: confused about humectants & anti-humectants
This week I've ever been CG in really low dews (mid to high teens), and I am noticing my hair feels a little dry and has a lot more surface frizz. My routine has been pretty simple: co-wash, followed by a richer rinse-out, then rake in leave-in and smooth/scrunch in gel. I have been using Garnier Fructis pure clean gel with great success, but now I notice two of the first three ingredients are humectants (sorbitol & glycerin). I tried sealing with argan oil (only oil I had on hand), and I think it made it a little better, but still not great.
I started looking for anti-humectant and glycerine-free products in the product reviews section of this site, but I'm a little confusedů many products are described as "anti-humectant," but still have humectants in them?
How does this all work? Can a product have humectants in it and still be anti-humectant overall?
(P.S. product recommendations for low dews are very welcome!)
