Beloved readers, I’ve waxed poetic before in several posts about the benefits of aloe. I’ve even dedicated a post solely to its benefits. (Coming next week!)
I adore aloe as a moisturizer, holding gel, curl-definer, shine spray, softener and scalp soother. It works well in a variety of forms and in this case: a spray.
The purified water is icing on the cake. The fact that pure aloe vera is the first ingredient is what makes me smile. The sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate are FOOD GRADE preservatives, by the way.
I use through out the day, all day, every day, with no fear of build up or flakes. It is WATERY, by the way. It’s a great spritz base for your own concoctions (be sure to preserve them properly!). It works well “on the fly” (via my purse) or for my Cap n’ Go Method. It has the slightest scent, which fades immediately and smells of (what else?) aloe! ^_^
This can also aid in laying down edges, taming fly-aways, keeping ends moist (great for baggy-ers!) and smoothing buns into place (I haven’t forgotten you, bunning beauties!). This won’t give you a texture you don’t have and doesn’t not provide strong curl definition. It aids in definition by helping your hair fight frizz, by hydrating it and adding a bit of strength, WHATEVER your texture. Protein sensitive ladies: Be wary of protein-over load with this, if used daily!
The pump delivers a fantastic amount with ease, with I adore. The packaging is boring, yes…but it gets the point across. I’d prefer some curves, a solid color, sleeker font and a simple graphic…ah, well.
Personally, I think I will switch to aloe gels for stronger hold but this will forever be my cheap, effective “curl reviver”. It is also great for sun burn, a facial spray, facial moisturizer, and a body moisture spray!
