I love Bri from SmartistaBeauty not only for her great beats and fantastic editing skills but because she really does some informative videos.
I am in the market for all things Avocado and since I have a surplus of them and my hair loves protein why not make a deep conditioner* right?
Typically my search for a great recipe starts on Youtube and this recipe I liked because it included Avocado, it is considered a mild protein treatment, it has moisturizing properties and it is great for fine and color treated hair.
My hair is not colored or bleached but I treat it as such because of how fine my strands are. Well let’s get into it shall we, what will you need?
1. One avocado
2. Coconut oil* – two tablespoons or enough for your hair
3. Cheap conditioner – She used the Trader Jo’s brand which is an awesome conditioner by the way!
4. Castor oil – two to three table spoons
5. 3 Drops of peppermint oil*
Here is the thing about this recipe, it is great for your scalp, because the peppermint oil* promotes growth, the castor oil heals the strands, the coconut oil* is all around magical (growth, strength and repair), and the Avocado gives your hair strength and moisture.
Blend all the ingredients in a small blender until you get a paste. When you apply the paste to your hair be very deliberate, sometimes we make great conditioners and we do not get all of our hair covered with the conditioner.
Once you have your hair thoroughly covered then put a plastic bag over it and sit under a hooded dryer* for 45 minutes.
I promise you this is the ultimate deep conditioner and if you do this weekly you will eliminate dryness, whether your hair is fine, color treated, relaxed, low porosity or high porosity.
If you need a deep conditioner* for this weekend, definitely try this one! Check out Bri and her awesome video:
