As a succulent, aloe doesn't need a lot of water, but it sounds as though yours is not getting quite enough water. Try watering a little more often. Water thoroughly and then allow the top inch of soil to dry out beteen waterings. You should see the leaves plump up in 2-3 weeks after you increase your frequency of watering. Best wishes with your aloe.
