I know that using honey is beneficial to hair for shine, moisture and softness. But I want to focus on the hair lightening aspect. I just recently decided that I would start adding hair rinses/semi-permanent hair coloring to my regimen. I remember my mom always added this to our hair care when she took care of it, and my hair was always past my shoulders. She said it helped in many different ways (i.e, softness, moisture, and etc) along with just making it look healthier. I recently purchased some color showers which I heard here, is supposed to be comparable to the Sebastian's Clourshines/Laminates Line, but more affordable. I am gonna put it in, for my next relaxer, but I planned on doing a ton, of honey treatments before then so I can lighten my hair, at least enough for the colors to show. If it worked I was gonna purchase other colors and just do what I feel. If not, I figured I would just do cheaper rinses. I mean what's the use if it doesn't show... So, can anyone attest to honey lightening their hair? If so how long did it take/ how many treatments were needed? How long did you leave it on and what was your method. And if you could be so kind, can you share your hair pictures. All will be greatly appreciated.
