Avocado Hair Mask Recipe
3 1/2 TBS coconut milk
2 TBS coconut oil
1 TBS olive oil
Blend all the ingredients together to make a smooth paste. Apply the mixture all over your hair, making sure you work all the way down to the ends. Massage it into your scalp for a few minutes so your scalp absorbs the nutrients.
Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. You can leave it on for longer if you like, but it’s best not to let the mask dry completely as it will be difficult to rinse out.
Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo which is preferably organic or sulfate free. You can use your normal conditioner if you like, but it should already feel easier to detangle.
Once it’s dry, your hair should feel silky soft and look beautifully vibrant.
