Lighten Hair Naturally With Honey

Today's DIY is a hair mask that I've been using religiously for the past 6 months or so.  I use this mask every other week, and it has done wonders for my hair!

This mask uses raw honey to both moisturize and lighten the hair.  Honey naturally has small amounts of peroxide, which can be used to lighten hair.  This mask needs to be used on a regular basis in order for the hair to be lightened.  Your hair will lighten gradually, over several uses.  This mask works best on brown hair, but it will make naturally black hair slightly lighter when in the sun as well.

If I had thought of it, I would have taken pictures of my hair before and after using the mask for 6 months.  However even if I did, I don't think that the difference would have shown up in pictures.  My hair is naturally black, and even though it does look lighter in the sun thanks to this mask, it's hard for me to be able to get a picture of it.  However I can definitely say that this hair mask has been great for moisturizing my hair!

Enough chit-chat, let's get down to the mask!

For this mask you will need:
1/4 cup all natural RAW honey (raw honey works best because it's in its most natural form)
1/2 cup conditioner (any kind works just fine)

Mix the ingredients together and let sit for half a hour.  Apply to dry or damp hair, and wrap hair in a plastic bag, shower cap, or saran wrap.  Leave in for 1-4 hours, then wash mask out of hair.  Wash hair as normal. 

This mask will leave your hair smelling great, and feeling soft and moisturized!! After a few weeks, you should begin to noticed a slight difference.  Take pictures and let me know how the mask works for you!
