Default Why would you put ALCOHOL in a heat protectant?

IT's FLAMMABLE! gracious!

My no buy for May had me looking for some heat protectant in my bathroom. I came upon some Ellin Lavar Textures ThermMist. Lord knows why I bought this crap like 1.5 years ago, I was hair stupid.

Ingredients: water, SD alcohol 40-B (this is bascially the normal ethyl alcohol but with a little bit of benzoate), other stuff

Oh it has a warning label: Flammable, avoid fire, flame, heat (except styling appliances used as directed) and smoking during application until hair is fully dry.

why Ellin why

The alcohol is the propellant. Most of it vaporizes, especially when you don't it directly on your hair. This is one reason why most sprays with SD-alcohol as the propellant tell you to hold the can/bottle atleast 4-6 inches way from the heat. My heat protectant spray as it too.

Thanks Ms. Chemist, I knew that alcohol was volatile but still...
