Let's start here:
That's right; an avocado! Amazing for your hair. Some even say it makes your hair grow faster; we've all heard those myths; I won't lie I will be the first to test this theory out! In many parts of the world avocado is called the "poor man's oil". It contains Vitamins A, B, C and E which are great for curly, thick hair. Just mix 1 ripe avocado with 1 egg and olive oil and rub into your scalp. Ideally, you should let the mixture sit in your hair for about 30 minutes but I know we all don't have that time so 10 minutes is good too.
Oh yes, we are going to use every fruit in the house! Bananas, like avocado's, are great for adding moisture to dry locks. How does a Banana Hair Smoothie sound? It smell's awfully good to me! For this wonderful concoction you will need:
- 1 mashed banana
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 5 tablespoons olive oil
The next item we will be taking out of your refrigerator is:
Yogurt is probably one of the most versatile ingredients I have come across. You can cook with it instead of using sour cream, heavy cream or buttermilk, you can make cheese with it, you can drink it (yogurt smoothie anyone?), you can add granola or fruit to it for a healthy snack, or just eat it alone. It's not only delicious but really healthy for you as well. Do you know what else it's healthy for? Your dry skin after a long winter! That's right, yogurt's antibacterial properties make it a useful, degerming cleanser, and its lactic-acid content soothes irritation, clarifies the pores and softens the skin. Finally, yogurt is known for its probiotics (live, active cultures), which are helpful in naturally treating skin conditions such as acne and eczema.
