The other day my hairdresser lamented the dryness of my hair and suggested a mashed avocado hair balm and the light began to glow and I remembered how much I loved using fresh natural ingredients. I positively ran home to search on internet to see what I could find and guess what I found this 5-hair-conditioners-you-can-make-at-home. This post had a number of easy ( well 5) to make natural recipes for hair conditioners. The avocado recipe sounded interesting!
I popped off into town to buy some avocados - I ate one half for lunch ( they are packed full of vitamins including the vitamin B's , monounsaturated fats (good for lowering cholesterol), lutein (good for eyes and skin) and much more) so that I get the benefit internally.
Then later on I will mash the other half with olive oil and some essential oils- probably lavender ( for calming and relaxing), and then coat my damp hair with it, cover with a cheap shower hat ( I use the freebie ones from hotels) and wrap in a warm towel and leave for at least 20mins - probably longer, several hours if I can manage it.
|Half for lunch and half for my hair!|
If I was clever I would leave it on overnight but I'm not sure Mr H would be very keen on waking up next to a woman covered in avocado and essential oils and wrapped in a shower hat, so I think a couple of hours during the day (when the family are not around- so there are no funny jokes ) will suffice!
Then another day I might try the coconut oil recipe as I think have a 500g pot lurking in the back of the cupboard - I just have to find it..........
