I have been faithfully using honey in my conditioner and as a styling product, since starting CG. It used to lighten my hair quite a bit. I have recently been doing a lot of oiling with coconut oil and also trimming a little myself and snipping off some split ends when I see them. My hair doesn't seem as light as the honey used to make it. My question is does the honey lighten your damaged hair more than healthy hair? I am wondering if my hair seems darker now because the damaged ends soaked up more of the honey making them lighter and that now that I have gotten rid of some damage, it doesn't lighten as much.

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
