what brand aloe vera gel do you like??

I went to Vitamon Shoppe over the weekend to pick up some aloe vera gel but there were 4-5 different brands I couldn't decide what to buy. What brand does everyone like?

    I love LOTD AVG. They don't add anything to it, really - you can even add it to water and drink it to help with digestion! If it's safe for your belly, it's safe for your hair. I used it last summer and loved it!

    This is the one I use. It has a preservative as well as vitamins and herbs. It does not need to be refrigerated.

    I so need to buy this. Someone else recommended it to me I love more natural products. I also accidentally bought AV juice and have been drinking it since it's too runny for the hair. Dork much?

    Rose Mountain Herbs is my favourite. They don't thicken it, they leave it as is, save for adding vitamin C an something else as preservatives. Its also organic and the 8oz bottle comes with a pump.
    -2b waist-length hair (ringlets in the front and canopy, straighter under-layer)
    -Dense head of med-coarse strands
