Honey has some amazing health benefits, but did you know that it’s also great for your hair? You don't think of honey being used in hair products, but when used on your hair, honey can provide great sheen and softness as well as some other amazing benefits. Honey helps keeps the hair moisturized, fights frizz, and also helps prevent split ends. Remember that using honey alone could be damaging to hair, so try adding it to your deep conditioner, co-wash, and shampoo. Here are a few benefits of honey for natural hair.
Honey Is a Humectant
Honey attracts and helps maintain moisture in the hair by helping to hold onto water molecules in the air. With curly hair, we’re constantly trying to moisturize our hair and fight dry hair. Honey helps to replenish moisture that is lost and also helps to fuse vitamins and minerals into our hair strands, keeping our hair healthy and strong.
Honey Is an Emollient
Emollients are amazing at smoothing and softening hair. Honey helps to smooth the outer cuticle layer of the hair, which helps the hair look and appear shinier.
Honey Is Anti-Bacterial
Honey is also fantastic for treating scalp issues. Honey has enzymatic and also antioxidant properties that have been known to aid in the treatment of dry and itchy scalp, dandruff, and even dermatitis. Honey also exfoliates the scalp and helps fight irritation.
Honey Helps Prevent Split Ends
Nobody likes split ends. A good remedy is to apply some honey mixed with our Mint Almond Oil to your ends. This will help to prevent split ends and keep the ends of your hair strong.
Honey Helps Soften Hair
Are you looking to soften your hair? Honey is used in many hair products to help moisturize and draw water into the hair shaft. It also helps restore moisture, and because honey is an emollient, it helps to soften the hair.
