Avocado Coconut Oil Hair Mask

My darling daughter was recently in town for a visit. I can’t tell you how much fun it was to introduce her to my new home, the San Francisco Bay area. We had an amazing time and once again, I was reminded what a remarkable young woman she has grown into. I love that at 23, she is into healthy eating and skin care, creates a lot of her own recipes and is a wiz in the kitchen. We hiked, made food together, spent a day in the city and a day at the shore. It was a wonderful visit.

While she loved the heat without humidity, she was less impressed on the toll it had taken on my hair. “Mom, your hair looks a little dry and frizzy”, she informed me one afternoon. From the mouths of babes, right? I couldn’t disagree as I had been noticing the dryness myself. Off to the kitchen we went as I whipped up a great hair mask for both of us. We came up with some wonderful avocado recipes.

Honestly, I knew it would help, but I wasn’t prepared for the transformation these three simple ingredients created! Both Kaia (youngest daughter) and I ended up with hair that was shiny and silky. We both agreed that our hair hasn’t looked this good for months! I made an immediate promise to myself to use this mask at least once a month

    Can I use almond oil instead of the rosemary oil?

    This was so lovely, glad I stumbled across this! My coarse thick hawaiian filipino hair is like silk! I had extra avocados today so I tried it after the beach. I actually put the leftovers on my face to moisturize my dried winter skin (yes even in Hawaii the air can get dry in the winter).

    Does it work good on African American hair

      I haven’t tried it, Danyelle, but I don’t see why not. Let us know! Cheers!

    What else could I use in place of the rosemary oil?

    Stumbled upon this and while I am always wary to try things like this in my hair, I am just dying to try this. I have thin hair but a lot of it that’s slippery but getting dry from the sun. So, I ordered coconut oil! Thank you so much for this!

    I used this recipe except instead of an avcado I replaced with about 4 tablespoons of avacado oil. Like Susan, I could not believe the results. They were unbelievably gorgeous!

    Hi what can I use in place of the rosemary essential oil? I can’t seem to find it anywhere?

    Does this work for locs?

    • Susan wrote on February 13, 2014

      I honestly have no experience with the care of locs. Sorry!

      Hi Angelica,

      You can make a rosemary rinse, using avocado, peppermint, and sage oil

    I recently colored my hair a dark coppery red after 30 years of being blonde. I’m such a fan of home made hair and skin treatments, but I’ve been so nervous about doing anything that might harm this new (and expensive) color. Any idea if this recipe is harmful to bottled color? I know to stay away from anything with citrus in it.
    All I know is the ends of my hair are super dry and my poor scalp has been crazy flaky–something I’ve never had a problem with.

      I wish I had an answer for you but I don’t know that science. Maybe ask your colorist?
