This tropical conditioner is all natural and will leave your hair feeling very soft.
1 peeled and mashed avocado
1 cup coconut milk or cream
I suggest using Chaokoh Coconut Milk for a few reasons. First, it’s super cheap at around $1 a can and it’s much thicker than most brands and has a uniform creamy texture — what most kinky girls like in their deep conditioners, thus you get a milk and “cream” in one!
Combine mashed avocado with some coconut milk in a small bowl. Heat in microwave for approx. 45 seconds. Stir. Test temperature. Massage mixture into hair. Wrap hair in a hot towel or cover with shower cap for 20 to 30 minutes. Shampoo and rinse out.
For deeper conditioning put a hot, damp towel around your head over the shower cap (which you can use saran wrap in place of).
The deep treatment should be applied from root to end for normal hair and half-way through hair for oily hair. Tor normal hair, once the treatment is applied, it should be separated into sections and massaged into the scalp.
In earlier times, avocado pulp was used as a hair pomade to stimulate hair growth. Its oil is still used today in several hair and cosmetic products. Avocado oil penetrates hair follicles with emollient oils, nourishing vitamins, protein and amino acids to promote healthy sheen and fuller, stronger hair. The mask offers a hydrating effect that is perfect for warding off the effects of summer heat.
Why coconut milk?
Coconut milk contains proteins, which strengthen hair and can help to minimize breakage. It also has properties which protect hair and scalp from UV rays.
Using coconut milk for improving hair growth is another simple home remedy for hair loss that some claim to offer results. It serves to nourish the hair and promote the growth of new hair. In addition, it keeps the existing hair in a healthy condition.
If you can’t get your hands on coconut milk, you can substitute the natural coconut for one of the coconut based conditioners below (it’s highly recommenced that you do try this mask with pure coconut milk).
