The weather is finally cooling off and the humidity is dropping. I actually turned the heat on in the house for the first time this morning to get rid of the chill. With the onset of winter and dry air comes dry hair and this DIY avocado hair mask is just what it needs.
My daughter’s very thick and wavy hair is tough to tame and the change in weather means her dry hair starts to frizz out of control. She has a tendency to tame her hair with a ponytail most days of the week but she gets a little tired of that look every once in a while!
This avocado mask includes coconut oil, egg, and essential oils for increased moisture and frizz control. Use an egg and avocado hair treatment whenever your frizzy hair just gets a little too unruly!
Is avocado good for hair? YES!
If you are trying to tackle your own dry hair issues, there are a ton of food products that actually help tame your hair as well as fill your belly. I will quite frequently help my daughter tame her dry hair by making her a hair mask with ingredients from the pantry.
Since I had grabbed several avocados this week at the grocery store, I used that as a base and tossed in a few more ingredients for a very pretty dry hair mask.
Egg and avocado hair treatment ingredients
Here are the ingredients and why I chose to include them:
- 1 Avocado: Avocados are high in vitamins B and E, which protect and strengthen hair.
- 1 egg: Egg yolks contain vitamins A, D, and E which are all great for shiny, healthy hair. The fatty acids in eggs moisturize and condition to add a nice shine.
- 1/4 cup coconut oil: Unlike many oils, coconut oil actually penetrates the hair shaft to moisturize from the inside out. That means it doesn’t just rinse away the next time you wash your hair.
- 1 TBSP honey: Honey contains many vitamins and minerals and also acts as a humectant (attracts moisture).
- 3 to 4 drops of lavender essential oil: I just add essential oils because they smell good! Add your favorite or skip completely.
You don’t have to use your freshly store-bought avocados for this dry hair mask. It’s a great way to use up overripe avocados that have been sitting a bit too long.
How to make this homemade hair mask
Directions: Into a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients. Beat on high until completely mixed. Apply to wet hair and let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Shampoo and condition as usual.
The ‘after’ shot was taken inside since it was dark out already but her hair is definitely less frizzy than the ‘before’ shot. We will be using a lot of this DIY avocado hair mask this winter to try and keep her dry hair under control! What do you use to treat your dry hair?
