DIY: Avocado hair mask


Have you ever tried making your own hair masks?  Hair masks help you to nourish and improve the condition of your hair.

One of the most effective hair masks is the avocado mask.  Avocados contain minerals, vitamins and fatty acids that can add shine to your hair.  Of course, you can buy avocado hair masks, but making your own is very easy and inexpensive.  Besides, homemade masks do not include any chemicals and harmful ingredients.  An avocado mask, works as a natural deep conditioner and can help restore shine to dry and damaged hair.
This is a simple version of a DIY avocado hair mask with few, yet very effective ingredients.  It’s very quick and easy to prepare.

Ingredients:


  • 1 ripe avocado (½ for short hair)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons pure coconut/almond/olive oil (whichever you prefer)



Method:

  • Peel the avocado and remove the pit.        
  • Mash the avocado and make sure it’s free of big chunks.
  • Mix the coconut/almond/olive oil and raw honey with the avocado.
  • Blend the mixture until it turns creamy.
  • Apply the mixture from roots to tips onto clean, towel-dried hair.  
  • Let the avocado hair mask sit in your hair for 30 minutes.  If you suffer from dry, flaky scalp, massage the mixture into your scalp.
  • Rinse the mixture out with warm water.
  • Shampoo and condition as usual.

Use this mask twice a month to maintain soft, shiny and healthy hair.
