Avocado, the luscious green fruit bursting with emollient goodness that your body craves, also happens to be great for your hair as well. Cracking open the wondrous fruit is the key to well-maintained and healthy hair. Dry hair can get a quenching drink from the avocado plant when applied as a hair mask. Avocado is rich in good fats that your body needs as well as protein.

Saturated fats, once thought to be dangerous, are actually good for your body and will help you to feel full longer. These same fats can also nourish and condition your hair. In addition to these healthy fats, avocado is also a powerhouse full of nutritional substances including vitamin C, E, K, folate, and magnesium just to name a few.

COCONUT OIL HAIR MASK, HOW TO KEEP HAIR MOISTURIZED FALL & WINTER

Depending on the length and thickness of your hair, remember to adjust the amount of ingredients you use accordingly. If your hair is long and thick, you may need to use an entire avocado, whereas if you have shorter hair, half an avocado will do the job sufficiently. Leave the masks on for anywhere from 20 minutes to a full hour.  Now, let's check out these mask recipes!

Ingredients:
1/2 avocado
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil 
3 drops lavender essential oil 
1 tbsp. Honey (optional)
Blender
Plastic cap

What to do:
First, blend half an avocado thoroughly into a lump-free puree. Mix the pureed avocado with the olive oil and lavender oil. Once mixed well, your mask is ready!

Apple evenly throughout your hair, focusing on the ends of your hair, as this is where hair tends to be most dry. You may also add a tablespoon of honey. Honey is a humectant, meaning it draws moisture to it. If the mask feels too sticky from the honey, add some olive oil to the mixture. Place cap on head and leave on your hair from 20 minutes to an hour depending on the level of treatment you prefer.

1/2 avocado
1 egg white

What to do:
First, blend half an avocado thoroughly into a lump-free puree. Mix the pureed avocado with an egg white and apply throughout your hair. Leave on for thirty minutes to an hour depending on how damaged your hair is.

Over processed strands and the use of heat styling tools can lead to weakened, damaged hair. The bonds that form hair are made up of keratin and both chemicals and heat styling can break down those bonds, leading to damaged and brittle hair. Pampering your with avocado and egg whites will give it both moisture and luster to your strands. 

Eggs are not a good source of protein for your hair because the proteins are too big to penetrate the hair shaft. Same problem with mayo but they still can benefit the hair with shine.

  1. The watch has been distilled down to its most useful state, with very rolex replica that is extraneous. I can understand the choice of a polished case for what is ostensibly a tool watch, but it seems to work well in the photos both here in the replica watches and in the live photos below. I also want to mention that throughout the article the rolex replica silicone is used, where I believe it should be silicon. Silicon is 2017 replica watches used in the semiconductor industry while silicone is a polymer used in, among other things, breast implants. Sorry to be pedantic, but the replica watches uk scientist in me can help it. This motif, popular on watch dials and replica watches is depicted here surrounded by roiling multicolored snakes, all hand painted on woolly mammoth ivory. The watch is shown on a custom hand tooled and stitched leather strap.

  2. Great stuff. Honey is also a humectant — in that it attracts and helps to retain moisture.
