DIY: Avocado Deep Treatment Hair Mask

 I had put off Deep conditioning for about 2 weeks, and my hair was in desparate need of nutrients. Since I'm not a big fan of store bought deep conditioners, and I was out of the baby fruit I normally use, I decided to try out an Avocado treatment.  I've heard great things about using Avocados in your hair, so I was eager to give it a try.
My hair was a dry and tangled mess 


I started out with 

1 Mashed/Blended Avocado 
2 Tbsps of refined Coconut oil
2 Tbsps of Honey
2 Tbsps of EVOO
1 Tbsp of Grapeseed oil
1 Tbsp of Vitamin E oil (24,000 IU Infused with Keratin)
A Few Drops of Eucalyptus oil

The texture was nice and creamy, but a little lumpy due to the fact that I had used a spoon to mash it.


I lightly spritzed my hair with warm water, then I took a section of hair, coated it with unrefined EVCO then began to  apply the mix while finger detangling.

The process was slightly messier than what I'm used to, but it was easy to clean up.

When I finished applying the mix, I coated my hair with my Safflower Oil and  JBCO-Lavender mix to get enough slip and seal in moisture. 
Post application 

 I found out that I needed a generous amount to get rid of tangles, so if you have thick hair like I do, and don't like to detangle before you DC, then add an extra avocado, or some conditioner to your mix. 


I kept this mix in for over 12 hours, mostly because I was too busy to rinse it out.  I finally rinsed it out with cold water, and applied some Safflower oil to my strands

It left my hair looking and feeling stronger, lustrous, less frizzy and shiny, plus it clumped my curls. This mix helped with my frizz problem a lot, I may do this more often to combat frizz.
