HONEY!

I haved tried honey every which way and every time I do, I get frizz. I can't figure this out because everyone says how frizzfree and shiny it makes their hair. I wish it would work for me

okay, i did the honey rinse today before my conditioner, and rinsed all of that stuff out. then instead of the dot of elucence with my 2 quarters elixir, i put a dot of honey in.
then i used angell and did my normal routine...while my hair was shiney, and my curls were soft, they fell out! i had wavy chunks. i can't figure out if this is because of
a. the honey
b. hair being too soft
c. too much elixir
d. angell

anyone have any ideas? i think i'll try the same thing tomorrow, but with 1 quarter elixir and see if that makes a difference...

My guess would be the elixir because I did almost this exact same routine thurs.night except that I didn't substitute honey for elucence with the elixir leave-in, and I applied about 4 blobs of angell. I just started using the elixir as a leave-in (about 3 times now and thanks to certain enablers on this board - you know who you are! ), and I've noticed how my hair has seemed a bit limp each time I've used it.
I didn't use Angell the first two times (used B&A, RR or something else instead) so I would count that out. I've been using the honey rinse or adding honey to the condish for quite a while now, so I would count that out as well (at least for mine). I really suspect it might be the Elixir, so maybe you don't know as much of that? Or perhaps the elucence does such a great job of conditioning on it's own, that the Elixir isn't necessary afterwards? Perhaps it adds too much conditioning?

I use honey just as a deep treatment. I take the same amount of honey and olive oil and then mix it in with my daily conditioner and then use this as a deep conditioner once a week. I rinse it out completely. I do this as the last step after shampoo and acv rinse too. Check out my www, it only has one picture (it's my first pic and I will add more later promise) but I owe my clumpy curls that day to this deep treatment! I like honey!

yeah, i was thinking that too, lush. it worked really well when i was washing my hair with shampoo...but now that i'm back to the creme of nature, i think my hair is SUPER soft. i'll try it with a lot less elixir then, and see if that works for me. i still haven't figured out the angell yet, or how to know when i'm using enough...but i know i haven't used too much yet, so that's good! hmm...
i guess today will be "play with my hair" day...
oh wait....what day isn't?!

today i did the same routine, with one blob of elixir, and more angell then i used before...i had no volume, and lots of frizz, with some curls mixed in...i think i'll try this honey thing mixed in my routine, but using my B&A gel...i wonder if that's my problem more then anything else...hmmm

Ditto the jessicurl. Cup, honey bear, under aloeba. Every day. When I travel, I sneak honey off of the breakfast buffet and use the coffee pot. Just bought squirt bottle from sallys for acv rinse, but don't know if it will work for honey (i swish with fingers to mix). Haven't tried it mixed with other stuff yet (CHICKEN)

The honey rinse suggested on the Jesssicurl site is fantastic. I am getting more curls and less frizz with it. I mix about 2 TBS. of honey in a large cup (16 oz. ) of water and pour over my head after using HCC. I let it sit on my hair while I do other shower stuff and then use Too Shea. I comb the Too Shea through and then rinse it off. Just one good rinse after the cond. My hair has been much better. Nice natural way to add moisture.

I generally add some to my DT once a week.

I have also tried adding a very small drop to gel and Boots. Works well but be careful. A little goes a long way! I prefer the rinse. It's pretty foolproof.

I still mix in some honey with my co's sometimes even though I do the honeyrinse everytime now, but I don't add it to my products anymore really, it just depends on the styling product. Some mix well with it, some don't. But it's a pretty good bet with the conditioners. cool.gif
