Since it’s September, and September is National Honey Month, we thought we’d offer up some fun facts and tips about this fantastic natural ingredient.

Honey is a natural humectant:

This means it attracts and holds on to water molecules. This makes honey a great treatment for dry, damaged hair. Honey can be added to cleansers, conditioners, deep conditioners and oils. Or you can look for products that contain honey. Honey for your hair works best combined with other ingredients.
