Coconut Oil & Avocado Hair Mask

Today I wanted to share with you a hair mask I whipped up this afternoon that left my hair feeling so soft, shiny, and smelling great! All you have to do is combine two ingredients that you most likely already have in your kitchen. All you need is Coconut oil & an ripe avocado. I prefer purchasing the Trader Joe’s brand!

1/2 ripe avocado
2 tablespoons coconut oil

1.) Place coconut oil in a microwavable bowl, and microwave for about 15-20 seconds until melted.
2.) Add avocado and use a fork to mash and incorporate with the oil. Continue to mash and stir until well combined and smooth (it’s okay if they are still some small lumps of avocado).

3.) Comb through hair to detangle (hair should be dry). Starting with the ends, saturate hair with mixture.

4.) Once all your hair is covered, pull hair up into a pony tail or bun. Let mask sit for about 30-60 minutes.

5.) Once you’re ready to wash it out, place shampoo on hair and begin to lather before getting it wet. Water and oil don’t mix well and getting it wet first will make it harder to remove. Lather shampoo through hair, then add water and rinse. Shampoo again to ensure all the oil has been removed. Follow with conditioner.
