Back before all things were made of silicone and derivatives, I had a few hair loves I’ll always remember!
Wella Balsam Conditioner, and Tame Clean Rinse.
I’m not sure about Tame, but Wella was full of Balsam Wax.
Balsam comes from Populus balsamifera, commonly called balsam poplar tree.
Back in the day, this was a somewhat lightweight wax in hair conditioners and shampoos, and probably a bit was in car wax. Not sure about that.
What I am sure about is that it was the ONLY thing that made my hair SHINE, and feel soft. I loved it.
UNFORTUNATELY, its waxy balm, which comes from the buds of the tree, would build up on the hair.
That was not so bad for me, as my hair, left on its own would expand throughout the day as it absorbed humidity and the curls/waves would explode out of bounds!
About that same time, manufacturers were getting their repeat sales fine tuned. They realized that many of us HAD to shampoo daily to get some of that wax off.
What began happening for me and many others was that our natural oils were making our hair an absolute grease pit.
Because our natural sebum is excreted to “heal” our scalp and hair, and it naturally will travel about a 1/2 inch per day. This is always a good thing, and if you don’t have a good amount of natural sebum, there are remedies for that…. ( more later..)
The old wives’ tales of brushing your hair 100 strokes before bed each night was to distribute that very tiny bit of sebum all the way to the ends of your hair to heal, shine and keep split ends from happening.
BUT… with a layer of Balsam Wax, the natural sebum would SLIDE down your strands like a greased pig on a hot day! With the Balsam already heavy, hair would look as if you had mopped the cast iron skillet of bacon drippings by the end of the day.
So, though it sold more shampoo, Balsam wax had to be retired because hair just looked dirty too quickly, and for those with fine hair, it was nice for the first few applications, but went flatter than wet tissue.
As much as I missed Balsam and still love the fragrance, we had to find answers for hair that were natural, like Balsam, yet worked better than Balsam for all types and textures of hair.
We did it.

Fine hair? Tinted? Indescribable damage?
If you have found yourself on the “TRY ANYTHING” wheel, it may be that silicone and synthetic products just can’t quite cover up the damage that has accumulated coupled with hormonal influences on the hair’s natural processes. As Belegenza begins to purify your hair from these slick cover-ups, the true damage may be revealed and for the first few applications, your hair may tangle, feel dry or more brittle. This is temporary, as the micro-conditioning agents make their way INTO the damage sites. Keep going. It’s temporary, and you’ll be glad you did! Not only that, we’re here to assist you through the process. You can always start the conversation with “Alan-bot” who should have already popped up to help!
