DIY Avocado Hair Mask

Avocados don’t just taste great; they can also be used on your body and hair! So today we are talking about a beauty guru’s secret weapon and one of the easiest deep conditioning recipes in any beauty arsenal: a DIY avocado hair mask.

To get started, you need a ripe avocado. (Here’s how to check for ripeness!) While you’re at it, pick up an extra avo or two to make a batch of guacamole while your mask sits in your hair. It’s a two-for-one!

How to Make a DIY Avocado Hair Mask

  1. Slice the avocado in half. Remove the pit and scoop out the inside flesh into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons organic raw honey. Mix until smooth.
  4. Apply to hair. Put on a shower cap.
  5. Let sit for 60 minutes. Meanwhile, mix up a batch of fresh guac with the leftover avocado!
  6. Rinse hair thoroughly.

Adding a DIY avocado hair mask to your repertoire is just the tip of the beauty iceberg. You can continue the glamorous green routine by mixing together an avocado body scrub, avocado foot scrub, and avocado face mask.

Make a spa day out of it by inviting over some friends and serving up an array of delicious guacamole appetizers (including shrimp guac-tails and guacamole egg rolls) while sipping on avocado margaritas. Have you ever felt more pampered in your life?
