Here is what too much aloe does to my hair-
It makes is look heavy, oily, wet when dry. Fake shine. I get frizz that floats away from my head like it has been rubbed with a balloon or i stuck my finger in a light socket.
Over conditioned hair feels mushy when wet. When you do the stretch test, it streeeetches and does not return to its original shape (stretching 1/3 its length and returning is normal). I've also heard it described as cotton candy hair. I'm not sure what that means, but I'd guess if you have it you'd know.
