Aloe vera can stimulate hair growth

April 30, 2012 -- Urban Salon Finder

Aloe vera, a succulent plant, has been known to hydrate and nourish the scalp and stimulate hair growth.  Though scientific evidence is limited, studies have proven that aloe vera has been used worldwide for medicinal purposes for thousands of years.  Apply a small amount of gel (about 1 teaspoonful) to the affected area, such as a thinning hairline or bald spot, as needed.  Preferably, you should use the aloe vera gel fresh from the plant, but you can also purchase the gel from a health or beauty store.
