Recent Purchase: 100% Vegetable GlycerinSunday, April 06, 2014
Just purchased a bottle of 100% Vegetable Glycerin at the Health Food Store. I'm looking forward to using it, mixed with distilled water, in my regimen as the weather gets warmer. If you don't know me by now, I'm a huge Glycerin fan. I find it very moisturizing and hydrating for my hair. Glycerin is a humectant that helps attract moisture from the air into the hair. When used in a diluted state, the hair will become softer, smoother, more manageable and fuller. I may use 30-40% Glycerin and 60-70% Distilled water. I'll have to play around with the measurements for the best results.
Above is the spray bottle I plan on using for my mixture. I got this spray bottle from Sally Beauty Supply store for $2.99. I'll either use the Glycerin/water mix to replace my moisturizer (and then seal) or as a re-fresher spritz throughout the day to re-hydrate my hair and new growth, if necessary. I know some use the mixture prior to moisturizing the hair and then proceed with a moisturizing hair butter to seal it in. I guess it all depends on what your hair likes. *Off to go experiment!*
Are you a Glycerin user? If so, how do you use it in your regimen?
