Olive Oil and Honey Hair treatment...

Susie99...I believe you wrote something about how the best conditioning thing you've done for your hair is put olive oil and honey on it.
Can you give out the "recipe" here? How much oil to how much honey? How long do you leave it on your hair?

Thanks!
Diana

Re: Olive Oil and Honey Hair treatment...

I found the recipe on one of your old posts, Susie 99. For those of you who are wondering what it is, here's what she wrote:

1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup honey

Apply to warm, damp hair and cover with a shower cap and a towel. Let sit on your hair for an hour and wash out. You may have to wash it twice to get out all the excess oil.

From what I understand, this treatment works wonders for restoring moisture and shine to tired, stressed and dry hair.

I'm going to try it this weekend and I'll let you all know how it works!

Re: Olive Oil and Honey Hair treatment...

Nicola 76,

I tried the olive oil/honey treatment like I said I would, and it was okay. It didn't perform as drastically as I thought/hoped it would, but my hair IS softer and bit more shiney since doing it. I think it just needs to be done on a regular basis to maintain the shine and softness. I will do it again in about a week or so and see if it gets even better. I have to keep in mind that NOTHING is a miricle cure and that nothing will probably give me the drastic results I was hoping for. These days, I think we all want to see drastic change because we see it on tv etc. But this is a nice, natural remedy which uses no chemicals and only natural ingredients so it is invariably going to be better for your hair than any commercially made product will be.

One thing, it didn't stay in my hair as bad as I thought it would, which was nice. I expected to have to wash it four or five times in a row to get all the oil out, but it came out sqeeky clean with only two suddsing sessions, so that was nice.

Try it yourself and let us know how it goes!
Diana

Re: Olive Oil and Honey Hair treatment...

Yes! I also do this with a deep conditioning treatment during the week. Once to twice a week depending on the condition of my hair until I see improvements then I usually cut down to once a week.
I usually try to leave it in overnight or all day if I'm at home for the day, but you can wash it out sooner than that.

I just put this in my daughter's hair tonight for the first time, I won't see the results until tomorrow as I braided her hair while damp and sent her off to bed.

Of course I try to keep as much moisture in my hair afterwards.
Some products I like are:
Nexxus Humectress as a leave in
Coconut oil as a leave in, in damp hair.
Jojoba oil (moisturizes)on damp or dry hair, great hair glosser!
100% Aloe Vera as a gel
African Gold coconut leave in conditioner as a gloss or lightly over damp hair to reduce frizz.

I never blow dry, curl my hair and I now protect the length of my hair before I shampoo by applying conditioner to the length of the hair and the shampoo on the scalp while conditioner is still in the hair.
I rinse both shampoo & conditioner out at the same time, then do another quick conditioning.
I wash the length about once a week.

Remember moisture, moisture, moisture will make the hair pliable, stretchable again.

HTH sorry so long!
Sue

Re: Olive Oil and Honey Hair treatment...

My daughter's results are better than mine! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">
She has a slight wave that can be made to look curly and can get fairly puffy.
Well her hair is just so soft, puffiness is gone and she has lots of shine.
I also put a deep conditioner after her hot oil treatment.
