Honey is a natural humectant and will water your frizzy hair, locking moisture into hair cells, bringing back their vibrancy. Due to its protein level, this mask should be used just once or twice a month.

Sit for 15 minutes allowing the mask to sink deep into your hair follicles. When the time is up, wash off the mask from the hair roots to the ends. Rinse off as many times as possible until the entire mask is off.
Shampoo well and to remove the hair mask smells make an ACV rinse and condition as usual. Give a final rinse with cold water and wrap your hair in a T-shirt microfiber towel.
– Before applying the mask wet your hair and wrap a damp warm towel around your head to open up hair follicles. You can also use a hair steamer.
– Rinse as thoroughly as possible to wash off all the hair mask to avoid any bits and pieces of the mask sticking to your hair.
– Wet your hair before applying the mask. Using the mask on dry hair and scalp doesn’t work.

Look at the benefits of avocado, coconut milk and olive oil for hair:

– 1 small ripe avocado
– 1/2 cup fresh coconut milk
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
First puree 1/2 a ripe avocado in a blender until smooth. Stir in coconut milk and olive oil and mix well.
Apply the mixture to your scalp going downwards to your hair ends.
Take time to massage the hair mask in gentle circular motions deep into your scalp. Wait for 15 minutes before rinsing off the mask thoroughly.
You may use organic products, like homemade Aloe Vera leave-in or a Flaxseed Gel.
As you see these 3 great recipes are totally organic, so try to make the amount you will use, so that you don’t have to store any. Stored in the fridge they can last 4 to 7 days.
Use these masks 2 or 3 times a month depending on your hair needs and you will notice great results in a short period. Remember to be careful, don’t overload your hair.
– Use a ripe avocado so it is easier to puree. Freezing or thawing the avocado before use also works great.
– Make sure to blend the avocado until you get a lump-free smoothie. This is important – if you have lumps in your mixture, you will have a hard time rinsing off and you might end up with tiny avocado lumps stuck to your hair.
– Don’t just smear the hair mask onto your scalp and locks. Take time to massage the mixture deep into your scalp in gentle circular motions using both hands.
– Slather a generous amount of hair mask onto your hair ends where the most damage occurs.
