I am ashamed to say, that it has been a whole month of no interaction. But I come with wonderful news and lots of new topics and discussions and tips.
Let’s just start off the week with something sweet right? Honey…
You might be surprised that honey is highly beneficial to your hair. It is, sugar is too. But that is a top for another day.
- Honey is a natural emollient.
What is an emollient? An emollinet is an agent which seals moisture in your hair, keeping it conditioned. This sounds quite important already. This causes breakage to reduce, breakage is often a cause for slower hair growth.
- It has antioxidant properties;
Which prevents damage by keeping your scalp and hair healthy.
- Honey strengthens the hair follicles;
Strong hair follicles decrease curbing hair fall.
- Honey also has antibacterial and antiseptic qualities;
This prevents scalp infections and soothes issues like dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis.
- Honey cleans the hair follicles;
This process gets rid of impurities, dirty hair follicles that could be clogged could be a reason for hair loss.
- Stimulates hair re-growth from dormant follicles.
Honey Hair Mask
Now let me share with you an easy to do honey hair mask that can be done 2 to 4 times per month. You will need:
- Half cup of Honey
- 1/4th cup of Olive Oil
- 1/4th cup of Buttermilk (optional)
Mix the honey and olive oil and microwave the mix for 30 seconds. Once the mix is cooled, add the buttermilk and stir. Then apply the mix throughout your hair and leave it on for 30 minutes. The mix might drip, so wear a plastic cap or bag to prevent a mess. Wash out the mask with cool water and shampoo or co-wash and finish as you usually do.
Who new that just three ingredients could be so benefitial. Try it out and let me know how it goes. This could be used on all hair types, even chemically treated hair.
