@ Slipstitches..Na'am, I looove aloe vera for my hair. I use to use the aloe vera whole leaf "gel"
I have just recently began using the Aloe vera whole leaf " juice spritz"....boy, what huge difference...my hair feels soooo much smoother the juice , seems to lay the cuticle of hair down much better than the gel.

So, glad you liked the post, and thanks a bunch for stopping by....you know....that it's always a pleasure.

Take care ( smiles)
