I Whip My Hair Back and Forth

23 Apr

Hey hey! Wanna whip your soft and moisturized hair back and forth?

You’ll need: a bowl, an electric mixer/beater, ripe avocado, 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil, a clip (anything to hold your hair up), a shower cap, and a blow dryer.

Steps:

  1. In a bowl, mix half of a ripe avocado (smashed) and 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil (if you have long or thick hair, double the recipe).
  2. Using your electric mixer/beater, whip the two ingredients together until they reach a creamy consistency.
  3. Take the bowl into the shower with you for an easier and less messy application.
  4. Shampoo hair well, ring out excess water, then apply the mask all over. For those with fine/flat hair, skip the roots and only do middle to ends. Clip it up and cover it with the shower cap.
  5. Jump out of the shower and warm the treatment up with your blow dryer on a low heat setting for about one minute. Heat will allow the treatment to soak in much further than it would without. Try to leave it on for as long as you can. Anywhere from 5 minutes-30 minutes is perfect.
  6. Jump back in the shower and rinse thoroughly. Condition as usual with your regular conditioner.

Note: If you don’t have an electric mixer, just mash the avocado up well with a fork or the back of a spoon. Add your olive oil and then manually whisk for a full minute or until it becomes creamy. If you can’t make time to get out of the shower to warm the treatment up with a blow dryer, just clip the mask up in the shower with no cap and the steam will help it soak in.

You can also add a drop or two of fragrant essential oil. Jasmine, lavender, eucalyptus, chamomile, etc etc. Your hair will soak up the scent as well!
