The hair is really amazing.
It can be considered alive as long as it is in our head and technically dead when it is outside our head. Some people are born with naturally amazing hair, others have to work a little harder to achieve the same results. However, even if you are not blessed with naturally perfect hair, you can still achieve amazing results with the right hair care products and a little bit of effort. After all, beautiful hair is healthy hair.
We’ll give some hair-saving tips in this post to help you revitalize and refresh your hair and obtain that beautiful look you deserve.
Why honey, and why honey mixed with other stuff?
Honey can help with dry or damaged hair. Honey is a natural humectant that attracts moisture. It’s packed with antioxidants and nutrients to nourish the live part of your hair, encouraging new hair development. It also requires a medium to assist distribute it, otherwise, you’ll get just a gloopy mess. The recipes contain several other natural components that aid in hair restoration from the scalp up by combining moisturizing and cleaning properties into one product.
1. Just Honey
This honey and water cocktail is simple to make, and requires no extra ingredients!
- Fresh water
- 1/4 cup of organic honey
Directions: Mix the honey into enough fresh water to make it spreadable. Add water tablespoon by tablespoon to make the mixture easy to use and spread. You may add more honey if necessary based on how much hair you have. Apply the mixture and leave it for half an hour. At the end wash and rinse with warm water.
2. Honey and olive oil
Olive oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory characteristics, which can help to prevent split ends and dryness in your hair. After just a few applications, olive oil can have a significant impact on moisture in your hair. It’s also very beneficial to the skin of your head and penetrates deeply into the root of the hair removing dirt, sweat, product buildup, as well as any other residues from previous conditioning treatments. It also aids in the smoothing and coating of dry and damaged hair shafts.
- half cup of honey
- a quarter cup of olive oil
Directions: Add the ingredients to a mixing cup and mix thoroughly, heating if necessary. Apply to hair as needed. Wash it.
3. Honey and apple vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is used because it leaves hair with a glossy sheen and serves as a natural conditioning agent.
- a quarter cup of organic honey
- 10 tbsp of apple vinegar
Directions: After combining the components, use as you would a shampoo. Leave it for 15 minutes or so. Wash and rinse with warm water.
4. Honey and coconut oil
Just like olive oil, coconut oil is one of the most popular oils used to heal and preserve hair. It is a very good moisturizer too. From my subjective point of view, It seems to add a little bit more shine. It’s high in nutrients, making it an essential component of hair treatments.
- a quarter cup of organic honey
- 3 tbsp of warmed coco oil
Directions: Mix the ingredients. Use the mixture on wet hair, just as putting a shampoo. Leave it for 10 minutes and rinse with warm water after that.
Much of what you’ll find in shops is simply various concentrations of the same substance with different fragrances. Honey gives you complete control over your label and product, which is something we all appreciate. Personally, I enjoy the effects of honey. When it comes to my hair, I think of it as being rather healthy overall, but with the dry winter months ahead, a little more moisture and conditioning are always appreciated.
Additional tips for using honey in your hair
- Like everything in life, use only organic honey. If the honey is crystalized just warm it and that’s all. Do not buy nor use ultra-pasteurized clear stuff that can be found in the supermarkets.
- If you don’t want to make up a separate treatment, try mixing honey into your regular shampoo or conditioner.
- Use mild shampoos and conditioners, and avoid harsh treatments like hair straightening (which damages your hair.) Natural is beautiful!
- Recognize the sort of hair you have. Applying olive oil and honey to limp, thin, greasy hair is generally ineffective at preventing it from becoming oily.
- There is no need to apply these medications more than once or twice a week. A single or two applications per week should be enough.
- Remember – honey’s effects on damaged and dry hair won’t be immediate.
The key is to remember that hair is supposed to be fun. It’s a way to express our individuality and creativity. So instead of beating yourself up over a bad hair day, why not embrace it? After all, your imperfections are what make you unique.
