The first MAIN ingredient (aside from water) in The Zydot Internal Hair Purifying Treatment is Aloe Vera, more specifically the aqueous extract of the Aloe Vera Plant. What that means is that they take the leaves of the plant, and wash them thoroughly with clean water, chop the leaves up into little tiny pieces, and weigh out specific measurements to then be placed in a blender and soaked with even more water. Then the now blended mixture is filtered to remove any pieces of the leaves – creating a solution of Aloe Vera in water at a 25,000 Parts Per Million concentration. So, in essence, it is just Aloe Vera that has been hydrated so much it looks and feels like water.
Aloe Vera has long been held in high regards amongst scientists. Though the research on this plant is extremely varied, and the conclusions that can be drawn from that research highly contradictory, what is not under question is just how useful this plant can be. The plant itself normally grows only in very dry climates and is often found and distributed throughout Africa, India and other such dry/desert countries. Most often Aloe Vera is used in herbal medicine. Some of the more common medicinal uses for the plant include its ability to relieve things like indigestion (it is an effective laxative) and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. It can also help alleviate problems like heartburn, arthritis, and rheumatism. It can ease congestion, hemorrhoids, urinary tract infections, and can also be used to help strengthen teeth and gums. Aloe Vera vapors (from boiling the leaves) are also known to help with asthma symptoms.
While medicinally it is a very useful plant, in Beauty supplies it is also in high demand for its abilities to reduce tissue damage from severe hot and cold weather, and even soothe burns while removing any bruises. Also Aloe Vera helps to reduce symptoms like rashes, or blisters and any skin irritations.
But for hair, Aloe Vera has some surprisingly handy uses. It can help to speed up hair growth, reduce dandruff, and even heal the scalp from inside while also balancing the pH level of the scalp. Aloe Vera also is used to help clean out the pores of the skin, including the skin on the scalp.
