Alcohol On The Hair

I had posted a picture of my conditioners on Instagram and this girl wrote that Suave was terrible on the hair. I was instantly confused so I asked why and she said because of the alcohols. I'm CG and use the SN for co-washing only and I'm aware they have alcohols in them. I have done my research so I believe the alcohols in them are moisturizing alcohols. Maybe this girl doesn't know as much about hair as I thought she did?

Thank you! Just wanted to be sure! My hair feels better than ever since I became CG and I felt good because I was finally using good things on my hair and to hear bad things just made me a little discouraged.

Good to know. Some gels I've used that have alcohol in them made my hair dry & made my hair shed.
