We’ve been told time and again to stay away from alcohol in hair products.
Naija Hairland wants to let you know it’s not all alcohol that are bad in our hair products.
First thing you need to know is what makes some alcohols good for hair and why are others bad.
Good alcohols add moisture by drawing water in the hair.
They are used to add slip for detangling and add thickness to the product.
While bad alcohols are very drying to the hair which is not a good thing for women with curly, kinky hair.
They are usually the short chain alcohols and are used to help products evaporate quickly.
