Deep Condition Your Hair From Your Kitchen!!

Recently, I have been collecting all natural organic body and hair care recipes. To my surprise many of the things we need most for the health of our skin and hair can be found right in our refrigerators and cabinets. The recipe I wanted to share with you all today is a deep conditioner for hair. All you need is:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 table spoon of honey
  • 1/2 cup of mayo
  • 3 drops of essential peppermint oil (optional)
You mix it all up in food processor until it is nice and smooth and apply to hair! It's that simple! Now let me tell you how I made it hard :( lol

I don't have a food processor so I tried to use my blender. That was a fail! So I scooped the mix out of the blender and tried to mash it up more with a spoon and it kind of worked but still had avocado chunks in it.

So when I went to apply the mixture there was avocado clumps everywhere!

I must stress that the kind of mess in the picture above can be avoided! lol I could have easily fished out all the clumps before applying but I didn't think of that until after lol I left the mix on for about thirty minutes and rinsed it out. I did like the results. My hair had added shine and strength. I still had to go back and apply regular conditioner and let it sit because you cannot detangle your hair with the mix in. I will definitely be trying this recipe again :) Outside of the Avocado clumps the consistency was great! Let me know if you decide to try it and if you have any recipes for organic body or hair care leave them below I would love to try them :) Until next time I wish you all a blessed and wonderful day. Cee you in the next post!!
