Default Alcohol in hairproducts

How do you feel about this?

I read somewhere that alcohol evaporates (sp?) so fast anyway it doesnt dry out hair. Is it true?

Well ever since I cut out drying alcohols from my hair product 'menu' my hair is more moisturized...and last year I made the mistake of using a gel that had alcohol denat in it and it stripped my hair dry dry dry...

Oh yes, I agree! Once I cut out styling products that had alcohol, such as in my spray gels, my hair totally shaped up and is so much more healthy-looking and moisturized.

I got his this tip from my Devachan colorist about 2 years ago and I've never looked back!!

Fatty alcohols are great but drying alcohols are a one way ticket to unhappy hair for me. Period.
