Glycerin

what the hell am i looking at!!!!!!

so i've been browsing youtube (again) and i have come across glycerin for adding moisture to natural hair, so i thought i'd give it a try as the shea butter was such a hit!





Glycerin is a neutral, sweet-tasting, colorless, thick liquid which freezes to a gummy paste and which has a high boiling point. Glycerin can be dissolved into water or alcohol, but not oils. On the other hand, many things will dissolve into glycerin easier than they do into water or alcohol. So it is a good solvent.

Glycerin is also highly "hygroscopic" which means that it absorbs water from the air. Example: if you left a bottle of pure glycerin exposed to air in your kitchen, it would take moisture from the air and eventually, it would become 80 per glycerin and 20 percent water.

i mixed 75% water and 25% pure glycerin which i got from my local hair store and i also added a few drops of aveda essential oil in vanilla.

and it feels pretty good though it feel funny on my fingers like kind of waxy?!!? but my hair feels really soft its great for a light daily moisturizer.
