100% Natural Hair Mask


My hair is curly or, rather, wavy, I would say. The curls disappear the second day after washing and make way for a wave.

My hair is very thin and not voluminous. This makes blow-drying fast (10 minutes for almost dry hair). However, it is delicate: the roots are oily and the ends are dry. I have to take extra precautions with pool/sea water to ensure that it remains silky and shiny.

Twice a year, with the change of season from summer to autumn and winter to spring, I am subject to hair loss. Unfortunately, I do not have a strong hair type, therefore I have to be extra cautious. Thus, this 100% natural homemade hair care is what I find most effective. Last year I tried a nice alternative, but I still prefer this one. Here is the recipe!!

Mask for dry and brittle hair (apply this mask once a week)

1 avocado
4 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons liquid honey
1 egg yolk

Mix all the ingredients with a blender until you obtain a smooth paste, without lumps.

Dampen your hair with hot water, having previously untangled it.

Apply the mask with your fingers. Then cover your hair with a plastic wrap or a warm towel (this allows the mask to be more effective).  Leave it on your hair for 2 hours at least. Then wash and dry.

Note: The avocado may be replaced by bananas.


Step 1 - Crush the avocado

Step 2 - Add the egg yolk

Step 3 - Add honey

Step 4 - Add the olive oil

Step 5 - Mix with the blender to make a creamy texture

      You are welcome, Monica. Try it and you will see how your hair will be shiny, voluminous and, above all, strong. Since this mask is used on a short-term, it is not such a pain to do it.

  6. I like your openness about your hair condition( to me it looks gorgeous). Anyway, the ingredients you've listed are very healthy to the whole of our body, so I presume the mask containing them is very beneficial to hair.

  8. What do you do for the two hours you have it on your hair? Does it drip?

    1. Happy Women's Day, Judy :)

      No, it doesn't drip...The texture is creamy, not liquid and it smells very good. Judy, I clean my house while listening to music... hahaha...

  9. Que receita fantástica!
    E com ingredientes bem fáceis de arranjar! Tenho que experimentar!
    O meu cabelo é fininho, oleoso, mas ondulado e com volume, apesar de tudo...
    Em relação aquele fim de semana no Algarve... aqui ficam as minhas sugestões... se a intenção for estar bem perto da praia... e como acho que uma das praias mais bonitas da região algarvia é a Praia da Rocha, em Portimão, sugiro o Bela Vista Hotel & Spa. Penso que seja o que possa estar mais de acordo, com as suas preferências...
    Se a intenção é ter o melhor dos dois mundos... muito verde, com a praia não muito longe, então sugiro o Pine Cliffs Hotel, em Albufeira.
    Esperando que tenha ajudado, um pouco na escolha...
    Beijinhos! Feliz Dia da Mulher!

  20. I should try this! It's interesting because when I was young, I considered my hair "too" thick and now...I miss it because it's now too thin. I've never had good hair...I really could use this. Love your natural hair care "potion". : ) And PS - I always wished I had wavy hair.

    1. Monica, it is the same with me, too. With age my hair is thinner.
      I always wanted to have strong and very long hair. But, alas, they are thin, fortunately they are wavy, it gives the impression of having a lot more hair... hahaha... Hugs :)
