Honey Keeps Your Hair Cleaner??!

I e-mailed Kelly Foreman, the owner of Mop Top, with some product questions and happened to mention that I found her gel to be very curl enhancing and was assuming that it was the aloe. She said it did contribute to the curl enhancement but a lot of it comes from the sea botanicals and honey. That didn't surprise me too much, but she also told me that honey will keep your hair cleaner longer. I didn't know that. Learn something new everyday!

Thought I'd throw that out here just in case I'm not the only one who didn't know that.

Honey is a natural antibacterial/antiseptic agent. It's a natural burn and minor cut/scrape remedy also. It's better than butter for a burn because it's 80% water so it hydrates while sealing the damaged skin cells.
It is the only food substance known that does not spoil. It may get crystalline but if you simply reheat it, it return to its liquid state.

I'm sitting here reading this with honey and conditioner in my hair as we speak. Sweet! Good to know.

I love honey...too eat and for hair. Honey candy is amazing. If you can find it, it has a peculiar smell but is quite tasty.

I use honey alot. i buy the big bottles at costco. better value and lasts longer for me. i use it for a honey rinse or in my condish daily, love how it makes my hair clump better. my lil 2 yr old nephew had something going on with his lips (dryness) and i use a dab of honey on his lips , took it right away , plus he liked the taste. amazing honey is!

Interesting! It does make sense, given honey's antibacterial properties but I never thought about it. My husband once asked why I put honey in my hair and I told him it helped with frizz, definition, and moisture. Now I can add cleanliness to the list!

Hmm honey makes my hair frizzy and sort of dirty looking on the second day of using it. Maybe I'm using it wrong?

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

I've tried it a bunch of different ways, with no luck. It makes my hair stringy, frizzy, and completely gross.

I've never tried it straight from the bottle; only been in my hair if it's an ingredient in a product I'm using and I haven't had a problem with it that way. I'll have to try it sometime straight and see what it does to me.

How are you using this to make hair cleanser? The few times that I have used it it made my hair frizzy too.

If I use actually honey on my hair, it makes my hair frizzy as well. If I do a honey rinse, it works pretty well.

What do you do for a honey rinse?

mix a tablespoon or so of honey in with warm water so it dissolves, and then pour it over your hair as a final rinse.

hmmm...maybe I'll try this, because just plain honey in my hair in the shower was a disaster.

I don't know if I read it in this thread, or another one, but somebody posted that they added honey and olive oil to their conditioner.

Tonight I did a DT w/ Too Shea, honey, and olive oil. FANTASTIC! I love the way my curls formed, and no frizz! I may have to add honey to my condish more often! As long as it's being rinsed out, I think it works great.
