Alcohol On The Hair

OhSunshinex3OhSunshinex3 Registered Users Posts: 74
I had posted a picture of my conditioners on Instagram and this girl wrote that Suave was terrible on the hair. I was instantly confused so I asked why and she said because of the alcohols. I'm CG and use the SN for co-washing only and I'm aware they have alcohols in them. I have done my research so I believe the alcohols in them are moisturizing alcohols. Maybe this girl doesn't know as much about hair as I thought she did?

    That's what it sounds like to me. The alcohols in SN are of the good, fatty, moisturizing variety.

    Thank you! Just wanted to be sure! My hair feels better than ever since I became CG and I felt good because I was finally using good things on my hair and to hear bad things just made me a little discouraged.

    Good to know. Some gels I've used that have alcohol in them made my hair dry & made my hair shed.
