I’m always on the hunt for natural (and most importantly, affordable!) beauty remedies to add to my arsenal and this Avocado & Honey Hair Mask is my new favorite!
Here’s what you’ll need to make this super-easy hair mask at home…
DIY Avocado + Honey Hair Mask
1 whole avocado
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
* if you have longer than shoulder length or thick hair you may want to double the recipe
This is a great mask for customizing. Try adding in a tablespoon of coconut oil or yogurt or even 1 egg for a boost of protein.
1 – Put all ingredients in a bowl and mash until combined. Mashing by hand will leave small lumps, but you could also you a stick blender for smooth mask
2 – Heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds to warm
3 – Apply to dry or damp hair from roots to ends, paying extra attention to ends where hair is driest
4 – Leave on for 15 – 20 minutes (For deeper conditioning, heat hair with a warm blow drier), then shampoo & condition as usual
Even in the shower, I could feel the benefits of the fats from the avocado and the oils from this mask on my hair. After one use (and BEFORE doing my normal styling routine to smooth things out) the ends of my hair felt smoother/silkier and definitely not as dry.
