WHIPPED AVOCADO, OLIVE OIL AND HONEY HAIR MASK
Makes enough for my thick, shoulder-length hair (double it for longer hair)
1 ripe avocado, pitted and scooped out
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
2-3 drops lavender essential oil (optional)
Bowl and hand-mixer or stand-mixer
Hair clip (for longer hair)
Hair dryer or a sunny day
In a small mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, add in the avocado, olive oil, honey and essential oil. Whip on high until light in color and smooth.
Dampen hair with water. Spread mask onto hair, paying particular attention to the ends (feel free to rub it in a bit). Clip your hair onto the top of your head, cover with shower cap, and heat—either using a hair dryer for 15 minutes or by sitting in the sun for 30-45 minutes.
Remove shower cap, rinse out mask, and then wash and condition hair as usual.
