I love honey as my natural sweeter, as much as possible I try to stick to natural ingredients and products. Honey has lots of medicinal powers and is an antioxidant as well as antibacterial. So I decided to research if it works for the hair. Now a days I find myself sticking closer to natural ingredients, less toxic and chemicals on our body the better. There were several sites that shared how amazing honey is for the hair! This one shared a honey conditioner ingredient I am so excited to try!
Benefits of Honey:
Honey is safe for the hair: Chances are, if you can eat it, you can put it on your body. Honey contains vitamins, minerals, is antibacterial, acts as a humectant (attracts moisture), and has incredible healing properties. Many civilizations in the past and today use honey for many, many uses, and honey for hair is one of those uses. So, honey is definitely safe for the hair and has stood the test of time.
Honey is safe for the body: Today, many diseases are popping up at an alarming rate due to chemicals and other “crap” that is included in many cosmetics and medicines. As an example, fibroid tumors and other related hormone imbalances have reached epidemic proportions, due in whole or in part, to these chemicals.
Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and chemicals are absorbed through the skin. The skin does such an excellent job of absorbing things, that medicinal “patches” use this same principle. These patches are placed on the skin instead of the medicine taken orally or some other way. So whatever you put on your skin and scalp affects your entire body! But you need not worry with honey, it actually boosts the immune system and is used to treat all kinds of health problems – it has stood the test of time.
Honey Makes the Hair Healthy: Due to the many characteristics of honey, hair is actually nourished and enriched. It is food for hair. Keep reading and you’ll find a recipe of mine that will have your hair looking fabulous in no time.
