Aloe Vera: Natural Solutions from Native Roots

Native American Hair Care

In Native American culture, long hair was valued in both male and female populations. In photographs of Native American populations, both men and women had long black hair that resisted graying even in old age. Part of this can be chalked up to aloe vera, which was an essential ingredient in Native Americans' diet. The versatile plant is known for relieving burns, but it can also be used to strengthen and protect hair. Apply some of the gel to your hair when you're going to be in the sun, or use it to soothe a sunburned scalp.
