Product Review: Qhemet Biologics Olive and Honey Hydrating Balm

I was not very surprised at how this product worked. Qhemet Biologics Olive & Honey Hydrating Balm is suppose to soften and hydrate very dry hair. I already know that my hair loves creams as moisturizers so a balm was a little new to me. I had been visiting the qhemetbiologics.com site for about two years contemplating ordering it but each time I went with the Amla & Olive Heavy Cream and more recently the Burdock Root Butter Cream which is better suited to my hair type in warmer weather. The balm was sticky and a little hard to work with because of its honey like consistency. It has a faint scent that reminded me of lemon and honey tea which I liked. As a moisturizer it didn't add the moisture I wanted and was difficult for my hair to absorb. This product is more suited as a styling aide or sealant for my hair. Will I repurchase? Probably not, it is a great quality product but I have all the styling aides I need and as a moisturizer my hair doesn't agree with it.

Performance: The product did not adversely affect my hair, my hair just couldn't absorb it, I would use this as a styling aide or sealant but I don't need it for that purpose. 1/2

Pricing: 16.00 USD for 16 oz, worth the money if your hair flourishes with balms since it has superior ingredients to most products on the market. 2/2

Ingredients: Pure Olive (Olea Europa) Oil, Virgin Sesame (Sesamum Indicum) Oil, Pure Grapeseed (Vitis Vinifera) Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Vegetable Emulsifier, Pure Wildflower Honey, MSM (Methysulfonylmethane), Vitamin E (Mixed Tocopherols), Fragrance.

* Nourishing, all natural ingredients. 1/1

Qhemet Biologics Olive & Honey Hydrating Balm 4/5

I mixed the hydrating balm with the heavy cream and love it...

I've never used the hydrating balm by itself because I don't think i'd like it.

The trick is to use it only when your hair is still wet/damp. (ie. freshly washed hair). It works like a charm that way in sealing in the moisture without getting sticky.
