There’s no better time to deep condition your hair than summertime! Use this edible deep conditioning hair mask once a month or more often as needed.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 ripe avocado

Method

In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well to form a paste. Apply the paste to wet hair, working it through from the roots to the ends. Wrap hair in a warm towel or plastic wrap and leave the paste in for 30 minutes. Rinse well with lukewarm water. Do not shampoo or condition the hair afterward. Use once a month.
