Before starting please note that I have an oily skin and scalp. So the methods I am explaining here will work well for people having an oily skin and scalp.
For Hair :
1.Heat Protectant : Aloe vera gel acts as a natural heat protectant. Squeeze a small amount of aloe vera gel onto your palm, rub thoroughly and apply to your hair by dividing into portions. Now you can blow dry your hair or use straightening or curling tools on your hair.
2.Leave on conditioner : Aloe vera gel gives your hair a smooth texture and adds shine. After shampooing, while your hair is still damp, apply aloe vera gel by starting from the ends and whatever left on your hands,apply that to your scalp.
3.Overnight mask : You can create an overnight mask using this gel which will help in moisturizing your hair, stops hair fall and stimulates hair growth. For this you need :

Add both aloe vera gel and vitamin E capsules in a small bowl, mix it well. Apply this mixture thoroughly to your hair, scalp and massage for 4-5 mins. Leave it overnight and wash your hair with a mild shampoo the next day.
For Face :
1.As Moisturizer : You can simply apply this gel onto your face and massage for few mins. This will act as a moisturizer. This will help you in removing sunburn, tanning and even rashes after waxing. You can use this as a night cream and even as a Primer before applying makeup.
2.Toner : If you don't want to use this gel as a moisturizer, you can prepare toner by using it. For this you will need :
