Use this easy DIY mask for some full, shiny locks! Just be careful not to add too much lemon as it has the ability to lighten your hair!
1 avocado (ripe) - moisture!
1 Tbs of fresh lemon juice (use a real lemon) - shine!
1 tsp of sea salt (DON’T use table salt) – volume!
1 tsp of aloe juice – silky smooth!
Making The Paste
Step One: Split your avocado in half and mash it up into your bowl using a fork.
Step Two: Cut a lemon in half and squeeze about a tablespoon into the bowl.
Step Three: Add in a teaspoon of sea salt.
Step Four: Lastly add in your aloe gel and stir the mixture using your fork until it looks nice and pasty.
How To Apply The Avocado And Lemon Hair Paste
The first thing you need to do is dampen your hair a little. Make sure it’s not drenched as that will prevent the ingredients from being absorbed properly.
Literally just use your hands and run the paste all through your hair, making sure you don’t miss a spot. It’s going to feel kinda gross, but trust me the final product is so worth it! If you have long hair, you may want to double the recipe to ensure you have enough.
Leave it on for about 30 minutes before washing off with water.
Wait a further 2-3 hours before using shampoo and conditioner so that the ingredients have time to properly absorb into your hair.
