Other great benefits include;
-Adding strength and luster to hair.
-Easily penetrate hair and scalp.
-Help maintain PH balance of hair.
-Relieve scalp itching and inflammation.
-Have anti fungal properties that aid in controlling dandruff
Aloe products in their raw form have an unpleasant smell, but it can easily be masked by adding essential oils if the smell bothers you too much.
We keep this products in our daily spritzes as a leave in and mix them with black castor for styling. How do you use your aloe products?
Have a lovely week!
