View Full Version : diluting shampoo with aloe gel?

March 27th, 2006, 02:19 PM
As I'm washing daily, two days ago I thought I might dilute my Aveda Shampure shampoo with aloe vera gel, in order to make it more gentle. I tried it, but am not too sure about the results. I feel that my hair is a little bit tangly, and gets stringy faster after brushing, although it doesn't feel oily, rather a little bit crunchy instead of soft and silky as it usually is. Thus, a little bit like I have build-up. So I'm wondering if tomorrow it's back to pure Shampure again...

Has anyone else tried this? What was your experience? And do you refrigerate the mixture, like the pure aloe gel?

I wonder if it would be better to use aloe juice?

I haven't tried it, but diluting with aloe was popular with the Aubrey Organics users some time back. I think they used the juice, as chamogirl mentioned. :smile:
