Aloe Vera Gel: A Stretcher's Dream!

Aloe vera gel! I know most people use it on the skin, but lo and behold it's great for the hair too!
Ok, I've decided to start stretching my relaxers to 12-16 weeks...just officially made the decision today. My hair is just not as thick as it used to be...and this will also be great practice for when I start transitioning to natural! So I need all the encouragement, help, and cards I can get to keep me motivated to even last 12 weeks. lol
On to aloe vera gel...
Love it, love it, love it!!! This is definitely a staple of mine. This is what I use to slick my hair back in a bun everyday. The thing that I like most about this gel is tha I can comb my hair after using it. It's a very soft gel and it doesn't flake for me. It has a strong hold, but not too strong. This can be found in the sunscreen section of any pharmacy or grocery store.
Now that I'm stretching longer, I definitely will be using aloe vera gel a lot more... Oh and did I mention it's 100% natural???

what is the brand of your aloe vera gel? I love to use gel when stretching. It defines your waves really well. Stretching really makes your hair thicker!!
