This is a fantastic hair mask for those of you who have really dehydrated hair. Since mine is so long, I seem to go through a lot of conditioner, and most of the time it doesn't help in keeping my hair moisturized. I combined a few of nutrient rich ingredients to give my hair a quick boost without spending so much money on expensive hair products that may not do the job. Plus, this mask is natural and totally healthy!
Step 1: Ingredients
*Avocado is not only good to eat but is my number one ingredient for hair repair because it coats the hair and leaves it with a smooth effect. It's great for that moisture kick you need. Honey is also great because it gives your hair a nice shine (and it smells good, too). We all know that egg is essential for protein- it's also an amazing source of protein for your hair follicles. The best way is to use the whole egg.
*Paint brush (pastry brush)
*Half of an avocado (ripened)
*1 tablespoon of honey
*1 large whole egg (yolk, eggwhites and all)
*Essential oil of your choice
*In a bowl, wisk the egg as if you are scrambling it. In a separate bowl, mash up the avocado as much as possible so theres no big chunks. Add the avocado, honey and essential oil. Mix well. Set aside or in refrigerator.
NOTE: The essential oil I used is Lavender. I got a great starter package with a variety of oils because I wasn't sure what scents I would like. Lavender has a light, floral aroma that is refreshing to the hair. I do however occasionally switch out different scents such as sweet orange, and peppermint (peppermint gives a cool, tingling feeling). If you do choose to add essential to your hair mask just make sure its therapeutic grade, these are the purists.
