When it’s winter, taking extra care of your hair is just as important as taking care of your skin, because it too, just like you skin, can dry up when the temperature drops. And dry hair can only lead to damaged hair- nothing to be too merry about, now is it?
One of the best things you can do to prevent or even repair dry damaged hair is to apply a moisturizing hair mask. So check out this simple DIY moisturizing hair mask recipe that you can create right in your kitchen. Not only will it help moisturize your hair but it will actually help lock all the good stuff in.
Moisturizing Hair Mask
What You Need:
- 1 Ripe Avocado
- ¼ Cup Of Milk
- 3 Drops of Argan Oil
What To Do:
Making this hair mask is super simple. All you really need are the ingredients, a blender, and a knife and spoon to cut open the avocado and take out the “meat” of the fruit. Before you put the avocado in the blender, it’s a good idea to mash the chunks up for a “smoother” transition. Whiz away until you have a creamy type of paste. Then add the other two ingredients, the milk and argan oil, then blend some more to make sure everything is mixed well. Done.
How To Apply:
Start from the roots and make your way down to the tips. Comb through until your whole head is soaked in this moisturizing avocado hair mask. Then wrap you hair up in a shower cap and let it sit for a good 20 minutes or so. You could either “sit” yourself, put up your feet, and do some relaxing or you could actually spend this time to do some unfinished chores.
When the time is up, rinse thoroughly with warm if not cool water. Remember, hot showers in the winter are a big no no. They may feel great, but the heat actually plays a big role in drying up your skin and hair. Make sure to get rid of any residue by coming through with your fingers.
- Another winter hair care tip: NEVER EVER leave the house with wet hair. Blow dryers can be damaging if used all the time, but in the winter, they are actually your hair and your health’s best friend. You wouldn’t wanna have a bad case of the sniffles come Christmas, now would you? But still, if you have the time to spare, air drying is still much preferred.
