Honey and Olive Oil Moisture Madness Conditioner
Main Moisturizing Ingredient: While honey may not be great to use on hair by itself, it has some super moisturizing power when mixed with other natural ingredients. Honey is a natural humectant, which means that it attracts and locks in moisture. In addition to its moisturizing properties, honey acts as a natural anti-bacterial and can help heal the scalp if it’s sensitive. Honey also controls dandruff and makes the hair shiny.
