Home beauty experts swear by avocado — and not just to repair damaged hair. Its oils, which are light and moist like our own natural skin secretions and proteins boast the best combination of nutrients for smoothing and weighing down unruly hair!
- Prep: 15 mins
- Yields: 1 Hair Mask
1Mash up half an avocado and massage into clean, damp hair. Let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing with water. Amp up moisturizing power by combining mashed avocado with 1 to 2 Tbsp of a hydrating ingredient, like sour cream, egg yolks or mayonnaise.
2Treatment can be applied every two weeks.
3FOR BEST RESULTS: Always use organic ingredients! If you choose to add an egg yolk into the mix always use organic, pasture-raised or fresh eggs from your local farmers market for the most beneficial hair treatment, these eggs are safer to use raw and contain more healthy nutrients than factory farmed eggs.
4WARNING: USE A FRESH CARTON OF EGGS TO AVOID AN UNPLEASANT-SMELLING SURPRISE WHEN BREAKING OPEN THE EGGS. RINSE THE EGG HAIR MASK WITH COOL OR LUKEWARM WATER. HOT WATER WILL LITERALLY COOK THE EGGS.
