Sometimes we feel like our hair is lacking shine and life. We try many highstreet products in hopes of having just a slight improvement… which never lasts for too long because the chemicals end up producing a negative effect on our hair.

I’m not pretending to re-invent warm water, but reassure an old method that I have no doubt of its success. I’m talking about an avocado mask! A delicacy not only for your palate but for the whole body.

The avocado originated in Mexico, where it seems that was cultivated as early as 1500 BC, and also in Peru seeds have been found in Inca tombs (750 BC). When the Spaniards came to America, they called it “pear of the Indies” for its appearance. It spread in America (Guatemala, Peru, Venezuela) and since the discovery of America by other warm countries. In Spain it’s grown in Andalucia and the Canary Islands.

And after that cultural tour, I share with you this recipe for an avocado mask:

  • Beat with mixer or blender half of a ripe avocado, a tablespoon of olive oil and an egg yolk.
  • Apply it on the hair from root to tip and leave it on for 30 minutes minimum on dry hair.
  • If your hair is very oily, spread the cream on the tips and then rinse with water.

You can repeat this natural avocado mask once a week and will starting seeing the changes immediately. Your hair will feel soft and bouncy.
