3. Avocado, Coconut Milk and Olive Oil Hair Mask
The creamy avocado is one of the most powerful superfoods for good health. But avocado can also be used in hair masks for shiny lustrous locks! Combined with two other powerful frizz-fighting ingredients, this hair mask is excellent for dry frizzy hair. This hair mask contains moisture-rich ingredients that sound yummy too! Look at the benefits of avocado, coconut milk, and olive oil for hair:
- 1 small ripe avocado
- 1/2 cup fresh coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
|Ingredient||Benefits for Hair|

- Wait for 15 minutes before rinsing off the mask thoroughly. You may shampoo and condition using organic products.
- Use a ripe avocado so it is easier to puree. Freezing or thawing the avocado before use also works great.
- Make sure to blend the avocado until you get a lump-free smoothie. This is important—if you have lumps in your mixture, you will have a hard time rinsing off and you might end up with tiny avocado lumps stuck to your hair.
- Don't just smear the hair mask onto your scalp and locks. Take time to massage the mixture deep into your scalp in gentle circular motions using both hands. Slather a generous amount of hair mask onto your hair ends where the most damage occurs.
