    Sassy Syrah's Note:

    I have only used this once, but am very happy with the result. I would often use V05 hot oil tubes but this is much cheaper. I used eucalyptus as the essential oil, but I think lavender would be good too.

      My hair felt very silky, but it had a real greasy look to it and I washed it twice. I have very fine hair so perhaps if you have thick hair it will work better.

      I left out the essential oil and halved the recipe for my medium-length hair -- still had an awful lot! I have fine, oily hair that nevertheless has dry and frizzy ends. I shampooed twice to get the honey out, then had to seriously condition because the excessive shampooing made my hair feel like straw. So, my hair is soft and sorta shiny, but I feel like I owe that more to the conditioner. :/ I'd try this again without the honey, and use another oil like Jojoba or vitamin E.

      I came back from our summer beach holidays with my hair feeling like straw. This was the perfect antidote to soften and nourish my brittle, fine hair. The amount given was a lot and I only used half with quite a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil as I like the smell. I wrapped my hair in a towel and sat in the sun for 20 minutes. I only needed to shampoo twice to clean my hair. I happily recommend it to anyone who wants some pampering in the comfort of their own home!
