The avocado hair mask is a beauty routine for your hair to look healthy without even using chemicals. I say this because I am using the avocado hair mask for almost a year now, and the results are amazing.
An avocado hair mask can give your hair the top benefits that your hair needs the most. Well, your hair is not different from mine and others. Our hair needs to look healthy, yes, but we need to provide nutrients for healthy growing hair, revitalize, and moisturizer.
Before I discovered the avocado hair mask, I used different treatments, and it costs a lot. So that is why I decided to go over natural remedies for my hair treatment. There are many suggestions and trials and errors that I made.
Eventually, I chose to use avocado for my hair treatment. At first, you will not get used to it, but when you see the results, you will get addicted to using an avocado hair mask.
The Benefits of Avocado Hair Mask
Promotes Growth of Hair
Since avocados are rich with vitamins B and E, which helps our hair’s cellular level to protect and strengthen it, these vitamins are essential to prevent hair loss and increase hair growth. It also strengthens our hair and repair damage because of vitamin E. If you will notice some celebrity with their hair that is naturally healthy-looking, well better think that they are using natural ingredients for the hair mask.
Aside from hair growth, you can also see the effect of avocado hair mask with your hair being shiny and bouncy. The original score after using avocado to your hair is the improvement of the texture and appearance of dull and lifeless hair. The avocado nutrients enhance the shine and protect the hair from getting brittle and less likely for breakage over time.
I get it that sometimes stress got in our way to experience excessive dryness of hair. Also, a poor diet affects the looks of the hair. For instance, our scalps tend to flake and cause a massive amount of dullness to coat the hair. To avoid hair dryness, you can use an avocado hair mask. Aside from improving the texture of hair, it helps restore moisture to the scalp and even the inner layer of hair follicles. When this happened, avocado enables protection for your hair and a healthier look.

2 tablespoons manuka honey
You can also add 1 to 3 drops of essential oil for a more glamorous effect.
To make the avocado hair mask, you need to mix the avocado, lemon, olive oil, and honey until you reach the consistency of smoothness and creaminess. Then, apply to your hair and cover it for about 45 minutes maximum. Make sure that you comb your hair to reach the root to ends of your hair. Rinse your hair after the given time.

Other Hair Treatment
Aside from the avocado hair mask, you can also use the following homemade hair treatment. Of course, we will be using natural ingredients for a more natural look of our hair.
Tea has natural ingredients that can make your hair shine naturally. Not only a natural shine and gloss, but the black tea, like an avocado hair mask, also give revitalized shine to your hair.
To make a black tea hair mask, brew some black tea, and let it cool off. When it is lukewarm, pour some tea on your hair and leave for 10 minutes. Afterward, wash your hair and see it shining like a diamond.
When we say eggs, we are talking about the raw eggs. The egg yolk is rich in fats and proteins, which are useful to moisturize your hair. At the same time, the white part of the eggs contains bacteria eating enzymes that remove unwanted oils. I am using egg yolks in some of my beauty routines. But let us focus now on the egg hair mask.
To make a hair mask from eggs, identify if your hair is dry, oily, or average. If it is reasonable, you can use the entire egg—no need to separate the yolks and whites. But if you have dry hair, you can only use the egg yolks, and for oily hair, the egg whites are useful as a treatment.
After taking a bath, blend a half cup of egg, depending on your hair type. Then apply it to your clean and damp hair. If you have more areas to cover, prepare, and add some egg mixtures. Make sure your scalp and entire hair are included with it. Then leave for 20 minutes and rinse with fresh water afterward. Clean your hair with shampoo, so no egg residues remain in your hair. The egg hair mask can be done only once a month.
Dairy Products (Yogurt)
Another food that you can use as a hair mask is the dairy products. The yogurt, for instance, has healing ingredients that can repair damage to your hair. And what is exciting about this is you can apply this for all hair types, especially when you have curly hair. Protein in yogurt can enhance natural curls.
To prepare the yogurt hair mask, get half cup yogurt. Make sure you will use plain yogurt for your hair mask. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water. Then followed by freshwater before applying shampoo as you usually do while taking a bath. Once a week, the treatment of a yogurt hair mask can improve your hair condition and lessen the damage.
Natural lemon juice can relieve your itchy scalp. But never use pure lemon juice to your hair. The level of acidity makes your scalp dry, so you should mix it with oil. In my case, I used olive oil with lemon.
To have a lemon hair mask, mix two tablespoons of each: fresh lemon juice, olive oil, and water. Then apply to your hair while massaging to your scalp. Leave it to your hair for 20 minutes. Afterward, rinse and use shampoo to your hair. The use of this mask can be done every other week.
Fabulous hair comes when excessive oil and grease are not present. To have this kind of fantastic hair, you need the cornmeal for a great source of iron that can generate the growth of your hair cells. When enough iron is in the hair follicles, too much oil is a problem to your hair health.
To have the cornmeal mask, you need tablespoon cornmeal. Unlike other hair treatments, this one should be put into an empty salt or pepper shaker and sprinkle to your dry hair. Make sure it reaches the scalp. After 10 minutes, use a hairbrush that will make the cornmeal out to your scalp.
