I've used this recipe as is and on other occasions I've added a light conditioner (Tresseme Naturals). I don't find it necessary to heat the mixture in the microwave prior to applying because I always wear my HotHeads heat cap for at about 15 minutes or so. Very affordable and effective deep conditioner.

This is a really tricky but so rewarding recipe... My first attempt resulted in my hubbie and I spending an hour over hot water to try to get it all out. Just after words I had random bits of beautiful curls so I had to try again. This attempt I added a cup of conditioner to mix the melted honey into. Just to make it impossible to gunk up. So far it's been wonderful!

I'm just trying this now let see how it goes. How often do you need to do this a week or months ?

This was really helpful! It made my hair a lot shinier and less dry. I really liked it,and I'll be sure to use it again.

This recipe is awesome! My curls look amazing! I added vitamin E to it too but that's my only modification. :)

Great recipe! Did this today and modified some things, instead of using 1 tablespoons of honey and olive oil I used 2 tablespoons just to make sure it got everywhere, massaged everywhere. I'd recommend using a very hot (not scorching hot) towel and leave for a nice hour. And instead of just shampooing out, I mixed my coconut-hibiscus Shea moisture shampoo and conditioner together and then conditioned again. Left my hair awesome and soft, not to mention it's so easy to do. Give 4 out of 5 stars.

I use this recipe but with coconut oil instead of the olive oil. Omgosh the smell is amazing and when i rinse it out my hair is buttery soft til my next wash..i recommend it for anyone trying to combat dryness.

I did this the other night. I think I microwaved it too long. My hair was very soft afterwards. I may not microwave it next time.

I use this receipe, but I also add conditioner to the mix. Leave it on for 45-1 hour in a shower cap, rinse well and style as usual. Love it!!!

This worked like a charm! I used coconut oil rather than olive (because I had it on hand and it smells amazing). I washed with sulphate-free shampoo and added honey to my conditioner as well. My hair had gotten dry and gone literally stick-straight after a trip to Phoenix and I was panicked my curls were gone forever. I came out of the shower and could see the curls were starting to develop again and then I did some extra stuff (plopping, new products etc.) and I'm back in business! I'll use this as a go-to recipe from now on. Thanks for adding it!

I've tried this once before, but overdid it on the ingredients (my fault). Word of caution: rinse out your shower very well. I ended up with hungry ants the next day :(

This works pretty well. It leaves my hair shiny, soft and gives bounce to my curls!
