Hair Mask

My hair has been REALLY dry lately. I have been HATING my hair! It looks dry, doesn't curl right, looks like a mess by the time I get to work. It is just UGH! I need to get a trim. I just am trying to hold off until about a week before I leave for my cousin wedding. 

Fitnessista has guest posts for fashion. Recently Meg posted about a Hair Salad. I bought everything this past weekend at the store. At this point I am ready to try anything. 

I took a half avocado, 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mixed it all in a bowl. I trekked off to bathroom to put the gunk in my hair. I put it all through my ends and then covered my entire head. Pieces of avocado were falling and landing around the sink in the bathroom. blech. lol You could feel how thick the mask was on your hair. After awhile it starts to dry and get a little hard. 

I left it on my hair for about 40 minutes. I washed my hair and let it air dry. A normal day if I let it air dry I look like I have an afro.  My hair just had a little frizzy to it. The next day after I styled my hair it finally looked decent! There wasn't any frizzy, the ends didn't look dry and it stayed styled nicely throughout the day!

Unfortunately I forgot to take my daily Sunday picture. Every Sunday I take a picture and send it to my mom & sister. Here is a picture with my hair mask. If you look closely you can see the chunks of avocado. 

I am going to do it again in 2 weeks. Next time I am going to put it on my ends for about 30 minutes and then put the rest of through my hair for about 10 minutes. Try it out and let me know what you think of it!
