Preparing the gel for hair and skin treatments (click here for enlarged pictures)
HOW TO CONDITION YOUR HAIR AND SCALP
The pictures show the process for the amount you need to make approximately 125 ml (1/2 cup) of blended ready to use gel. This quantity will do for two to three treatments of shoulder length normal hair.
1. Follow steps for extracting gel.
2. Put the gel through a sieve if it is lumpy. (This is not necessary if thoroughly blended)
3. Let the gel settle for about 20 minutes.
4. Massage the gel thoroughly into your scalp making sure in the process you also completely saturate your hair from root to tip. Be generous with the gel.
5. You then leave this for 15 to 30 minutes depending on the reason for your personal treatment as follows:
A. For normal healthy hair use leave in your hair for 15 minutes then shampoo with gel in your hair and rinse thoroughly.
B. For dry, damaged hair let the Aloe Vera gel do its job of cleansing the scalp and hair follicles and enriching the hair strands for about 20 minutes. Repeat weekly for 3 to 4 weeks then maintain with weekly or fortnightly applications but for only 15 minutes at a time.
C. For dry scalp, itchy scalp and dandruff do as above (A.) but for 30 minutes. Repeat weekly for 3 weeks and then weekly but keep gel in your hair for 15 minutes before shampooing. After 3 to 4 more weeks your dandruff should have ceased and dry scalp should be clean and in great condition. Maintain weekly or fortnightly as you feel it is needed for your scalp and hair but keep gel in your hair for 15 minutes.
D. For hair loss or thinning do the same as above in (C.). It could be likely that continued use fortnightly may be required. This treatment has proved successful for well over half of the participants in trials. (The Silent Healer by Bill Coats with Robert Ahola. Pub: Fideli Publishing Inc.)
NOTE: If hair loss is hereditary Aloe is unlikely to prevent loss.
In all cases it is essential to massage the gel into your scalp thoroughly to ensure good coverage and penetration of the root follicles and that the hair strands are saturated from root to tip.
Then shampoo and thoroughly rinse your hair and scalp making sure you have removed any aloe particles that may have seeped through the sieve.
