Why You Should Wash Your Hair With Honey


#1. Strengthens Hair

Honey has the ability to heal damaged hair, therefore it comes as no surprise that washing your hair with honey can strengthen it all the from the root to tip. Honey reinforces the hair follicle making it stronger and healthier.

#2. Eliminates Frizz

Because of its nourishing and moisturizing properties, honey can greatly reduce frizz to the point of eliminating it.

#3. Adds Shine

Stop buying expensive, chemically-laden products to add shine to your hair – honey already does that for you! Because it’s so good at removing dirt, debris, and strengthening hair, honey will also add a ton of shine to even the most dull of hairs.

#4. Softens

It comes as no surprise that honey will also soften your hair. So if you’ve been dying it and applying a lot of heat, honey can reverse that damage and bring it back to its natural, soft state.

#5. Healthy Scalp

If you have a dry or itchy scalp, honey can cure that also all while promoting a healthy scalp. A healthy scalp equals healthy grow! Honey can encourage hair growth because it treats problems at the scalp.
