glycerin is bad in low dews, and you talk about arid air, so i am assuming the dew points are very low where you live. glycerin seeks out moisture, if it is not in the air then it will take it from your hair, and dry your hair out. glycerin is great in mid dews, and my hair happens to love it in high dews, but it's the kiss of death for hair in low dews for sure!!
if glycerin is low on the ingredient list of a product that is very moisturizing, then it's ok. every product is formulated differently, so it's again trial and error.
