DIY: Avocado Hair Mask for dry and damaged hair

HELLO GIRLS...
                             Today,I'm going to show how to make avocado hair mask for dry and damaged hair.Avocado are often used in beauty products for their hydrating and nourishing properties. Avocado mask is perfect for those with dry scalp,dry hair and damage hair.
 I have very dry scalp,flacky dandruff,oily hair and hair loss problem it is too much :( My hair are getting thinner I was totally fed up I was taking my multivitamin regularly,I was eating green vegetables,fruits and nuts daily.Tried almost every single thing like vinegar,hot oil massage,egg,anti dandruff shampoo,medicines etc etc.... Believe me my hair loss and dandruff was really really bad. Currently I'm using Tea Tree oil massage and avocado hair mask once a week and it helps me a lot. Now my scalp is 70% dandruff free... I'm feeling better now,my hair are regrowing, my scalp is healthy....HAPPY!!!
Sorry for the long story....Lets start how to make Avocado mask

THINGS YOU NEED...

  • one medium size Avocado
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 2 tbsp grapeseed oil or olive oil(I'm using grapeseed oil)
  • few drops of vitamin E oil
  • 1/2 lemon
  • bowl
  • fork


1. Avocado - Avocados are rich in potassium,vitamin E,protein,vitamin A,Vitamin K,fiber,vitamin B6,vitamin C

2. Grapeseed oil - It is high in vitamin E and C,proteins,minerals and many other anti-oxidants .It is also wonderful for moisturizing the hair and scalp with  fatty acid. It is not a heavy oil and yet contains many nutrients

3. Vitamin E oil - Vitamin E is an excellent solution to achieving beautiful hair. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that is fat-soluble and helps to prevent radical damage. It helps reduce and repair the damage done,providing healthier and shinier hair.

4. Yogurt - Yogurt can help reverse hair damage caused by product build up and air pollution.

5. Lemon - Lemon juice stimulates hair growth as it is rich in vitamin A and B, phosphorus and antioxidants. Applying lemon juice on hair makes it healthy,shiny and strong.


STEP 1. Remove the skin of Avocado and mash it with a fork.


STEP 2. Add yogurt,grapeseed oil,lemon juice and vitamin E oil.


STEP 3. Mix all the ingredients.


STEP 4. Let the treatment sit on your scalp and hair for 40 minutes.


After 40 minutes.....

STEP 5. Shampoo it out and dry your hair as usual
