DIY avocado hair shine mask

Give your locks the pampering they deserve with this all-natural recipe from Clean Beauty Co

by Psychologies

Avocado is great for hair as it’s naturally high in fat content – ideal for restoring particularly dry hair types without it feeling too greasy.

This DIY recipe from Clean Beauty Co is designed to promote both shine and growth. The combination of the avocado and olive oil, both high in essential fatty acids, will provide hair with a hydration kick.

There’s also some rosemary essential oil that acts as an antibacterial astringent for the scalp, essentially priming it for healthy hair product and encouraging growth from the root.

Soft and manageable locks and a healthy scalp!

Ingredients

  • Half a ripe avocado
  • 1 teaspoon-tablespoon of olive oil (depending on hair length)
  • 3 drops rosemary essential oil

Method

Apply to hair from root to tip and leave on for 10 minutes. This is a heavy mask so will need to be fully rinsed once applied, but the result is worth it.

The company's new book Clean Beauty (Square Peg, £18) is available 19 January 2017.
