American Sign Language:  "aloha"

Notes:  "Aloha" is used in spoken Hawaiian  as a greeting or farewell.
Thus it is the equivalent of both hello and good-bye.
In ASL we just wave hello and good-bye.

So far my contacts in Hawaii tell me that they just use a big wave of the "five" hand to say ALOHA.  One of my friends "made up" a sign that starts with wave with an "A" handshape.  But from what I can tell, that sign hasn't spread, and so I can't really recommend it.  For now, just smile and do a rainbow-like wave with the palm forward.
