We all know that what is good for one person’s natural hair isn’t always good for another. That is why going natural and staying natural can be a bit of a hassle. Our hair needs different things and there is no one cookie cutter answer or method to achieve the look you are going for. Natural hair takes time and patience in order to get it just right.
If you live in an extremely cold environment (Winter time is pretty brutal on the east coast) and you notice your hair is dryer than normal it could be time to switch up your products. If your product stash contains products with glycerin, that may very well be the culprit. Glycerin is a humectant which helps your hair absorb moisture from the air. However if the air around you is dry, then your hair will be sucking in the dryness as well. So of course doing what we do best, we curated a list of 15 natural hair products without glycerin to help you with your daily hair care needs, and wash day routine.
