  • Aloe Vera Gel And Coconut Oil

     

    Today I am planning on getting these 2 things. I was wondering if you can use cocnut oil by itself for deep conditioning? Also if you mix aloe vera gel and cocnut oil what can you use those for?

    Ok, Now I have the gel and ion-about-coconut-oil\" class=\"hrln\">the coconut oil. Can I use the coconut oil by itself for a deep conditioner?

    Yeah you could use the hair-is-dry\" class=\"hrln\">coconut oil as a hot oil treatment. You could even use it as a leave-in if your hair like oils like that.

    I use the aloe vera gel and coconut oil along with glycerin,essential oils, wheat germ oil, and little conditioner to use as a gel for my twists. I like how they turn out with this mixture.

    I am thinking of using coconut oil and aloe vera gelly together as a twist mix. I have been using castor oil but I wanted to try something else. The castor smell is getting to me. I am trying to infuse some now to try that option though.

    I have just recently bought some coconut oil...put a little on my hair and my hair looked fabulous. It has never looked to healthy and shiny and did not feel greasy.

    I am currently wearing my hair out and my usual morning routine was to spritz with aloevera juice with a little condish and apply my regular hair gel, but I decided to mix some aloe vera gel and my coconut oil together and try this morning. Today my hair doesn't feel as stiff and hard, it still looks great, but I think I need to add a tad bit more of the coconut oil.

    All in all, it's a great mixture.

    I am a newbie and I tried to use aloe vera and coconut oil as a mixture to do my twist on freshly washed hair and guess what. My hair loved it!!! It was so very soft and had great sheen as well.

    Ooh, I'm so excited! I have coconut oil and I never use it. Time to get to mixing!!

    ...

    This is a very good question. Any suggestions, or actual recipes? Say, do you add twice as much coconut oil than aloe vera gel?

    Thanks! ^_^

    I have used this mixture to twist my hair with. My hair didn't like it (my hair just doesn't like gel). It works great if I mix some shea butter in with it

    I just tried a mix of aloe vera and coconut oil as a moisturizer to stretch my hair. I loved it! My hair was soft, fluffy and not at all greasy when I took the braids out. Next, I will try a mix of aloe vera gel, honey and coconut oil. I'm using honey for its humectant properties as well as for more hold. If this works, it'll be my holy grail moisturizer. I'll come back to update.

    I've been using a mixture of aloe vera gel, coconut oil, shea butter and emulsifying wax to twist my hair for year! It is the best thing for my hair. I've tried other things and I always come back to my holy grail. This keeps my hair moist and supple and provides hold without weighing my fine strands down.
