Glycerin is a viscous, viscous chemical that is completely colorless or odorless. Thanks to these properties, glycerin is an ideal component to add to any cosmetic product.
If earlier glycerin was added mainly to household chemicals (soap, dishwashing liquid, etc.), now it is part of any hair care product.
The presence of glycerin in hair care products is explained by the fact that it has a beneficial effect on their structure. Thanks to glycerin, the curls soften and moisturize, get additional shine, begin to grow better, and also acquire protection from negative manifestations of the external environment (for example, sunlight, cold, wind, etc.).
The main quality of glycerin is that it is able to retain moisture. Glycerin creates a film over the entire surface of the hair, which prevents the liquid from evaporating, which means that the hair is provided with excellent moisture.
It is thanks to this property that homemade hair masks with glycerin are so widespread and popular. They can be done to strengthen the curls, to improve the condition of the hair, in the event that the hair is split, brittle and dry. Since glycerin has a beneficial effect on the condition of the scalp, masks with it in the composition can be done for dandruff, itching or other problems.
It is important to know that it is undesirable to use glycerin without any additives. In its pure form, it absorbs moisture and can, instead of moisturizing, dry the hair unnecessarily.
As part of hair masks, glycerin has a very mild effect and has practically no contraindications. The only thing that you should pay attention to is the likelihood of individual intolerance. Before using any home remedy with glycerin in the composition, it is strongly recommended that you check if you are allergic to glycerin.
A mask for split ends and brittle hair is done as follows. It is necessary to mix castor oil with glycerin in a ratio of 1 to 4. Add 1 yolk to the resulting mass and mix again. This composition should be thoroughly rubbed into the scalp and applied to the hair along its entire length. Then you need to wrap your head with a towel. The mask is washed off after 30-40 minutes after application.
To prevent hair from falling out, you can prepare the following mask. It is necessary to mix 2 tablespoons of glycerin and the same amount of burdock oil. Add a couple of drops of tea tree and lemon essential oil. This mask must be rubbed into the roots of the hair, and then wrap the head with a towel. The mixture is washed off 30 minutes after application.
