World Bee Day: Honey Infused Hair Products We’re Thankful For

Here's the hair care buzz you need. 

May 20th was the first official World Bee Day and if you don’t know what that means, we’re here to tell you what we’ve learned. According to Euro News, World Bee Day was created last year by the United Nations General Assembly to highlight the importance of bees to our environment. We on the other hand, are thankful for bees because if it weren’t for them, honey wouldn’t be one of our favorite hair care ingredients. So in honor of World Bee Day, we’re highlighting honey infused products that we can thank the bees for. Here are the best drugstore honey infused wash and care products you need in your hair care arsenal.

All hail the Queen bee!

Let’s get this buzzing off with Suave Professionals Honey Infusion Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner. These products are suitable for any hair type but if you’re specifically looking for an affordable hair car system that helps strengthen hair, fight frizz and boost shine do yourself a favor and add this to the list for your next drugstore run. The honey infused formula leaves hair 10x stronger in just one use.

Now, you can’t finish your hair routine without a leave-in conditioner. Well, you can, but we highly recommend adding a leave-in conditioner into your hair routine if you want the benefits of added conditioning. This 10-in-1 Honey Leave-In Conditioner by Suave is something special. As the name suggests, it has 10 functions in one formula. Need a breakdown, we waxed poetic about this miracle in a bottle before.

If you’re one that likes at-home hair concoctions, here’s a little treat for your hair with honey. To celebrate World Bee day we challenge you to create a honey hair treatment for your scalp. According to Unilever’s Senior Hair Manager, Leon Van-Gorkam, “Honey has a lot of sugars, vitamins and minerals. Scientifically, honey has been proven to have a lot of anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which makes it great for keeping your scalp in good condition.”

As a scalp treatment, mix honey and a water to create a paste for your scalp. Honey is a great humectant and can work wonders for people that suffer from dry scalp. Part your hair in sections, then apply the concoction to your scalp with an applicator brush. You can also use your hands for this process if you’re down to get a little sticky. Leave the mixture on your scalp for a few minutes and then rinse well with a shampoo. Continue your hair care and styling routine as normal.
