There's some hair in my guacamole!
Hello my beauties!
Do I have a beauty recipe for you! I call it Guacamole Head, because it's guacamole that you put on your head. Obviously.
This hair mask was invented due to food that was slowly bordering on going bad, so instead of throwing it out, I decided to make use of it. Waste not, want not... right.
So without further ado...
Guacamole Head, hair mask
Ingredients: Coconut Oil - Avocado - Peach
BENEFITS: Coconut Oil is good for just about anything. No really. I encourage you to eat it, wear it, use it, but only if you really want to. It's one of my go-to health and beauty products, and so delicious!
Coconut oil brims with healthy goodness and is known to treat Alzheimer's, it prevents heart disease and high blood pressure, reduces inflammation and arthritis, improves energy and endurance, helps with digestion, improves skin issues, teeth and gum issues, and when applied to your crown, expect to see a reduction in dandruff and dry hair. Plus, it encourages hair growth!
Avocado is a fruit, and a magical one at that! Avocados are native to central Mexico and grow on trees, in pairs, that resemble a man's testicles. In Aztec lore, they are considered a fertility fruit, because when you eat it, all sorts of magic ensues! Oh la la!
The fruit is full of vitamins and minerals that does a body good, and when applied to your hair and scalp, it is known to fight hair loss, be a dry scalp treatment, and makes you beautiful. Yes, please!
Peaches -- I love peaches, eating them, wearing them, smelling like them... but did you know that these sweet peaches can also prevent hair loss too?! Well, add them to the mix, because you gotta get dirty to get clean! You know what I mean?!!
Peaches are chock full of vitamins, A & C, and antioxidants which when eaten or applied directly to your hair or face will prevent dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles, and protect against hair loss.
Directions: I eyeball everything, meaning I attempt to make enough of the right amount for my beauty needs. I have long hair, so obviously more product is needed, but please remember less is more, so again, eyeball it to get the perfect amount needed for YOU!
Mix the ingredients in a bowl, make guacamole, and apply directly to your dry hair, wrap it in a plastic cap, and be patient.
I won't lie, it will get everywhere, but no problem, what's good for the hair is good for the skin, so rub the lotion on your skin, or else you get the hose again. (Silence of the Lambs)
Patience: 15 minutes - ?? Be a guacamole head for at least 15 minutes, I do more, but it all depends on your patience. Listen, Rome wasn't built in a day, so take the time to pamper yourself and be good to yourself, because damn it, you're worth it! Helllooo?!!
Once you feel the right amount of time has passed, head to the hose (shower) and wash it out, using your regular shampoo (may have to do it twice, I did, remember, long hair) Get it squeaky clean, so clean your hair squeaks, that's the audio cue (ding!) to know you are done! Then style as normal!
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... Waoahhhhhhh!
The result is fabulous hair, so silky and smooth, you can't stop touching it. Even Buddha approves!
Let me know if you decide to try it, I would love to hear your thoughts, I welcome them with gusto! Take the time and make the time to pamper and enjoy yourselves, daily, you deserve it!
Be Fabulous, my fellow Earthlings, because life is too short to be anything but!
Thanks for stopping by for a spell and I wish you well!
