medieval moisturizing hair treatment for dark hair. Correction: Please adjust the amount to cover all your hair. The oil penetrates the hair shaft, so shampooing will not undo the conditioning.


  1. combine olive oil, and honey in a container with a lid. shake well. Let it sit for two days shaking the mixture periodically.
  2. When you are ready to shampoo, put the mixture on dry hair, and cover with a plastic bag. Put your feet up, and relax. I let it sit for two hours.
  3. When you are ready, shampoo and rinse.
  4. This recipe was used by Queen Anne, and was very closely guarded. Makes hair feel amazing.Use more mixture if you have a lot of hair.

I liked this not a bad idea although maybe the ratio should be more honey to oil I don't know. My hair does feel softer. I like that it's not a mayo or egg or garlic hair treatment. Thanks.Made for PAC Fall 09

I have used something similar to this....but, you do have to wash your hair a number of times to get all the oil out of the hair...which kinda defeates the purpose. I have short hair, so I would never put that amount on top of my head. This would be enough for a number of applications, depending on the length of the hair!
