Oh my god, curlsAbound, THANK YOU for bringing this product to my attention!! I had a suspicion that my hair loves aloe - I haven't experimented with straight aloe in a while (laziness!) but my go-to CO has always been Suave Naturals Aloe and Water Lily, and no matter what other scent I try, none of the other Suave line have ever done as much for me as this one.
So when I saw that the primary ingredient in the AOMM was aloe in your post, I used the iHerb coupon code (thanks!) and ordered a bottle.
I don't want to jump to conclusions as I only used it today but... WOW!
I didn't do a full routine in my hair (I went out last night and just wanted to rinse the bar smell from my hair lol) so I just co-washed with the Suave Aloe and Waterlily, and then used a little bit of that as leave in and put the AOMM on top, then plopped and air dried.
And the result is phenomenal! My curl pattern is strong and the curls are well-defined - I've been having a hard time with separated curls and very thin ringlets lately, and this gave my hair a real boost, especially considering I didn't use a styler or my other go-to, BRHG.
I have to sleep on it to see how it holds up for second day by itself (I usually get decent second day 90% of the time with the BRHG and my satin pillowcases) but so far it's absolutely amazing! I'm excited to experiment with combinations, as it's already doing a lot for my hair on its own.
So THANK YOU!!! I was in desperate need of a new product after four years of using the same two things over and over and this might just be an HG product for me!
