How to Make Hair Mask At Home
My Horrible and Tough Time
Moving to a seasonal country is not always a good thing for me. I have had some bad experiences and tough times, especially when it comes to my hair. I grew up in a tropical climate country, suddenly I moved a thousand miles away and ended up in Utah. After spending a few years in the dry and deserty climate, I was facing some issues. I started noticing my hair scalp getting so dry, and my hair has fallen. I lost too much hair and started noticing my hair is getting thinner. In my head, I was screaming. "This could never be happening to me!" Ever since I was a little girl, I have thick and dark hair just like my mother.
Hair Products Testing
Last year was the pinnacle where I feel I must do something immediately. So, I went to multiple stores to find a cure. I purchased several types of hair products including shampoo, conditioner, and hair oil to treat my hair. I tossed the previous shampoo and conditioner I've used for a while. Quickly, I switched to new products and applied to my hair numerous times while patiently waiting for the result. Zilch. Nothing works for me.
Avocado Is A Rescuer
I decided to read and look for information on the internet. I gathered as much as I can about hair remedies that I can do at home. I determined to ditch the hair products at the store and turn to a natural remedy instead. In the meantime, I saw how people shared how avocado is good for hair wellness. These days, avocado has become an astonishingly popular food among health-conscious individuals. It’s often referred to as a superfood, which is not surprising given its health features.
Here are some of the most nutrients, in a single 3.5-ounce (100-gram)
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B5
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin E
- It also contains small amounts of magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, phosphorous and vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin).
Did you know avocado oil helps rejuvenate and moisturize the scalp? A rich source of proteins, amino acids, and vitamins, avocado helps soothe the scalp and promotes long, strong, healthy hair growth.
My Honest Thought
For the past 3-4 months, I have been using the avocado hair mask, and the result was astonishing. My scalp feels soothing, less itchy, and my hair slowly stop from falling every time after I washed. Honestly, I couldn't be more pleased with the ingredients used in the process of making the hair mask. It's inexpensive, natural, and most importantly, it works tremendously for my hair. I wish best of luck to everyone out there who wants to try or think about doing this at home though the result may vary for certain people.
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- 3-4 tablespoons coconut milk
- 1-2 drops lemon essential oil (You can avoid the lemon essential oil if you don't have it at home or it might irritate your skin).
- Cut the avocado in half. Using a knife, slice through the avocado lengthwise until you feel the knife hit the pit.
- Remove the pit.
- Use a spoon or spatula to scoop the flesh out and transfer it to a blender.
- Add the honey, olive oil, coconut milk, and lemon essential oil.
- Blend the mixture until it reaches a smooth texture and become like a thick paste.
- Scrape the mixture into a cleaned jar.
- Apply it right away to your hair. (Make sure to massage the mask thoroughly between your hair).
- Cover your hair with a shower hat or clean cloth for 20-25 minutes.
- Rinse well with lukewarm water. Apply shampoo and conditioner to your hair as per your routine.
- If you have some leftover mask, cover the jar with a cling wrap and close with a lid.
- Keep in the fridge for the next day or every other day. (I recommended use the whole mask as avocado flesh tend to get dark easier).
