How do you use honey to wash your hair?

I basically mix a little with oil or water in my hand and smooth it unto my hair. I let it sit for a minute and rinse. It makes my hair feel soft and moisturized during the day. I had to switch to doing that because the V05 I have was making my hair feel stripped. My Granny accidently bought the 50/50 instead of the moisturizing. My hair hates it.

I try to keep mine pretty simple
I pre-poo with AO GPB
wash with Giovanni SAS shampoo
then use AO HSR as a rinse out
rollerset and bun most of the week
I clarify 1x a month with Suave
I usually stretch my relaxer for 12 weeks

That sounds good Rosie. I may have to try it.

I'm a 4a/b natural. My hair ranges from nape length to APL.

Currently I don't really have a regimen. I water wash or cowash like every other day. Then I usually detangle with oil and conditioner, twist my hair, undo it the next day and bun it.

As soon as I get my weave I'll just be rinsing, spraying with moisturizer, and oiling my hair.

All natural!
Hair type: not sure see lil girl in avi---3c 4A/b? Fine ish strands

1.Shampoo with Keracare Hydrating detanling poo
2. Condition (rinse) with Keracare Humecto. If using Sabino Moisture block I tilt head back to load with water for a couple of seconds, step out of water stream, ring hair out.
3. Towel dry and
4.apply Sabino.

4. If not using SMB, I rinse fully (or deep condition), apply a leave in like Salerm 21 or Star Lacio Lacio, and
5. a con serum such as CHI or Fantasia.

6. I may apply BBD (Big Bad D) Glass to the edges, and ponytail to air dry.

Deep condition (with heat) every two weeks or when I can remember:
Keracare Moisture Conditioner (name might be off...it's for color treated hair) ORS replenishing conditioner. Once out from heat follow steps 4-6.

I have BKT QOD Gold applied to my hair; I will apply again in another few weeks to treat the newgrowth.

My hair is relaxed but I think, depending on how the next BKT application goes on the roots, I will be transitioning :) . Otherwise, I get a relaxer 4 times a year and get my trims then too.

My hair is 3b and 3" long since bc 12.16.08. I use the pre poo oil to set as a oil treament in between mega tek. I use mix chicks which works wonders on my hair. I co wash everyday and use shampoo every 3-5 days. I have found that less is best since that fall out when using powder shampoo on chemical treated hair which I should not have had in the first place.

I handle my hair on an "as needed" basis. It doesn't make sense to me to follow a strict schedule, because my hair doesn't need different things on a set schedule.

I wash when it needs it, with something moisturizing. I deep condition after I'm done with Organics Olive OIl DC or Joico Moisture Recovery. If my hair needs protein (not often), I throw Baba de Caracol on my hair for a *split* second. That conditioner is NO JOKE.

I air dry and flat iron, roller set and blow out my roots, bun, or do braid outs or twist outs depending on my mood. I usually use unmixed natural oils on my hair (coconut, castor, jojoba), but right now I'm trying to use up oil mixtures I bought, and it's taking forever. I've been using Vatika oil, Shescentit's Jehan Preshampoo Oil, Cocasta Oil, and Kemi Oyl for 8-12 months now!!!!! I apply the oils to wet hair and let it dry as my hair dried however I'm styling it.

I leave my hair alone for the most part (low mani - no combing, brushing, etc. - just finger combing) until wash day.

I wash my hair as I feel it needs it. Sometimes it can be daily or every other day for a period, and sometimes it may be 2 weeks.

Hair Type: primarily 4a fine, thin natural

My longest length of hair is hovering between APL and collarbone (back). My shortest length is below my chin (the front)

Saturdays (or whatever day during the weekend):
I prepoo with an oil/ayurveda mix (unless I'm hennaing), co-wash, detangle, henna (if the time is right), and deep condition for about an hour. Then, I moisturize with KCKT and seal with EVOO or coconut oil. Then, I bun my hair up.

I co-wash with an ayurveda/conditioner mix. I try to fit in another short deep condition in. Otherwise, I just moisturize, seal, and bun it back up.

Very simple. Doesn't change much unless I'm in twists (like right now). I henna once every 2-3 wks.

Cowash Daily with V05 Moisture Milk.
Towel dry. Finger comb in long aid curl activator gel.
Rinse hair thoroughly with warm water.
Apply megatek and aloe vera mix (I read about here of course). Cover hair with bonnet and leave on until morning cowash.

This is easy, not very time consuming, and it allows me to say,"Detangle:perplexed (??) I wonder what they mean by that?" :lachen::lachen:

So, I've been stalking1QTpie's fokti this evening and I realize that I've been downright LAZY about my hair lately.:nono::nono::nono: I'm sooo ashamed and I am officially adopting the prepoo, poo, dc, and bentonite clay mask routines in her three youtube videos. I didn't mean to be so lazy (honestly, I didn't- shoot, I thought I was KISSng in my own way :lachen::blush:), but I just didn't want to spend my whole paycheck trying to get to BSL (big Sigh). Fortunately for me, 1QTPie's methods just might be feasible for my budget. :clapping:

I'm 4a/3c with thick hair density, but fine individual hair strands( most noticeable when my hair is straighten). My hair length is touching the top of my bra strap now. My hair is texlaxed, but I'm transitioning back to natural.

I cowash everyday during the week and do braid outs.

On the weekend, beginning on Saturday, I pre-poo with Alma/Vatika oil overnight
I do an Ayurvedic tea rinse with either Brahmi and Bhringraj powder or Alma, Shikikai, Maka, and Brahmi powders.
I rinse out with a cheapie conditioner
I DC with either a protein or moisturizing deep conditioner
After wards I apply my homemade leave-in (condition, water and oil mix)
I then braid my hair up and in the morning I will take them down and put my hair into a messy bun with a head band.

Hair type: mainly 4a, some 4b (natural)
Current length: now between SL & APL (after a 2" chop from APL)

Once a week:
* Wash hair with Sulfar 8 shampoo & condition afterwards with any cheap condition made for dry/damaged hair.
* Rinse just 70% of conditioner off hair.
* Apply castor oil after washing
* Air-dry

On non-wash days:
* Rinse hair with water [sometimes, I co-wash if I feel the need]
* Apply castor oil afterwards

Every 1-2 weeks:

Deep condition overnight with Dark & Lovely Cholesterol

Every 4-6 months:
Henna overnight

Infrequent things I do if I feel my hair requires it:
Aphogee 2-min re-constructor every 2-3 weeks
Applying oil blend (usually with esstional oils and garlic) to scalp every other day.

The above aren't mainstays in my reggie because I try to keep things very simple.

I try to protective style with braids 6-9 months out of the year. During this time, I reduce wash days to once every 10-14 days and oil my scalp/hair with a blend of olive oil and castor oil. I do not rinse my hair daily. I re-do the front and back sections of my hair as needed.
