Increasing Signal Strength on Neurosky Headset

Hey there, I'm working with a dry-electrode headset (specifically the Force Trainer II) and I was looking for ways to increase the signal strength. I saw someone else use aloe vera gel, so I ordered some. Is this good, or should I try something else for conductivity?

    Anything wet will improve conductivity. Have you just tried moistening the skin under the electrodes?

    In EEG, EMG, and ECG, 'conductive' electrode gels are used. These would have slightly better characteristics than plain water. Not sure the ionic content of aloe vera. Such gels are common on Amazon.
