Avocado & Banana Hair Mask!
what’s in it & why:
-1 Ripe Avocado: Avocados are a rich source of Vitamins A, E, K, C, B6, potassium, protein, copper, oleic acid and folate. They help to leave your hair moisturized, extremely soft, and shiny!!! Regular use of avocado can be used as part of a treatment program for hair that seems as if it is not growing.
-1 Ripe Banana: bananas are rich in natural oils, vitamins, potassium and carbohydrates. It helps to soften the hair and protects the hair’s natural elasticity; this makes it a perfect ingredient for preventing split ends and breakage. Additionally, banana can control dandruff, encourages hair growth, and gives the hair a natural shine.
-Honey: Honey is a healing agent. It is antibacterial and anti-fungal and composed of nutrients like minerals-magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, iron and phosphate), vitamins (such as B1, B2, C, B6, B5, B3), trace elements (like copper, iodine, and zinc) as well as amino acids. Honey gives hair sheen and adds moisture to hair preparations. Honey also allows the hair to retain water and moisture, allowing it to hydrate hair while providing vitamins and minerals. Since honey is able to hold on to water, it is a great way to treat hair that is damaged and dry.
-Olive Oil: What olive oil does is to re-hydrate the hair by penetrating the shaft and protects the hair by sealing in the moisture. Overtime, a consistent use of olive oil can make a big difference to not only the appearance of the hair but the tensile strength of it too. Olive oil enhances sheen by coating the outer layer of your hair shaft. It allows the little scales that are along your hair shaft to be locked down pretty tightly, giving the hair a smooth, shiny appearance
-Rose Hip Seed Oil: Rosehip seed oil is a natural oil extracted from rose hip seeds. Rosehip seed oil has a high concentration of vitamin A which makes it great for hair care. Rosehip seed oil is moisturizing and nourishing for hair because it is a relatively light-weight oil that absorbs easily.
-Jamaican Black Castor Oil: Castor oil provides a moisturizing effect to hair and scalp, because of its penetrative qualities castor oil does not only coat the hair strand but enters the cuticle imparting its numerous minerals and nutrients thus guaranteeing long lasting hydration and nutrition to hair and scalp. Castor oil also thickens and promotes hair growth even in places where hair would not grow before.
-Shea Butter: Shea butter provides moisture to dry and damaged hair from the roots to the tips, leaving it healthy and shiny. Because it’s rich in vitamins A and E, shea butter soothes dryness, repairs breakage, and mends split ends. Shea butter absorbs quickly and completely into the scalp without clogging pores, leaving a greasy residue, or causing a buildup of oil or dandruff.
