    Aloevera surely does something to your hair init! I haven’t come across any natural ingredient this way, which clears the scalp giving a very shiny and smooth texture to the hair. Use aloe vera for cleansing the scalp once a week, it clears any product build up of the shampoo and conditioner making the scalp clear.
