Avocado Banana Hair Mask for Dry Hair

The Avocado Banana Hair Mask

This is a fruit based hair mask. The fruits used are avocado and banana.

Avocado is high in healing nutrients (phytochemicals, antioxidant, amino acids, and minerals) which promotes hair growth, nourishes and strengthens hair; most important, it heals damaged hair ends. (VERY important factor for me!)

Grapeseed oil is high in linoleic acid (omega-6 fatty acid) that combats dryness and sealing the moisture.

Rosemary essential oil is broadly used to prevent hair loss, but honestly, I use this only because I don’t want to smell like walking banana or avocado!

* You can replace the oils with something else that you are more suited – you will need to look them up and experiment *

I had a lecture to attend yesterday – and I do hate classes on weekend. After class, I went to a shopping mall to buy a few more tops;…
