Eat it in your salad and put it in your hair. Check out this new natural hair conditioner!

Progress always involves risks. You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first. ~Frederick B. Wilcox 

When taking the step to becoming natural, at some point of your journey you should try 

at least one, “WHAT THE HELL!” product in your hair. It could be oatmeal, honey, bananas, 

avocado, and even mayonnaise. 

Once a week I co-wash; washing your maze ( natural hair) with only conditioner instead of 

shampoo. I use it because shampoo strips natural oils out of your hair. This nifty homemade

conditioner will remove enough dirt while still leaving your natural oil. Friends, I have done  a many 

homemade hair masks, but the simplest one is the avocado mix. It consists of an avocado, olive 

oil/coconut oil/your favorite oil, and honey. Avocado benefits your hair by moisturizing your dry 

scalp, vitamin B and E is in this fatty fruit and it strengthens and protects your hair, the fat also 

helps control split ends and keeps it shiny. The honey in this mix is a natural softener and natural 

antioxidant, which makes your scalp healthy and promotes hair growth. We used coconut oil this 

time and it helps damaged hair, hair loss, and it is a great hair conditioner. This week I asked my 

girl Kiera if I could use her maze to show you guys exactly how it looks when doing this mask. 

First thing we did was smash the avocado, oil, and honey all together, if you have a 

blender I would advise using that because the chunks of the avocado is a pain to get out of the 

hair. Once everything has a soft consistency I continued to distribute it in her hair by sections. It 

may take a while, but the point is to make sure every single strand of hair has this mask in it. 

Depending on how much time you have, will depend on how long you keep it in. But at the 

minimum I would advise at least 25min, there have been times where I have left mine in for 

45min to an hour. When time is up, wash it out with warm water and your hair should be 

beautifully soft, stronger and hopefully without little chunks of avocado left in there. 

Hope you enjoy using it!

Please comment below and let me know how you liked this mask!
