Step 1: Ingredients
*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.
Step 2: Wash, Apply Mask
*Leave on for 15-30 minutes.
Step 3: Rinse, Towel Dry
NOTE: I like to towel dry my hair because the heat of the hair dryer can be very damaging.
As you can see from the before and after pic (this is my after), my hair is less frizzy and dry. It also gave my hair a good shine and clean feeling. Enjoy your beautiful, fully hydrated hair =)
