Is sorbitol a filmy ingredient?
I've been looking through the ingredients list of many gels I've tried and hated and I'm finding sorbitol is a common ingredient. When sorbitol is in a product my hair feels gunky, as if something sticky dried and the crunch is the kind the doesn't scrunch. It's like a glue crunch. You have to forcefully pull the hair apart.
Am I accurately attributing that to sorbitol? It's described as sugar alcohol. It seems to make sense.
