DIY Coconut Avocado Hair Mask

I’ll just try to spare you the really long intro about useless information that typical DIY’s are attached too and just get down to business on this amazing coconut avocado hair mask. Inspired by our Sun Bum candle the notes of coconut, olive oil and honey have me transported to a beach instantly.  

I recommend it at least once every two weeks during the harsh winter and summer months.  

This project may sound like your making potato salad for your next family reunion. But I assure you it's got all the goodness and works wonders for your scalp & over processed locks. And please don’t eat it.  

Tools needed-

*Large bowl


*Measuring spoons

*Shower cap

*Hot towel (wet one down pop in the microwave for 1-2 minutes)

*Hair clip Ingredients-

*5 tablespoon unrefined coconut oil

*2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

*1 egg yolk

*1/2 avocado

*3 tablespoon honey (I prefer sunflower)

*1/2 cup mayonnaise (use the real deal mayo not miracle whip, that's a salad dressing and not gonna cut it for this)


*1 Melt the coconut oil for 30 seconds and pour into the bowl. Add the honey. Whisk.

*Smash avocado and add into the oil & honey mixture.

*Add the rest of the ingredients except for the egg yolk into the bowl. Whisk.

*Add the egg yolk, now that your hot oil is tempered. If you add it to soon you will cook the egg and smell weird later on. Whisk.

How to apply:

*Make sure your hair is clean and damp before applying.

*Take mixture and work your way from the root to the ends.

*Place shower cap on

*Wrap shower cap with the hot towel and clip.

*Leave the mixture on your head for approximately 45-60 minutes and rinse throughly with shampoo and cold water. *Dispose of left over product

*Repeat once every 2 weeks at minimum

*Enjoy your new silky, shiny hair!

Thank you for reading.
