Aloe vera gel directly from plant

I plan on buying a bigger aloe plant to use the gel for my hair.I prefer to use 100% natural aloe gel than the ones in the stores that have stuff added and taken away.Did this gel from plant make anyone hair flakey? I'm going to blend the gel because it is hard and then use it like in this vid:

    Well I don't know about the flakey part (sorry) but let me know if you figure out a good way to use the gel from the Aloe Plant...meaning get it out of the leaf and actually into whatever you are mixing it with.

    I tried this last week and ended up with it on my hands only! It was a mess. I do think it would help if you had a very large plant.

    Thanks=).I have a very small one that I got from someone and it didn't have enough gel so a bigger plant would be better.

    I got the gel on my hands too lol but I can avoid the mess, if I cut the leaf good.I cut off the top layer(because the leaf is small I didn't have to cut more than once) like the girl did in the first vid.I hold the end of the leaf while I use the knife to scrap off the gel into the bowl.When I get a bigger one I'll have to take out the gel just like in the first vid.You could also cut once in the middle of the plant and scrap out the gel like the lady did in the second vid.
