Homemade Deep Hair Conditioner

As I promised I will be posting tried and tested home made recipes with ingredients you can easily find in your kitchen. Not to mention you save money while getting spectacular results, minus the harsh chemicals. Most of these recipes need to be refrigerated since they don't contain preservatives (-shelf life is approximately 1 week).

Today recipe: "Avocado & Mayo deep conditioner" which will leave your hair soft and shiny.
Avocados contain vitamin B6 & vitamin E, and mayonaisse is loaded with Vitamin K.
As you know Vitamin E is vital for moisturizing and restoring dry or overprocessed hair. It's recommended to use a deep hair conditioner at least 2 times a month.

plain mayonnaise
1/2 an avocado

Instructions:Put together the mayonaise and avocado in a bowl and squish them together with your hands other utensil till the whole mixture looks minty green.
Smooth it all over your hair- all the way to the tips. (If you have oily or fine hair, my hairstylist said to never apply any conditioner on your scalp. Avoid the scalp but apply it to the rest of your hair.) Put on a shower cap or wrap your head with saran wrap and leave it on for 20 minutes.

For deeper conditioning put a hot, damp towel around your head -over the saran wrap.

For really long hair: you only really need deep conditioning at the ends so cut the ingredients in half and apply only to the ends and just wrap them.
