Haven't tried that but I do like the Curl Queen. Which I think is similar. It is shiny and feels very good, it doesn't have a whole lotta hold so I put some BRHG with it usually. But even without any BRHG it kept frizz at bay and made pretty curls, they just didn't hold together for all day.

Wash: DevaCare Low Poo
Detangle & Rinseout: Walgreens or Sally's Conditioning Balm (always)
Leave-in: DevaCare OneC (budget choice is GFTN)
Style: ReCoil & DevaCare Arc Angel (budget choices are HESMU or Got2BSpikedUp)

I've tried CQ and AFL and they are nothing alike. I love CQ, haven't had any luck at all with AFL, which is shocking to me because my hair LOVES aloe vera. Left me really soft no matter what gel I pair it with and I end up limp, no enhancement at all, no definition and frizzy. It was such a weird reaction I still can't believe it happened. I was going to wait to try it this summer again to see if it's still a total flop - then probably sell it on the boards.
Wurly, fine, thin, moderately to heavily porous. Mod CG.

Thanks guys for the feedback, it's actually AFL- so we'll see how it works. I'm going to give it a try.

I think I'm a 2 (except on days when I think I'm a 3, but whatever)....Aloe Fix fluffs out my hair. It's perfect for low dewpoint days and a disaster on high dew days. I use it on dry hair. It adds volume.

I think it's kind of a unique product and I like to have it on hand. Let us know how you like it.
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift

I tried the regular AF and it was too heavy for my hair. Then I got the AFL and love it! I definitely need another gel on top, otherwise my hair poofs out by the end of the day.
