All about avocado hair masks for red hair

Sometimes, you only need to look as far as your kitchen for a way to add some health and moisture back into your red hair. Packed with nourishing vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats, avocados are not just for guacamole and salads.

Here’s all you need to know about the delicious hair benefits of avocado masks and how to use them for silky-smooth, radiant red hair.

Why is avocado great for red hair?

Intensely moisturises: avocados are rich in natural oils and fats that deeply moisturise and hydrate the hair, leaving it softer, smoother, and more manageable.

Strengthens hair: the vitamins and minerals present in avocados, such as vitamin E, vitamin C, and biotin, help strengthen the hair shaft, reducing breakage and split ends.

Adds shine: the oils in avocado penetrate the hair shaft, providing a protective layer that enhances shine and lustre, making your hair look healthier and more vibrant.

Soothes scalp: avocado’s anti-inflammatory properties help soothe and nourish the scalp, reducing itchiness, dryness, and dandruff.

How to make your own DIY avocado hair mask

  1. Mash 1 ripe avocado in a bowl until smooth.
  2. Add a mixing ingredient. Excellent options include: honey (approx. 2 tablespoons), 1 egg or coconut oil (approx. 2 tablespoons).
  3. Mix well. If using coconut oil, you may need to warm it up so it melts first.
  4. Apply your mixture to damp hair, focusing first on the ends and working upwards.
  5. Comb through.
  6. Leave on for 20-30 minutes, or longer if you have time! Our top tip: cover with a shower cap or thermal cap to enhance the effects of the mask.
  7. Rinse thoroughly with cool/lukewarm water, then shampoo and condition as normal. If using coconut oil, you may need slightly warmer water to re-melt it.

You can experiment with plenty of other household ingredients, such as olive oil, yoghurt or aloe vera.

An avocado hair mask is a gorgeous, self-indulgent way to boost hydration and sleekness if your red hair is feel dull and dry. Plus, it’s a great way to use up an avocado which might otherwise have been destined for the bin!
