If you looked at the shampoo and conditioner post you know I have been using a DIY hair care routine that I’m loving, But, in order for my new shampoo and conditioner program to work I needed to find a way to treat my curls after washing them.
One of the girls I work with told me she had been trying aloe vera gel for her hair so I had to just give it a try. I have been using it now for a month and I can honestly say it is working really well for me. I used to have to slather on the strongest hair cream imaginable to tame the beast that is my hair. Now that I have totally switched to the new shampoo and conditioner and added in the aloe vera as a gel my hair looks as good or even better than it did when I was using all the harsh chemicals. As an added bonus, when I’m exercising and sweating, I don’t have that gross sticky feeling on the back of my neck where the hair cream leaves a trail.
There is nothing to make with this. You just find a good quality aloe vera gel and apply enough to evenly and lightly coat your hair. It will add control and texture without totally weighing your hair down.
