This week there was an abundance of big, pretty, fresh Avocados on sale – 7 for $1.00! Perfect for this rich, deep conditioning powerhouse.
Honestly, this deep conditioner started out as guacamole years ago, and then I realized halfway through adding ingredients, I don’t like guacamole! I prefer to eat avocados in chocolate pudding but that’s a different recipe…
I added the castor oil because it’s the only oil my scalp will tolerate during deep conditioning. My hair loves oils, my scalp – not so much. Coconut oil is also great but play around and see what you like.
Don’t have avocados?
Use fresh, ripe bananas (overly ripe is best…easier to mash and wash out), sweet potatoes, or canned pumpkin. All are ultra conditioning and work better than any store bought conditioner you will find…and you can eat it if you’re really hungry.
Add 1 tablespoon of avocado oil to the mix. NaturallyCurly.com has a great article on the benefits of avocado oil. You can also find Avocado Oil in most grocery stores (Hi Health has it) and online.
Creamy Avocado Deep Conditioner
1 ripe avocado (or 1/2 cup of mashed goodness)
2 to 3 tablespoons honey
1 tsp castor oil (or coconut oil)
1/4 cup aloe vera juice
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Add honey, avocado, and lemon juice to your mixing bowl or blender.
Blend for 1 to 2 minutes or until the conditioner reaches your desired consistency. Slowly add in aloe vera juice.
Increase the aloe vera juice if your conditioner is too thick. Add more avocado if your mix is too thin.
For Over-the-Top Lavish Abundance (and if you have an aloe vera plant) use the natural gel that comes from the leaves of the plant. You may also substitute coconut milk for aloe vera juice for an even creamier creamy avocado conditioner!
