Hello Everyone! As promised, I tried the Honey Deep Conditioner recipe, and I’m pleased to say that it’s great! It was easy to make, easy to apply, easy to wash out, and left my hair feeling so soft and fluffy!! I used the same recipe that I posted here, but I added a little more honey (I didn’t measure, I just squeezed some into the bowl), and grapeseed oil. I was worried that the extra honey would make the mixture sticky and hard to apply, or hard to wash out, but it didn’t. It was still very easy to work through my hair.
I made the mixture with some conditioner I had lying around (I’m sure any conditioner would work), added the honey and oil, and worked it through my washed hair in four sections. After I saturated each section with conditioner, I twisted the sections and rolled them into bantu knots. Then I covered my head with a shower cap (ok, it was a Kroger bag, don’t judge me.)and a towel. now, the PLAN was to leave the mix on for maybe 40 minutes, but I got lazy and ended up sleeping with it on my hair. In the morning, I rinsed it out and had soft, beautiful hair! Here are some pictures.
I will definitely be using this mix again! It’s so quick, easy, and inexpensive! I would highly recommend this to someone who wants to try something that isn’t too involved, and doesn’t require any exotic ingredients. Try it out and let me know what you think!
Have any of you used honey in a mixture (or by itself) on your hair? What were your thoughts?
Hello everyone!! I’ve been thinking about using honey on my hair as a conditioner for a while, but I was having trouble convincing myself to use groceries as a hair treatment (We dont waste food over here. Lol!!). However, I’ve heard so many good things about it, I decided I will try it!!
Honey is beneficial to hair because it is a natural humectant, meaning it attracts and holds moisture. In addition to that, honey contains iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, zinc, and B vitamins!! PERFECT! Honey can be mixed with olive oil, and used as a conditioning treatment by itself, or mixed into your existing conditioner! I think I’ll try adding honey to a regular conditioner for my first try.
Honey Conditioning Treatment:
1/2 cup conditioner
1/4 cup honey
1 Tablespoon Almond oil (this will probably be grapeseed, since thats what I have.)
We’ll see how this works!! I’ll update you all with pictures soon!
Have you all ever used honey as a conditioner? Which recipes work best for you?
