Hair Tip #21

Honey has many amazing properties and applications for both skin and hair.

  • It adds shine, softens and smoothes the hair as it conditions while also improving the health of the hair follicles and scalp.
  • Honey is a humectant, which means that it promotes moisture retention (the opposite of a desiccant), as well as an emollient, which means that it works to make things (like your skin and hair!) soft and smooth.
  • Honey is rich in vitamins and minerals and recent studies have suggested that it also contains antibacterial properties, which help keep your scalp healthy. In short, honey has got it going on!
