My understanding from somewhere on this website is that honey can gently lighten hair because it forms some sort of peroxide. However, that is also a little drying.

Do a search for honey Curl Chemist and I think you'll find the information. There is a curl chemist on board - I think her name is Tonya - she's great and she blogs about various hair things. Good luck with this.

I used honey once. I loved it - it helped my curls form great clumps but I was a little concerned that it might be drying. If you mix it with olive oil, that should take care of the drying issue. Could you please post your results? I'm interested.
