To play the opposite side, aloe of any kind does nothing really special for my hair, wet or dry. My dry, med-highly porous and fine-med-course hair, needs a moisturizing DT once a week either with heat, left on most of the day or slept in overnight. I use JC WDT religiously once a week.

Once I started using more natural products, I stopped doing regular DTs. I thought my hair was well moisturized. Woke up one day, did the hair strand test and my hair snapped immediately! So, back to the DTs for me.

Now I do hair strand tests every couple of weeks to monitor its condition. This helps me to know when my hair needs moisture as opposed to protein.
