Decadent Deep Conditioner

1 small avocado

3 (heaping) tbsp mayo (can also substitute one egg)

1 (heaping) tbsp honey

1/4 cup coconut milk

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

My favorite beauty use for avocado’s green goodness has got to be as part of a deep conditioning treatment for my hair. Whether you are natural or relaxed, it will provide deeply penetrating moisture and protein that will leave your hair soft for days while increasing the strength and elasticity. If you have shorter hair or hair that isn’t super thick, you can halve the recipe. Best mixed in a blender and left on under plastic cap for at least one hour.
