Thin Edges Honey Pre-Shampoo Recipe

My hair edges were extremely thin, they were thin when they were natural because of the hair styles that I used to frequently subject my hair to and they were thin when I relaxed my hair because of the constant relaxing of already relaxed edges. My hair edges keep bouncing back with this formula and I take extra care to do it at least once per month paying close attention to my hair edge.

Thin Edges Honey Pre-Shampoo Recipe


1 tsp honey

2 tsp olive oil

2 tsp castor oil

1 egg yolk.


Mix all ingredients in small bowl. Massage on hair edges. Wrap head with shower cap for 30 minutes. Rinse and shampoo. Use leftovers for hair ends.

    1 cup of plain yogurt, 2-3 teaspoons of olive oil, 2-3 teaspoons of honey are great for growth, moisture and overall shine/health of hair. mix and apply like a relaxer to roots/scalp first, then drag to the ends. let sit for 1-2 hours, then wash & condition as usual…

    Do just apply it to your edges before washing or you can also put it in your entire head?
