My hair hates aloe too. I actually got aloe gel, and when I put that stuff on my hair it made it rough to the point where I could hardy pull my hands through it. Also, it left my hair undefined and flat.

Also, my hair hate baking soda. No matter how little I use and how much I dilute it, baking soda just makes my hair terribly dry and frizzy.
