Healthy Hair Benefits of Honey


Not only is honey rich in vitamins and minerals it's also an excellent humectant (attracts and holds on to water molecules) and emollient. Therefore it serves as a wonderful, all natural moisturizer and conditioner making it a great treatment for dry and/or damaged hair.  Honey lends the hair extra softness and sheen just by applying it to damp hair and letting it sit for 15 to 20 minutes.  After shampooing or co-washing your hair should feel softer and more manageable.

Honey Deep Conditioner
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Olive Oil, Sweet Almond (or the oil of your choice)
1-1 1/2 cup Conditioner (depends on the length and volume of your hair)

Mix together and apply to hair from root to end. Put on plastic cap/bag and let sit for 20-30 minutes. Rinse out thoroughly with warm water.  You can adjust the amount of the ingredients depending on the length and volume of your hair. Remember to use equal parts honey and oil.

NOTE: Over time honey can lighten the hair.  If you're looking to darken your hair then use molasses in place of honey.
