Default Honey Rinse Question

Hey! I posted this originally in 3a discussion but I realized I should have probably posted it here instead.

Hey curlies!

I have a honey rinse question.

I read on a few posts that a table spoon of honey mixed with a cup of water is a good rinse for frizz and shine. At which step of the washing part do you put that? Before your finally conditioner?

Also, another question related to lemon. Putting some lemon in the conditioner helps keep your hair shafts closed, and therefore also helps with frizz and humiditiy... correct? Does lemon lighten hair under heat (if I diffuse my hair) or just under the sun? I read somewhere that it needs UV rays to lighten the hair.

I call upon you as experts since I am still new... I don't want my hair to lighten.

Thanks!!

I just mix a little honey with my conditioner everyday.

I have heard you can mix honey with water and do a rinse, but you should use distilled water....

You can do honey rinses at any point during your routine as long as it works out for you. However, I believe most of us do it at the end of our shower, after we've washed out all the conditioner. Pour it on your hair and don't rinse (or rinse a little, leaving some on). A lot of curlies also mix a drop or two of honey with each load of conditioner they put on their hair.

This is the way I do it. Also, there's no need for the water to be distilled... I just use regular tap water.

You are supposed to do honey rinses after everything else (as they aren't supposed to be rinsed out). The honey to water ratio depends on how thick and long your hair is. Since I've had my hair cut (from BSL to mid-neck) I've found that half a teaspoon is all I need too a cup of water.

You don't need to use distilled water. Tap water works perfectly fine.

It won't lighten your hair unless you let it sit in the water for about an hour (and even then it is so subtle that you won't notice).

Thank you for all your replies! I will try it this weekend for sure. I find that since I have cut all cones and sulfates from my routine my hair has been frizzy. Not a lot but it's still firzzy. This never used to happen before. Maybe I am still adjusting? I am hoping the honey will help.

I will be trying this. Does the honey rinse at the very end of rinsing increase curls? That is my hope at least!!! I added honey & epsom to FSG and it helped enhance curls some.
