  1. I love using avocado in my hair masks. It’s a great conditioner and my hair feels so soft afterwards. Over time, I have mixed avocado with coconut oil, eggs, or honey. All of the combos work great. You can check out my blog post on my experiments here: http://wp.me/p1BAZi-cl

    • Hi Alia! Thanks for sharing 🙂 Even though the banana/carrot mask was a bit of work it sounds awesome and seems like it would smell really fantastic. Great blog!
