Plain glycerin from the chemist is excellent as a moisturizer for hair. I put it on the ends when my curly hair is wet and it’s fantastic. Keeps the curls from frizzing out. I use a few drops of aromatherapy oil as well.
Really really cheap in the brown chemists brand bottle.
I think the Dove oil is one of those products that’s really dependent on hair type, it works pretty well for me. But I agree it’s not a patch on MoroccanOil, and sadly never found anything that is, which is why I’m currently ekeing out a sample sized bottle!
