I'm another that's never understood the glycerin is bad in winter arguement. Even though I use it year round, I've always used more in winter and cut back during the summer months.
Also, when I first discovered that my hair liked glycerin (first time being natural), I was living in western Colorado where on a good day the humidity reached 10% and that was year round not just the winter months.
Each head of hair is different that's why there shouldn't be blanket statements with regard about what to use and not use.
