My boyfriend recently had a wicked awful case of sunburn.. so we bought a TON of all natural aloe gel from Whole Foods.
I KNOW I can use the left over stuff in my hair with good results.. it's supposed to have moisturizing properties.. right? I can't find anything online that's really helpful. Lots of stuff about hair growth and alleviating dandruff.. but what about just moisturizing my hair?
Anyways.. my questions are:
Can anyone provide me with information or a link to the benefits of aloe gel as a moisturizer?
How can I use it on my hair? (mix it with something, apply it directly, etc)?
What can it be used for? (I.E. Styling, conditioning, etc)
Thanks a lot!!! I appreciate the knowledge in advance!!
I have used AVG alone, and mixed with any of my other styling gels. I usually use FOTE when I use it alone, but I must use a good leave in, or I feel kinda dry. When I mix AVG, I use a organic brand that I get in the Health food stores, and it is fine. It is more liquid, and mixes easier. I also use a dab rubbed between wet palms to refresh second and third day hair. At the BSS near my office, you can get a huge FOTE in a pump bottle for about 6 bucks. Love the pump! Cuts time off the styling if you don't have to pick up and squeeze a bottle! HTH...

Thanks for the ideas!!!! I've heard about shealoe a lot.. is this a styling aid? I always thought it was for a DT.
It's a moisturizer that can be used on your hair or skin. You can add essential oils to fragrance it. Some essentials oils (rosemary, peppermint, ylang ylang) are said to have growth enhancing properties.
