Our hair is the first to react to the negative impact of the environment - scorching sun, hard water, stress, poor nutrition. Therefore, the use of balms is an important stage of hair care.

Types of balms for hair

All balsams are divided into three large groups:

1. usual balms;

2. rinse aid;

3. air conditioners.

4. Shade balms

Balms do not contain harmful chemical additives. The elements entering into their composition penetrate into the scales of the hair and smooth its surface.

Conditioners help the hair to dry faster, reduce the electrization of the hair. But they can not be used at all times, because the substances contained in them accumulate in the hair and weight it.

Rinsers remove from the hair the remains of shampoo, restore the pH balance of the head. Sometimes they can contain antistatics. They give hair softness and shine , facilitate combing. These remedies are suitable for healthy hair.

There are also balms for giving hair volume, for dyed and weakened hair. But special attention should be paid to what type of hair they are suitable for.

Means for dry hair contain moisturizing ingredients.

With oily hair, you can generally abandon the use of balm, or use light sprays.

Damaged hair requires balms that solve a specific problem (for example, hair loss).
