Is ethanol one of the drying alcohols? I have a feeling that it is -- but there are many alcohols that are moisturizing & that appear in all our favorite hair stuff. As for the mint, like tea tree oil, it's stimulating for the scalp. I imagine they could both be drying to the hair, but again, they are in some of our other hair products, as well, so who knows, it might work for you.
I've been looking at my lotions, too. It's interesting to see how many different products we use that are essentially the same (cf: the KY in hair discussion!). I'd be careful about the waxes that are in a lot of lotions.
Any day I expect to see a thread that begins, "I was brushing my teeth this morning and I wondered if my toothpaste could be curl enhancing . . . "
