Bathe your Curls in a Sweet Treat

By NaturallyCurly

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Give your hair a treat this year too!

Honey Deep Conditioner

1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon olive oil


Mix honey with olive oil. Heat in microwave oven to melt and apply to wet or dry hair, then cover head with a very warm towel for half an hour while taking a warm, soothing bath, then shampoo off.

And, because we love you so much, a bonus face scrub recipe!

Simply Sweet Honey Face Scrub

6 medium strawberries
1 small cactus fruit (optional)
1/4 cup oatmeal (uncooked)
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoons grean tea, brewed
3 teaspoons natural sugar (raw sugar works well)


Wash strawberries and remove stems. Peel cactus fruit and discard skin. Slice in quarters; set aside. Using food processor or blender, combine strawberries, cactus fruit, oatmeal, honey and green tea. Mix until pureed. Place in glass or rubber mixing bowl. Stir in sugar until completely mixed. Store in covered container in refrigerator for up to one week.

To use

Apply small amount to cheeks, forehead, chin and neck. Using fingertips, work product into skin, using circular motions. Repeat. Apply more product as needed until entire face and neck are covered. May be left on skin for 10 minutes as a mask or removed immediately. Rinse completely using tepid or cool water.

    I tried the honey conditioner a few years back after i big chopped and I used the reccommended potions and I was a oil and honey mess lol. It ran down my face and neck. I hated it. I should have used just enough for my short hair at the time. Lol.

        It was soft after I rinsed it out, but when my hair was short it was really dry. Until I found a good moisturizer. It was ok idk if I would try it anytime soon though lol!!
