Guacamole for hair- Pre shampoo conditioner

I can never stress enough how important it is to moisturise your hair. When I first became a natural, my hair was dry and brittle. Through constant training (lots if conditioning, oil treatments, conditioning sprays).

Sometimes you forget to do an overnight oil treatment and need a big injection of moisture in a short amount of time. This treatment is amazing… You can thank me later!

Ingredients:
- half a cup of Jojoba oil (use good quality vegetable oil as substitute)
- 3 grated carrot
- 1 ripe avocado
- 3 tablespoon of castor oil

Macerating the oil- Maceration is a process by which oil in plants can be released by soaking them in vegetable oil. In this instance, jojoba oil is a great partner for the carrot. The process is basically an infusion. Place the grated carrot in a jar, cover it with the jojoba oil. Seal the jar and leave in direct sunlight for a day.

You can prepare more by increasing the amount of grated carrots and leaving the infusion for 2 weeks, again in direct sunlight if you can. If you reside in the UK then leave it somewhere warm like your cupboard. Shake the jar daily, strain and repeat with a fresh batch of carrots. Finally, strain, pour into a dark glass bottle and label with name and date.

Conditioner
1- mash the ripe avocado then blend with the oil and the castor oil to your hair and scalp
2- using a mild shampoo, wash your hair. If you have thin hair then add a tiny bit of lemon juice to act as a mild astringent. If you have dry hair and want more moisture wash with just the shampoo.
