Question About Honey

Does honey lighten hair when mixed with a conditioner and rinsed out? I'm tempted to try this for the moisture and less frizz but I don't want to change the color of my naturally red hair. Thanks in advance!

My experience is that honey helps moisturize, and closes the cuticle, which results in shinier hair that looks lighter because it's reflecting more light–temporarily.

When I have used honey, my borderline dark blonde/light brown hair looked more blonde. If I didn't use honey again the next day, my hair appeared slightly darker, back to the "is it dark blonde or light brown?" shade.

The sugars in honey probably also help clean the hair too, again leading to more color becoming visible.

The results vary by individual. Honey contains a small amount of peroxide, (or contains on enzyme that produces peroxide depending on what you read) which can lighten hair. I think this would be less noticeable in a rinse out than a leave in.

I use honey almost everytime I condition my hair and I have noticed my hair is lighter. But I also have started to use less heavy products which made my hair appeared darker, so I'm not sure which has had the most effect.
