@nattiejeanne:  if you water down the hydrogen peroxide, it will do the same thing. A chemical reaction is a reaction is a reaction, regardless of how you get there.

@Kir32:  “I’m also lol’ing at the people saying they dont’ use natural products in their hair….what??”

Yeah me too.  I’m finding these types of comments very strange.

@nattiejeanne:  Eh, it looks slightly lighter to me, but it might just be because of the flash or the effect from your highlights, I dunno.  Either way at least it made your hair feel nice.  I love using honey in my hair too, I just never tried it with cinnamon.

@bkrocks13:  OP doesn’t seem too hard pressed about the color to me.  I take her attitude to just be more like a “let’s try this treatment that’s supposed to make my hair feel nice, and maybe it’ll lighten too, but if it doesn’t at least my hair will feel nice”.  And one benefit of using honey opposed to CVS peroxide is the after effects on your hair.  Honey just makes it feel better afterwards.  Its a natrual humectant and emollient.  So it will help your hair retain moisture and stay soft and smooth.

@chaibella:  this just seems like a lot of work and time when you could just take some level 5 developer, water it down, spray it on and leave it for 10 minutes then shampoo and condition your hair (or use honey or evoo or whatever you want.)

@nattiejeanne:  all Righty. I just woke up from my honey cinnamon sleep! It was interesting, that’s for sure! 

I followed a similar recipe to yours. I found the cinnamon impossible to mix. I ended up like ‘squishing’ handfuls when I put it in my hair to redistribute the cinnamon.

Saran wrap is so not comfortable.. Or sexy! 

Ditto to sleeping with a pillowcase and towel on your head. Oh well, we do what we gotta!

First thing Fiance said this morning? “love why did you sleep with a mountain of pillows on your Head?”

But then I took the headgear off. And I could tell already that my hair was for sure happier! It’s still wet (and will be for a bit…) so I can’t see the colour but it feels so amazing!!

My hair is super curly and dry and frizzy so any kind of nice moister is great! 

I took pic last night, I will report back!

Honey is GREAT for your hair. Heat the honey and have whatever your mixing with it at the ready. When you heat it it becomes really thin. Mix it with olive oil or whatever you want. I leave mine in over night. Proven fact that honey strengthens hair and prevents breakage and damage. Plus the shine and softness!! Oh baby! YOUR NOT CRAZY!  HONEY IS GREAT FOR HAIR!
