As the temperature starts to cool down in the fall, many naturals might start to look for glycerin free natural hair products that will keep their hair moisturized during the cold season.

Glycerin is used in many hair products as a humectant to bring moisture into your hair from the environment. It also creates a barrier to lock in moisture so that your hair stays soft and moisturized for as long as possible.

Glycerin can be good or bad for your hair depending on the type of environment that you’re in. This is because in the right environment, glycerin can draw moisture into your hair and help it to retain moisture.
For glycerin to really do its job of moisture retention, the humidity level in your environment has to be about 70% or higher. However, if you live in a dry environment where humidity is less than the 70% mark, then your hair might not want to be anywhere near glycerin.
Personally for me and some other naturals, my hair responds to glycerin-based product the same way all year-long. However, some naturals have experienced dry, lifeless hair when they use glycerin in the cold season.
If you have the hair type that does not like glycerin in the fall and winter, I have compiled a list of recommended styling products that you can use in your hair without compromising the look and feel of your hair.
