If you are looking to add moisture and manageability to your hair, try honey! Its cheap, effective and can really improve the condition of your hair over time. Honey is a natural humectant, which means it attracts and holds on to water molecules, making a great treatment for dry, damaged hair. It is best to use a good quality of honey. The best time to stock up on honey is during the spring and summer. The honey with the least quality is that which is gathered in the winter.These are hair moisturizing recipes that are simple, natural, and beneficial for ALL hair.These recipes will add moisture, sheen, and softness to your hair.

Deep Conditioning
Add a tablespoon of honey and castor oil to your conditioner, cover hair with a plastic cap or wrap hair in a towel,let penetrate for 20-30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Despite its sticky texture, the honey treatment will rinse easily from the hair, as long as you are using equal parts of honey and oil.

Pre – Shampoo Treatment
1 Tablespoon Honey
1/2 Teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Cup warm water

Mix ingredients. Distribute evenly all over the hair (I add the mixture to a spray bottle and mist the hair). Apply plastic cap for 15-20 minutes. Rinse well. Then, shampoo, condition and style. Your hair should feel softer and more manageable.

Lemon & Honey Rinse
2 Teaspoons Honey
1/4 Cup Lemon juice
4 Cups Warm water

Mix ingredients together. shampoo as usual. Apply mixture thoroughly through hair. Do NOT rinse.

Honey Rinse
1 Teaspoon Honey
4 Cups Warm water
Mix the ingredients. Shampoo as usual. Apply mixture thoroughly through hair. Do NOT rinse.

Note: Honey can lighten the hair over time. If you would like to darken your hair, substitute molasses ( Blackstrap) for honey.

Recipes with perishable ingredients may require refrigeration since they do not contain preservatives. These recipes are quick to make and will save you time and money. As with ANY recipe, you may have to play with the ingredients a little bit to suit you.
