Default Honey is so wonderul....

How awesome is this stuff?!

My hair loves honey. I find myself co-washing and then using as much honey as I would with my rinse out and keeping that in for a while, THEN adding a touch of my rinse out and then acutally rinsing out everything. It does take some time to mix with the water and soften my hair. It gets a lot softer the longer I leave it in.

My curls are even more awesome when I do this. Can honey replace my conditioner?! LOL

Sorry if this has been answered, but thats a lot of pages to read through!

I saw that honey lightens hair, and molasses darkens hair. I dont really want my color to change but I guess if I had to pick Id rather it went darker. What are the pros/cons to honey or molasses? And those of you who have used molasses how do you use it? Is honey or molasses better than the other?

I want to stop by the store on my lunch break today and try one out tonight, but not sure which way to go. Please help!

Sorry, paint_horse_milo, I can't help you, but I wanna know the answer too! Someone? Anyone?

My question is- to people who have added honey/molasses to FSG, how much do you put in?

Ugh so far NOT liking the results of the honey treatment. Have used with my wash out conditioner. It leaves my hair frizzy and reduces clumps (something I strive for!) also, in combination with my gel, it leaves my hair really wonky.

so does putting the honey in water cause it to not be sticky? I'm just not seeing how there isn't any sticky business going on.

You need to melt it in hot water... I do this in the shower and just pour. I've never had a sticky mess.

These tips are great, can't wait to try honey on my hair! I always imagined it'd turn out sticky...

Default Honey + Water= styling?

Sorry if this has been asked already, but i was wondering if you mix some honey in some hot water and spray it into damp hair, will it help give curls some hold or will it make them sticky and (LOL) attract bugs.

I used to use honey diluted in warm water overnight as a moisturizing treatment and that always made my ahir better when curly. Never knewn you could use it as a leave in--this morning I did about 5 drops total all left in, and while my hair isn't it's curliest, it's the best it's ever been'

I've been adding about a pea size of honey to my gels for that bit of extra hold and shine and I'm loving the results!! I'm going to start using it again on occasion with my rinse out conditioner as well. My hair Loves honey!!

If someone walked into my bathroom they would think I'm baking a cake! The only thing missing is the flour. I just read CG about two weeks ago, so I'm still in the experimentation stage of finding what my hair likes and doesn't like. I have coconut oil, honey, ACV, and will probably add olive oil to my growing collection.

Yes, Love honey! I could feel the difference immediately! I've never thought about using it as a styling product though, wouldn't that be really sticky?

I wash my hair every 3-4 days. Each morning I spritz it with water and rake fingers through it but now I've read that water can be drying. Would adding a bit of honey with the water be less drying?

Yesterday, I put a baby pea sized blob of honey in my leave-in. I must say I like the results. It did feel a bit producty, but my hair curled better and had a bit more volume. My husband thought I had really worked on my hair when he saw it. I do like my hair soft and am usually playing with it, but I love the way it looked. Today, second day hair is softer and doesn't feel so producty. When I first added the honey to my condish, it felt very slippy and moisturizing. As I said, it did dry a bit producty feeling, but I think the results are worth it.

I still use a dab of honey for extra hold with most of my gels and love the results.

I have to admit, I didn't notice much of difference when I used honey in my rinse-out and leave-in

Default just a thought.

You can also use cinnamon along doors and window sills to keep ants out of your house.
Do bees bother you when using the honey in a leave-in co?

Is honey good for year-round, or is it advised to put it away during the winter?
