If the name of the oil doesn’t intrigue you, the benefits of it definitely will! I started using the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil in the summer months, after shampooing my locs with the Honey Bee Sweet Scalp Exfoliator, to help seal in moisture— it definitely did that. Almost too well, in fact. With that said, I chose to stop using the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil in the summer because it was a little too rich and heavy for my locs at the time, but fast forward to this cold weather and the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil is the bee’s knees!
Healing Color Damage & Split Ends
If you’ve been following my journey and all of my trials (and triumphs) with hair color, you know I have quite a bit of color damage on the ends of my locs from over-processing. As a result, my ends are highly porous and prone to dryness. The high porosity of my ends, mixed with the cold weather, is a recipe for breakage and shedding. But when I began using the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil my locs were transformed; the rich ingredients of the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil helped to not only seal in moisture for long periods of time but it also doubled as an oil for my skin.
The Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil is definitely one of my “go-to” products when I experience dryness or shedding in my hair from the changing seasons or color damage from earlier in my journey.
Product Details & Ingredients
As it states on the MyHoneyChild website, the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil is “a chocolate sweet of a treat!“. It looks like a normal everyday hair oil but when you open it you contemplate tasting it and when it touches your skin it feels decadent. Smooth and rich. The aroma of chocolate is prominent and after you apply it to your hair you will be searching for the chocolate bar whenever the wind blows because it smells so good.
The ingredients in the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil include an oil blend that is very nutritious for your hair and skin.
Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil,Vitamin C & E Oils, Fragrance Oil
How to Use Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil
The Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil can be used in so many ways to benefit your hair and skin: you can apply the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil to your body after a bath, to the hair as hair oil, or it can be used as a hot oil treatment on the skin.
I enjoyed using the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil to seal in moisture on my locs after using the “Pure Scalp” moisture mist. The Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil was also great for Loc Brushing because the richness of the oil distributes nicely throughout my locs for even coverage. As a body oil, I found that adding th e Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil to areas more prone to dryness helped to keep my skin hydrated throughout the day.
Hair Type Recommendation
I would recommend the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil for hair that is medium to thick density and with medium to coarse texture. These hair types will benefit mostly from the Chocolate Syrup Hair Oil because they’re often difficult to keep moisturized and the rich ingredients of the oil will definitely seal in and help the hair retain moisture throughout the day, whilst not weighing the hair down.
