Thx Sweetpea, hadn't heard of that. The bait disks use the same principle. I haven't had anymore ants either, but I can see how the sweet allure of Mr. Honeybear could be a problem.

Does it really lighten natural hair colour as posted on the main forum? Anyone used molasses instead?

Amneris-

Good questions! I am curious to know the answers too!

Orangebeach - how do you use honey as a facial scub? I think I would like to try this.

curlsallover, I have been using the OCM (Oil Cleansing Method) which I discovered here for about a month on a daily basis. After cleansing with the OCM, I simply slather my face and neck with honey and leave in while I shower. I do this about every 3rd day. I then rinse off with a wash cloth. Leaves my skin very soft. Have thought about adding a "scrubby" ingredient such as dry, blended up oatmeal, but haven't tried yet.

I hope you enjoy this,too.

Honey is the BEST! I had been feeling all alone with all the raves about honey, and it just wasn't working for me, when I tried a honey rinse without ANY styling products. It was amazing! I couldn't believe that a cup of honey water, which looks like nothing, can make my hair behave better than great huge globs of gel. It was well-defined, shiny and frizz-free - and looked totally natural (my real bare-nekked hair is scary).

My routine - CO wash, rinse, pour 1 teaspoon honey mixed with 1 cup of warm water over hair. Don't rinse out. use 2 t of Too-Shea or Elucence as a leave-in, and air-dry. That's it. To make things even simpler (and to not waste any honey), I'm going to try adding teeny amounts of honey to the Too-Shea instead of doing the rinse.

Plus, honey is cheap, easy to find, and you don't have to worry about bees adding silicones or other objectionable ingredients to their product.
You don't have to stand there in the store squinting to read the teeny-tiny ingredient list and wonder what all those chemicals are and what they will do to your hair. Also, I read on another thread, that honey is naturally anti-bacterial or anti-microbial or something like that, so it doesn't have to be refrigerated and won't spoil.


I love this stuff.

Can you mix honey with gel(aura-hypo)....or is it better to mix it with condish?

I love honey, too. The best results that I've had involved mixing about a tablespoon with a good conditioner and not rinsing it out. It enhances curl better than Mag. Sulfate, which I find drying.

The times that I've mixed it with gel didn't work out for a variety of reasons, so I'm sticking (ha, ha) to mixing it with the condish.

I haven't tried mixing honey with condish yet. Thanks for covering the how-tos. This will have to be a weekend experiment, in the near future.

honey is good, it does lighten my hair a bit, it works well as a leave in. Molasses is even better for me though, thank you ladies who posted about this. I mix it in w/ my conditioner and I swear it is making my hair darker? Which is good, my highlights were fading. Either the honey or molasses make my hair MUCH less frizzy, so that is awesome.

I did the honey rinse yesterday and had great results. I put the mixture in a spray bottle and saturated my hair and then left condish in with my aura gel. My co-workers even noticed a difference.

Yesterday I tried honey with the condish. It looked fine, my curls were shiny.

Today I did a DT of avocado, honey and olive oil and my hair turned a little crunchy but I donīt mind. With the humidity in the air, the crunchiness doesnīt stay long. I got curl definition and shine!

I am a 3b/c, and I love honey mixed with conditioner, all left in (so far I've tried it w/ Elucence and MOP).

I notice that it encourages my 3C curls rather than my 3b ones. I get these tight, shiny pencil-size spirals, hardly any frizz, and overall lower-volume. I think the lower-volume is bc/ it makes my curls more compact. I feel that it makes my hair appear darker, not lighter. The less frizz I have, the darker and shinier my hair looks. My favorite thing about honey is that my curls are still pretty "together" the next day. In my album, the 2nd one, I show 2nd-day honey/elucence. I liked it even better the first day.

Has anyone used honey and water to reactivate your curls for 2nd day hair? When I do the rinse I put the combo in a spray bottle....my hair gets more saturated this way, rather than pouring it over my head.

Awww, that's so sweet! :P I'm the same way with honey.. more often than not, honey just adds a little extra something that is just great for my hair! I've even branched out a little to experiment with honey's cousin, molasses, for the brunette color boosting effects. Molasses softens just as well but doesn't have the same yummy scent as honey so I can only use it with condish...

Ok, I decided to try CO/honey about 3 weeks ago. I LOVED IT!

I haven't done a DT for 6-8 weeks (I'm being lazy). I've been using Elucence for a few months and it is my HG. But lately my hair was a little dry, not bad, but I noticed. On a whim I thought I'd try the honey mixed in my CO. I did not rinse it all out. Then added just a drop of honey with a little tiny bit of Elucence again as a leave-in. My hair was soft with NO crunch/crispy feel like it is when dry. Day after day of using 60/40 CO/honey, I got soft hair. 2 days ago, I didn't use honey just to see if it REALLY made a difference. I got dry hair again. Then I noticed that my hair was a little lighter. Not good, as I color my hair and I don't want my color to leach out. I didn't know that honey can lighten. So looking here, I found some curlies use Molasses instead. I tried it yesterday.....again SOFT BOUNCY hair. I didn't care for the slight lingering smell of the molasses, but I can LIVE with it b/c of the results I get. I'm hooked. Honey/Molasses is my HG! I told my SIL about it and she tried it (she is a near straighty) and she LOVED it!
