Default FOTE Aloe Vera Gel

I just picked some of this up at the grocery store because I've heard a lot of good things about it. Have a lot of people had success with it? How exactly do you use it?.....just as a regular 'ol gel? My hair is really thick, 3B/3C, so I need something that has a lot of hold. Will this work on my hair, or is it more for people with wavy hair that is in the 2 category? (Sorry....I know that was a lot of questions )

No this does not have a lot of hold. It's just curl enhancing and moisturizing. It has almost no hold on it's own

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

I guess it really depends on your hair...cause it actually gives me plenty of hold. I just started using it again. I just leave a little conditioner in and then mix some aloe gel with a little bit of oil in my hand and smooth it over my hair. For the past few days that's all I've ben using and it works pretty well. The aloe gives my curls a little more weight.

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.

you could try mixing it with a regular gel for more hold

I used this for a time. It started out great, but eventually made my hair very dry. It also caused a bit of breakage. My hair is thin/fine 3a/b.

How does that work for you, the aloe under your gel? I have been using a little aloe and some grapseed oil and it has been working for hold, but recently my hair hasn't been as shiny as it usually is. I don't know if aloe builds up or something but I wanna find something else.
