How I Use Honey And Extra Virgin Olive Oil To Get My Hair Softer

  

 My hair is coated with honey only in this picture. My hair was a frizzing wreck before I applied the honey to it.

I added some extra virgin olive oil to the hair. I covered my hair with a plastic cap and wrapped it with a towel for about 45 minutes, and washed it with TREsemme moisture rich conditioner.

Without using any leave-in conditioner, I applied some Haitian black castor oil to my hair. I twisted it, and put it in a bun later. Leaving the honey on your hair for too long is not a good idea. Your hair may look lifeless if that happens. Putting too much honey is also a bad thing. Make sure you use the right amount of each ingredient.

DIY: How To Use Honey To Get Softer Hair


 Okay! I know I told you that I washed my hair yesterday, but something happened that pushed me to wash my hair again. What had happened was: I tried to define my curls using Krystal Eco Styler gel, but I did not like it. So I had to wash my hair again. Below is the product that I created. I hope it works for you, too.

You will need:

  • Honey
  • Any thick conditioner ( I used TREsemme moisture rich conditioner)
  • Plastic cap
  • Wide tooth comb 

Directions: 

  1. Apply the honey on dry hair
  2. Proceed with the conditioner
  3. Comb your hair though and braid it
  4. Cover your hair with the plastic cap and let it sit for 25 minutes
  5. Rinse your hair ( don’t use any shampoo) , let it dry, then condition and seal it as usual

This mixture will leave your hair very soft and manageable.

    What Is The Best Way To Apply Extra Virgin Coconut Oil To My Hair?

         There are different ways you can use coconut oil on your hair, but the best way to use it is to apply it to your hair, let it sit for 2 hours, or overnight, then wash it with shampoo and condition your hair as usual.

    How to apply it:

    1. Finger de-tangle your hair or use a wide tooth comb to get rid of knots.
    2. Apply the oil from roots to ends while massaging the scalp.
    3. Braid or twist the hair if it is long enough.
    4. Cover your head with a plastic cap and let it sit for two hours.
    5. Or, you can cover your head with a plastic cap, wrap it with a good scarf and let it sit overnight.
    6. Shampoo your hair, condition it (not deep condition), and moisturize your hair as usual.

         91% of your hair is protein, and coconut oil is known to reduce the loss of protein from the hair. Protein is what gives your hair strength. A regular coconut oil treatment can help the hair keep its natural protein. It can add shine to the hair, eliminate frizzes, moisturize it, and condition it as well.

         There are many other ways to use coconut oil, like the video above suggests, but the best way to use coconut oil is on dry hair (pre-wash) so the oil can easily penetrate the hair shaft. The best way for me may not be best way for you. I know women who mix the coconut oil with another oil because their scalp is sensitive to the oil.

    Other ways to use coconut oil on your hair:

    1. Apply it to your scalp before a scalp massage
    2. Add it to your deep conditioning treatment
    3. Add it to your regular conditioner to tame frizz
    4. Use it as a leave-in conditioner after shampooing.
    5. Use it as a sealer after moisturizing your ends
    6. Mix it with your everyday hair cream
    7. Mix it with your Shea butter for extra moisture
    8. Mix it with rose water, Aloe Vera juice, and use it as a spritz
    9. Add it to your homemade deep conditioner
    10. Add it to your homemade shampoo
    11. Use it as a hot oil treatment

    Is It Safe To Use Haitian or Jamaican Black Castor Oil On Children’s Hair?

    I know a lot of you might be wondering if it is safe to use Haitian or Jamaican black castor oil on your daughters’ hair. From personal experience I can say that it is safe to use it on your child’s hair.
         Castor oil is the only oil used on babies in Haiti. We use it to keep their hair soft after each wash.
    We also use it on their bodies when they have a fever. My daughter was born with multiple allergies. She is allergic to milk, eggs, fish, peanuts, and wheat, but she is not allergic to the oil at all.
    A few things you should know: 

    • Run a test before applying the oil on the child’s scalp, as it can make the scalp itchy.
    • Don’t use the oil more than 3 times a week.
    • Wash the child’s hair the next day to keep the scalp clean.
    • Stop using the product if you notice a rash on the scalp, or if the scalp starts bleeding.

