How to Make an Avocado Hair Mask

DIY Avocado Hair Mask

One awesome thing about being pregnant? My hair and nails are growing longer every day. Less awesome thing? My hair is dry, brittle, and lack lustre. You might not be preggo, but long summer days in the ocean, lake, or pool can do the same – dry out your hair and leave it feeling less than it’s silky best. Rather than spending gobs of cash on expensive conditioners, try this super simple avocado hair mask! It uses just three ingredients and will restore your hair to a shiny, glossy mane.

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Whip or blend until smooth. Apply one inch from root all the way through ends and leave on for 20 minutes.

Shampoo and rinse. You may need to do this twice, depending on how well the mask absorbed into your hair. Condition and style as usual. Then strut your stuff knowing you’ve got lustrous locks!
