Avocado Treatment for Frizzy Hair

Blog Pics 024

I’m one of those people with the good fortune to have curly hair, and most of the time I love it.  But these summer months are hard for us curly haired folks.  The humidity plus the scorching heat creates a frizzy, dry mess that is usually pulled back in a ponytail or tucked up under a hat.  I went in search of a CENTSIBLE solution that would tame that frizz and leave my hair soft and fabulous!  I was a little skeptical about this treatment, but after trying it, I was so impressed with the results that I threw all of my hats…well…back in the closet.  I mean, let’s not get carried away…we all still have bad hair days, right ladies?

Avocado Hair Treatment

Wash your hair as you normally would, but skip the conditioner.  Towel dry your hair, and apply this mixture:

1/2 of an avocado, finely mashed

2 Tbsp mayonnaise

I started at the tips of my hair and worked my way to the scalp (if your scalp is oily be careful not to apply the mixture directly on your scalp).  Turn your head upside down and wrap a plastic bag around your hair, then wrap it in a towel (you could skip the bag if you don’t mind having avocado and mayo on your towel).  Let it soak in for 15 minutes, then rinse out with cool water.  Style as usual and enjoy your lustrous, shiny, frizz-free locks!  Use every 2 weeks.

*Just a side note: if you hate the smell of mayo, leave it out and just use avocado…the smell was pretty strong and the mayo only serves to moisturize so you can leave it out if it bothers you

COCONUT OIL AS A HAIR CONDITIONER

The other day, I found myself sitting in my much too beautiful hairdresser’s chair, listening to her as she chopped away at my somewhat exhausted locks. She said something similar to this “You have to buy this ridiculously expensive conditioner if you want your hair to look even remotely close to as fabulous as mine.” Ok, that’s not what she said but it’s close ….Alright, its not her fault she’s gorgeous, or that my hair is tired…or even that hair care products have become the pirates of our day!! So I gave her some lame story about how I’ll be getting it next time, left the salon and began my search for a CENTSIBLE way to handle this problem!

Here is the CENTSIBLE solution girls….organic coconut oil!

I bought a large jar of coconut oil at Walmart of all places!

It cost me $4.39 for 64oz …now that’s centsible!

Here’s how you do it:

1. Scoop 3-4 tablespoons of the oil into a bowl (its a solid below 77 degrees)

2. Microwave for 20 seconds ( just to make sure it won’t burn you)

3. Apply to damp hair ( I like doing it in the shower, its less messy)

4. Pin up, under a shower cap and leave it on for at least 1 hour (longer is even better)

5. Wash, rinse, repeat (wash it twice to get it all out)

6.Watch all the other girls be jealous of your gorgeous, shiny, soft, yet CENTSIBLE hair….shhhhhhhhhhhhh its our secret!
