I would not. Depending on the time of day, the aloe vera juice can be quite acidic. This is because aloe has CAM metabolism.

Thanks Hannah - would the acidity of the aloe "de-activate" some of the actives in the serum?  I use the aloe because it has really helped me with my itchy scalp.  I guess I can always rotate the serum with the aloe.

Yes, it could. It is a good idea to rotate them.

When my scalp is itchy I use sea kelp bioferment.
