Method

  • Thoroughly combine 1 egg yolk and ½ mashed avocado
  • Add enough coconut milk to make a smooth mixture
  • Massage into scalp and rinse.

Why avocado and coconut work

Coconut and avocado are loaded with antioxidants that protect the hair. Their oils penetrate the hair shaft to protect and seal the cuticle.

Precautions

If you have a latex allergy, do not use avocado as a topical application. If any rash or skin irritation results, discontinue use immediately.
