I tried a honey ACV rinse last night too.  I think I liked it better than just ACV - my hair seemed less flat after it dried.  But I'm still experimenting, so I don't know if I"ll like it long-term.

Be careful making the banana mixture!  I've seen two posts so far (can't remember who) and they had a hard time getting the banana strings washed out.  So you probably want to make it in a blender full-blast, or "shave" the strings off.  I think you can run the edge of a spoon down the sides to get them off.

Another trick to prevent the banana strings is to peel the banana from the bottom up.

In all my 32 years I never even THOUGHT to peel a banana the other way.  Ingenious! 

I'm really craving a smoothie now.

I mixed olive oil and about 3 tbs honey and used it as a deep conditioner. It worked pretty good on my hair.  Smiley

What is your hair like?  I have really fine hair so I am a little cautious about what I put on my hair.

I've always wanted to try honey as I've read such rave reviews about it- but I'm a little hestitant to use it-sounds like it would be sticky and hard to get out!

There is no harm in trying it at all - honey is totally soluble in water.  Some people even leave a little in - but I can't say I'd recommend that ...g

novusfemina---sounds like a good recipe.  Do you do seperate rinses....as in first the honey & warm water rinse and then the ACV and water rinse?  Do you do these rinses AFTER conditioning and then leave in??

I am LOVING!(!!!) my honey-vinegar rinse... 4 generous TBS of honey dissolved in a cup of warm water, then like.. two TBS of ACV and another two cups of cool water to top it off....  I make sure all my hair gets saturated, and I don't rinse it out...

My hair is so slippery and soft and SHINEY!!!!   Love it!

What kind of wash do you do? I am interested and want to know if your way of doing it is similar to mine. What part of the wash do you use this type of ACV?

I had some apricot-peach honeybush teabags that I didn't like so I used some in my herbal hair rinse.  They have some dried honey in them and they leave my hair all shiny!  There can't be much in them--the honey is the last ingredient listed and I use one bag to 2 cups of water, but I'm definitely shinier.   Grin

ewww. I hate banana strings!  Also I am really glad I saw this, Im about to start trying a vinegar rinse on my hair after W & C but I liek the sounds of also adding honey.  Ive never put honey OR vinegar in my hair, but the results sound lovely.  i think i will try it!

I've used honey to lighten and I love it! It rinses out easily, don't worry!

I just posted this in my Herbal Hair Color post, but let me show y'all here too! Here's my hair after a few hours sitting in the sun with a (rather sticky) lightener made of alfalfa honey, tea made of chamomile and mullein, and a squeeze or two of lemon. If you compare to my avatar photo, you can see how nicely it lightened my really dark hair, and the shine and bounce was tremendous!  Grin

Wow, Mellie, I would never have thought of using honey as a lightner.  The color is great!   Smiley
