    Default Use of Glycerin?

    Hey people,

    I ended buying a lot of glycerin just because I seen a lot of people talking about it online, but even when I add it to water my hair feels "hard" once it dries and shrinks even more. I had no idea it was like a thick syrup smh

    Has anyone tried adding it to a deep conditioner? And how much do you add?

    What are some other ways of adding it into your regimen?

    Glycerin will usually work for you if the climate you're in is humid. It make hair more porous/open which can result in dry hair for some. If you are in dry/arid climate, it may take moisture from your hair into the air. Here's a link from a search..https://www.nappturality.com/forums/...light=glycerin

    Find what works for your porosity and texture

    Glycerin works good with conditioners. You can add a teaspoon or 1/2 a teaspoon. Play around with it and see what works for you. If you use it in your spritz don't added a lot to your mix. A little glycerin goes a long ways. One squirt is more than enough in a spritz. I use mine the whole year.

    Thanks, glad to know it can be used year round. I heard it couldn't be used in fall/winter as soon as I got it. But what do you include in your spritz and how do you use it/how often? Thanks again

    Hi, I used to live in a Southern Ontario, Canada, and I used it during the winter with good results. When the dew point was high and there was a lot of humidity, my hair was the softest and most moisturized, but I still used it all winter and it was fine.

    When my hair is loose I use a little bit of glycerin in water when I make a homemade hair spritz. I don't have an official measurement, but I figure the amount I use is no more than a teaspoon to a tablespoon per bottle.

    Good to hear someone in Canada uses it in the winter, and nice to see a fan of Munroe!

    Nice thread. I'm glad someone asked because I've been wondering too. I live in a humid area (which makes my hair poof.) so does this mean glycerin will make it even MORE poofy?
