Avocado Hair Mask via @noobcook
Today I am featuring a different type of recipe for a change: a DIY hair mask using food ingredients. Avocados are in season now, and I can get an avocado for as cheap as a dollar each. I am enjoying the surplus of avocados with an all-natural DIY hair mask, sans preservatives and chemicals. Avocados are often used in beauty products for their hydrating and nourishing properties. To me, nothing beats pampering oneself at home with a natural avocado hair treat. This mask is perfect for those with dry scalp or/and dry hair due to the moisturising properties of avocado. The recipe calls for olive oil, but if you have colour-treated hair, you might want to substitute with jojoba or sweet almond oil as olive oil may lighten hair highlights.
