Aloe Vera Juice/Gel and Protein Sensitive Hair?
 
I can't decide if my hair likes aloe vera or not. If I mix it with bottled water and oil it seems ok, but without the water it's not so nice. Is it considered a protein?

Maybe its to much not diluted? Like taking a shot compared to drinking a mixed drink? Sorry that's the 1st comparison that came to mind lol!

Lol! Good analogy! I've tried it a variety of ways and can't seem to figure it out.

I have not yet found a way for my curls to like Aloe Vera juice or gel.

For me Aloe behaves like protein, so I stay away from it alltogether.

ive wondered about this as well, cause when i started using aloe vera my hair LOVED it but after awhile, it made my hair all icky, like what protein does. but i find it ok when ive mixxed it with oil or somthing like that then use it my hair seems to like that

My hair reacts the same to aloe as it does to too much protein...dry, straw like hair. It's hard to find products without aloe. It's very frustrating to have all these limitations, no protein, no aloe and not glycerin.

I mix aloe vera juice in my leave in and it is wonderful. :)

I had a recent protein mishap & during the ensuing damage control regimen I thought everything was under control, enter aloe :angry7:

My precious KCCC has aloe. I hadn't realized that during recovery my hair might not appreciate aloe & it did not:thumbdown:

As soon as I applied it, the hair seized.:cry: I went to Sally's and got the GVP conditioning balm. Holy moley is that good stuff, and cheap too! Under 8$.

I also bought a bottle of Shea Moisture African Black Soap. Poo'd with the stuff & slathered in a good amount of the conditioning balm, & rinsed out. Scrunched in a bunch more after it dried. To my dismay, I woke up this morning to -0 curl.

I was at a loss as to what to do this morning. Afraid to try any products with protein. I washed with Loreal Evercreme, and used TJTTT RO. Still no curl but my hair felt like it was back to normal. I ended up using KCCC & BANG!....curls are back!!!!

So there's a moral to this story. (YMMV depending on your hair's properties) When I used KCCC before my hair had fully recovered from protein overload, the aloe in KCCC made my hair act similarly to protein.

Once well hydrated with DC tx, my hair not only was able to handle the KCCC, but needed it to develop it's curl again.:lovestory:

I'll likely continue with the protein free products and use products with Aloe instead as it seems my hair bounces back from the latter easier, especially with the use of the conditioning balm.

I was just wondering if the CJCR gives you any problem when deep conditioning, since it has aloe in it and you are sensitive?

Thanks for the info.
