Hair Archives: DIY Avocado Yogurt Hair Mask for Natural Hair


Hey naturals! I decided that it has been a while since I applied a protein treatment and decided to redo this one. BUT a natural on my Facebook page gave me the idea to add an avocado to it. I have been using avocado oil for some time now, so I decided to give a whole one a try! Here's the recipe for my avocado yogurt hair mask for natural hair.


Ingredients/tools:
  • 1 small ripe Hass avocado (dark green-brown in color, not black)
  • 2/3 of a cup (or 5-6 ounces) of yogurt (full fat yogurt is preferred)
  • 1 tablespoon  of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of oil (I used extra virgin olive oil)
  • Optional - 1/2 cup of aloe vera juice
  • Bowl
  • Spoon, fork & knife
  • Optional - Blender/Mixer
Benefits:
-Honey is packed with vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, 
sulphur, iron, zinc and vitamins B1, B2, B3, which aid in hair growth

-Natural oils make hair softer, shinier, and stronger
-The lactic acid in yogurt will smooth and hydrate your strands

-Avocados are full of healthy fats and are excellent for dry hair and skin
-Aloe vera acts as a natural conditioning agent that restores the hair’s sheen, luster, and shine.


Directions:
1. Cut and pit your avocado. Scoop out the filling and mash with a fork
2. Using your spoon mix in the yogurt
3. Add the honey and oil then mix
4. You can stop here, but to get rid of the chunks you can put the mixture in a blender/mixer. Since it is really thick I added 1/2 cup of aloe vera juice and it turned out really smooth

Application:
Apply it to your hair in sections, smoothing it through little by little. Apply a shower/conditioning cap then a towel/head-wrap/hat or you can sit under the dryer. I like to leave it in for an hour then rinse. This can be used as a prepoo treatment on dry hair, or as a deep conditioner after washing.
The mixture is sitting in my hair as I make this blog, BUT as soon as I upload the application video to Youtube I will add it here.
Please let me know what you think! Have you ever tried avocado or yogurt in your hair?
