Hair oils, masks, and mists are common hair care products that target damaged tresses apart from the usual shampoos and conditioners. But actress Sofia Andres has a pretty cool secret to keeping her locks healthy—and it’s a product that you can use all over your body, too!
Sofia reveals that she uses Luxe Organix’s aloe vera gel for her tresses. “My hair is really dry. [With] all the bleaching and coloring I do every month, I need something to keep it healthy,” she shares. Luckily, aloe vera has natural moisturizing and healing properties; this soothing gel is commonly used as a lightweight moisturizer for the face or as an instant remedy for burns or mild topical skin irritations. Sofia says it does quite the same for her hair and keeps it healthy enough to withstand heat styling and frequent dye jobs. “My hair just looks healthier and thicker! And it grows faster, too!” She adds.

Another tip: You can even use aloe gel to treat a dry and itchy scalp if you’re dealing with dandruff. It’s best to apply when your hair is damp from the shower, so the product can seep into your hair more effectively. It dries grease-free and won’t leave your hair sticky or clumpy like some hair oils. And since one tub goes a long way, you can use it as an over-all moisturizer, too—perfect for our hot and humid weather! Talk about a multi-tasking beauty find!
