Honey has always been regarded as an incomparable beauty product in the field of cosmetics, particularly in hairdressing, thanks to its many benefits for the hair. Indeed, applied as a mask, it cleans the scalp and brings softness, strength and shine to dry, brittle hair.
The benefits of honey for the hair
Honey has always had a thousand and one virtues attributed to it, most of them now scientifically recognised. Among these, honey has been shown to be an excellent natural beauty treatment, particularly for the hair.
Thanks to its antioxidant-rich composition, honey brings strength and shine back to brittle, fragile hair. Furthermore, thanks to its hydrating and moisturising properties, honey significantly stimulates hair regrowth. It also contains emollients which act as relaxants, helping to soften hair fibres, making them more flexible, supple and buoyant.
In addition, it cleans the scalp and hair, eliminating dandruff, itching and irritation thanks to its active antibacterial ingredients.
Honey masks: an effective natural treatment for beautiful hair
A real blessing for dry hair and split ends, honey masks deeply nourish the hair and scalp. They offer the advantage of being natural, easy to use, and very affordable, since they only require honey, which can be applied directly or heated slightly depending on its texture. The honey is applied to wet hair, from the roots to the tips. It is then left in place for an hour, covering the hair with cellophane, before rinsing it off.
Other ingredients can also be added to honey masks, such as lemon, almond or olive oil, cider vinegar, etc.