    How to Use Castor Oil on Eyebrows

    Castor oil is a type of vegetable oil extracted from the leaves of the castor bean plant. The castor bean plant is a fast growing plant with clusters of red flowers. It produces the notoriously poisonous castor bean. Castor oil, however, is not dangerous and has various uses. Castor oil stimulates hair growth and is often used as a hair tonic to promote thicker, healthier hair. When used on the eyebrows, castor oil helps accelerate regrowth in eyebrows that have been over-plucked or waxed. It can also cause eyebrows to grow thicker and darker. Does this Spark an idea?                

    Things You’ll Need

    • Castor oil
    • Cotton swab
    • Cotton ball

    Instructions

      • 1
        Gently wash your eyebrows with a mild soap. Put a small dab of soap and water on a cotton ball and run it across each eyebrow. Pat the eyebrow dry with a sheet of facial tissue.
      • 2
        Dip one end of a cotton swab in castor oil. Tap the neck of the cotton swab against the sink one or two times to get rid of the extra oil.
      • 3
        Dab the cotton swab along your eyebrow, going in the direction of the hair.
      • 4
        Blot away excess castor oil with the dry end of the cotton swab.

    Tips & Warnings

    • Cover your pillows with old pillow covers to prevent the castor oil from ruining them.
    • Apply the castor oil at night and leave it on until you wake up the next morning for maximum results.
    • Castor oil may not work on eyebrows that are thin due to aging.

    How to Use Castor Oil on Relaxed Hair thumbnail
    Castor oil can bring back moisture to dry hair.
    Chemically straightened hair needs regular deep conditioning treatments to restore moisture and shine lost during the relaxing process. The essential fatty acids in castor oil condition your hair by making it more supple and lustrous after hot oil treatments. You can also use castor oil when you massage your scalp and on your ends to prevent breaking and splitting. The best time to do castor oil treatments is at night before bed, but you can also use a little castor oil in the morning to seal in moisture on wet or dry hair. Does this Spark an idea?

    Things You’ll Need

    • Castor oil
    • Small heat-safe container
    • Large heat-safe glass bowl
    • Silk scarf
    • Small glass container (optional)
    • Lavender essential oil
    • Hair moisturizer

    Instructions

      • 1
        Add 1 or 2 tbsp. of castor oil to a small heat-safe glass container. Place the container in a larger heat-safe bowl of hot water for five minutes to warm the oil. Divide your hair into four sections. Apply the oil along the length of your strands from the roots to the ends. Pile your hair on top of your head if it is long. Tie your hair in a silk scarf and allow the oil to penetrate overnight. Shampoo and condition hair in the morning.
      • 2
        Mix two or three drops of lavender essential oil with 2 or 3 tsp. of castor oil in a small glass container. Massage the warm oil into your scalp using the pads of your fingers. Apply gentle pressure to your scalp to promote stimulation. Cover your hair with a silk scarf. Repeat the process twice per week.
      • 3
        Pour approximately 1 tbsp. of castor oil into a small glass container. Apply a small amount of the oil approximately 1 inch at the ends of your hair. Tuck the oiled ends of your hair into a bun style to protect them. Repeat the process twice a week or as needed.
      • 4
        Work a cream or liquid moisturizer through your wet or dry hair. Pour three or four drops of castor oil into the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together, and then run them through your hair. Style your hair as desired.

    Tips & Warnings

    • You can warm castor oil for scalp massages and application to your ends if desired. If your hair is not long enough to make a bun, apply a little castor oil to your ends at night.
    • If pure castor oil is too thick for your scalp, blend it with light oils such as grapeseed or sunflower oil.
    • Carefully test warmed oil with a fingertip to make sure it’s not too hot for your skin.
    • Don’t use too much oil on your scalp or hair. Too much oil will weigh down your hair and cause scalp irritation.
    • Consult with a physician before using castor or essential oils if you are pregnant or nursing.
