I'm totally intrigued to try honey tonight, probably in my conditioner, but I'm wondering if I'd have better results mixing it with my co-wash or my rinse out conditioner? It'd be in my hair longer with the rinse out (I let that sit while I shave and soap up and stuff!) but almost everyone seems to be using the honey before the rinse out conditioner (either as a rinse or a co-wash) so I wasn't sure if there was a reason for that! Thanks!

I just got my hair colored. I want to try the honey trick, but a post towards the beginning of the thread makes me wonder if it's safe to use honey with fresh color. My new color is dark auburn with caramel highlights. She cut each individual curl, as well, and with the wash she gave me yesterday, it curled up really nicely. Any help is appreciated!
I used honey for many months for the purpose of lightening my hair color and I noticed my hair felt softer and shinier, it even grew longer!

I wouldn't recommend this if you have color treated hair as it might change the color.

Anyway I really love honey and highly recommend it! Also have fun experimenting with all the different types of honey available!
Do I put it on my scalp too? I'm gonna try it tonight!

Food makes me happy.
I have been using honey mixed in with whatever leave in I am using for a while now. I feel it gives my hair a lot of shine, enhances my curls, and maybe even boosts the hold of the curl (since I know that too much honey makes hair stiff and crunchy). I even got my sister hooked on honey. One day she had ran out of honey and said that she hated the way her hair came out.

I heard that if you heat honey, that it doesn't change your hair colour.
Why is that? And is it true? And if the heatened honey cools down, is it back changing colour?
I have colour treated hair and I have done 2 honey-oliveoil treats up till now and I like them.

Also, I am going to Spain for a couple of months next year, and honey sure is easy to find anywhere.
would love to try this idea! my dad and I put put honey into our protein shakes, so now time to try some in my hair....

quick question though plz!

-where do we buy the honey and what brand do you suggest? is this the same type of honey that we can eat???

1. Mix some honey and warm water and pour it into my hair after cleanse, don't rinse and add my RO which I leave in while I do my shower routine.

2. Mix honey, coconut oil, and cheap conditioner as a DT. I have trouble distributing products, so the conditioner it just to carry the honey and oil around.

Do I have to avoid honey in high dewpoints?

Does anyone know if water and honey go bad? And how long? Im thinking of making a spray and I don't wanna have to remake it everytime if I don't want to. So far, I heard it helps defining curls, providing moisture as a humectant, and can lighten hair. Which is all a plus for me.

Btw, for those who don't want the lightening effects, heat is supposed to prevent it. So you could probably just zap it in the microwave for like 30 seconds. Ta da! I don't want anyone to miss out.

I'm thinking of doing a 4:1 ratio of water:honey because I read that works the best for lightening and I might even add olive oil or a bit of cinnamon cuz I heard it helps. Cinnamon also has a nice smell in small quantities or I might just use olive oil as a sealer because I dont want to get my hair really oily. Or maybe just mix a lot of oil and use it as a deep treatment and finally start baggying.

Is there a way I can use honey without lightening my hair? I really want to use it but don't want it to change my hair's natural dark brown color. Will microwaving it beforehand stop it from lightening?
