I find my hair normally the driest just out of braids and so I like to put in a deep conditioning treatment before I do anything else. There are so many products out there that list all these different chemicals and sometimes I just want to put something plain, simple, and natural in my hair. This often means that I scour the ‘interwebs’ for DIY hair remedies. The remedies are pretty easy to find but their ingredients often not. I hate it when I read at home hair remedies that have a list of products that I don’t have in my home and are not easily found in the nearest grocery store/gas station :-). So I was pretty psyched to find a short list of home hair remedies with products that are mostly readily available, familiar and not too intimidating. So here is the first of a number of at-home deep conditioners for combating dry hair.
HONEY HAIR PACK
Honey and molasses are both natural humectants, meaning they attract and hold on to moisture. They are also excellent ingredients to use in creating your own conditioning hair pack to help combat dry winter hair.
1/2 cup honey or molasses
1 tablespoon almond oil (can substitute olive oil)
Stir the honey and oil together until well mixed. Then apply the entire mixture to clean, damp hair and massage into your strands and scalp. Put on a shower cap or cover your hair with plastic wrap and leave the treatment on for 20 minutes. Shampoo and condition as usual.

awesome! when I finally get some almond oil I'll give this a try!
Excellent article! So far I've preferred Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner because it deeply hydrates and heals my hair which is no longer dry, instead it's healthy and shiny 🙂
Thanks Ashley and Anon. I use coconut oil.
