for a while i have been wanting to try some sort of hair mask that would contain my friz and try to make my split ends less noticeable. i have had my eye on this mask, mainly because it seemed pretty easy to do! coincidentally, paris's sister asked me this weekend if i wanted to try to do a hair mask with her and i said absolutely.
all you need is some avocado and olive oil.
since i didnt have a mixer like the tutorial called for i just mashed them together really well with a spoon. this is what i got:
i applied to mask only to the middle of my hair and below, mainly because the top of my hair gets pretty oily on its own and i didnt want to risk having the roots like super greasy.
a few things:
the tutorial says to just rinse out the mixture with conditioner. i needed to shampoo my hair twice to get all the stuff out! simply rinsing did not work for me.
the tutorial also says you can add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil because your hair will soak up the scent. you should do this. i was tempted to name this post "how to make your hair smell like avocado" because after shampoo and conditioner my hair still vaguely smells of guac. i just didn't think that title would attract much attention ;)
however i must say after blow drying my hair i noticed significantly less frizz/extra volume that my hair normally has when i blow dry it.
and now my hair is super soft!
i would definitely try this again, but with an extra scent added to mask the avocado smell. has anyone tried any similar hair masks??
