Well for me avoid it all cost. I can't use any products with glycerin in it. It does not matter how small the ratio is or how far down on the ingredient list it appears. The product will make my hair hard and brittle. Glycerin always make my hair dry and hard. I tried it on wet hair, dry hair, homemade mixtures, heavy handed, light handed, low dew point, high dew points. It just does not work for me. I can put the product in my hair and it will look cute but once my hair dries it is a serious brillo pad. This was a hard lesson to learn because just about every product that is out there has glycerin in it. I could never figure out why my hair was so dry.
