A Beauty Secret

You may be sad to see summer ending so soon, but with the change of seasons comes the change of color. Namely, hair color…from lighter summer colors to darker shades for fall.  Caution: This process can cause dryness to your lovely locks!

To keep your beautiful strands healthy and hydrated, here’s what you need: a blender, half of an avocado, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and a shower cap.

Directions: Blend the avocado with olive oil, apply the mixture to your wet or damp hair, and put on a shower cap.  Leave it on for 20 – 30 minutes, then shampoo and condition. Do it on your damp hair once a week to hydrate to hair.

Otherwise, you can buy avocado oil from a health beauty supply store, and mix it with your favorite conditioner to condition your hair.  As another great option, you can use the oil as your daily hair moisturizer.  The best thing about avocado oil is how it gives your hair shine and keeps it hydrated without weighing it down.
