The wheels in my head have been turning again ladies.Smile
 
I have done alittle research about amino acids needed for hairgrowth and have found these two sources. According to the research I did there are "Five amino acids are of particular relevance to hair growth"(ezinearticles) and I have found by comparing and contrasting that aloe vera has 4 of those amino acids needed for hairgrowth.

http://ezinearticles.com/?Top-Nutritional-Tips-To-Support-Healthy-Hair-Growth&id=4086

"Protein is composed of the amino acids essential for the building of new cells, including hair. Five amino acids are of particular relevance to hair growth - cystine, cysteine, methionine, arginine and lysine."
And...
http://www.herballegacy.com/Baldwin_Chemical.html

"The amino acids in Aloe vera are the building blocks of protein and influence our brain function. Humans require 22 amino acids and the body will make all of them except for eight essential amino acids which our body gets from the food/drinks that we take in. Every one of the essential amino acids are available in Aloe vera and they include isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, valine,and tryptophan. Some of the other non-essential amino acids found in Aloe vera include alanine, arginine, asparagine, cysteine, glutamic acid, glycine, histidine, proline, serine, tyrosine, glutamine, and aspartic acid.34"

Any questions, comments or corrections are welcome.

i actually started an experiment 2 weeks ago with fresh aloe vera juice for hair growthSmile. i massage it into my scalp every night, and will do so till the end of the year.

i'm documenting it (all in accordance to the rules lol! don't worry Plastic!) in my "hide you hair challenge" album

Hmm... definitely good to know. I don't use Aloe Vera but it sounds like it's better to ingest it then?

I have not worked up the nerve to drink it, but my moisterizer is made primarilly from aloe vera juice.  These articles were very helpful as to why my hair likes it.  Thanks, Guyanesesista

i've been using an aloe vera gel and shea butter mix for retwisting my baby locs, moisturizing my hair, and softening up my elbows (lol) and it's been working great!

Thanks for the replies ladies. I have a protein deficiency so I'm looking for a natural way of getting what I need for my hair and body and I think I may be onto something with this. I used to drink it and use it on my skin a few years back and skin was fab. I wasn't into tracking hairgrowth then but my hair looked very healthy. With that being said I've started drinking it again this morning and using on my skin. Do I smell a challenge?
