Neither is better really, they are both great, but they serve different uses due to their natural composition. Honestly depending on what you need it for you might find yourself with both the gel and the juice in your stash.
Aloe vera juice like the gel, is sold commercially so it isn’t hard to find, Walmart has huge tubs of it in the produce isle now making it very accessible for the general public. The juice is the ultimate moisturizer filled with vitamins and minerals, making it perfect for use on your hair.
To use the juice on your hair all you need is a spray bottle and you can dilute it with a bit of water if you like or just spray it undiluted directly on your strands.
The aloe juice reduces frizz by helping the cuticles to lie flat allowing your hair to appear naturally shiny. You will notice the strength in your strands after just one application.
The gel on the other hand is great for styling because of its composition, you can use to slick your edges, or create a sleek style but the value of the gel like the juice makes it just as healthy when used daily with the same benefits as described above.
We don’t know about you but it really isn’t enough to just say, they both moisturize the hair, reduce frizz you know the typical stuff, kind of like your average conditioner commercial right? We need to know whats in them that makes both the gel and the juice really great, well allow us to educate you.
