I see the ingredient "alcohol" in products all the time. Does it damage the hair?


Cetyl or Stearyl Alcohol are the most common and they actually act to soften the hair and make it more manageable.

Isopropyl alcohol is used in hairsprays and other products to keep them liquid and aid in the dispersement of the product.

Isopropyl alcohol evaporates very quickly and is not on the hair long enough to cause any damage.
