Honey is definitely a can do-it-all kind of thing. It is good for health and can be used to make skin better. Its moisturizing properties are good for skin and hair. Honey is not an oily moisturiser but rather a humectant which provides hydration without being greasy.
This property of honey strengthens hair and prevents hair fall. It improves hair texture and makes them full of life. Honey is anti-bacterial and so helps in keeping scalp clean and dandruff-free.
Now take a look at these honey hair-packs which can work wonders for your hair.
