HOW TO MAKE ALOE VERA JUICE



Take a large aloe vera leaf. Wash it well. Remove the sharp edges. Cut it in small portions and then use a knife or spoon to scoop out the clear gel.


Use a blender to blend the clear gel, then use a cheesecloth or fine sieve to strain the juice to avoid having aloe gel pieces in your hair.


Once you’re done, pour the juice in a spray bottle or an applicator bottle and generously moisturise your hair. If you have any leftover juice, freeze it for next time. 


I leave it in my hair as a leave-in conditioner, except it’s a wash day.

HOW TO MAKE CARROT OIL


Wash and peel your carrot. Grate the carrot into fine pieces and air dry for a few days till it’s scorched. Once the carrot is dry, I  put it in a jar and top it with olive or avocado oil or any oil of your choice.


I let it sit by my window sill for two weeks before I strain and bottle. Use this for your skin and hair needs as it is very beneficial to the skin and hair.


I tried using freshly grated carrots before to make my oil, but it had a smell because I don’t use preservatives, so now I prefer to let my carrots air dry, away from direct sunlight or heat to preserve the nutrients. 


A word of caution


Aloe vera is not meant for everyone. Some people may be allergic to it, and it may cause itchiness. Therefore it is always better to do a patch test by rubbing a small quantity of aloe vera on your arm and waiting for a couple of hours to see how you react before proceeding to use it on your entire head or body.
