Default I used honey yesterday...

...and didn't notice any change, except for the fact that my curls were slightly looser.

I mixed 10% honey + 90% conditioner. Is that enough?

When I use Honey I use a pea sized blob in each plamful of my Rinse out. It adds shine and makes my hair bouncier and clumpier.

DEL2C is a good resource for more Honey info.

Honey is one of my favorite things to YAK about!!! LOVE the stuff, in the humidity only. It's DISASTROUS in the cold weather, sadly.....

Depending on what you are trying to achieve, is it shine? Conditioning or defintion? The best for shine and definition is a honey rinse. I assume your hair is short since you're a guy. Start with 1/4 teaspoon to 1c of warm water pour it on slowly and brush it through or rake it. DO NOT RINSE out. The amt you're using in your condish you'll have to play with. I was using about 1teaspoon in a dime size of condish.

I normally use 20% honey and 80% conditioner, or sometimes even 50%. But that's for a DT.
I never used it as a rinse.

So you don't use it in the cold? What are the disastrous symptoms? This is my first curly really cold winter coming up.

Oh it's not pretty at ALL. Stringy, flat, no definition with the Honey rinse. POOFY flat when I use it in my condish. I miss honey because it guaranteed me good hair days, now with the colder air it's a constant gamble! I haven't had good 2nd day in weeks......

tried another experiment today that I posted in the KCCC for long hair thread.

I use it in the cold months and my hair loves it, so it depends on the hair! I get lovely shine and less frizz. I use a honey rinse.

I recently started using honey in my 2nd cowash, about 50/50 and my hair loves it!
And I don't quite rinse all of it out. My hair soaks it up like a sponge.
