DIY Home-made hair mask:
1 T olive oil
½ of an avocado smooshed up
1 T mayonnaise
2 T plain greek yogurt
2 T honey
1 T egg whites
5-8 drops of lavender essential oil. If your scalp is a little flaky, add some Tea Tree essential oil too.
Beat one egg white with a hand blender or wire whisk until soft peaks form. In a small bowl, stir together all ingredients except egg white and essential oils. Fold in the egg whites and add essential oil.
Apply this hair masque to clean, wet hair. Massage into the hair and scalp so your entire head is covered and saturated with the masque. Pile your hair on top of your head. Use a couple of pieces of large plastic wrap and wrap the hair and scalp tightly or use a plastic grocery bag to slip over your head, fit it tightly to your head and use the bag handles to securely tie it down at the base of your neck. Sit in sun or stay in a steamy shower for 15–20 minutes for best results. Rinse hair thoroughly with slightly cool water. If necessary, follow with your favorite conditioning rinse.
