avocado hair mask

hair mask

Avocado season in Puerto Rico translates to months of breakfasts, dinners and snacks centered around the delicious fruit. We are blessed with a plentiful tree just down the road from us. Now that the season has ended, we have to scavenge the area for neglected avo or scale the tree to reach the ones no one else has noticed. Which means we reallly stretch them to their fullest in our cooking! So, I haven’t made this mask in a while, needless to say, but it did some nice things for my hair so I figured I would share in case you have extras around your place!

Easy Avocado Hair Mask

1 over ripe avocado
1 tbsp of honey
1 tbsp of coconut oil

Massage into your damp hair then wrap in a shoulder cap and sit in the sun for about 5 to 10 minutes to warm the oils and let the nutrients do their work. Wash out well, maybe use a tiny bit of shampoo if you don’t like the feeling of the coconut oil. You can adjust the recipe to find the consistency you want! I would recommend applying outdoors and wearing a button up shirt or swim suit.
