    Ok, I probably shouldn't post this, but it was too funny. I was using it for it's original purpose and had some left on my hand so I rubbed it into my hair. DH and I were laughing so hard it kinda wrecked the moment. lmao.gif

    I know this has come up before, but I really thought they took the glycerin out of the formulation. Now I'm looking on drugstore.com and yeah, the glycerin is back there too.

    The reason how I found this out was that I was searching "glycerin" on drugstore.com. As you can see here, four out of the five top results are for glycerin laxative suppositories. Right below that used to be "Astroglide, NOW GLYCERIN FREE!!!1"

    Why wouldn't you want glycerin in Astroglide if you were not going to put it in your hair, and a major use of it is laxative suppositories... do the math... :D

    Hmmm...you got me thinking to look in my "goody drawer" to see if an unused product is CG friendly LOL. My DH got a chuckle out of this thread.

    OMG I'm dying here.... :laughing7::laughing7:


    ...and now I'm wondering if anything in my goodie drawer is CG too... or would it attract bees?

    or worse... perverts?!?


    scratch that idea altogether... LOLOLOL!!!!

    ETA - and here's where I publicly wonder what exactly POLYQUATS are in Astroglide for?!?! HOLD?!? LMAO!!!!!!!!!!

    I think some curlies have said that gylcerin makes their heads itch. An allergic reaction may be why they took it out of the product for a while. That would be most unpleasant if you were using it for it's original use...

    I used to have a bottle of this that I hated because I felt like it would never wash off. Has anyone experienced build up of this on your hair?

    *giggles* I thought for sure the board had a spammer leaving posts about... um.... personal lubricant! lol

    They really should consider a name change for that product!
