After days spent on the beach, sun, lake, sea, mountain, it's time to treat your dry and damaged hair. No need for commercially made care products, choose one of the three DIY treatments.

The core ingredient is the raw honey as a natural humidifier. It is also full of antioxidants and nutrients that are beneficial for stimulating hair growth. You will need a natural supplement that provides easier application and which will help restore natural shine to the hair from the roots up. Otherwise you can end up with just a sticky mess.

Honey and olive Oil 
Olive Oil can create a big difference in moisture after just a few uses, and promotes a healthy scalp and hair roots. It also helps smooth and coat dry and damaged hair shafts.You will need:

10 HONEYSTICK or 1/2 cup of honey
1/4 cup of olive oil
Mix together ½ cup of honey and ¼ cup of olive oil, warming the mixture slightly if you need to. Apply to hair as needed.

Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is added here as it leaves hair with lovely shine and acts a natural conditioner.You will need:

5 HONEYSTICK or 1/4 cup of organic raw honey
10 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
Mix together honey and Apple Cider Vinegar. Apply as you would shampoo to damp hair, and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse out with warm water.

Raw Honey
This recipe contains just honey and water, nothing extra added or needed!
You will need:

5 HONEYSTICK or1/4 cup of organic raw honey
Fresh water
Mix ¼ cup of organic raw honey with just enough fresh water to thin it out to the point where you can spread it around your hair (add it tablespoon by tablespoon.) Obviously this depends on how much hair you have-you can up the amount of honey if you need to. When you’re ready, apply as you would shampoo to damp hair and let it sit for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

Bonus Tips:
    • Stick to raw organic honey. If you have to warm it a little bit that’s fine, but the ultra-pasteurized clear stuff you buy at the supermarket really doesn’t have many benefits.
    • Try adding some honey to your regular shampoo or conditioner if you don’t feel like making up a separate treatment.
    • Be aware of the type of hair that you have. Applying olive oil and honey to limp, thin, hair that is prone to getting oily will probably just make it greasier and heavier.
    • There’s no need to use these treatments every day. Once or twice a week should be sufficient.
    • Be patient. Applying honey to damaged and dry hair is not going restore it to perfect condition right away
