Aloe Vera: How it doubled my hair growth and gave me better sex
Most people use aloe vera as a remedy for skin conditions, including acne, razor bumps, sunburn, and scars, but there is a host of other benefits too.
Aloe Vera is also good for hair.
As I already told you in the past, I was one of the unfortunate ones to start losing hair in my 20’s.
One thing I did learn is that prevention is easier than the cure.
So if thinning hair is something you’re concerned about, it’s better to act NOW.
How to use aloe vera for hair growth
I can tell you from my own personal experience that a simple and very powerful aloe vera hair mask can works wonders!
All you need is 1 tbsp of organic aloe vera gel, 1 tbsp of garlic juice, and 1 egg yolk.
Mix all the ingredients together and apply it to your scalp.
Put a towel in a bowl of hot water; Squeeze off the excess; wrap the wet warm towel around your hair; Cover a shower cap over it and leave it on for 30mins.
After 30 minutes, have a shower and wash it all off. This hair mask is rich in protein and will make your hair amazingly strong.
You can also use aloe vera juice for hair. Neither is better really, they are both great and give exactly the same benefits.
The juice is also used as a dietary cleanse/detox for many people in order to help them lose weight.
Aloe vera juice weight loss
The real culprit in weight gain is usually diet & inactivity.
Aloe vera juice alone won’t help you lose weight. But if you’re looking to detoxify and cleanse the body to help you lose a few pounds then this drink will certainly help.
Mix 32oz of aloe vera juice with:
- 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of rosemary
- A pinch of ground cumin
- Few drops of lemon juice
Maintain a well-balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Consuming whole foods in the form of carbs such as fruit and vegetables, proteins from fish and lean meat and fats from olive oil and nuts.
Never exceed the recommended dosage and consult your doctor first if you’re thinking of taking aloe vera capsules or pills.
Aloe vera side effects
Not only do you have to be careful about how much you drink, you also need to watch what type you drink.
Why? Because of the sugar content!
Many brands use added sugar or sweeteners to help balance the bitterness of the aloe.
If you haven’t heard by now, added sugars are strongly linked to diabetes, obesity and weight gain.
Luckily, there’s a really easy way to avoid all these problematic food additives: just buy pure aloe vera juice.
Remember to read labels and shop as wholesome and organic as possible.
The more whole, natural stuff you have, the better off you will be.
Warning: Consuming large amounts of aloe vera juice can cause painful abdominal cramping, and diarrhea. Using the juice longer than a week can lead to laxative dependency and constipation after you stop drinking it.
Aloe vera for vagina
Apart from providing a host of health and skincare benefits, aloe vera can also be used in the bedroom!
During sexual arousal, a woman’s vagina typically gets wet on its own.
But sometimes it can just dry up resulting in pain or discomfort when having sex.
Many lubricants sold at your local grocery or drugstore are filled with nasty ingredients like parabens which are known toxins.
Dr. Maggie Ney, a co-director of the Women’s Clinic at the Akasha Center in Santa Monica, believes when it comes to lubricant, we should be using edible goods instead of “super toxic” shop-bought versions.
In a Q&A interview which was published on goop.com, Dr. Ney said:
“When it comes to lube, if it is safe to eat, it is generally safe to apply. If a lubricant is needed, I recommend organic coconut oil, olive oil, aloe vera gel, or almond oil—they are free from preservatives and are safe alternatives to conventional lubricants.”
