Unless it is isopropyl alcohol (rubbing), it is more than likely a fatty alcohol like cetearyl alcohol, which is GOOD for your hair:
MorrocainOil claims their product doesn't have alcohol in it though.
Agreed...this used to confuse the heck out of me, until a learned a little bit about some of these ingredients.
Cetearyl Alcohol: this is NOT an ethanol-related product; it is a FAT and is a moisturizer
Cetyl Alcohol: this is NOT an ethanol-related product; it is a FAT and is a moisturizer
An emollient and emulsifier. The term alcohol here is a real disservice to this ingredient as it is really a fat substance. Produced from Palm Oil usually, but it is also found in Coconut and other vegetable oils (it can be made synthetically too). Considered by some sources to be non-comedogenic, it is a moisturizer (not at all a drying alcohol).
