- 1 ripe banana
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 tbsp of wheatgerm oil (I said to Stephanie, "Wheatgerm oil? Who has wheatgerm oil hanging around the house?" and she looked at me as if was the only person she knew who doesn't use wheatgerm oil on a regular basis). You can substitute olive oil if you, like me, don't have wheatgerm oil or time to run to your health food store for some.
- A few drops of essential oils, such as lavender, rose, sweet orange, or jasmine. Stephanie uses essential oils to mask the smell of the wheatgerm oil.
Shampoo hair, comb it out and towel-dry.
Apply mask to hair, including the scalp if you want. Or you can just deep condition the ends.
Put hair in a shower cap or wrap it in Saran Wrap and let it sit for about 15 minutes, longer if you prefer.
Rinse mask out in the shower. Place a heavy duty paper towel over the drain to catch the avocado and banana bits.
