Aloe, from its botanical name aloe vera, is a mine of treasures for our hair and skin: thanks to vitamin A which produces sebum, it strengthens damaged and fragile hair which becomes better nourished, less brittle and protected against drying out. The antibacterial effect of the vitamin C it contains will allow it to effectively fight inflammation of the skin and drive out dandruff. As for vitamin B12, it acts as a perfect anti-hair loss agent that strengthens hair and boosts its growth.
