DIY Avocado Mask for Dry Brittle Hair

Mix one avocado, one tablespoon honey, and two tablespoons olive oil. Leave it on for 20 minutes, then rinse and shampoo. For a variation, blend the avocado with one tablespoon each of lemon juice and aloe gel, and one teaspoon sea salt. The avocado contains vitamin e which acts as an antioxidant, and plays a key role in healthy skin and hair. The olive oil gives for more shine and less frizz, less dandruff, and extra softness.  Honey is a humectant which means it retains water, therefore adding and retaining moisture in the hair, and smoothing the cuticle for a shiny, more healthy look.
