Definition of terms Okra – tall tropical Asian annual plant (Abelmoschus esculentus) widely cultivated in warm regions for its edible, mucilaginous green pods.
The edible pods of this plant, used insoups and as a vegetable. Also called regionally gumbo. In this study, okra will be utilized as a hair strengthening ingredient Aloe Vera – The mucilaginous juice or gel obtained from the leaves of this plant, widelyused in cosmetic and pharmaceutical preparations for its soothing and healing properties. In this study, okra will be utilized as a hair strengthening ingredient 2 Shampoo – Any of various liquid or cream preparations of soap or detergent used towash the hair and scalp. In this study, shampoo will be producing from okra and aloe vera. Review of Related Literature This chapter represented the review of related literature and studies about okra andgugo that can be made as an homemade shampoo and can strengthen the tensile of the hair. Okra Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) Moench, known in many English-speaking countries aslady’s fingers or gumbo) is a flowering plant in the mallow family. It is valued for its ediblegreen seed pods. Originating in Africa, the plant is cultivated in tropical, subtropical and warmtemperate regions around the world. Okra is often known as “Lady’s Fingers” outside of the United States.
Invarious Bantu languages, okra is called “kingombo” or a variant thereof, and this is the origin of its name in Portuguese (“quiabo”), Spanish, Dutch and French, and also of the name “gumbo”,used in parts of the United States and English-speaking Caribbean for either the vegetable, or astew based on it. In the United Kingdom it is often called as “bhindi”, from its Hindi name”bhindi” or “bhendi”. It is a tall-growing, warm-season, annual vegetable from the same familyas hollyhock, rose of Sharon and hibiscus. The immature pods are used for soups, canning andstews or as a fried or boiled vegetable.
The hibiscuses like flowers and upright plant (3 to 6 feet or more in height) have ornamental value for backyard gardens. From Arabia, the plant spread around the shores of the Mediterranean Sea andeastward. The plant was introduced to the Americas by ships plying the Atlantic slave trade by1658, when its presence was recorded in Brazil. It was further documented in Suriname in1686. Okra may have been introduced to southeastern North America in the early 18th century. Aloe vera Aloe vera, also known as the true or medicinal aloe, is a species of succulent plant in thegenus Aloe that is believed to have originated in the Sudan.
Aloe vera grows in arid climatesand is widely distributed in Africa, India, and other arid areas. The species is frequently cited asbeing used in herbal medicine. Many scientific studies of the use of aloe vera have beenundertaken, some of them conflicting. Despite these limitations, there is some preliminaryevidence that Aloe vera extracts may be useful in the treatment of wound and burn healing,minor skin infections, Sebaceous cyst, diabetes, and elevated blood lipids in humans. These positive effects are thought to be due to the presence of compounds such as polysaccharides,mannans, anthraquinones, and lectins.
Shampoo Shampoo is a hair care product used for the removal of oils, dirt, skin particles,dandruff, environmental pollutants and other contaminant particles that gradually build up inhair. The goal is to remove the unwanted build-up without stripping out so much sebum as tomake hair unmanageable. 4 Even though most modern shampoos include a conditioning component, shampooing isfrequently followed by the use of conditioners which ease combing and styling. 5 Methodology This chapter contained data gathering instruments, treatment/general procedure, and determination of hair strength.
Purpose & Research Design The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness if okra and aloe vera canbe made as a homemade shampoo. This study also determines which treatment way moreeffective in strengthening hair. Data Gathering Instruments Materials and Equipment In this experiment we used aloe vera stem, okra fruits, coconut oil, and tap water as themain ingredients and the other materials are stove, clean pots for boiling of ingredients,strainer, mask, funnel, clean bottles where to put the concoction, bowls for soaking, hair comb,towel, and strands of hair.

First, enough hair strands were gathered for three treatments. Treatment of aloe veraand okra, treatment aloe vera, treatment okra. Five grams of aloe vera boiled in 70 ml water for30 minutes and strained to extract the juice. The decoction was placed in a clean bottle. Toprepare the okra decoction, 2 pieces okra fruits were boiled in 200 ml tap water for tenminutes. The cooked okra were masked for extraction and decoction was strained for thepreparation of solution. The homemade shampoo was prepared from 50 ml aloe vera decoctionand 50 ml okra decoction.
The homemade shampoo was then prepared into three setups. SetupA is the treatment of aloe vera and okra, Setup B is the treatment of aloe vera only, and SetupC is the treatment of okra only. All setups will be put in the table. 6 Soaking Process of the Hair Strands The hair strands that have been divided enough for the three setups. The hair strandswere soaked in the respective bowls and left about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes the hairstrands were rinsed thoroughly with tap water. Determination of Hair Strength
To determine the strength of the hair strand, pulling it until it breaks. The breaking of hair strand will be recorded in a table and will be scaled. 7 Results and Analysis This chapter presented the data, analysis and interpretation of findings. It is in this part whereby the data have been sorted out, tabulated, subjected to statistical analysis and then the findings were interpreted. Table 1 showed the difference in the hair strengthens and exposed treatments. Result showed that treatment A was extremely tough, treatment B was moderately tough and treatment C was tough.
