If you can’t find fresh aloe vera, you can always substitute it by a bought aloe vera gel.
For the mask you will need
– 1 bowl
– 2 aloe vera leaves
– juice from half a lemon
– a blender
– a sharp knife
If you’re using fresh aloe vera, take out carefully the aloe vera gel from the aloe vera leaves and put it in a blender along with the juice from half a lemon. Blend them for about a minute and then pour the mixture in a bowl. And that’s it! Your mask is done.
If you want to use it as a mask for your hair, apply it on your hair and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Then, just wash it as usual.
If you want to use it as a mask for your skin, apply it carefully on your face and neck, in order to have an even skin tone. Let the mask sit for 10-15 minutes and rinse it off.
Just a little warning. If you use lemon juice very often, it will lighten the color of your hair. You should know that you can substitute lemon juice with honey, which will also moisturize and condition your hair.
