Just Bought Some Aloe Gel! So Excited!

Hey, guys! So I just bought some FOTE Aloe Vera gel. About 4$ for a 16oz. bottle. I'm SOOO excited to try it tomorrow. I know it doesn't have the 'holding' properties most gels do but for me that is OK. Gels with better hold kind of just "freeze" my curls when wet, making them very stringy and limp. I can't do my hair when it is damp or I get some serious frizz.

Even if it doesn't work for my hair, I can definitely use it as an acne spot treatment and for sunburns this summer. (My fair skin just LOVES to roast and bring me pain. LOL! )

I am very excited to use this. Any tips?

P.S. I also heard you can make a second day spritz with the gel, some water, and some sort of oil (I might use peppermint oil. )

I'm sure I would love aloe for a gel if I wasn't outrageously allergic...so sad. Tell us how it goes!
I use it - sparingly, in the summer - after my conditioner - and before my styling products to add moisture, and to add shape to my curls.
Ooo - I just picked up a bottle of the exact same brand a few weeks ago. I'm glad I saw your post - I'm going to try this tomorrow a.m.
