It must be avocado season somewhere because the grocery store has perfect specimens selling for next to nothing. This is a great time to buy a bunch, eat a few and use the rest on your hair. I don’t know about you, but my hair and skin has never suffered as much as this winter. ‘Tis a dry one. I have been looking for moisturizing opportunities at every turn and today my dry, dull hair got a new lease on life.
Here is what I did:
Step one: I mixed 1 avocado with juice of 1/2 lemon and a pinch of salt (I know, it’s basically guacamole). I blended until it formed a paste.
Step two: I applied it by finger combing it in from the roots to the ends.
Step three: I waited 15 minutes.
Step four: I washed and conditioned as usual.
My hair looks and feels amazing. I had that dry, brittle look that comes from color damage but now it is smooth and shiny. It also feels very soft, light and manageable. I highly recommend this treatment – it is an affordable luxury for your hair in this impossibly dry season.
