I love using a hair avocado mask once a week to increase shine and reduce tangles.
Last night was the first time I tried an avocado hair mask! I am really impressed with the results, my hair came out silky and shiny..and no tangles!
I have long hair and it has been increasingly tangly. After trying a few different natural conditioners from my local health food store, but none seemed to help much and natural hair conditioners can be pretty pricey.
Benefits of a Hair Avocado Mask:
There are so many great hair masks you can make using ingredients right in your kitchen. I’ve tried many hair masks with egg whites, coconut oil and many other ingredients. Not only, can they improve how your hair looks but, they are actually good for your hair too!
A hair avocado mask is one of the best to use because it contains so many nutrients to improve your hair and scalp. Avocados are rich in protein, vitamins and amino acids, which increase hair strength, prevent breakage, and moisturize.
Avocados are loaded with hair nourishing vitamins such as; vitamin A, D, and E. The natural oils in the avocado are very moisturizing and adding the olive oil provides an extra boost.
I added a little lemon juice and olive oil to the hair mask for additional benefits too! Lemon juice adds a shine enhancing component to the recipe. The olive oil adds extra hydration to the recipe for deep conditioning.
How this Hair Avocado Mask Worked for Me:
After I rinsed out the hair avocado mask, I noticed an immediate difference. It was so easy to comb my hair out afterwards. Usually, my hair is full of tangles and it takes a long time to brush them out. I was glad to find that this hair mask helped reduced tangles.
This hair avocado mask is a great natural treatment to help dry and frizzy hair. It is very hydrating and acts as a deep conditioner.
The best part is, all of these ingredients can be found right in your kitchen!
