Strong, healthy hair begins at the root. If you keep your scalp healthy, eat healthy, drink plenty of water, and get the right amount of minerals and vitamins, your hair will grow long and healthy. However, we do not live in a world that makes it convenient for us to always reach for those 8 glasses of water a day, and for many of us, getting in our daily dose of vitamins and minerals can really be a struggle. Add on top of that all of the chemicals that we use to keep our hair exactly the way we want it, and you have a built up, dried out, toxic mess that tends to leave our hair lifeless and needing some love.
We want to share a recipe with you that will refresh, revive, and feed your hair what it needs while also helping to remove product buildup.
So, gather your ingredients, pick out your favorite flick, and get ready to pamper your hair. You will love the results!
1/2 fresh lemon
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c raw honey
(Do yourself a favor and get a few extra ingredients. This little concoction may entice you to make guacamole...so feel free to get yourself some chips as well. No need to look ridiculous and be hungry at the same time!)
Food processor or blender
Remove the fruit of the avocado from the pit and peel. Place into the food processor (or blender). Squeeze the 1/2 lemon into the food processor. Pour in your olive oil and honey. Blend well.
Use the towel to cover your shoulders and shirt. Now, in small sections, coat your hair by using your fingers. It is easier if you scoop the desired amount with your fingers, and start at the root, massaging the mixture from the root to the tip. Use your comb to be sure that the entire section is thoroughly covered.
Once your hair has been covered, you can let your hair hang or use a clip to pin your hair up, away from furniture or clothing (as much as possible!). Let the mixture stay on your hair overnight, if possible. If you don't have time for it to stay all night long, then at least let it dry on your head. It will almost feel like a helmet.
Then, using your hair care routine, wash your hair. We would love for you to follow up this amazing hair mask with one of our incredible, all natural hair care products, so if you are interested, let us know and we will gladly help you get the right product for you!
