Honey and natural oils like olive and coconut oil seal in moisture, ensuring long-lasting hydration and shine.

Tailoring to Your Hair Type

While these treatments are suitable for all hair types, you can tailor them according to your specific needs:

- For extra dry hair, add more honey or oil.

- If you have oily hair, reduce the quantity of oil and focus the application on hair ends.
