The Nurturing avocado mask your hair loves!
Are you worried about your dry and dull brittle hair after winter dryness? Do you use your hairdryer daily? The truth is that sun, wind, and low temperatures change the quality of our hair, making them rough, dehydrated and as a result, they get damaged. But instead of going to hair salons spending much money, here you are with a natural and free of cost beauté; The keyword is avocados! We are talking about the super-effective avocado treatment that helps you get back your smooth and moisturized hair avoiding hair breakage and split ends at the same time. Do you know that avocados can be used as a natural intensive hair mask that strengthens, moisturizes, rebuilds, and nourishes our hair in depth? Let’s make our hair shiny and radiant again!
- 1 fresh avocado
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon almond oil/ coconut oil
Remove the avocado from the peel and melt it in a bowl. Add the oils and mix them all together until you make it a homogenous mixture. It’s ready! Now, apply the mask on your hair (from root to tip) and let it act for half an hour. Then, remove it, but keep in mind that before rinsing with water, apply shampoo, and wash very well. In the end, wash off the shampoo with water and rewash your hair if they are still oily. Repeat it once in a week!
Being a powerful source of antioxidants, minerals, beta-carotene, vitamins, and omega 3 fatty acids, avocados can benefit our hair for good. Particularly, vitamins B and E can protect hair strands from dryness and damage, repair scalp damage as well as control hair loss. Plus, the fruit is filled in biotin which is shown to stimulate new hair growth and make our hair and nails lustrous again!
Now, what about the oils? Loaded with precious vitamins E and K, almond oil offers anti-aging and healing properties on our body from top to toe (skin, hair, nails)! On the other hand, coconut oil which also contains plenty of vitamin E offers antibacterial and antifungal properties. Both oils give a silky texture to our hair, boosting the hydration levels and nourishing the dry hair and scalp.
- You can also add honey – an extra antioxidant “friend” – which is rich in minerals and vitamins to promote your hair growth in case you suffer from hair loss; Did you know that honey can promote the growth of epithelial (skin) cells in the scalp?
- If you have oily hair, you may avoid the oils from your roots and just apply it on hair tips.
