The Avocado Hair Mask Benefits

 

This is a perfect natural hair mask for chemically treated hair, extremely dry hair, hair growth and stronger healthier-looking hair. Avocado has incredible benefits for you hair and yogurt will provide instant frizz control and more definition.

Tip: Follow up with frizz control products for more defined curls or waves, and seal the treatment.

 

So, wear a towel over your shoulders to absorb any drips and let's get started!

 

Homemade Avocado Hair Mask

 

For the Hair Mask You will need:

A fully ripe avocado

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 tablespoon of avocado oil

1 tablespoon of almond oil

1 tablespoon of argan oil

2 spoons of yogurt 

 

If you have medium to short-length hair follow half of the recipe above.

 

Instructions:

 

    1. Add all the ingredients in a bowl and blend them until it turns into a smooth, creamy paste, totally free from lumps.

    2. Apply the mask to your hair. Work in small sections at the time and massage the cream into the hair follicles. Start from the ends and gradually walk your way to the roots.

    3. Cover with a plastic shower cap or a hot treatment cap and let the mask sit for about 15-30 minutes. If you have very damaged hair, leave the mask on your hair longer (I don't use a cap and I leave mine for 2 to 3 hours). 

    4. Rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water. Use your fingers effectively to remove all avocado remains. 

    5. Follow up with a nourishing shampoo and conditioner.

    The Avocado Skin Mask Benefits

    Avocado does wonders for your skin! It helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles, provides intense hydration to dry and very dry skin and delivers a softer, younger-looking skin. Avocados are also rich in oleic acid which reduces facial redness, skin irritation, acne, and breakouts. Ready? Let's make this amazing facial mask! 

     

    Homemade Avocado Face Mask

     

    Make sure to use a fully ripe avocado to make it easier to blend and mash.

     

    You will need:

     

    half avocado

    1 tablespoon of olive oil

    1 tablespoon of almond oil

    1 tablespoon of argan oil

    1 spoon of yogurt (or 2 spoons of milk)

     

    Instructions:

     

      1. Add all the ingredients in a bowl and blend them until it turns into a smooth paste. Avoid any lumps.

      2. Gently apply it to your face (and neck, this is optional, but I definitely advise treating this area too). Avoid the eye area. 

      3. Allow the mixture to sit on your face for 10-15 minutes

      4. Remove the mixture with lukewarm water.

      5. Follow up with cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer.
