Back in the day I had a babysitter who would put mayonnaise in her hair as a conditioning mask. Honestly, at the time I thought it was very strange and kind of gross until I saw the results! Smooth, shiny strands after only one use.
Today, I am always trying to decrease the amount of toxins I put on my body and DIY masks and scrubs like this one are a part of my weekly routine. Modeling can reek havoc on your hair and skin, and my curl pattern has changed tremendously over the past couple of years. Constant heat styling has left my locks more drab than fab. I used to have a love-hate relationship with my curls, but now I truly miss them and am working hard on getting my ringlets back to their pre #modellife, strong, bouncy selves.
Protein and moisture are the key to healthy lustrous hair! This mask can be put together in two minutes and is great for people with fine, thick, colored or slightly damaged hair. Curly or straight! Basically, that is just about everyone! If your hair is super fine you may only want to use the egg white and knock the oil down to half.
Let’s get on with it shall we?
1/2 Medium Avocado
1/8 C Coconut or Olive Oil
Mix oil, avocado, egg and apply to dry hair for maximum effect. Cover with a shower cap for additional heat. Leave on for as long as you can or for at least twenty minutes. I like to do mine while I am doing housework because I always like to shower afterwards.
2-4 Tbs Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar
16 Oz Water
1 tsp nice smelling shampoo or
***Optional 2-3 drops essential oil (lavender or tea tree)
1-Add rinse to spray bottle and take into shower.
2-Shampoo your hair as needed to get most of the mask off (be careful not to slip).
3-Add rinse to scalp and massage to remove any dead skin or dandruff.
4-Rinse. The ACV will condition your strands and they should be softer and more manageable because of the mask.
If you have any DIY mask or scrub recipes I would love to give them a try! Have a great weekend you guys!
