There are two incredibly easy ways of maintaining hair in a good condition: oil hair treatment and balm hair treatment. Use of natural oils, numerous ways of application, diversity of products and surprisingly positive outcomes – this is how oil hair treatment can be described. But which adjectives could be used for defining balm hair treatment?
What is balm hair treatment all about?
Balm hair treatment is an alternative to oil hair treatment. It depends on applying balm to length of hair and scalp in order to supply hair with appropriate level of nourishment, moisturization and smoothing. Actually, balm hair treatment is conducted almost alike oil hair treatment, except a few differences, which are mentioned below.
What are the differences between oil and balm hair treatment?
Certainly, the basic difference that tells these two methods apart is the cosmetic applied for the procedure. As name speaks for itself, pure plant oils are used for oil hair treatment. The same concerns balm hair treatment, yet here we apply various balms and creams that are not necessarily designed for hair care. When it comes to the process of application, there are no major differences between these two methods.
What is the point in applying balm to hair?
We have got hair conditioners, hair masks, nourishing shampoos and oils which can be bought almost everywhere. So what is the point in applying balm to hair when we already have such immense diversity of other products? The truth is, even one of the cheapest hand cream can do miracles when applied to dry hair. Firstly, balm hair treatment’s asset is low price of creams and, technically, easier method of application. What is more, some creams are composed of so many beneficial substances that a regular oil does not own. The most important though, is the fact, that balm hair treatment works for some women better than ‘good old’ oil hair treatment.
Is balm hair treatment safe?
There are no contraindications connected with balm hair treatment. The issue here is that, when we decide to apply other balm then the one designed for hair care, we have to be absolutely positive that the substances included into its composition will not clump hair cuticles, blocking its penetrability.
What creams should be used for hair?
Primarily, balm used for the treatment has to be composed of the finest ingredients, such as natural oils, for example. It is also worth pointing out that active substances, such as vitamins and other plant extracts, are highly favourable. Basically, some women tend to use body balms for balm hair treatment. The truth is, such a cosmetic has to contain only the finest ingredients, so as not to clog hair cuticles. To conclude, there are no major contraindications against applying to hair balms that are designed for nourishing other body parts. Nevertheless, it is worth wondering, whether a decent hair balm’s action would produce better results or not.
