Honey with what products?

I was reading over a few of the forums and noticed that many curlies and waives use honey mixed with different products (I noticed mainly with conditioners) and gels. I went out and bought honey today but realized I'm not exactly sure how to use it. If anyone uses honey (especially anyone with similar hair properties to mine), could you list what you use it with, how you use it, how much you use, etc? TIA :-)

I have pretty similar properties. I like honey mixed in my rinse out conditioner (I use it 50/50), or mixed in my DT or PT.

I LOVE HONEY WITH CONDITIONER. It makes my hair so soft and shiny!! I also like to mix a few drops of it with a curl creme so I can get soft, pretty curls with great hold. I am obsessed!

I've used honey mixed with conditioner, sometimes I measure sometimes I just give the bottle a good squeeze into a small glass (like the tiny OJ glasses restaurants will give you or smaller) and fill 3/4 full of my conditioner. It's also great for homemade hair treatments.

Honey can also be added to FSG but I found it gave me too much crunch but I think I added to much.

Honey can also be used to lighten your hair if mixed with water and let to sit on your hair for a length of time but it takes many many applications to see any lightening for most people.

I am terrified to try honey...I just think about how much I hate the way honey feels on my hands. I'd rather have the honey already in the product as an ingredient. I've done evoo and egg in my hair, but that's about as exciting as it gets for me.

Ditto on the honey in the conditioner, curl cream and FSG. I'll add about a tsp to my FSG when I make it. If I'm mixing it with conditioner or curl cream, it's just a drop for me. I'll put a dollop of conditioner in my palm and add the honey. Mix it up well with my finger before I apply it to my hair. The better it's mixed, the less chance of getting that sticky feel.
3B, fine, normal to low porosity
Modified CG since June 2010
HGs: FSG, anything with glycerin, Tresemme Naturals conditioner, Curls Like Us cloths, satin pillowcases.
also, don't forget to put a few drops of honey in your hand, add a few drops of water, emulsify and spread on your freshly washed face. it makes your skin so soft.

Hair: 2a or 3a (not sure), very porous and fine as frog hair
Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny
Do you guys use honey in your conditoner every time you wash your hair or how often do you use it?

I've used it 3 times in a row so far (I only wash my hair 2, maaaaybe 3 times a week). It's safe to use as often as you want to

It took me ages to try adding honey into anything, but I adore it now
I put about a tablespoon into my own homemade FSG, but I make big batches and freeze it because I'm too lazy to make smaller batches and make it as I need it. I don't find it makes my hair crunchy at all; in fact, my hair has never been softer, more silky than when I started making and using FSG. I love it. I think the honey adds alot. That and the oils (I've tried coconut and grapeseed and both felt almost conditioning, along with the honey). My hair needs moisture, though.
I haven't tried putting honey into my conditioner, but mainly because I haven't felt like I needed to; I use FSG as my everyday styler now; my hair tolerates it really well and I haven't felt the need to alternate. So I think it gets enough honey that way

Honey is amazing!!!
That's me with FSG as my styler!!

3b. fine & thick, coarse, dry, medium porosity. Sucks up product and loves ACVs! FSG is my HG!

Currently using:
Low Poo: TJ's Refresh No Poo: CoWash w/VO-5; Sonoma Soap Company sulfate-free poo
RO: Yes to Cuc; SSC Lavender Condish; Sally GVP LI: Donna Marie Miracle D&C
Style: FSG w/Aussie Instant Freeze & CIAB
I add honey to my ACV rinses. LOVE IT, think I need to do it soon, now that I mention it!
