Adding Water and/or Aloe Vera Gel to IC Fantasia

Hello Natural Ladies,
Have any of you ever added water and/or Aloe Vera Gel to IC Fantasia gel. I'm trying to cut it a bit where it wont be too heavy and have more moisture. I don't really know what I am doing or if this even makes sense:) Just trying not to have to purchase an expensive gel. I just would like a gel that would give me a medium hold with shine and not weigh down my hair. I will appreciate your help. Thanks.

    I use to add water to Fantasia IC to cut it a bit...if not, my hair would be weighed down and crunchy.

    Thanks Nikki. That's good advice. I guess adding water will really help it to not weigh my hair down as much. I have a 20 oz jar size. How much water should I add to that?

    I was afraid to add it directly to my jar, so I'd mix it with water in my hand. I was worried about mold...don't know if this was a valid concern. I just scooped what I needed, added a little water, and then elmusified it in my hands before applying it.

    I used a spray bottle of water and gel mix

    Hey Soon2B,
    What measurement did you use? Like how much water to how much IC Fantasia? Did this work good for you? Thanks a lot.

    I also appreciate your comment curlynikki. Girl, your hair is the bomb!!!!

    I have an 8 oz spray bottle and probably add a little over quarter size of gel. Plus I add a few squeezes of suave con and a few drops of olive oil for moisture and shine. I use this as my everyday curl refresher.
