For us women, few things are more relaxing and invigorating than a trip to the hairdresser for an extreme makeover. Unfortunately, it is not often that we can get to a hair spa. So why not start taking care of your hair at home by yourself? 

With this in mind, I’m including a recipe for a hair mask, which is super easy to make and protects your strands from damage caused by hair dryers, flat irons, the sun and the wind.

Here’s what you need:  

  • 1 ripe avocado (for moisture and growth)
  • 1/4 cup blood orange olive oil (smells fantastic; will help strengthen and moisturize)

Simply blend the avocado and olive oil in a blender till smooth. A lot of hair masks suggest coating your whole mane, but we found that it made our tresses too oily. Just apply the mask to the lower half of your hair. Then wrap it a towel and wait 30 minutes. Rinse, shampoo, condition and you are ready to go.
