The season of fabulous felt hats and warm wool beanies is here! It’s important to make sure that your hair stays hydrated and healthy during the cold seasons, especially because the freezing winds and drying heat will make your hair limp and lack luster.
So here on the Urban Prestige blog, we found a powerful combination for a hair repair mask using two simple items that you might have in your kitchen. Can you guess what the two powerful ingredients are?
Fresh Avocado and Coconut Oil
Avocado has essential fats and oils like Vitamin E that are great for our hair strands. According to an informative blog post on Super Food Profiles , Avocados have monounsaturated fats that our hair follicles will absorb and work to provide health to damaged hair. The monounsaturated fats can also work to protect the hair from harsh elements in the environment
Aside from having anti-fungal properties that help invigorate the scalp, Coconut oil is reach with fatty oils and proteins that our hair absorbs and gains strength. According to a post from Organic Facts , Coconut oil has been used for centuries in countries known for their women with long luxurious hair–Sri Lanka, Indonesia, and Malaysia, and more.
How To Make the Hair Repair Mask
To make the mask, make sure that you have a ripe avocado, that way it will be easier to mash and blend. Cut the avocado in half and scoop out the seed, then scoop out the inside of the avocado in a bowl to be mashed. To make the avocado mixture smoother, you could also put the scooped avocado in a blender.
Then measure out 1 tablespoon of olive oil, make sure that the oil is in a liquid state. Then add to the avocado mixture and mix well. The mixture should be smooth.
Now apply to your hair and let it sit for 10-30 minutes. Rinse well, and follow with a mild shampoo or conditioner wash.
