If you live Atlanta, and even if you don’t, I am sure you are more than aware of the madness that has ensued as a result of the severe weather conditions. In the midst of all the traffic and bad weather, I was celebrating as well as praying. You see, yesterday was my three year naturalversary. So, because everything in Atlanta was shut down, I decided to celebrate by trying out a new product. Recently, before the storm, I made a trip to my local Walmart looking to buy a new shampoo and conditioner. During my search, I unexpectedly came across the Honey I’m Strong Rinse off Treatment by Herbal Essences. I am normally very skeptical about buying products that I didn’t research before hand, but because this one was on sell for $2.50, I took a chance and bought it. I am actually very glad I took the leap.
This product is made with honey and apricot extracts. Honey was used for a long time for health and beauty purposes. Using honey on natural hair helps bind the water to the hair cuticle, thus helping our curls contain more moisture. However, it is important to not use honey on your tresses by itself, because when the sugar in the honey dries on the hair, it can create stiffness and cruchiness. Instead, mix honey with an oil, like olive oil, and then use it.
What initially drew me to the Honey I’m Strong Rinse off Treatment was the mention of honey. I used this product like a pre-poo. Before shampooing I coated my hair with Honey I’m Strong, left it on for about 3 mins, rinsed it, and then shampooed. I have to say, this product made my hair feel extremely moisturized before and after shampooing, conditioning, and deep conditioning. My curls were insanely soft and a lot more manageable.
If you come across this product in your local Walmart, I would definitely recommend trying it; even if it’s not on sale! Needless to say, this was a great way to celebrate my three year naturalversary!
