It seems my hair is now coarse, it never was in the past prior to using aloe vera straight up. It seems to have added protein to my hair shaft on the regular

I now dont require protein treatments monthly as I use too in the past. I'm not sure if I like the effect.

My hair isn't breaking, not that it was in the past but now its really only shed hair coming out.

I know I don't like the feel of my hair itself though,
