Shea Moisture question

I leave in a very dry climate and often have dry hair. Would any one recommend the Shea Moisture brand (or even specific products from their line) for someone who lives in a dry climate? I am afraid of glycerin due to the drying affects.

Hair hates glycerin
I really like their shampoos. The coconut hibiscus and the black soap are my favorite. I don't think glycerin in shampoo would cause problems, but I am not sure about the conditioner or styling products. I'm not in a dry climate but their curl milk makes my bleached hair really soft.
I live in a climate that is hot and humid almost all year round. It doesn't start too get cold where i live until late Fall. The weather happens to stay primarily on the cold side until early Spring. I am able to use products with glycerin in them all year round, no matter the season. However, i do understand that even though i can successfully use products all year round that have glycerin in them, i do understand others curlies not being able to do the same. Last Winter, it actually snowed for 2 days down in Southeast Louisiana where i live. Even though its a rarity, it actually does snow here too.

Not all products that have glycerin work for my hair. But, when i find ones that do work for my hair, i do continue to use them. Glycerin happens to be one of the ingredients my naturally dry curls loves the most. So, I simply go by what works for my hair period.

Due to your not wanting to use using glycerin in your hair, because your afraid it will be be drying to it, and you want to try the Shea Moisture line, i woud highly recommend going to the Shea Moisture website- where you will find listed their haircare products, along with a complete ingredient listing for each one. So, that way, you will know exactly which hair products they offer that don't contain glycerin in them. Hope this info helps!

I am a little confused because in the naturally store, the ingredients list vegetable glycerin but on the shea moisture store website they do not list any. Does anyone have any explanations for this??

Edit: Some have them and some don't.
