Honey-Infused Hair Products That Will Transform Your Hair-Care RoutineMay 15, 2023
Honey has generated quite a buzz in the skincare industry for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties. But the perks of this all-natural golden goo don’t stop at skincare — it’s just as beneficial for your hair, too. With World Bee Day coming up later this month on May 20, there’s no better time to learn about what honey can do for your hair.
“Because honey has emollient, humectant and strengthening benefits, it can comfort the scalp, as well as hydrate, strengthen and boost hair shine,” says Millie Morales, the consulting celebrity hairstylist for Garnier.
While these properties make it especially great for those with dry, brittle hair, Morales says that anyone can benefit from incorporating honey into their hair-care routine, regardless of hair type or texture. “It can strengthen the hair follicle, helping with hair breakage.” Plus, for those with kinky, curly hair, the emollient properties can smooth and lock in moisture for more defined curls, she says.
So whether you want to moisturize, strengthen or smooth your hair (or all three!), honey may be the star ingredient your hair-care routine is missing. Since slathering raw honey onto your strands can get messy, try some of these game-changing honey-infused products below instead.
