Honey Treatments for Dry and Damaged Hair

Our Hair is pretty incredible and contributes to our beauty, reason why dry and damaged hair is an unwanted factor.

The hair is technically dead when it is outside of our scalp.

Today many people apply so many products into their hair, apply high levels of heat to it, just to shape it a certain way, achieve a certain look, without second thoughts about what we’re actually doing to our hair.

In my opinion, a beautiful hair is a healthy hair, and healthy hair is not as a result of what you find on the shelves in stores, but rather in your own kitchen.

If you have dry or damaged hair, honey can help a dry or damaged hair. A natural humectant and also honey attracts moisture.

It’s also full of anti-oxidants and nutrients to feed hair follicles that house the live part of the hair, encouraging hair growth.

That being said, it also needs a medium to help spread it around, otherwise, you can end up with just a sticky mess, so the recipes include other natural ingredients that help you restore dry hair to a health and luster, from the scalp up.

Coconut oil, like olive oil, aids in moisturizing hair and hair roots. It seems to add a little bit more sparkle (my opinion) and is a little lighter as well.

Honey is packed with a lot of nutrients that make it an automatic go-to ingredient in hair treatments.

You will need 1/4 cup of honey and 3 tablespoons of warmed coconut oil.

Procedures

bring coconut oil and honey together and mix thoroughly. Work into damp hair as you would shampoo and allow it sit for 10 minutes, and then wash with warm water.

Much of what we obtain in stores is just different ratios of basically the same stuff with different fragrances.

With honey, you can tell what you’re getting every time, and in my opinion, I love the results.

I like to think of the human hair as fairly healthy overall, but with the dry winter months coming up, a small extra moisture and conditioning are always wanted.

Tips for Using Honey in Your Hair

  • Mostly make use of raw organic honey. If you have to warm it a little bit that’s fine, but the ultra-pasteurized clear stuff bought at the supermarket really doesn’t have many benefits.
  • Try putting some honey to your regular shampoo or conditioner if you don’t feel like creating up a separate treatment.
  • Avoid harsh products and heat treatment like straightening your hair every day. Natural hair is beautiful!
  • Be conscious of the type of hair that you have. Applying olive oil and honey to limp, thin, hair that is prone to getting oily will most likely just make it greasier and heavier.
  • There’s no need to use these treatments daily. Once or twice a week should be sufficient.
  • Be patient. Application of honey to damaged and dry hair is not going restore it to perfect condition right away.
