Posted August 15, 2011 by peta2 staff

Lemme just start out by sayin’ that I have the crustiest hair in the universe. Not only do I dye it regulalry, stripping it of its natural and beauteous potential, but I was also not blessed with good hair genes (dry and frizztastical by nature). :(

What’s a gal to do to turn that frown upside down? A: Deep condition that shiz with DIY avocado-y goodness!

Avo-Agave Hair Mask
1/2 of a ripe avocado
1/8 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons of agave
2 teaspoons of fresh lime juice
a few drops of peppermint essential oil

  • Mash up the avocado.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and mix everything together.
  • Apply the mask to clean, wet hair.
  • Leave on for 20 minutes and then rinse.

Have fun flingin’ your beautiful, bodacious (and mega moisturized) hair! xx

    I’ve heard avocado works well? Is it hard to thoroughly rinse out? I’ve seen some DIY hair masks and scrubs at http://www.taaz.com/trends/trends.html, you should share your recipes too! :)

    Oooo. This should be good for the winter too! My hair gets really dry in the winter. I used to dye my hair all the time but I don’t dye it anymore and I just feel like my hair is healthier :p
