    Yesterday I made a concoction that I'm going to...

    My experiment went very well. :-) Here's what I learned . . .

    My honey goop is great for twisting/braiding hair
    My hair feels wonderful when I let it air dry with the honey goop on it
    My hair feels less great when I blow dry it with the honey goop on it
    Honey goop smells like food, so avoid using it while hungry

    I tried the following and my nappy dense hair liked it:

    About 2 tablespoons honey
    2 teaspoons rose water
    10 drops EO rose absolute
    1/4 cup hot water

    All ingredients warmed on a stove. I poured the mixture over my plaits and left it in

    Once, I noticed the skin of the backs of my ankles were dry and ashy looking after wearing heels and sandles for a long time. For some reason, I thought of the honey-olive oil mixture I sometimes used on my hair and decided to see what it would do (yeah I'm weird). I let it stay for some time as I finished some homework I was doing, washed it off, the rubbed some pure olive oil into the skin. I only did it one time but that skin that looked about ready to flake off was gone! No fuss! Okay I sound like an advertising comercial, but its true.

    OK i have used honey in many ways and I believed i posted no here before but I tried another concotion that someone may have used.

    Add 2 tsp of shea butter and 1 package of honey to a bowel

    Microwave until both are melted.

    Add dark and lovely ultra cholesterol
    and green apple sauve conditioner ( add less of this than the cholesterol)

    stir it up, i use it as a hair mask

    this is a deep conditioner/hot oil treatment all in 1

    I love honey! I have sensitive skin. I don't have acne but my skin is not smooth. I might be allergic to something...I don't know but just last week I had an idea to use honey and sugar together as a scrub. My face loved it. My face started to get smoother.

    Now, also this is fftopic but I put milk on my face(my skin has never felt that soft before). I kept asking my mom "feel my face!, no really feel my face"

    Anyway, honey is great though.

    Could molasses serve as a substitute for honey for the hair and face recipes?

    I was running out of the neutrogena hair mask and was broke.

    Tried the "Honeyhead recipe"

    2 tablespoons of honey
    1 egg yolk
    2 tablespoons of olive oil

    (got recipe from yahoo)

    Use before shampoo and put on a showercap for 45 minutes

    My hair came out so soft!!!!

    I don't know if anyone posted this yet.

    4 - 5 parts aloe vera gel + 1 part honey. Added tons more hold to the aloe vera gel.

    I'm growing out a clean kojak from Aug, so I've only got about an inch to an inch and a half. But I was able to get two strand twistettes in there and they ain't going NOWHERE!

    It's a tad stiff in a couple of spots, but I think a spritz of moisturizer or oil will help it chill out.

    Ladies I'm taking notes, but a friend of mine told me a few years ago to add honey to my shower gels. Well I tried it, and I am loving it, my skin is so soft and supples afterwards. I love it, especially when I mix it with my Suave Tropical Coconut body wash.

    I think I mentioned this before...

    I like to put honey on my sweet spots before an evening with my beloved: on the neck and throat, behind the ears, etc. I do this when I'm in the shower. After I'm finished washing up, I rub a light coating of honey in various places and then quickly rinse.

    Just the right touch of sweetness is left behind and it's ALWAYS appreciated!!

    Peace!

    I tried adding honey diluted in hot water like tea to my spritz but my hair is stiff like I used holding spray. Is that suppose to happen? Should I wash it out? Is honey not meant for a leave in? There were also conditioners and oils in it that usually work fine left in.

    I've added honey to my leave-in and it was fine. But I only used a very small amount. Also, if you used your spritz while it was still warm, the honey was probably melted in the liquid, then as it cooled on your hair it became a little more solid - thus the stiff hair. I would just add the honey to room-temperature water.

    Just curious I just bought some rosewater and plan to make a moisturizing spritz with glycerin and rosemary EO, would it be ok to add honey previously melted, or will it not blend in? Also do I need to keep it in the fridge since I'm not using water?
