Hi Lemons, Avocados & the Bay readers! My name is Amanda, and I'm super excited to borrow Tammy's blog for a day while she is in Italy! That lucky, lucky girl...I can't wait to see all the great food she has been eating over there! I blog over at Amanda K. by the Bay (we coastal people are obviously very proud) where I share lots of recipes, everyday style, beauty stuff and some Pacific Northwest-y things. Come say hi, you can find me on Facebook and of course, Bloglovin!
1/2 ripe avocado
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey
2.) Add avocado and use a fork to mash and incorporate with the honey and oil. Continue to mash and stir until well combined and smooth (it's okay if they are still some small lumps of avocado). 3.) Comb through hair to detangle (hair should be dry). Starting with the ends, saturate hair with mixture. Once the ends of your hair are covered, part hair down the middle and place mask on the scalp, working it through the hair. Cover the hair around your hairline then work the mask all throughout your hair.
4.) Once all your hair is covered, pull hair up into a pony tail or bun. Let mask sit for about 30-60 minutes.
5.) Once you're ready to wash it out, place shampoo on hair and begin to lather before getting it wet. Water and oil don't mix well and getting it wet first will make it harder to remove. Lather shampoo through hair, then add water and rinse. Shampoo again to ensure all the oil has been removed. Follow with conditioner.
