Honey & Olive Oil for Silky Hair



Honey has many healing properties and is actually used as a natural healing home remedy for ulcers, sores, and wounds. It naturally retains moisture, and when used on hair, honey can help dry, brittle strands from losing more.

Olive oil is widely known to have conditioning and moisturizing properties. It is used often in the East to help heal dry skin and maintain healthy hair. When combined together, honey and olive oil offer protection against free radicals in the air, and offer a natural way to condition your hair for healthier, and in turn, shinier locks.

What You Need:

Olive Oil – 2-3 tablespoons depending on length of hair
Honey – 1-2 tablespoons depending on length of hair


In a bowl, mix the olive oil and honey together using a spoon, or your hands. Make sure your hair is free of any other product so that they mixture can adhere to hair strands properly. Massage your the mixture into your hair and scalp using your fingertips. If needed, you can add more olive oil and honey to cover all your hair.

TIP: Separate your hair into sections so that it’s easier for you to apply.

Leave the mixture on for about 15-30 minutes.

Wash your hair as usual. You will most likely not need to use conditioner as your hair will feel silky smooth! This home remedy is safe to use on your hair weekly and if your hair is really dry, bi-weekly.
