    Girish,

    As the article states above, there’s no real evidence to suggest Aloe Vera is effective in treating male pattern baldness. In my opinion, you may want to consider treatments proven successful such as Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil).

    All the Best,

    I;m losing my hair, following a procedure of eigth weeks of chemo and radiation. Almost bald and still losing. Any chance aloe would help in this situation?

    Richard,

    Chemo and radiation therapy causes hair loss for reasons other than genetic ones. In many cases, upon stopping chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments, hair loss reverses itself and hair is restored to normal. Though Aloe vera brings certain soothing and cooling properties to the skin, I’ve seen nothing to suggest it will bring back hair regardless of the cause. In my opinion, talk to your doctor who adminstered the treatments and ask what your chances are of restoring your hair to normal.

    All the Best,

    Aloe Vera is a cheap product, therefore it is a great candidate to use (even if it does or does not) produce the expected results.

    If it does not help retard hairloss, move on to the next high priced drug or artificle application.

    My house is never without the Made from Earth Aloe Vera Skin Treatment and I’ve tried many kinds. Most of what has been available has been in gel form – which is full of chemicals! To make it gel-like, carcinogenic preservatives are used, as well as artificial colors, scents, etc. All I want is 100% aloe vera.

    Since finding the Made from Earth Aloe Vera (including the Aloe & Jojoba for the body), I keep one bottle on the frig door at all times for a more immediate cooling, soothing effect. One bottle is in the bathroom medicine cabinet and one in the bedroom. Its not a gel – its a real aloe vera cream that is potent.

    I am trying aloe vera gel every night before i go to bed with a shower cap on.Part of my question is has anybody religously done that. So many people try things for 1 maybe 2 weeks and there done.

    I have been for along time trying aloe as a hair restore treatment. I haven’t found it to regrow hair, however I do think it has slowed down my hair loss.

    Judy,

    There does not seem to be any conclusive evidence linking hair restoration and aloe vera gel/juice. Because of this, I don’t think pouring the solution on your head will make any significant difference.

    After your other medical conditions are treated and controlled, you may want to discuss hair restoration options with your personal physician and determine whether or not proven medications or even surgical restoration is a possibility.

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks for the post! Have to try aloe vera. I found that Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo helped immensely with hair loss. The argan oil stimulates growth and makes the strands more resilient. One extra plus is increased shine 🙂

    I’ve been using Aloe Vera Gel directly from its plant leaves for 7 weeks. Before I get into my results let me just say that I am a 31 year old sufferer of male pattern baldness. In fact, I started noticing hair loss when I was 19 years old and it had gotten progressively worse over the years. Well, two months ago, I lost my job so I decided to start the next phase of my life by shaving my head, then applying Aloe Vera plant gel from my plants once every 3-4 days before bedtime. On the days that I don’t use aloe vera gel, I use organic coconut oil to moisturize my scalp. I didn’t see results right away as I grew my hair back. On week 3, I decided to get a buzz cut due to potential job interviews. That’s when I noticed new hair follicles in my bald spots, but the bald spots were still noticeable. Week 4, I saw a little more improvement. Week 5, I saw more improvement, and in weeks 6 & 7 my hair is thicker and I’m seeing more new folicles sprouting.

    To the previous posters, you can’t use aloe vera gel and organic coconut oil for two weeks and conclude that it doesn’t work. I saw on another website that it takes 2-3 months to see a significant difference when using aloe vera gel. I started seeing small results myself in 3 weeks but your results will vary. Rub aloe vera in the thinning/balding areas of your hair for at least 3 months before deciding whether or not it works.

    I think for me that it also helped that I stopped brushing my hair, and its too short to comb. I just rub the coconut oil/ in my head and forgo combing and brushing.

    I also wash my hair with Dr. Bronner’s peppermint soap once evey two weeks. During my shampooing, I use a scalp massager to spread out the soap before rinsing.

    With that being said, give aloe vera a try for 3 months and draw your own conclusion.

    I wonder why everyone asking can I use aloe Vera for my hair loose ?? This guy in his post clearly said there is no proven clinical evidence for aloe Vera as hair loose treatment … still ya ppl go on asking can we use it use it ???

    Hi, the words “no proven clinical evidence” (as paraphrased from the author) has a different meaning to “proven not to work” or “has been shown to have no significant advantage compared to a control group”.

    If there have simply been no studies done on the subject, then this is no reason to dismiss the possibility.

    I agree with Dan. I gave up on my hair loss a long time ago. I’ve been losing it since I was about 15 or 16. I’m now 20. When my fiancee’s mother suggested I try aloe leaf gel I was obviously skeptical but it’s cheap at the grocery store and I figured I had nothing to lose but more hair. Anyways, I’ve been doing it for only about 2 weeks now (every couple of days) and multiple people I didn’t even tell I was doing this have remarked how my hair looks thicker and fuller. I have noticed results in this short time period and am excited about continuing. Just my experience. Thanks.

    i have hair loss problem since 2 years ago. Last month i saw this post and i thought why not gave it a try. i tried applying aloe vera straight from the plant 3 times a week and left it on for 20-30mins each time. its been a month now. Although ,there is no SIGNIFICANT improvements but i do notice new hair follicles!
    i will continue to try it out and let you guys know the result soon!

    Anw, i tried applying on my face at the same time too! and one thing for sure.. the result is GOOD!!

    thanks and good luck ppl=)

    what is the best gel hair loss treatment?

    James,

    The “best” hair loss treatment really depends on your current level of hair loss, needs and goals. However, the most effective and only FDA approved non-surgical hair loss treatments are Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil). Both treatments, especially when used in conjunction with one another have a high success rate of slowing down, stopping and even reversing the effects of miniaturization due to genetic hair loss. That said, only hair transplant surgery is proven to grow hair in completely bald areas.

    Best wishes,

    I just have a curious question…since when and what type of organic and natural products does the FDA ever approved???

    Fa,

    Normally, the FDA does not review or evaluate natural/organic products. These generally fall under a different umbrella and aren’t subjected to the same FDA regulation. This applies to “natural and organic” hair loss products as well.

    For a short time ago I’ve been using aloe to fight my thinning & hair loss issues. I’m not expecting to see the results yet cause everything does take time. So I should give it around 3 – 4 months, which does make sense. But there is one positive result that I’m noticing, the aloe did reduced the flaky and itching issue I’ve been dealing with on my scalp for years.
