Hello, hello, hello!
So I hear so many people talk about Glycerin, but what is it? What does it do? How does it help? Let's try to answer some of those questions.
What is Glycerin?
Glycerin is also known as Glycerol and is a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid. It is used in hair care products by providing lubrication and as a humectant. (A humectant is a a chemical that helps products retain moisture) Glycerin can absorb moisture from the air and has antiseptic qualities
What does Glycerin do?
Glycerin absorbs water from the surround environment. The environment is usually the air but can be your hair and skin if the air is particularly dry.
How does it help?
It will help maintain your hair and scalps moisture levels by drawing moisture into the hair and will help to prevent the frizz of dry hair.
How to utilize it in your routine?
1. Purified water about 2 cups (Why purified? Because regular tap water has chemical particles that bind to the hair and weighs it down)
2. 5 squeezes of glycerin
3. 3 drops of Peppermint oil
