I use aloe vera gel straight out of the bottle. I sometimes layer it over coconut oil or a leave in. I have some sensitivity to protein. My hair responds well to applying aloe vera gel to wet hair, raking and shaking and then squeezing each section for clumping.

Eta: been using it for 3 or 4 months
Every teardrop is a waterfall
