Several honey hair recipes contain a mix of honey and olive oil. Try using this honey (pre-poo) treatment. Mix honey and olive oil in equal parts, distribute on hair, put on your shower cap and let sit for 30 minutes before rinsing and washing.
Use this before shampooing to condition the scalp and repair damaged hair. She suggests that you use it regularly if your hair is dry or ends are split.
In a cup sitting in hot water, warm the olive oil and honey (or use the microwave but be careful not to scold yourself). Stir in your choice of essential oil and mix well. While the mixture is still warm, apply it all over your hair, massaging well into your scalp.
Cover your hair with the shower cap (or large plastic bag) wrap the towel around your head and leave on for 10-15 minutes. For severely damaged hair, she suggests that you leave the mixture on up to 30 minutes. Remove the towel and shower cap, and wash your hair with a mild or baby shampoo.
