DIY Honey Conditioner: You Get More Shine with Honey

Step by step guide to DIY Honey Conditioner

I was a spoiled little girl growing up, the worst kind: a daddy’s girl. In many ways I still am, but that’s another story. Anyway, I used to throw tantrums when I didn’t get what I wanted, and my mom would always say “You get more bees with honey than you do with vinegar!” Who hasn’t heard that one? My dear mother, never one to reinvent the wheel. So, today I’m here to tell you that this saying holds very true when it comes to gorgeous hair.  With honey you can have all you ever wanted from you hair with shine, body, and moisture.


What You’ll Need

Shower cap

This spa grade shower cap helps give an excellent deep conditioning!  Using your own body heat, it creates an environment similar to a hooded dryer for maximum penetration.  I like to use disposable shower caps for conditioners, as they are affordable and you don’t have to worry about getting them dirty!

I prefer to use raw alfalfa honey because the texture makes for an amazing hair mask! Any honey will work well.

Essential oil of choice

If your hair is oily, you should probably skip this step.  My hair is typically dry, so I include it.  I love using coconut oil because it solidifies below 75 degrees.  Kept in a cool room, it becomes semi-solid, and this thickens the hair mask and keeps it from running. Coconut oil also has countless benefits for hair health!

If your hair is oily, yogurt will work beautifully as a substitute for the essential oil.  Try to use one that has as little sweetener or additives as possible.


How to Mix

You want to use a 2:1 ratio of honey to the other ingredients.  The exact amount will vary by hair length and thickness, but half a cup of honey is usually a good amount to start with.

Sweet Talk Your Hair

Apply to the hair and keep under the shower cap for at least thirty minutes.  If you end up using raw alfafa honey you will need to rinse very carefully to make sure you get all of it out! I like to co-wash (lightly wash with conditioner) to make sure everything gets out.  When you have finished rinsing, dry and style as usual! My hair was literally glowing from within.
