Is Honey REALLY Beneficial for Hair….You Bet!
Look at this way, if you can eat it, you can put it on your body. Honey is Actually an Awesome “Food” for your hair. There are so many Characteristics for Honey because it Nourishes the hair. Not only is it extremely budget friendly, a little goes a long way because you only need about a teaspoon to reap the benefits. Honey is second ingredient in our Natural Hair & Body Collection (Ayur’s Batch of Nature). It is used in our 100% Raw-Honey Butter Black Soap Hair Cleanser, Raw-Honey Butter Deep Penetrating Hair Mask and our Raw-Honey Hydrating Butter Whip. So now, let us take a look at the Benefits of Raw.
100% Raw Honey versus Store-Brought (Regular) Honey
The Best Honey to use on your hair is 100% Raw Honey (preferable organic). Raw Honey is made from the Nectar of Flowers; worker bees gather the nectar and place it in their honey sacs where it mixes with acid and secretion. Honey in its natural state is Chemical-Free and contains all of the enzymes and nutrients in it that are destroyed by the heat (especially the high heat from pasteurization), while raw honey retains all of those nutrients to give the maximum health benefits. Pasteurization plays a large role in preventing crystallization and makes the final product of Store-Brought Honey very clear and liquidly compared to the raw honey paste which has a thick looking, no runny texture, but that’s one way to know most of the Benefits are still there!
Properties of 100% Raw Honey
Raw Honey contains all of the B-Complex, A C D & K Vitamins, 27 minerals and trace elements, magnesium, sulfur, phosphorus, iron, calcium, chlorine, potassium, iodine, 22 amino acids, sodium, copper and antioxidants that provide natural defenses against Cell Damage. The 5000 live enzyme content of Raw Honey is one of the highest of all foods; it also contains hormones, antimicrobial and antibacterial factors that are incredible Healing Properties. It is important to store Raw Honey in an airtight container so that it does not absorb moisture from the air. Due to its high Acidic pH content, it helps to inhibit it microorganism growth by killing germs and bacteria, making it an excellent preservative in itself and will not spoil easily
How it Works on Your Hair
Raw Honey is an Emollient, which means it is a natural softens your hair. This makes it a great Deep Moisturizing Hair Conditioner. It is also a Natural Antioxidant, so it tends to make your scalp healthy and stimulate hair growth. Raw Honey is a Humectant, it tends to prevent the “loss of moisture” from your scalp and because of its high sugar content, it helps to retain moisture, which prevents hair fall and strengthens the hair follicles. Raw Honey is comprised of Antibacterial and Antiseptic qualities too, so it prevents our scalp from infections, dandruff and itchiness and tends to keep our scalp clean and bacteria-free. If you suffer from dry/lifeless hair, Raw Honey can bring back lost sheen, restore moisture and shine, as well as FIGHT hair lost and boost hair growth.
How to Use Raw Honey on Your Hair
All you need is a very small amount to enjoy these benefits. I use about 2 tsp when adding to a product. How much you use will depend on the length and thickness of your hair; no more than 1tsp - 1tbs should be enough. Add the specifics amounts you need to your favorite shampoo, conditioner or mix it with your favorite natural oil. Place your Honey Hair Treatment all over your hair and cover with a plastic cap, sit under a warm hooded dryer or cover your hair with a warm damp towel for 20 - 30 minutes, rinse well with warm water. Do this at least twice a month and you will definitely see the difference in your hair. Our Raw-Honey Butter Products contains a generous amount of Raw Honey to moisturize and strengthen all hair types.
