Molasses wash day *update*

 Hey all.. 

Just a brief post.

From my last post, people were wondering whether or not molasses is a humectant.

I hopped on to google and he let me on about the secrets of molasses. Turns out it is a humectant and shares similar properties to glycerine and honey. Some even say more so than honey! It is also a heavier humectant so it can elongate your curls after use, as compared to honey or gycerine. I personally noted this when I was applying it. My curls  and twist sections were quite stretched and the mix was heavier on my hair than usual.

So don't hesitate to add it to your deep conditioning mix the next time you want some extra moisturising  properties in your hair concoction. But I wouldn't advise keeping it as a leave in remedy because of its super thick and sticky nature.



  1. Thanks for the update, Bee. Good information to know.

  2. Thanks for this, I'll buy some when I see. Really thick from the picture, I can only imagine what madness would come from leaving it in

  3. Wow very interesting, I have never heard of this before, but i will sure be looking for it, anything that acts better than honey or glycerine is a super win in my books!

  4. Would keep an eye open for molasses next time I go shopping...hehehehehhe


I love hearing from you! Feel free to drop a comment.
