Lately it seems like everyone’s been talking about hair masks – maybe as an end of winter exercise. And typically, I’m the one who runs out to try whichever great, organic product is recommended… but not this time! In my research to find which mask to buy, I stumbled upon this oh-so-easy recipe to make. 3 simple ingredients. I didn’t even have to go shopping… I had it all on hand!
1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup coconut milk
3 tsp olive oil (**I doubled the amounts because I have long, thick hair.**)
1. Mash the avocado with a large spoon until it’s completely smooth
2. Combine the coconut milk and olive oil, stirring rapidly to make sure it’s mixed in well.
3. Warm up the mask in your microwave, about 20 seconds or until it’s slightly warm (*I don’t have a microwave, so I did old school stove top). Apply the mask to your hair a palmful at a time from roots to ends, and massage it into your scalp.
4. Leave on for at least thirty minutes or as long as you can (I did 1 hour) and wash your hair.
And presto… shiny, healthy, moisturized hair & scalp!
