A Hair Conditioner From Your Kitchen?

make your own hair conditioner

Got dry or frizzy hair?

Trying to cut costs?

Like the idea of a conditioner safe enough to eat?

Way too often we fall for hair products with alluring labels like “Nourishing” & “Shine” or even “Natural” which come along with their preservatives and other chemical additives.  While that may not be lethal (in the short-term) it usually worsens the case for those with sensitive, damaged or brittle hair.  These products are also usually a lot more expensive than if you were to DIY – depending on your location you might be thinking “so are avocados” but at least they can be grown!  Yes, it’s actually quite easy, but that’s another story.

Avocados are known to stimulate hair growth and prevent hair loss. This amazing fruit not only works as a shampoo and conditioner, but you can improve your hair by eating it as well. Olive oil has been used for centuries as a natural hair conditioner, strengthening it and leaving a shine. Banana helps tame frizz while honey smells great and works to soften the hair. Eggs are a great source of iron and are also high in protein. Aren’t we underestimating these simple everyday ingredients? This might require a little more work, but hey, it’s worth it! Try out this nutrition-packed recipe – an amazing avocado, banana, olive oil, egg and honey mask.

    Ingredients
    • 1 avocado ripe
    • 1/2 banana
    • 1 egg
    • 2 tbsp Olive Oil extra virgin
    • honey
    Ingredients
    • 1 avocado ripe
    • 1/2 banana
    • 1 egg
    • 2 tbsp Olive Oil extra virgin
    • honey
      Instructions
      1. Peel the avocado and cut into cubes. You can either blend or use a fork to mash into a thick paste (I had to use a blender since my avocado wasn’t ripe and still hard).
      2. Mash banana and mix with olive oil, then add the avocado paste.
      3. In another bowl whisk an egg, add 1 tablespoon of honey, and combine with the rest of the mixture. Blend or mix well for a fine texture.
      4. Make sure to wet your hair first, and then apply the conditioner. Massage into the tips of your hair, avoiding the scalp if you have sensitive hair. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.
