Browned and curled aloe!

This is Hera, my Walmart rescue. I’ve had her a few months and kept her on a ledge a foot away from my south facing sliding door. The last few days were sunny and beautiful, so I set her outside in direct sun. Did I scorch her? Can I save her? Much help appreciated. #AloeVera #help
1ft to light, indirect
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 6 days ago
The crispy tips would indicate that it is a bit burnt. How frequently do you water her?? When they start curling up like that I believe it’s because there’s not enough moisture in the leaves
You did not burn your aloe! I have a huge aloe plant and the same thing happens to me. Just put your plant in some shade for a couple of days and it should green back up. Maybe even try giving it some water if you haven’t already. I am no expert but I hope this helps.
When putting inside plants outside it's important to do the "hardening off" procress. Small amount of sun and wind exposure each day to build up their tolerance.
I watered her and set her inside in the shade, but still near my glass door. I’ll be heading out of town for a few days so I’ll see what happens when I get back. Thank you for your advice everyone!
i think you might have to put her in some shade
It just probably needs more water because aloes are supposed to have water in them they look dried up so maybe just some water will help hope this helped oh and keep not directly in the sun till it perks up again
I did the same thing too with my first ever baby aloe Vera plant 😞
