I was also searching for a good hair mask that magically cures all my hair problems. I am also lazy in doing DIY masks and end up going to salon for those expensive spa treatments. But believe me the results are temporary and never lasts. The only thing I like about the spa is the divine head massage they give which I can't do it by myself.
So I discovered this hair mask by an accident, I had an avocado lying in my fridge and did not want to eat it. I know it's best for moisturising properties.. And tada I came up with this mask which actually works!
Avocado - 1 peeled and chopped
Coconut oil or Olive oil - 2 tbsp
Honey - 1 tbsp
Lemon juice or Amla juice (optional)
You need half or one avocado depending on your hair length. Avocado is like butter and gives the hair the much required moisture. It repairs the hair strands from inside with all the antioxidants in it.
Scoop the avocado from the peel and put it into your blender/mixie.
Add coconut oil for the shine and added nourishment to your hair follicles. You can also add olive oil if you do not like coconut oil by any chance.
Add 1 tbsp honey to bind the mixture together and this helps in repairing the follicles. And soothes the scalp too.
You can add juice of half a lemon or 2 tsp Amla (gooseberry) juice if you have any scalp issues like itching or dandruff.
Blend all these ingredients into a thick paste, add some more oil or water to make it into smooth paste consistency.
Section your hair, Use your hands to apply or if you don't want to get messy. Use a brush like the ones used to apply dyes or mehendi. Apply on your scalp and hair completely covering the lengths. Take small sections and concentrate on covering them with all the goodness.
You can leave the mask on hair for 1 hour and wash normally with shampoo. Or use this baggy method to get more benefits.
Tie your hair up and use a plastic bag or shower cap to cover your hair completely, letting no air to penetrate.
After a couple of hours, wash your hair as usual with shampoo and conditioner. The moment you touch your hair, your fingers will slide on like butter, but definitely not oily hair.
Do try and let me know your comments.
Any other avocado masks that you know?
