What's the fuss about glycerin?

Like Tree3Likes

I'm not an expert on this obviously, since I posted the question. However i would think using it as a leave in would be the problem because more of it stays in your hair.

Like Knotty-Maddy and sewt15 said, it all depends on your own hair (and the mood it's in at any given time ). KCKT and KCCC are always the products I can count on during arid weather. I love to try new products and to experiment, but KCKT and KCCC are always, always in my cupboard. When it's not so dry, I really like KCSS (some glycerin) as well, but I have to be careful, because it can knot my ends if my hair is extremely dry.

Glycerin is not good to use in extremely humid or dry weather. Glycerin draws the moisture to what is drier. Since I live in a desert, using products with lots of glycerin makes my hair dry and brittle because the glycerin takes away moisture from the hair and gives it to the drier air. Glycerin itself isn't bad; it depends on the climate and dew point.
