The following is a how-to video depicting me trying the Avocado Deep conditioner recipe posted in the Coco and Creme “Avocados For Healthy Hair” article.
Peel, seed, and mash 1 avocado and add 1 cup of coconut milk. Combine the ingredients together and mash until the mixture is smooth and thick.
Again, I strongly suggest that you use a mixer for this or you will have bits and pieces of avocado in your hair that will take forever to rinse out (I used a hand mixer on the video but next time I will use a blender). I also added grapeseed oil and honey to my mixture.
After mixing, smooth the mixture through your hair and wait about 10-15 minutes (you can also sit with a plastic cap on as well), then rinse off, making your final rinse with cool water.
Aside from the bits of avocado left in my hair, due to the fact that I didn’t use a blender, the avocado deep conditioner left my hair feeling very soft and moisturized. I tried the treatment before I tried the henna treatment—so you can see my old gray streak.
