I love mixing stuff! Whether it’s experimenting with ingredients like coconut milk and avocados for delectable hair treatments, or mixing ingredients like essential oils and sugar to make yummy body scrubs- I love mixing things! And today I’d like to focus on hair.

Below is one of my favorite homemade deep conditioning treatments. Here’s the recipe:

  • ¼ cup of Coconut Milk (full fat)
  • ¼ cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 small avocado

Mix all ingredients in blender under low speed until smooth. Then place on hair and allow to sit for 30 minutes. You can do a more intense deep conditioning treatment by using a heat cap.
After time has elapsed, thoroughly rinse hair, and voila! Your hair will be soft, moisturized, and I’ve even found that this recipe also helps elongate my curls!

So ladies, are any of you mixologists?
