Since going no ‘poo last year, my hair has changed a lot. It’s cleaner and for longer periods of time, it feels softer, and it’s so much curlier. But there are still days when my hair needs a little extra something – time to pull out the Natural Beauty Remedies 101!
During the summer months I was able to air dry, but as this winter has been quite nippy to say the least, the hair dryer has really been getting a workout, giving my hair a little extra frizz. I started looking for natural hair conditioning ideas. Lately I’ve been relying on honey, and I’ve got to say it’s now one of my all-time favorite conditioners!
After washing my hair as usual, I apply about a tablespoon of honey to my hair and I work it in well with my fingers. I allow it to remain there for a few minutes, then I rinse thoroughly (easy since honey is water soluble), and style as usual. The results is soft, shiny hair. It doesn’t weigh my hair down like most deep conditioners, and it doesn’t lessen the curl either, so I’m very happy. And all the honey that gets washed out of my hair in the shower softens my skin too! Sometimes I use it as a facial mask while waiting for the honey to condition my hiar.
If you’d like to try honey as a conditioner, come back here and leave me a comment letting us all know how it worked for you. Or email me at themommyspot (at) gmail (dot) com. I’d love to hear how honey works as a natural beauty remedy for your specific hair type.
