Hair Recipe: Avoca-Yo Deep Conditioner
If your fro’s been looking a bit bleak treat it to a protein conditioning mask. This recipe brings greek yogurt and avocado together giving your hair a huge boost of protein and vitamins, working to strengthen lifeless strands.
- 1/2 Avocado
- 1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (Full Fat)
- 4 tbsp - Aloe Vera Juice
- 4 tbsp - Honey
Enhancer (5 drops each)
- Peppermint Oil
- Rosemary Oil
- Basil Oil
- Combine Base and Enhancer together in a blender to make a thick paste.
- Pour the contents of your mix into a plastic zip-up bag.
- With the bag sealed, push the mix to one size of the bag.
- Cut the corner (cut a small piece!!) from the side of the bag that is free of the mix.
- Place the open corner of the bag inside the applicator bottle and squeeze the mix into the bottle. Push the mix to release it from sides of the bag to make sure you get it all.
Note: You don’t have to do steps 2-5 (above). But I have found that application is a breeze when the mix is in an applicator bottle. And once done, you can simply place it in the fridge or freezer; thaw it out by placing the bottle in warm water, shake it up (once unfrozen) and it’s ready to be used once more (plus it’s slightly warm ~ BONUS).
- On WET or DAMP hair, part into small sections.
- Use a dime or quarter size amount (depending on the size of section) and spread across your hair from scalp to ends.
TIP: Use a spray bottle if you need to re-wet your hair as you work through the sections. Also, if you have and applicator bottle application will go much faster.
- When your hair us fully coated, apply a plastic cap (or 2) and allow the mud to sit on your hair for 30-60 minutes. Yes, you can night coat you hair just make sure you lay down a towel or two.
- Hop in the shower and rinse hair. While you’re moving from section to section the water is working to detangle your strands. Make sure you re-twist the section once it’s completely rinsed to keep them separated.
- With sections re-twisted, run water over your hair one more time to make sure it’s completely free and clear.
So Why Avocado?
Avocado is one of those super foods that’s high in vitamins! Vitamin B is essential for hair growth, working to strengthen the hair. Vitamin E helps repair damage found present on the scalp.
…And Why Greek Yogurt?
Full Fat Greek Yogurt is said to loosen the curl pattern; fixing that pesky shrinkage problem by elongating your strands. Greek Yogurt also PACKED with protein and works to strengthen and moisturize, taming annoying fly-aways by smoothing and adding shine. High in lactic acid, greek yogurt has natural anti-fungal and antibacterial properties which
fights dandruff by acting as a natural cleanser; tightening and clarifying the pores. These benefits combine to stimulate hair growth and retention. Trust me after this DC your hair will thank you.
NOTE: If you’re protein sensitive you may want to skip this one.
