ive wondered about this as well, cause when i started using aloe vera my hair LOVED it but after awhile, it made my hair all icky, like what protein does. but i find it ok when ive mixxed it with oil or somthing like that then use it my hair seems to like that

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
