Honey Lightening - Drying OK?

Hiya! I have been sitting here with my 1 part honey, 2 parts VO5 Strawberry Milk condish treatment to lighten and moisturize my hair for the past 3 hours. I covered in Saran Wrap and a hat but around my hairline where the plastic wrap hasn't covered it has dried and hardened.

My question is, will that change the rate that the honey lifts my natural color? I just don't want the area around my hairline to be less fantastic than the rest considering I am in the headband/growing out phase.

Should I mix up a little more and re-wet around the hairline? Thanks for all tips.

Re: Honey Lightening - Drying OK?

I'm no expert, but I don't think it will make much of a difference. Your hair must smell really yummy. I love the way honey and conditoner makes my hair smell and feel.

Re: Honey Lightening - Drying OK?

The smell reminds me of those liquid popsicle-like treats that come in seriously artificial flavors in the clear plastic tubes. The red ones, to be precise. Mmm. I am getting quite bored though. It's been 4.5 hours. I still have another 3.5 to go? Next time I am definitely doing this overnight when I am go to bed. The waiting is torture.

Re: Honey Lightening - Drying OK?

Honey lightens gradually - it will be different though for each individual depending on a number of variables.

Have a look through the Honey thread - different but positive results overall.

Hi ktani. That thread was my inspiration. I just got out of the shower. I couldn't deal with it for another 2 hours. Next time I'll do it overnight. It certainly feels different but it's still wet. Can't wait for it to dry but I promise not to use a blowfryer.

Re: Honey Lightening - Drying OK?

Have you checked out the receipes there - you can cuse an SMT - receipe is there - for only one hour - overnight is not necessary.

And welcome to LHC.

Here is Maluhia's receipe post #155
http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/...&postcount=155

and more details post # 158
http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/...&postcount=158

not as time consuming but you do have to repeat it.

Toward the end of the thread are Viviane's groundbreaking receipes that work faster - with tomato - and a new one as well - if you want quicker results.

Re: Honey Lightening - Drying OK?

We, at the Honey thread realized that the baking soda part of Viviane's original receipe was not necessary after Joliebaby left it out of her receipe - she deserves the credit for altering the first version - and the receipe worked without the drying effects that baking soda can cause.

edited to give credit to Viviane in referred receipe

Re: Honey Lightening - Drying OK?

Thanks! I can deal with an hour or 8 hours overnight. I don't think I'll do an 8 hour treatment during the day every again. I just lack the patience. My hair is so moist it almost feels damp even 4 hours later and the color has a bit more auburn in it than before. How often is too often for this type of treatment? Can I do it weekly?

Thanks ktani for your help and for the warm welcome. I am so happy to be here!
