BENEFITS OF USING HONEY...


Hey ladies, I looooove using honey in my hair. I have just recently began using honey, mixed with my co- washes ( vo5 moisture milks strawberries & cream) love that , mixed with a bit of baking soda . Thanks to Sunshine of http://naturalhairnaturalproducts.blogspot.com/. Where You can find her wonderful recipe for the use of honey. I tried using honey for both my co- washes , as well as using honey for deep conditioning.
They are both a winner. Honey is now a must have staple in my regimen. Let me tell you it is GREAT!. It provides such great moisture. So this has prompted me to do a post on the beautiful usage of Honey for our AuNaturale's ( smiles).

Hair loss and hair conditions are treatable without the use of chemicals. By combining natural ingredients, you can maintain beauty and health of your hair and scalp. Honey has all natural restorative powers and can be used often.


Significance



Honey has been used throughout history for maladies of many types and is used in a variety of ways. It has healing effects on wounds and infections, and is also considered an antioxidant. Honey is an effective treatment for burns, but when it comes to your hair, it is very restorative in nature. As a natural healthy means of hair restoration, honey can be used for thinning or falling-out hair, baldness and for adding shine to dull hair.


Benefits



To prevent hair loss or baldness mix 1 tsp. of honey with 1 tsp. of olive oil and 2 tsp. of water to make a paste. Massage this mixture onto the areas needing it the most (for baldness it would go on those thinned or hairless spots). This is best done before bedtime and the mixture will be left on for the night. Wash your hair as usual in the morning and continue to treat your hair with this mixture regularly.


Another honey mixture for these same issues would be a paste consisting of heated olive oil, 1 tbsp. of honey and 1 tsp. of cinnamon. Apply this to your scalp and leave it on for 5 to 15 minutes before washing your hair.


Effects



Using honey as a hair conditioner will increase the health of your hair follicles and your scalp at the same time. If your hair is on the oily side, decrease the olive oil to 1/4 cup when making the following mixture. Mix 1 cup of honey and 1/2 cup of olive oil. Massage the mixture onto the scalp and let it rest for a half hour before washing your hair as usual.



Benefits



If your hair lacks shine or luster, a mixture of 2 tbps. of honey and 2 cups of warm water can help return the natural shine and will add health to your hair. After combining the solution, shake it thoroughly in a spray bottle with a wide nozzle and spray the mixture onto your hair. Brush it into your hair and let it dry or you can blow dry it.




Considerations



It is best to use a good quality of honey. The best time to stock up on honey is during the spring and summer. The honey with the least quality is that which is gathered in the winter. Purchasing honey from a bee keeper is another way to make sure the honey is fresh.
ENJOY!!!!

Wow, I had no idea honey could go in hair. I thought it would be too hard to wash out or something. The only thinks Ive tried as a kid or my mom tired on me was the mayo and eggs treatment and my head stank for awhile but it was shiny. Lol

No way! I can't imagine doing this because it just seems really sticky, but I guess the olive oil must help. Thanks for the tip!
