Avocados are often used in beauty products for their hydrating and nourishing properties. To me, nothing beats pampering oneself at home with a natural avocado hair treat. This mask is perfect for those with dry scalp or/and dry hair due to the moisturising properties of avocado. The recipe calls for olive oil, but if you have colour-treated hair, you might want to substitute with jojoba or sweet almond oil (Use my affiliate code “WIF026″ for $5 off first order if you are ordering from, as olive oil may lighten hair highlights.

      If your sensitive scalp (e.g. itchiness/dandruff) is due to dryness, you can try this. So far I have only this hair mask recipe, will post more in future :)

    Thanks for this recipe. A hair expert recommends using spinach (blend into a paste) to apply on the scalp. Have you tried it before?
