What Should You Know about Hair Balm?

Write for Health&Life Magazine and Website

Hair balm and conditioners are used primarily to moisturize your hair and make it easier to comb. They also protect it, make it shiny, and reduce the risk of static electricity. Usually, conditioner contains various silicone polymers to increase shine and moisture in the hair, positive polymers such as quad nitrogen compounds, which work to reduce static electricity, as well as other ingredients that enhance absorption, activate viscosity, balance pH levels and keep the conditioner from going off.
But the problem is that these polymers are toxic, and can be absorbed through your scalp.

Are There More Toxins in Your Hair Balm Than in Your Food?

You may think that because your skin seems impermeable, your body is safe from absorbing many of the things you touch, unlike when you eat them. But that isn’t the case. In fact, when you eat toxic substances (for example pesticide residues, or chemical additives like aspartame or MSG), the enzymes in your saliva and stomach get to work help your body get rid of them. These toxins are passed through your liver and kidneys, which in turn neutralize and eliminate them before they reach the rest of your body. But when toxins are absorbed through your skin, they bypass the liver and enter the bloodstream directly.
You should think about the following before you use hair conditioner: you are soaking 20 blood vessels, 650 sweat glands and 1000 nerve endings in toxins.
