DIY Organic Avocado Hair Mask

Quote: "What if I fall...Oh my darling, what if You fly?"- Unknown.



Good morning Guys, Happy Sunday!!
I went for 7:30 am Mass at Falomo, and I have the rest of the day free! Yaay Me! Lately, I've had a lot of "alone time." It's a good thing to experience once in a while. I feel my court attachment externship is one of the best things God put in place to fire me up for my career. I am truly grateful.

However, I feel I am not reading enough for school. Tbh, it's as if I need to put in more effort. A new friend of mine told me I'd be just fine (hey Georgie). But, tearfully, I don't know how. In a good way, I know I need a little push.

Back to today's post! Generally, I love to eat/snack on Avocado! But, like most things with humans, my body outrightly rejects it! Sadly, people, Avocado gives Alexandria serious flatulence. Don't laugh at me or I won't share anything with you again. Kiddin'! *insertLaughingEmoji*
I'm even laughing at myself, who am I to stop you?

Lets talk hair! It's okay if you are not on the natural hair train, or, have been on it and it is not for you. It's okay. This blog is here for you. This is a hair mask I stumbled upon by curiosity. Since I can't eat Avocado without flatulence, surely I can put it to use in some other way... So, I had an inspiration, and, checked out the great big internet to see if others had ever done it. And, they had! So, I felt safe experimenting Avo on my hair. I used things  found around the house to make this DIY Mask. Also, this is a great Pre-Poo/Shampoo regimen.

 WHAT YOU WILL NEED:


  • A big sized Avocado should do. As you will see below, I used 3 small ones.
  • 2 Tablespoons of Pure Honey (please avoid those sugar syrups they pass off as honey, in order to avoid ants gathering around).
  • An egg.
  • A functional shower cap 


Slice the Avocado into two from top to bottom. Use your fingers to pick out the seed and that deadish-paper-like-thing(forgive my cluster) that serves as a covering for the seed.


It should look like this.




Use a spoon to scoop out the Avocado into a bowl. When you're done, break the egg into the same bowl, and, add the honey. Slightly beat it together, and pour the contents into a blender, and blend it into a smooth paste. There was no power supply when I did this, so I had to beat it to the best of my ability... This is what it looks like.

Use your hands to rub the paste on your head.


Gently massage the paste on the strands of your hair. Focus on your strands first, before your scalp. Do not forget to give your edges, and, ends(tips of your hair) a taste of this goodness, they are your prime priority.



Now, gently use your fingers to de-tangle your hair. I keep using the phrase gently, because your hair doesn't need aggression, keep that energy for pounding yam.



Before We continue, I want to share a small victory with you. I finally got my Learner's Permit! Driving in Lagos Nigeria is something else! It's like driving in a Maniac Grand Prix. Do you drive? What is it like where you drive? Tell Me in the Comment box below.



In continuation,
Massage it a little bit more, and use your shower cap to cover your hair for 10 minutes. 

Then, rinse out the Avocado mask. You will need A LOT of water for this. Use lukewarm water for this. Continuously rinse out the mask, use you  hands to scrub out the mixture, gently does it. LON Tip: Honey, DO NOT comb your hair just yet, chill. In fact, do not comb your hair until it is dry. Again, under no circumstance are you allowed to use hot water to rinse this out. You run the risk of cooking the egg in the mask. You might end up with not just tiny Avocado lumps but, egg white lumps too*cringe* Continue rinsing until the water from your hair is clear, and, looks clean. If you want, you can go ahead and just use shampoo at this stage.
However, I didn't. I felt the shampoo might remove the whole essence of using an organic hair mask. The decision is your to make Love, whatever rocks your boat.




Wrap your hair in a Towel and wait for water to stop dripping from it. Your best bet is to allow natural air dry your hair, and, not using a hand dryer. Unless, you're in a hurry. If you need any clarification about this, or have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me in the comments below.

VERDICT: This mask made my hair shiny, I loved it! And, Would recommend it you, if you feel you hair needs a little polishing/shine. I also used this mask for my face, it's absolutely refreshing. 

That's it for this week guys, see you next week Sunday. Thank you for stopping by. Remember to follow me on Instagram @lilyofnigeria plus, I just made my first Ayamashe, go check it out there.

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

Quote of the Day: Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you.
Hi, dolls! Welcome to today's post. How are you doing? Forgive me for the long time no post here on the blog I've been very busy in the non-virtual world. If you follow me on Instagramyou would have noticed the hiatus there as well. It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria, but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds.


Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discussed it with a trusted family m…

SAVIOURS AGAINST DRY SKIN THIS HARMATTAN SEASON/COLD WEATHER | A SKINCARE POST

My mother's people have a saying that the best time to find out if a woman is truly beautiful is during the harmattan season, because you'll get to see her real skin/true beauty.
Happy new month guys! It's that time of the year again when we begin to think of how best to stop our skin from drying out and breaking. You might find this post helpful if you plan on coming to Nigeria/west Africa between November-February.

People in other parts of the world go through winter, West Africans go through the dry and most times unforgiving harmattan. Regardless, the dry season as it is generally called is my favourite season. From dry skin to dusty looking skin to severe cases of broken skin with sores, if you have lived/live in Nigeria then you most likely have a harmattan skin story.
To prepare your skin for this period, it's best you review your beauty regimen and find out what works best for you, and check in with your dermatologist if you have …
