Avocado Hair Mask Recipes

Avocados have wonderful cuticle-softening, hair smoothing properties – and did I mention they also provide incredible shine? Try these basic avocado mask recipes for gorgeously smooth, soft and shimmering hair.

Avocado Hair Mask #1

Olive oil adds an extra dose of smoothness. Eggs add protein and strength. Cinnamon, if added, stimulates the scalp for hair growth.

½ avocado, mashed
½ banana, mashed
1-2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp olive oil
½ tsp organic cinnamon powder (optional)

Combine ingredients in a bowl until well blended. Section hair and apply the mixture from root to tip, making sure every strand is coated. Let the mask sit on your hair for 20-30 minutes. Cover with plastic cap and use heat to penetrate more deeply. Rinse with cool water. Tip: Adding cinnamon can stimulate blood flow to the scalp, increasing hair growth potential.

Avocado Hair Mask #2

This deep conditioning treatment is amazing for soothing sensitive scalps. Honey is an antiseptic, coconut nourishes and the aloe vera is deeply soothing.

1 fully ripened avocado, mashed
2-3 tbsp honey
1 tsp coconut oil
¼ cup aloe vera juice
1 tsp fresh lemon juice

Combine ingredients in a bowl until well blended. Section hair and apply the mixture from root to tip making sure every strand is coated. Let the mask sit on your hair for 20-30 minutes. Cover with plastic cap and use heat to penetrate more deeply. Rinse with cool water.
