How to Combat Dry Natural Hair



The one thing I hate the most is dry brittle hair. Not moisturizing your hair well enough can cause brittleness and breakage. I struggle with dry hair because I don't like to put a lot of things in my hair. I have learned that oils alone do not moisturize, so about once a month I do an at home avocado mask to restore moisture to my hair if i feel its a little dried out.

2 Small avocados or 1 large one (depending on how thick your hair is)
2 tablespoons of vegetable glycerin
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil or both
2 tablespoons of jojoba oil

I put all my ingredients in a blender and until there are no lumps. Then I apply it to damp hair. I proceed to shampoo and deep condition afterward. You absolutely must shampoo the avocado out of your hair. This should really help because avocados are packed with vitamins, minerals and fats that will restore moisture to your hair.
