Avocado Hair Masks: Benefits for Hair Health and DIY Recipe

Read on

If you have made your way to this article, you want to find a great way to make your hair look shiny, smooth, and healthy, but you don’t really want to have to leave your house for it.

Well, you are in luck (assuming you have a kitchen stocked with the basics).

What does an avocado hair mask do for hair?

An avocado is basically a big green solid healthy oil with a bunch of beauty-boosting vitamins and minerals thrown in there for good measure.

It is these healthy oils that help pack in moisture to lackluster dried-out strands and seal it off with a nice silky sheen.

In addition to these fatty acids, avocados are a great source of magnesium and potassium that help seal the frazzled hair cuticles leaving a smooth feel to each strand.

Finally, a healthy dose of biotin may help hair grow faster and become less brittle - especially in those that have an underlying biotin deficiency to begin with.

DIY avocado hair mask recipe

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ banana
  • 1 raw egg
  • 1 tbsp almond milk

How to use an avocado hair mask?

The best way to use an avocado mask is to mix together all of the ingredients.

If you have some bonus ingredients like coconut oil, olive oil, honey, lemon, banana, or egg all the better - but if all you have is an avocado that will still work.

Using a rubber spatula and a small mixing bowl, smash the avocado and all of the ingredients against the side of the bowl until you have a smooth paste.

(The more you mask and fluff, the easier it will be for you to thoroughly coat all of your hair.)

Then, section your dry hair into manageable sections, probably at least 4.

Finally, slather on your fluffy green concoction starting at the ends and then working your way up to the roots taking care to coat all of your hair well.

Pile all of your hair on top of your head and cover with a shower cap to help increase the heat to really penetrate each hair.

Leave your lean green mean hair mask machine on for at least 20-30 minutes, but you can go longer or even overnight if you like (just be sure to protect your pillow with a covering or a towel).

After all of that has had time to soak in, start by rinsing the avocado hair mask with warm water in the shower until the water runs clear, then shampoo and condition as usual.

Upon drying and styling your hair you may notice that it is more easily combable, shiny, and silky.

How often to use an avocado hair mask?

There is not really a downside to using an avocado mask as often as you like since you will just be gently infusing the strands with oils and nutrients that they love.

However, if you tend to have extra oily roots you may find that too many avocado masks keep the roots too oily for your liking.

Otherwise, feel free to apply an avocado hair mask to your heart’s content.
