Glycerine For Hair
Glycerine helps lock water molecules which adds moisture to the hair. This reduces frizz and makes your hair soft to touch.
It provides protection against environmental pollution and other external damages.
Glycerine helps prevent split ends and breakage.
Do not use too much glycerine as it is sticky
When Not To Use Glycerine? 🙁
When the climate is hot and there is less moisture in the air around you, skip glycerine from your skincare and haircare recipes.
Glycerine does make your hair soft and tangle free PROVIDED, the humidity in the air should be just the right amount for it to work.
If the air is too dry, you may end up with frizzy hair as glycerine cannot do its job correctly.
What Is An Alternative To Glycerine?
You can add a teaspoon of Vitamin E oil to the leave-in conditioner.
