The Many Benefits Of Honey In Our Hair

benefits of honey in our hair

You don't often think of honey as a hair care product but surprisingly when added to your hair, honey can impart sheen and softness.

The most important property of honey with regards to hair is that it works as a natural humectant attracting moisture to otherwise dry strands. In this way it acts much the same as glycerine so will be particularly beneficial for those with natural hair living in humid climates.

Here are some benefits of honey with a couple recipes sprinkled in that can be very healthy for your hair.

When adding honey, don’t add too much because it will become too sticky and it can break your hair. Also rinse your mixture out your hair with warm water and let the water run down your hair first.

Stephanie Green

What and how do you mix it and apply to your hair..natural for two years

Carla A Taylor-Bennett

It helps but what no one is telling you is that it is very, very difficult to rinse out!

Joanie

I have used warmed Honey w/Olive/Amla/Coconut Oils as a pre-poo. I’s a little tricky to wash out. I use very warm water under the streaming shower, followed by Shea Moisture Co-Wash CC or As I Am Coconut Co-Wash. Provides great shine and moisture.
Manuka Honey (from New Zealand) is reported to be the best. It’s excellent for treating wound infections, protecting against damage caused by bacteria; anti-inflammatory that can reduce pain and stimulate production of cells that repair tissue damaged by infection. It’s widely marketed for use in these conditions:
Preventing and treating cancer; reducing high cholesterol; reducing systemic inflammation (Immune system disorder eg. Lupus)
Treating diabetes; eye, ear, and sinus infections’ and treating gastrointestinal problems.
With all these reported benefits, how can it be bad for your hair/scalp. Give it a try.

Brenda Brown

Interesting. I’ll try it.

Phoenix McGee

This is very informative but I don’t have self control around honey. Lol there are worse things you can eat!

Tye

Once a month I mix honey, olive oil, 1 egg, mayonnaise and conditioner and leave it on my hair under a plastic cap or bag for 1 hour. My hair loves it!
