|1BlessedNatural: Adding Aloe Vera Gel to Your Conditioner|
Happy Thursday, my blessed naturals!
I've heard from many of you about adding aloe vera to your conditioner. In the past, I've also done aloe vera juice rinses to restore the lost protein in my hair. Three weeks ago, I decided (at the last minute) to add some aloe vera gel to my conditioner because I didn't have any more protein conditioner.
After washing my hair, I squeezed a large amount of Suave Almond and Shea Butter conditioner into my hands. Then, I squeezed a large amount of the Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel into my hands, rubbed them together, and applied it to each of the 4 sections of hair. Afterwards, I sat under a heating cap for onehour, and then I rinsed the mixture out of my hair. My hair felt softer and silky, but I cannot say that the aloe vera gel and conditioner mixture was a good replacement for a protein treatment. My hair is usually stronger after a protein treatment. As a result, for me the mixture is a great conditioner, but not protein treatment.
If I try this conditioner mix again, I may try using aloe vera juice instead, because it has a higher protein content than the gel I used. If you are going to try doing the aloe vera gel and conditioner treatment, be sure that you are not protein sensitive or allergic. You also want to skip this treatment if you are experiencing protein overload. When you do the treatment, you can mix the ingredients together in a bowl for even distribution. I was just being spontaneous, lol. Also, be sure to rinse your hair really well.
