This week we continue with the theme of all things Avocado and sharing beauty benefits of avocados! We have a recipe for a homemade Avocado Hair Treatment that you’re going to love. My hair is very thick and very coarse. The cold winter months certainly are not helping either. This Avocado Hair Mask treatment has been perfect for restoring moisture and making my hair feel and look great! Here is how to make a protein hair treatment with avocado to turn dry hair into gorgeous hair.
Avocado Hair Mask Treatment Recipe
- 1 Avocado (save the pit so you can grow avocado from seed)
- 1 Egg
- 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 Tbs Honey
This hair treatment has many nutrients to nourish your hair. Avocado restores the moisture to your hair along with being high in Vitamin B and E. They have so many hair benefits and they work to make dry hair softer. The egg is high in protein which strengthens hair and helps reduce breakage. The olive oil adds shine and conditions your hair. As Gisou points out, honey “natural humectant properties seal in moisture to prevent future moisture loss”.
How To Make Avocado Hair Treatment:
Cut the avocado and remove the pit. Scoop the fruit from the skin and mash it in a medium size bowl.
Add the egg, oil, and honey and combine well blending until it is quite smooth.
Massage the mixture into your hair, starting at the ends and working to your roots and scalp. This will soothe a dry scalp in addition to making your hair feel amazing.
Let the Avocado Hair Treatment set on your hair and scalp for approximately 15 minutes. I like to place a plastic bag over my hair and scalp to let it set in and keep the hair mask from drying out. However, you can just use a claw clip to pin it back and out of your way while you let it soak into your hair.
Rinse your hair well and shampoo as normal.
While you may not notice the difference in your hair directly out of the shower you’ll most certainly see the difference as it begins to dry. Your hair will be soft, shiny, and frizz free.
The avocado oil in this homemade hair treatment is light and moisturizing. Avocados are loaded with nutrients that will smooth and add moisture back into the hair. The olive oil gives hair strength and adds a lot of shine. The honey will help lock in all the added moisture and will seal existing split ends. The egg also adds extra moisture and is full of protein for your hair.
