Default Aloe question

So... I've tried aloe in my morning water mist two times and two times I've had icky results - frizzy, dull hair.

Does this mean that my hair "hates" aloe?? I've heard people say that here and haven't really understood it.

Or, does this mean that I shouldn't use aloe yet? Will it do better when the dewpoints are higher?

Any advice would be great, thanks.

I assume you meant you used a mist on day 2 hair. If so, the products you used the previous day can make a difference in how well it works for you. I'd experiment a little more before you put it away altogether. How much aloe are you using? I use about a 50/50 mix of AVG/water. Too much water, and I just frizz up. Too much AVG, and it can make the previous day's products sticky and crunchy. Also, I mist it on, scrunch to reactivate the curls then let it TOTALLY dry before SOTC.

Also, I don't find dewpoint makes any difference - I like it year round, but especially in the summer time.

Thanks guys, it was AVG from the bathroom, NOT LOTD or FOTE. Something else, and it was nothing close to 50/50, just a squirt in the spray bottle. I think I am going to put this bottle of AVG away until I can score some more natural stuff and then use your tips auntnett.

Thanks!
