Erica is curious about glycerin because on forums, women have said that is has helped them keep their hair moisturized but how can she use it without having sticky hair.


Hair Tip #1 Glycerin Is a Humectant and Humectants Attract Water


Make sure that when you are using glycerin, it is contained within a leave in moisturizer or deep conditioner to help your hair to absorb as much moisture (water) as possible to allow your hair to reach its optimal level of moisture.

Hair Tip #2 Great in Deep Conditioners Banana, Honey, and Aloe Vera Juice/Jel


Glycerin is a phenomenal ingredient to use in deep conditioners because it is a humectant like banana, honey and aloe Vera which is great for attracting as much water to the surface of your hair. With the help of a steamer, you will allow water to penetrate deeply into the layers of your hair to internally moisturize your hair from the inside out.


Hair Tip #3 Glycerin in Humid Weather Can Make Hair Limp, In Dry Climates Sticky


In dry climate (low humidity) your hair will feel sticky and this can cause your scalp to feel dry and in need of moisture because glycerin is looking to absorb water from where it can which will be in this case, from your scalp. Use glycerin instead in a moderate to high humidity environment but still “test the waters” with this product because in high humidity, this can cause your hair to feel so moist that it becomes limp!
