Avocado in your Hair?

I love avocados! I love them with my burgers, tacos, in guacamole, smoothies, and avocado ice cream (By the way, Avocado ice cream is so easy to make! and it is delicious!!)! yum!  One more thing to add to the list would be.... avocados in my hair! Yup! When avocados go on sale at my local Sprouts farmers market, I always pick them up. If I can't finish eating them before they go bad... I use them in my hair as a hair mask/treatment. Every time I use it, my hair is so soft and silky. Here is what I do.

Avocado Hair Mask recipe:
1 Egg
1 Ripe Avocado

Mix the egg and avocado with a fork. When the mixture is smooth and there are no more big chunks of avocado left, apply to your hair. I like to separate my hair into sections and apply the mixture starting from the crown. Pile the rest of my hair on the top of my head after each section is applied. After all the mixture is applied to my hair, I massage the hair for a minute or two , and put it in a bun on top of my head. Leave it alone for about 30 min. After that, I simply wash my hair using shampoo and regular conditioner.

Avocado Hair Mask

I prefer this avocado mask with egg mixture because 1. It is super simple to make, and 2. It's easy to wash out. The egg also have protein which is good for your hair as well.

I've tried egg white and avocado as a face mask, but not as a hair mask.
Will have to give this a try :)

If I could I would fill my bathtub with avocado and bath in it! It's so good for both your skin and hair, oh since it has "good fat" I don't have to feel so guilty when I eat it too! haha
