Hello ladies!

Here is a simple, nutritious fruit that anyone can add to both their diet and beauty regimen.

Avocados aren’t only great for facial masks, but they can also be used to perfect your at-home conditioning experience. Every now and then we like to treat ourselves to something special, so I think this fruit would be a great natural way to enhance your staple conditioners-or create your own!

Summer is coming up- and I don’t know about you, but I will be co-washing my hair (washing with conditioner) about every other day when the heat is on! I even found some great recipes, along with some great information on the fruit’s benefits, at HUB pages.com

Here goes:

The avocado is native to Central America and considered by many to be an almost perfect food, full of potassium, Vitamin A and rich in antioxidants

. Add to that anti-fungal and antibiotic properties and you’ve got yourself one glorious fruit with talents galore. So, it’s no wonder that people from all over the world, have had remarkable success in using these magical properties. Problems such as digestive and circulatory disorders, difficulty in softening rough itchy skin and the sometimes annoying painful rashes are all added bonuses when soothed properly with avocado. The amazing avocado is therefore, exceptionally moisturizing and luxuriously effective when used in scalp treatments.

When choosing the best avocados, opt for the the ones that are brighter in color, which translates into the highest beta-carotene. The avocado is an exceptional natural emollient and one of the best ingredients you can utilize when creating the perfect homemade hair mask.

In the article, there was also a list of recipes that can help you incorporate avocados into your beauty routine.

My personal favorite from the bunch?

I’d like to try the Coconut-Avocado hair mask

All you need to do is mix in a ripe avocado with 4 ounces of Coconut Milk, leave on for 15 minutes, then wash and go!
