the awesomest avocado hydrator recipe

This past weekend, we had a spa day for Abbie and her friend. All the things we did were homemade and all natural. It was super fun. This recipe is one for your hair and was my all time fav. It deeply conditions your hair and helps prevent breakage. The recipe was developed by a hair studio in Beverly Hills California. I could feel the difference in the girls hair as soon as I rinsed it out. You HAVE to try it!

1/2 ripe avocado
1 ripe banana
1 tsp plain yogurt
1 Tbsp wheat germ oil
1 tsp aloe vera gel
1 Tbsp water


Put the ingredients in a blender and blend until pasty. Once it's all combined, use your hands to spread the mask on your hair starting at the roots.

Sit back and relax for 45 minutes. Then, rinse away and lightly shampoo.

Let me know if you try it.

Oh... by the way... THIS little town we live in does not have wheat germ oil anywhere to be found, so I left it out. Also, we didn't have aloe vera gel so I skipped that. It still worked like a charm. The next time I get to the big city, I'm going to search for wheat germ oil to do the real deal.
