Avocado and Honey Hair Conditioning Treatment

Credit goes to
Is your hair feeling a little dry or looking completely dull? Then here's a simply homemade DIY recipe that will restore life into your hair, and  bring it back to a healthy state.  Our hair and body tend to benefit dramatically from using raw and organic ingredients rather than products loaded with toxic chemicals since they are in their most potent form.  Avocados in particular have always been a fovorite of mine not only because they are so yummy but also because of their nutritional properties. Avocados are loaded with protein, antioxidants, minerals and healthy fats, all of which are vital for promoting healthy skin and hair. And besides, it's always readily available. Raw honey acts as a natural humectant and has antimicrobial properties. Honey also contains enzymes that hydrates the skin and hair, making it an awesome addition to DIY skin and hair care recipes.  When combined with Olive Oil, it's 'the' perfect recipe for overall healthy hair since Olive Oil  is also a powerhouse of healthy fats and has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. If you suffer with dandruff or itchy scalp, Olive oil is  awesome for remedying this condition. 

For the actual recipe, here's what you will need:

1 medium avocado
1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Manuka or Raw Organic Honey


Simply combine all ingredients in a small glass bowl, making sure the avocado is completely mashes. Gently massage the mixture using circular motions into your hair and scalp. Leave on for approximately 20-30 minutes. Rinse and style as usual.

Oh, how I enjoy feeding my skin and hair with raw organic ingredients.

Your hair will be saying thank you with this recipe. Enjoy!
