Honey and olive oil?
 
Have you had luck with using a honey and olive oil treatment for your hair? Mine became a greasy mess that took much too long to get out. :(

Peace

I never used Honey and olive oil, but I use honey mixed with shea butter and coconut oil and my hair isn't left feeling greasy. Maybe try honey is a different formula, that may not make your hair as greasy.

I never use it straight up. I always mix it with one of my conditioners.. it makes it creamier! & makes a mediocre conditioner awesome!

Honey and olive oil as a treatment never did me any good either. My hair was greasy, greasy, greasy, even after rinsing out very well. It didn't even get any softer.

If I ever want to add an oil to my hair, it has to be mixed with something creamy.

Honey and OO is one of my HG deep treatments. I have to do it at least once a week. By I have a lot of thick hair and it can handle a lot of OO. Every hair has its own preferences so you may change OO with a lighter oil or play with the quantity. A little bit of OO goes a long way for most types of hair. But it's very very good for your hair, I'd say give it another shot.

@generosityt I totally agree, some products work differently on peoples hair. Like this one girl can't use coconut oil on her hair because it makes her hair smell sour. But I can use coconut oil on my hair and it makes my hair feel soft and moisturized. Trying to find the perfect products for you hair is trail and error, some things will work and others wont. But it is good to know what your hair likes and what it doesn't like. I just suggest experimenting with different things and see what things things you hair does like.

I love doing honey and olive oil treatments as a pre-poo. It makes my hair feel soft no matter what shampoo I use.

I always added honey and olive oil to my cheap conditoner for cowashes. In the winter I just use a bit of Olive oil on my scalp.

i add honey into the conditioner i put in my hands, i doubt i could do that eery day with a bottle of olive oil (i'd get funny looks from my parents)

You could take a small plastic bottle (from Walmart or Target for about $1) and put some conditioner in there. Then add a little honey (and whatever other oils you want). That way you're only experimenting with small amounts of stuff.

I squeeze all of the conditioner into a bigger bottle and then I squeeze in some honey (about 2-4 tbsps) and some evoo (about 2-3 tbsps) and then shake it all up until its mixed up really good. With the suave coconut I will squeeze a regular sized 16 oz bottle into a family sized bottle and then add the honey and evoo. The suave coconut will turn a tan color when completely mixed due to the honey. Hope that helps!

Those of you adding the honey and olive oil to your condishes, is this just for cowashes and/or rinse outs or are y'all adding them to leave ins?

What worked for me
 
I've done the honey and olive oil treatment and didn't really like it. It didn't seem to do anything BUT when i mixed honey with a bit of olive oil in my conditioner and let is sit a while (about an hour) deep conditioning it-it was GREAT. It left my hair soft and just wonderful.

If honey is in my cowash conditioner I only leave it in during the winter. In the summer I dont like to use honey in my leave in because I dont want to attract all types of bugs. I live in the dirty south. LOL!!

This is what I do

The closest I come to using straight is in my spritz but I use glycerin and not honey in that. My spritz is water, glycerin, and a touch of olive oil.

I do this with mediocre DTs. I rarely add anything to my cowashes.

I mixed honey, EVOO, and my suave coconut conditioner today. First I cowashed then I put the mixture in my hair and left it in while I washed myself, my face, and shaved so probably about 10-15 minutes. My hair was dry and crunchy this morning, but it has been saved! I have defined, soft, shiny ringlets right now :) I think my hair has been craving moisture lately... and probably protein too. Eek!

I never use olive oil, but I do use coconut oil, honey, a little argan and jojoba mixed with Jessicurl WDT, and sit under the steamer for 1 hour...simply amazing!
