I have always had incredibly curly, sometimes unruly hair. See below for evidence of me cheesing as a little curly-haired kid:
While it’s grown more manageable with age (and products), it still gets dry very easily and f-r-i-z-z-y to the max. I’ve found the trick to keeping it under control is using a hydrating hair mask. Problem is, I have yet to find any commercial masks that don’t leave my hair feeling filmy and greasy (it’s a fine line!). This DIY hair mask really gets the job done. The avocado and coconut oil are super moisturizing–avocados even (sort of) once saved a lovely friend in an over-zealous fried-ends dye-job situation. Add the olive oil for shine and you’ve got yourself a winning combo.
- 1 ripe avocado (mashed into oblivion)
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Combine the ingredients until they form a thick past and apply to (preferably dry) hair. Leave on for at least thirty minutes (or even longer, if you have the time), then rinse clean. A shower cap comes in really handy with this–it keeps all the goop in one place (and off of your couch) while making you look suuuuuper stylish. That’s what I like to call a win/win!
