Whilst my hair is in braids its very important that I keep it moisturized and dont just forget about my own hair underneath.  I was in town a few weeks ago with my friend and we picked up some glycerin from Boots (by the way it was 89p). Glycerin is a humectant which basically means that is attracts water from the air.  So as my hair is in braids it works really well as I can maintain moisture whilst my hair is still in braids.  I add a small amount of glycerin to my water bottle and top the rest up with water.  Im  not using glycerin on its own as it would be too heavy.
Glycerin should not be used in extreme weather conditions such as extreme coldness/humidity, because when there is no moisture in the air the glycerin will take moisture from the next available source your hair.  Defeating the purpose of the gylcerin.
