I think you're right about the oils. I really think they're the main problem. I'm going to look into the experiences of other people with aloe vera (I have an exam in a few hours so no time beforehand).
Next time I'm going to wash my hair with just shampoo and use just the Curl Queen gel as my styler. I think that's the easiest way to see what influence all the oils have on my hair. I still have a little more than half of the conditioner left and almost everything from CCCL since I got that one just last Saturday and used only three little blobs. Hope they can go on the swap boards 'cause they were quite expensive and I think it's a waste to just not use them (also because I don't have money right now to buy anything new).
