Foodie Beauty: Hot Oils & Honey Treatment

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? In the lane, snow is glistening. On my head, ends are splitting.  Yep, that's right. It's that time of year again for dry, dull, cold-weather damaged hair.  As many of you know, I'm a huge honey adherent. For me it's a cure all, internally and externally.  Not only does it have healing properties but it also retains moisture. PERFECT for readying your tresses for these colder months. I also have a bazillion oils on hand for cooking AND my skin. So why not see how they work on my hair?  It's so simple!


1Tbsp. honey
1Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 Tbsp. heated coconut oil (so that it is not solid anymore, 10-15 seconds)


1.  Stir the honey and oils together.
2.  Wet your hair, but not to the point that it's dripping. Just a little more than damp.
3.  Heat the oils in the microwave until it's very warm or hot, but you are still able to touch it and apply it to your hair somewhat comfortably (about 30 seconds).
4.  Massage the mixture into your hair, starting at the ends (that's where your hair needs it the most) and ending at the scalp until all of the mixture is used.
5.  Wet a towel with really hot water from the sink, wring it out thoroughly, and wrap around your head.
6.  Keep in the hot towel for a minimum of 30 minutes.
7.  Wash out of your hair with shampoo. Repeat a few times if you can still feel it in your hair.  There is no need to use conditioner.

So far, as my hair air dries, it feels incredibly light and super soft. Not a bit greasy, heavy, or oily. So awesome!
