Overall, glycerine is great when applied to natural hair and can provide many benefits. However, there is one key fact you should remember when you use glycerine and two relatively minor ones.
Glycerine is affected by weather conditions especially heat and humidity so the results you get in summer may be different to those achieved during winter.
It is better to use glycerine when it is normal to mildly humid and when the temperature is quite warm not hot.
This is because when the weather is very dry there isn't enough water in the general environment for the glycerin in your hair to attract; it might compensate for this by actually taking much needed moisture out of your hair and therefore drying it out! If it is very humid, glycerine might attract so much water to your hair causing it to frizz!
Those are the key disadvantages of glycerine for hair application. Overall, keep in mind that spring and autumn are good months for glycerine, the heights of summer and winter are not.
