As summer approaches, the Florida humidity is already on its way and my hair is doing its usual funky frizzy thing! You would think with all the humidity, my hair would be healthy and hydrated…why doesn’t it work that way?
So how can we restore moisture to our hair naturally…?? Avocados contain fatty acids and vitamins that can moisturize and add shine to hair. Buttermilk can smooth the hair and moisturize the scalp. So what a better combination to regenerate and revive our hair than an Avocado and Buttermilk Hair Mask?!
1 whole Avocado
1-2 Tablespoons Buttermilk
Simply mix and mash the two together until you have a smooth, creamy mixture. Apply the mixture to your hair and rub into your scalp. Then cover with a shower cap or plastic wrap. Let sit on your hair for at least 30 minutes.
I had a hilarious time trying to pictures of the back of my own head! Now, I could have asked my husband to help me, but he already thinks I am completely bonkers for putting “guacamole” in my hair, ha! Well, he’ll be singing a different tune once he sees my hair shine, right?! :-)
After 30 or more minutes, wash and condition as usual and finish with a cool rinse. I use Shaklee’s Prosante line as it naturally balances hair’s pH and restores moisture to dry, damaged hair.
For the greatest results, repeat the Avocado and Buttermilk hair mask two times or more per week to keep pumping that moisture into your hair. You could also mix the avocado with coconut oil or olive oil instead of the buttermilk to change it up a bit. Have fun! ~Kelly
