13. The Philippines' Secret to Glowing Hair

I have always thought women from the Philippines have the most beautiful hair. It is long, glowing, and just so pretty. Well, one reason why may be the beauty technique so many of them use. Women from the Philippines are known to rub aloe gel all over their hair to give it a glossy finish and protect it. Aloe contains extremely rich moisturizing properties that can protect the hair, enhance the shine, and strengthen it as well. Use the actual gel from the plant if you can, but if not, you can also buy the gel at many health food stores. Soak hair in it about 10 minutes before shampooing and rinsing.
