An hair product which is both a lipid ointment and a gel

+0
−1

Nivea have developed an hair product which I personally found very special among this filled-with-generic-stuff market of products, which is named in German "Creme-Gel":
I find Nivea's Creme-Gel special because it acts, at the start as a moisturizing cream and later hardens on the hair like any other hair gel, but it's a special somewhat "super critical" soft hardening very giving a natural wet look.

That said; I have the acknowledgement that creams and lipid ointments (ointments which are only comprised of fatty material/s) are two chemically distinct types of solutions (I would define a cream is a lipid ointment combined with creaming agents such as salts and/or polymers, which lipid ointments always lack).

Is an hair product which is both an oily ointment and a gel chemically feasible?

Someone cares to explain the down vote? JohnDoea‭ 15 days ago

Hello @elgonzo‭. I worked with the terminology I knew of Hebrew. Due to your comment I have updated the question with a clarification for my specific relation to ointments here. Please share with if such oily ointments / oily pastes can have gels combined in them, if it's still "obviously yes" and a nice example would help. Thanks. JohnDoea‭ 15 days ago

I could be wrong, but the question reads to me rather like "Company X has developed a product of type Y. Are products of type Y chemically feasible?". That would seem to make the answer rather self-evident; if products of type Y weren't chemically feasible, then company X would have been hard pressed to develop one, regardless of the values of X and Y respectively, would they not? (The question of whether it would be useful is a very different matter.) Canina‭ 14 days ago

@Canina I didn't mean to ask about product Y, rather on product Z. JohnDoea‭ 14 days ago
