Glycerin is naturally formed during the cold-process soap-making method. Glycerin is a natural humectant (softener and moisturizer) which helps draw and retain moisture into the skin and scalp. It is believed to penetrate hair and skin, softening and swelling it, making it water retentive.
Daily Hair Tip
Know your hair type and be realistic about what hair styles work best with it. Don't agree to a new hair style that you know in your heart will be impossible to duplicate at home.
