Benefits of Honey for Hair + 7 Hair Masks Made with Honey

Most of us know honey as an alternative sweetener that contributes to a healthy lifestyle. But who knew that applying this sticky, sweet substance to your hair could also help? Okay, some of you probably knew that honey had caring properties. But did you know that this is also a great ingredient for increasing hair growth?

Honey, which is a softener, is one of my favorite ingredients to use in hair masks. But as soon as I learned that it supports hair growth, I decided to do my research to find out if it really works. Here’s what I found:

What Are the Benefits of Honey for Hair?

  • Honey is a emollient, meaning it keeps the moisture in your hair trapped. This reduces breakage, which often results in slower hair growth.
  • Using honey as a hair care ingredient not only increases hair growth, but also stimulates hair regrowth from dormant follicles.
  • Honey has rich antioxidant properties that prevent scalp and damage that keeps your hair healthy.
  • Honey cleans the hair follicles from residues. If you do not clean in this way, clogging of the pores on your scalp often causes hair loss.
  • Honey also has antibacterial and antiseptic properties. This prevents scalp infections and alleviates problems such as dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis that prevent hair growth.
  • Honey strengthens hair follicles and reduces hair loss.

As you keep these in mind, we can continue by reading the hair masks that make your hair grow.
