Scary Hair Repair Mask

Revive dry tresses with this DIY hair mask.

Scary hair beware! This super simple, spa-sparked recipe banishes lackluster tresses with just two ingredients. The avocado gives hair a surge of nourishing vitamins, essential fatty acids and phytochemicals. Whole eggs in the mayo give hair a powerful punch of protein while the oils give it a long tall drink of hydration. Go for the natural mayonnaise if you can for higher quality ingredients (plus, it makes your tuna salad so much healthier!).

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 ripe avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

Here’s what you do:

In a small bowl, mash up the avocado with a fork. Add the mayo and blend until the mixture is smooth. Apply the mask to dry hair, starting at the scalp and working it through to the ends. Cover your head with a plastic shower cap and wait at least 20 minutes. Rinse, shampoo and lightly condition hair. While shampooing, give yourself a scalp and lower neck massage to seal in the nourishing vibes. And for an extra dose of shine, use bottled water for the final rinse.
