Honey Hair Conditioner Formula

Honey Hair Conditioner Formula

Honey is made by bees from the nectar of flowering plants and trees. It is high in vitamins and minerals, and has wonderful benefits for the skin and hair. Honey is a good humectant and emollient, serving as a good moisturizer and conditioner.

Take out some time to try this easy honey hair conditioner. The benefits will really show:

Directions for using honey in hair.

Add a teaspoon of honey to a teaspoon of shampoo, or use honey by itself as a wonderful hair pack and conditioner.

Work 1/2 cup through your hair (using more or less according to your hair length).

Put a plastic shower cap or bag over the hair for 20 to 30 minutes to let your body heat optimize the conditioning benefit of the honey, then shampoo and rinse thoroughly.

Thank you

Interesting but I would rather use organic local raw honey for the delights of cuisine rather than put it on my hair, but then, Care2 does have something for everyone. If someone wants to use honey on their hair or skin, why would that become a Capital Letter Offence? (Offense for the American members, I can be 'bilingual.') Could I offend someone by using a )' but then, punctuation offences get risky. The grammar police can get rather rowdy at times. They might smother me in honey for grammar offences.

Wendy A, do you really expect Care2 to be consistent? There are a variety of authors on Care2 with a number of viewpoints. They simply can't cater to only one viewpoint or they would lose members. There have to be articles for everyone. Most people are not vegan (three percent of the population of the entire world where honey is not eaten or used.) Vegetarians and omnivores do eat and use honey for many things. It is certainly better for the bees to use local, organic raw honey and avoid the big mega producers. Some of us do eat meat, prepare organic quinoa, eat eggs, avoid meat and eggs, some of us are on raw foods only while others on this site would not know what to do with a raw artichoke if it walked up and shook their hand. Live and let live. Maybe I will try this anyway...why not? A walk on the Wild Side won't hurt me on occasion.

This is one thing I think about from time to time. Thanks.

This is what a lot of contemporary science and scientists do. They take an age old idea, and vali…

Being thankful for everything you receive that is positive everyday seems only natural really. I gue…
