9. Avocado, Banana and Olive Oil

Banana is rich in natural oils, potassium, carbohydrates and vitamins which help soften the hair and prevent dryness.

  • Blend 1 ripe banana, 1 ripe avocado and 1 tablespoon of olive oil together.
  • Apply it evenly to damp hair and scalp.
  • Massage it in with circular motions.
  • Wear a shower cap and leave on for 15-20 minutes.
  • Wash off the application; shampoo and condition as usual.
  • Apply once a week for shiny and lustrous hair.

10. Avocado, Coconut Milk and Almond Oil Hair Mask

Nutrient-rich almond oil has high amounts of vitamins, monosaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids which help to keep the hair nourished and hydrated.

  • In a blender, add pulp of 1 avocado, 2 cups of coconut milk and 3 tablespoons of almond oil.
  • Blend until it turns into a smooth paste.
  • Apply the mask liberally to hair and scalp.
  • Cover hair with a shower cap.
  • Leave the hair mask on for 20-30 minutes.
  • Rinse with water; follow up with shampoo and conditioner.
  • Apply twice a month for best visible results.

11. Avocado, Honey and Olive Oil

Honey is a natural humectant that helps to seal moisture within the hair shaft. This prevents stripping of excessive oils that lead to dryness of hair.

  • Blend 1 chopped avocado, 2 tablespoons honey and 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • Apply on hair and scalp with your fingers.
  • Wear a shower cap. Blow dry at low heat on the shower cap for about 15 minutes. Or else you can also sit out in the sun for 30-45 minutes.
  • Wash your hair with cool water and a mild shampoo.
  • Repeat once a week for best results.

Note: You can also add 2-3 drops of lavender essential oil to the ingredients in the blender.
