Default Honey in your hair during the Summer?

I hope this doesn't come off as a silly question. (If it does, oh well lol) I put honey inside of my shea whip and I was just wondering if this is a bad idea in Summer because of bees. I don't put a lot in it, but bees already have a tendency to follow me around and I don't want to give them another excuse. Has anyone had problems with bees when using honey in their hair? Am I just being paranoid in advance?

lol girl I don't think it's a "silly" question cuz I certainly don't know the answer. But it is a funny question cuz I never thought about it.

its a known fact,bees are mobilizing to reclaim their honey..I sometimes run in a state park, where, you are not allowed to disturb the natural residents. They like to fly in a swarm(not huge one ,like Ive seen flying down the road(guess looking to relocate) maybe groups of about 40, keep your arms down ,move easily through (DONT SWAT OR SUDDEN CRAZY MOVEMENTS, because you never know which ones have been africanized, and they get very aggressive,and will attack and sting.) anyway,they always just bounced right off me , no stings. I braught some ladies from the gym once,though, to get them outside, and one korean lady ,with very thick, ,pouffy, and I suspect very floral smelling hairspray ,started swatting,and rubbing her hair around, ,it pushed them in further, and she got a few stings on her head.She went back to aerobics, never came outside again.Just a little bee story.When you mix honey with anything(I put it in my flax gel.)The consistancy changes, nothing sticky, or crystalline,which is what it looks like, on the honeycombs.I beleive the bees are more interested in all things floral, sometimes water, and when camping, when you break out anything to grill. So far,IMHO, not, honey., honey watch out for the ants though!(joke)

Actually, I remember reading somewhere a girl wrote that a bird flew right towards her hair while she was in the garden with a hair mask she had made of different fruits.

So, not at all a silly question

However, I don't think in small quantities mixed with shea butter it would be a problem.

LOL, thank you very much ladies! I won't be removing it from my recipe I just had to know because I'm newer to the natural movement.

So are you using just natural honey out the food section? Now this is a silly question but i'm curious I would love to know for my own sake. I'm considering using it.

My friend had the same problem. She also had the most beautiful dark, thick eyelashes. There is a positive and negative to everything. When she was younger, she just used a Remington trimmer, like the kind a guy would use for a goatie. When it was short it looked like less. Now, she has it waxed. The trimmer seems like a good way to reduce the look without making a dramatic change.
