If the KCKT and oils have pHs of 7 (which doesn't help or harm the hair), and the aloe vera juice has a pH of 4.0-4.5 (which is what actually closes the hair's cuticles), then couldn't you just remove the KCKT and oils altogether and just use the aloe vera juice with a pH of 4.0-4.5?

I've been meaning to get some PH strips for this purpose.
