Homemade Avocado Hair Mask That Can Do Wonders

It is no secret that avocado is pretty much one of the healthiest fruits to consume to boost your overall well-being; but here's the good news – it can be used in numerous other ways to promote hair health as well. Dear ladies, brace yourself for some revelations that will help make your hair look like from the covers. Soft, long and shiny, yes - hair goals at their finest!

The key ingredient to prepare your homemade avocado hair mask is avocado of course, so it is worth mentioning a couple of facts about this wonder fruit that you may not have been aware of. For starters, avocado is a fruit (not a vegetable as many believe it to be) which actually belongs in the berry family. It is loaded with potassium (almost twice as much as bananas) and amino acids. Moreover, it is a real protein bomb, containing about four grams which is among the highest amount of all fruits. And being such a health booster, it is a real solution for nearly all hair problems. Let's take a peek at how this fruit wonder can do wonders to your hair.

Moisturize

All those chemical treatments, exposure to sun and wind and even environmental pollution have a great impact on your hair, damaging it and making it dry and weak. Avocado comes to the rescue! Besides being full of vitamins B6, A, D and E, it is also packed with amino acids, proteins, magnesium, iron, copper and folic acid. Here are the ingredients you should mix if you want to make an avocado mask to treat dry hair.

• 1 teaspoon olive oil
• 1 tablespoon avocado oil
• 1 egg
• ½ tablespoon raw honey

Mix together all the ingredients and apply them to your hair. Make sure to cover your hair completely and leave the mix on it for about 10 minutes. After that, rinse and wash your hair with a mild shampoo and a conditioner as normal.

Revitalize

I bet you have all experienced that tiny horror scene when you look up close your hair and realize all its splendor, shine and strength are gone. But why? Where did it go? The truth is, as much as good they may make your hair look at the moment, all those chemical treatments, hair blowing and straightening, they kill its vibe over time. But hey, do not panic, nature is amazing and it would be shame if you did not try to do all that it is in your power to give your old hair a new shine. Here's a homemade avocado hair mask treatment to help you achieve your hair goals faster.

• 1 ripe banana
• 1 ripe avocado
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• a few drops of an essential oil by your choice.

Mash the banana and the avocado together well in a medium sized bowl, add the oils and continue mixing. After that, apply the whole mixture to your hair, cover it with a shower cap and leave it for about 15-20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly; shampoo and condition as usually.
