Honey is a natural humectant (a substance that promotes moisture retention). Add it to a conditioner or mix it with oils and other substances to enhance your conditioning process. If you do not know where to start, here are some recipes you can try:
1. Budget Blend
Thoroughly stir the honey and coconut oil together and apply to hair. Cover with a shower cap and leave on hair for at least 30 minutes. (The shower cap will create a warm environment for the mixture to melt into your strands.) Rinse.
3. Avocado Conditioner
Cut up the avocado, mash with a mixing spoon, and then add the honey and olive oil. Use a hand blender to blend all the ingredients thoroughly (so that no avocado bits remain). Apply to hair and cover with a shower cap. Leave on hair for at least 30 minutes. Rinse.
3. Egg Conditioner
Thoroughly stir the egg, olive oil, and honey together. Apply to hair and cover with a shower cap. Leave on hair for at least 30 minutes. Rinse with cool water. (Do not sit under a hooded dryer and do not rinse with hot water, as these actions might cook the egg into your hair.)
