Benefits Of DIY Deep Conditioning Hair Balm

This deep conditioning hair balm is made with super effective oils and butter which makes hair soft, moisturized, and frizzy-less. Let’s take a look at what are the benefits of ingredients used in hair balm and how they can provide nourishment to your hair.

BTMS – 50

BTMS – 50 is a plant-based emulsifier that is derived from natural oil called rapeseed oil. It is also a conditioning agent that conditions hair like no other emulsifier available. This is the best emulsifier for making hair care products. It also helps to thicken the product while giving a conditioning effect on the hair.

Cetyl Alcohol

Cetyl alcohol is derived from vegetable oils, which are used as a thickener in creams and lotions. It has mild emollient and moisturizing properties without the feeling of tackiness. It also makes hair conditioner products more slippery and easy to spread.

Note: It does not contain any kind of alcohol.


Beeswax attracts moisture and allows your hair to absorb essential water molecules, keeping your hair hydrated. It helps to smooth down the flyaways and keeps hair manageable.

Shea Butter

Shea butter is rich in different types of fatty acids and they are great for hair products to coat, condition, and protect the hair shaft. It is rich in vitamin A and E that makes it a superfood for dry and damaged hair. It is also great for dry, itchy, and irritated scalp. It moisturizes and conditions the scalp and makes it healthy for hair growth.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants and provides essential nutrients to your hair. Vitamin E and Vitamin K are found in coconut oil to help repair and build healthy tissues. When you apply coconut oil to the scalp and hair, it reduces inflammation and repairs damages done to hairs by chemical-filled hair products.

Argan Oil

Argan oil is known for its moisturizing and healing properties. It helps to repair dry, frizzy hair and conditions damaged hair deeply. Due to its high content of vitamin E, it nourishes the scalp and hair. It is a very light oil that gets easily absorbed by the skin without any greasy effect.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil has moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties. It is rich in vitamin E which helps to nourish hair strands. It moisturizes hair deeply without making hair greasy. It gets absorbed by the skin easily and makes hair soft and manageable.
