KitchenChemist: Avocado Hair Mask

Today I set aside some time to wash my hair. It really has be suffering lately and I needed to do something extra. So, I made an avocado hair mask and my hair is so soft and shiny now.

Avocado is rich in fatty acids and Vitamins A,C,& E. They are inexpensive and whatever you don't use on your hair you can always eat. (I love guacamole)

It's simple to make and you can change or add ingredients based on your preference.

Here is a simple recipe

1 Ripe Avocado
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Honey
1 egg

Blend this mixture together and apply to dry hair. Then leave it on your hair for 20-30 minutes. After that just rinse and follow up with shampoo and conditioner. Because this mixture has eggs (great source of protein) I don't recommend using heat,( you'll end up with scrambled eggs) however you can always omit the egg and do a deep condition under the dryer with the other ingredients.

Trust me your hair & scalp will love you!!!
