- Vegetable glycerin is a compound that comes from vegetable oil, usually palm or coconut. It has strong humectants properties, meaning it is able to retain moisture.
Vegetable glycerin’s moisturizing properties are beneficial for hair as well as skin. Dry, brittle hair will benefit from using hair care products made with it. Direct application of the oil can be extra powerful. If someone suffers from a dry, flaky scalp, rubbing vegetable glycerin into it can alleviate this irritation. In addition to its moisturizing properties, it also strengthens the hair and makes breakage and split ends less likely.
Mix vegetable glycerine with water in a spray bottle to be used as a daily spritz for hair and scalp. You may add aloe vera juice/ gel and your favourite oil to this spritz for a more moisturizing effect.
