I've been wanting to try this hair mask out for a long time but just never got around to doing it but since I've got so much free time now *especially with the bf on his boys trip* I decided it's now or never! I actually got this mask from bubzbeauty here. I'll write the instructions but it's basically what she says in the video.
~ ingredients ~
Half an avocado
One egg yolk
One teaspoon of olive oil
First cut open half the avocado, remove the seed and scoop out half of it onto a plate. The mash it up with a fork and I mean MASH it, I guess you can blend it if you want for best results lol
Then put in one egg yolk.
After you put in the egg yolk you will notice that the texture changes to a more paste like one.
Pour in the one teaspoon of olive oil and mix well.
Time to put it on your hair!
To be honest it was really hard to put on my hair, make sure you work in fairly small sections. I left the hair mask on for 20mins before I went to wash it off. When you wash it off the water turns yellowish green! Make sure you shampoo well and condition your hair as normal, when I was washing out my hair I noticed these little white things in my hair, I presume it had to do with the egg yolk but it washed out as soon as I put in conditioner.
For the egg whites I decided to just use it as a face mask. I whisk it with a fork until I see bubbles and apply on my face. This mask tightens up your pores and makes your skin sooo soft. Make sure you apply to to clean skin and when the mask gets tight (you can't smile!) then you know it's time to wash it off. My mum taught me this mask when I was high school but I didn't give two hoots about my skin back then ><
~ snack ~
This was my snack afterwards hahahaha The other half of the avocado and some instant miso soup! I know a lot of people think avocado is so fattening but it has good fats and it's best to eat it raw!
The hair mask did make my hair look healthier, smoother and softer but that could also be because I actually air dried my hair when I would normally just blow dry it.I *might* make it again if I ever have the time but the results just aren't amazing enough for me to do it on a regular basis. My hair returned to it's normal hay like texture the very next day =(
The egg white mask was amazing! After I washed it off and applied moisturizer my skin felt soooo soft and smooth! I will definitely try and do this mask weekly, it's amazing!
I think I'm going to try bubzbeauty's sugar green tea scrub next =)
Till next time!
