Avocado Coconut Oil Hair Mask
My darling daughter was recently in town for a visit. I can’t tell you how much fun it was to introduce her to my new home, the San Francisco Bay area. We had an amazing time and once again, I was reminded what a remarkable young woman she has grown into. I love that at 23, she is into healthy eating and skin care, creates a lot of her own recipes and is a wiz in the kitchen. We hiked, made food together, spent a day in the city and a day at the shore. It was a wonderful visit.
While she loved the heat without humidity, she was less impressed on the toll it had taken on my hair. “Mom, your hair looks a little dry and frizzy”, she informed me one afternoon. From the mouths of babes, right? I couldn’t disagree as I had been noticing the dryness myself. Off to the kitchen we went as I whipped up a great hair mask for both of us. We came up with some wonderful avocado recipes.
Honestly, I knew it would help, but I wasn’t prepared for the transformation these three simple ingredients created! Both Kaia (youngest daughter) and I ended up with hair that was shiny and silky. We both agreed that our hair hasn’t looked this good for months! I made an immediate promise to myself to use this mask at least once a month
