DIY – Aloe Vera & Honey Mask For Soft & Shiny Hair


Hola Chicas..we love Monsoons isn’t it? Cool and pleasant days without those dry harsh Sun rays! As much as we dislike hot dry day we all totally dislike dry and tangled hairs. Since last many days I was thinking of preparing a hair mask made of Aloe Vera for soft and silky hairs, but the problem is I don’t have much Aloe Vera plantation in my garden, so when I visited my Younger Sister’s place and I got a view of so many Aloe Vera plants outside her house I got 9-10 leaves of it to get required quantity of gel to prepare Hair Mask for me and my dear Sis 🙂
