Not all products containing alcohol are bad for your hair

Not all alcohol dries out hair and causes frizz--some types of alcohol, such as fatty alcohols, can actually draw in moisture and help prevent hydration loss.  Lauryl alcohol, Cetyl alcohol, Myristyl alcohol, Stearyl alcohol, Cetearyl alcohol, and Behenyl alcohol are all fatty alcohols that are typically derived from various natural sources such as coconut.  These fatty alcohols are usually found in moisturizers and conditioners and can give a smooth, soft feeling to the hair shaft by helping the cuticle to lie flat on the surface of the hair.  You don't have to feel guilty for using a product containing a fatty alcohol as long as you are happy with the results, and your hair looks and feels healthy.
