With summer coming, we begin to think light and airy instead of warm and comfy.  Salads instead of stews, shorts instead of sweats, Farmer’s Markets instead of the produce aisle.  Clean and fresh.  How about a clean and fresh way to add some summer highlights to your hair?  No harsh chemicals, just natural ingredients.  Using honey, of course.


1 Tbsp. olive oil                                                2 Tbsp. honey

1 Tbsp. buttermilk                                           1 Tbsp. unbleached flour


  1. Mix the first three ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 – 60 seconds until hot
  2. Remove from the microwave and stir in the flour to make a paste.
  3. Apply the warm paste to wet hair and allow to set for 20 minutes before washing hair as usual.

That’s it!  The olive oil nourishes and cleans your hair.  Honey is the main conditioning ingredient, forming a protective layer to prevent damage from heat and styling products.  Buttermilk enhances hair’s elasticity.
