August 22, 2012 Glam Tip: Shiny Hair? Holy Guacamole! In need of hair recovery from a summer-long binge of sun,wind, chlorine filled pools and salt water beaches? This totally natural, organic treatment can transform the driest, most damaged hair into glossy, “is that a mirror or your hair?” type shine. We kid you not. So what’s in it, you ask. A laundry-list of never before heard of lotions and potions? Nope. There’s only two ingredients: avocado oil and aloe vera juice. That’s it. Aloe Vera juice, available at many organic and heath food stores, contains hair-loving amino acids and proteins, making it the prefect antidote to dry, frizzy, or damaged hair. Avocado oil is high in anti-oxidants and hair-streghtening proteins, and is also a natural humectant, which keeps hair moisturized. Buying tip: make sure to purchase the purest form of both, avoiding any added flavors, sugars or starches. To apply, create a mixture using a ratio of one part avocado oil to two parts aloe vera juice, and saturate dry hair from root to tip. The longer and thicker your hair, the more of the mixture you’ll need. Comb through to ensure even distribution, and cover with a plastic cap. Let it sit on you hair for at least 30 minutes before shampooing as normal. Warning: use of this mask may lead to girls standing behind you and applying lipstick. – – Follow us on Pinterest TweetEmail About the Author OPStaffWriter Previous articleColor Inspiration: White Next articleNothing Says Lovin’ Like Something from the Oven You may also like November 14, 2017 Giving Your Interiors a Quick Facelift October 25, 2017 OP Must Have: TUMI Backpack August 3, 2017 5 Favorite Gadgets of the Moment July 10, 2017 Olivia Palermo x Vianel Launch!
