Dry Hair Relief

This is a remedy for dry hair that you have probably come across before in your searches for what to do inexpensively and naturally for your parched tresses. It is a simple, yet effective mixture of items that may already be in your kitchen or that can easily be bought at the store. Banana, Avocado, and a touch of olive oil are mashed to create a deep conditioner that is to be massaged into hair and allowed to do its thing for at least ten minutes.

I have used this dry hair remedy/concoction many times, and it is so very moisturizing. I recommend it to anyone, and especially to those of us that have dry, curly, or kinky hair. A vinegar rinse is also a great idea after this treatment if you would like some extra shine.

Dry Hair Remedy:
1/2 of a ripe avocado
1/2 of a ripe banana
1/2 tablespoon olive oil

Mash ingredients thoroughly together. Massage into hair and scalp and cover with a towel that you don't mind getting dirty. Allow to sit for at least ten minutes. Wash with a gentle shampoo (one that does not contain sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate or anything that sounds like this). Run your regular conditioner through hair if you like. Enjoy!

P.S.-If you have truly damaged hair, a good trim is most often necessary!
