Ingredient tidbit

Today I asked the Naturally Curly forum about Enjoy hair gel. As usual, I got some excellent information so I thought I'd share it here.

The ingredients are:
Water (Aqua). PVP, Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Oleth-20, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxymethlgylcinate, Fragrance, Disodium EDTA, Benzophenone-4

According to laurabeth33 -- who tests products -- she says: "gels with triethanolamine (a pH alkalyne adjuster) as one of the first few ingredients can make hair more dry so a more acid leave-in underneath may encourage better (less drying) results."

I have asked her for examples of "acidic" leave-ins so I'll post that here when she responds.
