2- Once the sides have been sliced off, cut the leaf into approximately 3 cm wide pieces. We do this to ensure that the aloe vera leaf releases all its benefits. Place the cut pieces in a bowl for now.

4- Place the beaker with the coconut oil in a hot water bath (bain-marie). A hot water bath is done by placing the beaker in a larger pot of hot steaming water. This will gradually heat the coconut oil without causing it to burn.

Benefits: DIY Aloe Vera Coconut Oil for Hair

DIY aloe vera coconut oil for hair offers a range of benefits for your locks, including:

  1. Moisturizes hair: Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids that can penetrate deep into the hair shaft and provide moisture. Aloe vera is also known for its hydrating properties, which can help prevent dryness and breakage.
  2. Strengthens hair: Aloe vera contains proteolytic enzymes that can repair damaged hair and promote hair growth. Meanwhile, the lauric acid in coconut oil can help strengthen hair and prevent breakage.
  3. Reduces dandruff: The antifungal and antibacterial properties of coconut oil can help reduce dandruff, while aloe vera’s soothing properties can help alleviate scalp irritation.
