Trader Joe's Aloe Vera Gel!

I have this gel but I am worried about using it! I read somewhere that the ingredients were harmful. Can someone help me?

    Can you post the ingredients?
    remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!! :read2:
    My hair:
    2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
    My routine:
    Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
    RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
    LI: KCKT or CJSL
    Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

    Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.

    I like to mix a little in my flax seed gel. Works great for me.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    Keihs- How does it work for you? Do you like it?

    MI001- Yes! I'll have to check the bottle!

    Adthomas- Hmm, I'm going to try that! I recently made flaxseed gel, but haven't quite figured out the best way to apply it.
