Avocado Hair Mask
Prep Time: 10 mins
1 x Avocado (an over ripe one that has been forgotten in the fruit bowl is perfect
¼ cup olive oil (or coconut if you prefer)
1 whole egg
Mix all ingredients together to form a smooth paste. If you like you can add up to 5 drops of essential oil of choice to improve the smell.
Apply to damp hair starting at the roots and working to the tips of the hair. Massage into the scalp.
Wrap whole head in glad wrap or put on a reusable shower cap and leave on for at least 1 hour, or overnight is best.
Rinse and wash hair as normal.
Using this hair mask once a week, or even once a month, will result in beautiful healthy and strong hair. The egg white helps to increase hair growth while the high fat content from the avocado, egg yolk and olive oil helps to lock in moisture and reduce hair and scalp dryness.
