There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

I live in Denmark, and I have a conditioner with isopropyl alcohol in it. Can I use it as a combing conditioner?
I'm really happy to hear from you. I am wanting to try to get more products I recommend that are available over seas too. To answer your question, the isopropyl alcohol is drying to be in a combing conditioner, but if it would be okay as a rinsing conditioner (so long as it's near the bottom of your ingredients list). This is because a little bit of isopropyl alcohol won't have a chance to dry out your hair, since rinsing conditioners are only used on wet hair and then rinsed out before the alcohol can dry it out. But for combing conditioners, the ingredients will stay in your hair until you wash your hair again. So because of this, I'm much more cautious about what's in them.
