Condition and make you hair shine, keeping your curls light, fluffy, and moisturized!


  • *1 tblsp of honey
  • *3 tblsp of extra virgin olive oil


Mix the ingedients into a bowl until they make a paste. Lightly shampoo and use a light condition if you need to detangle knots. Then, work the paste though your hair from roots to tips. Wrap up in plastic and leave it for 10-15 minutes. When time is up, rinse in the shower, never the bath, unless you want to get covered in oil.

Love this recipe! The only suggestion I would make to girls with fine hair (like me) would be to shampoo and condition as you would normally do AFTER the treatment since all that olive oil weighed my hair down big time after just rinsing. But after just one treatment my hair was smoother, shiner and softer than it's ever been! I could even run my fingers through it! Thank you so much for posting! This will definitely become apart of beauty regimen!

I used this recipe last night, only I did it as a pre poo. I added coconut oil to the olive oil and honey. my daughter's hair is so soft and moisturized. I hope this last a few days. this was my first time trying something like this in her hair.

This one is really easy and works great! You can tell the hear has drank up the oils and retained the moisture.. Left my curls feeling soft :)

I made this today and was really nervous! I was afraid I would wind up with greasy gross-looking hair! It worked really well, and my hair looks great! It was just kind of weird feeling in my hair. but I will use it again, and I'm always trying to find natural alternatives for products!

I used this recipe today and was impressed. However, I used light olive oil, as I don't like the smell of regular olive oil, and it worked well.
