Today’s post isn’t a real food post, but it contains edible items… that counts, right?
My hair is literally the worst for dry, split ends. At the same time, it’s super fine and too much conditioner makes it really heavy and oily and removes the little volume I can coax into it, so it’s a bit of a difficult customer. Last weekend, I felt like it really needed a deep treatment. Although no hair mask can repair damaged ends, the extra moisture can make them a bit more smooth and easy to deal with, tying you over until you can next afford a haircut. Which, in my case, is about once a year.
DIY Avocado Hair Mask
1 overripe avocado
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Mash the avocado in a small bowl. Add the coconut oil and microwave for a minute, until the oil is melted. Stir until more or less smooth and apply to damp hair, making sure that the mixture isn’t too hot! Leave on for about 15 minutes and rinse.
