    Dc'd with Motions CPR (light protein) tonight and did my usual honey/EVOO addition. I decided to add an extra big scoop of honey on top of the mixture.

    My hair is much softer than normal. Think I'll keep adding the extra honey for moisture.

    I'm picking up some raw honey today! I've been looking for something to mix with my conditioners because I go through bottles so fast. Hopefully it helps with moisture and lightening my hair over time. How long does it take to see the lightening effects?

    Truth be told, I never measure, I squirt (honey) and pour (evoo) until my eyes are content.

    JuiceMobsta here ya go! Good honey info in here.

    The key is to look for raw, unfiltered honey sold at farmers markets, health stores, etc. The honey sold at regular grocery stores is mostly watered down junk.

    PlainJane I think it took 3 honey treatments before I noticed my hair starting to lighten.

    Have you ever tried Royal Jelly instead of honey one day? Do you DC, rinse, then add your honey mix?

    TamaraShaniece - no, I haven't used Royal Jelly. Sounds like something I used to use way back when though. Have you used it?

    I'm doing a honey treatment tonight. I just wet my hair, put honey on, put on plastic cap, wait an hour, rinse and airdry. Nothing else.

    I haven't. I saw honey, bee pollen, and royal jelly next to each other on the shelves. The regular bees use honey but only royal jelly is given to the queen. Maybe I'll experiment w/ that.

    Sunnieb! I saw that you transitioned from texlaxed to bone straight. What made you go bone straight? Your hair is gorgeous by the way!'

    JazziLady! I've always been a bone straight relaxer. I think I just stretch for so long between relaxers that my hair appears to be texlaxed at times.

    Thanks for the compliment! Your hair is gorgeous too!

    I did 2 honey treatments.

    I prepood w/ ojon oil and pure honey (didn't have raw :( )

    This left my hair soft.

    I DC w/ BBB? Babassu Deep Conditioner w/ honey on top. I probably could have avoided this step because my hair didn't feel as moisturized as it did w/ the Prepoo. Or maybe I should use the prepoo has co-wash day.

    sugaplum I haven't tried that yet. Guess because the honey alone works so well on my hair, I'm not motivated to add anything.

    Matter of fact, I have honey in my hair right now! :yep:

    Oh what a yummy treat honey is. :lick: On the face i love it. i just apply it on and leave it for 6 minutes then wipe it off with a warm wet towel. A esthetician told me this tip. On the hair it just gives that Bling Bling shine! :grin:

    sunnieb When i use it as a mask it keeps my pimples at bay and leave my skin super smooth. I saw a video by Michelle Phan where she made a scrub to exfoliate dry skin for the Winter but i use it all year round. Here is the recipe:

    Michelle's Dry Skin Scrub Recipe
    3 tbs - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    2 tbs - Honey
    1/2 cup - Sugar

    Thanks for the tip! I've heard about this, but didn't know the measurements. I'll let you know if I try it.

    Sitting under the dryer using raw honey mixed with my DC for the first time. My SO laughed at me saying I'm always trying something new I found on LHFC and I won't be happy until I wake up with a head full of ants :lol:

    Just when I thought all this honey wasn't noticeably lightening my hair, I realized that my hair is almost ALL light brown! :grin:

    The first pic is from October 2013 and the second pic is from this morning. I can't believe the difference in the color! I love it! I don't use EVOO anymore, so I don't have that blingy shine, but it's still soft and moisturized. :yep:

    So I see where my honey shine is......the roots!

    When I apply honey, I always do a scalp massage to ensure my newgrowth is covered. It's hard to get alot of honey on the ends since it's already so messy.

    I'll have to think of a way. Here's a pic from just now as I was putting my hair up in a loose bedtime bun.

    sunnieb, do you mix yours in your DCner or slather the honey on top after you've put DCner in your hair. I can't remember what you told me when I asked this before.

    divachyk I mix honey in with my deep conditioner prior to application.

    However, once a week I wet my hair and slather honey on directly.

    Your results are beautiful. :)

    How long do you leave the dc on your hair and do you use heat?

    sugaplum Thank you!

    When I use honey alone, I cover with a plastic cap and let it sit for one hour.

    When I add honey to my dc's, I'll let it sit for an hour to an hour and a half.

    I don't use heat either way. Matter of fact, here's my "honeyfied" Nexxus Humectress that I'm about to apply right now! :)
