Same for me - if I use an aloe product nowadays (other than on my dry pineapple), it's usually AO Mandarin Magic, which is primarily AVG. So is SS Curl Enhancing Jelly, but my hair doesn't like something about it as well.
My scalp was happier when I was using AVG or AOMM regularly, so I may need to start back up because of that.
