This weekend I used fruit of the earth 100% Aloe Vera gel and it flaked in my hair :( I woke up styled my hair and decided to put some aloe vera gel on the sides to make the fly-aways stay put but later that day I looked at my hair and there were big white flakes in it from the gel. Has anyone else experience this? Can someone recommend a gel that will not flake.
Thanks ladies :D

I have used Fruit of the Earth for some time now, and it has never flaked with me. Maybe it was something else you were using. I have found that some products can not be mixed. I do get flaking if I mix one gel on top of the other.

I agree. I love FOTE but I use it by itself or with some jojoba oil. I found that if I mixed it with a leave in conditioner (like say Bumble and Bumble), it would flake up in my hand so I can only imagine what it would do to my hair.

I had that problem with the flakes, so I swithed to their vitimin E gel and have no flakes..

Thanks ladies. Before I used it I put some Paul Mitchell foaming pomade in my hair so maybe thats why I had the flaking. I will use it alone and see if I get the same results. Thanks again

I also tried the FOTE Aloe Vera Gel and had no problems with flakes.
