OMG- I tried this combo with CJ smoothing lotion as a LI...and it left my hair super dry!!!! Did anyone else experience this with Aloe fix? I am ready to toss the jar....Eco can leave me dry sometimes, but I thought the AF would be moisturizing as are all my other CJ prods. Any advice would be appreciated. Gracias!

Hmm. I've never had a dryness issue with Aloe Fix, and I've never paired it with another gel. Most times I use it alone, cuz it tends to react with my creamy products, but I moisturize before going to bed. I can use the Aloe Fix in any dew point. Perhaps your dews are less than optimal for the amount of glycerin you're using?

You used 2 glycerin heavy (and very dew dependent) products together. What's the dewpoint where you are?? That's the only reason a combo like that IMO would leave someone dry.....

Thanks for the advice, ladies. I am in Westchester- dews have not been that low. Will try the aloe fix alone, no Eco next time. I had no residue when I used with CJ smoothing lotion, so will try that again. How do you ladies usually use AF? I usually get a bit dry with Eco, but LAAAAWD.....my hair felt like a tumbleweed! It took nightly mositurizing witih JBCO to get it back to normal- and I usually mix JBCO with a thinner oil, but not this time. I had to use it straight up! Happy Turkey day to you both!
