Super Moisture Mask for Hair

Without a doubt my favourite part of writing  a blog and being connected on social media is all the amazing people I get to ‘meet’ online. One of those awesome online connections is the girls behind The Desi Dossier; Kayenat and Nigar. {Completely unrelated, I would trade names with Kayenat in a heartbeat!}


I pretty much love everything about these adorable girls and their blog, but I’m more than a little obsessed with their hair. Like me they are big fans of using oil to keep your locks luscious, don’t believe in over-shampooing, and both sisters have hair to die for!

They’ve gone into great detail on their blog about their individual hair routine and shared a lot of great tips, so definitely head over there and check it out. What I’m sharing today is the recipe for their Super Moisture Mask. It is simple to make, all natural, and works wonders on over processed hair. I speak from experience. This is a mask I turn to when I’ve abused the privilege of owning a straightening iron for a few weeks.

The Desi Dossier – Super Moisture Mask for Hair

1 Ripe Avacado
Olive Oil
Almond Oil

{The original recipe does not give an actual amount for the oil but I’ve found that about 2 tablespoons of each oil usually works, and you can add more if needed depending on the firmness of the avocado}


1. Scoop out the flesh of the avocado into a small blender
2. Add the oil
3. Blend until cream like consistency
If you don’t have a blender you can mash it up with a fork in a bowl
4. Detangle hair with a comb or a brush
5. Take some of the mixture in your hand and start applying to your hair.
6.  Repeat until hair is fully saturated with the mixture
7. Wrap hair in cling film/saran wrap
8. Find something else to do while the mask works its wonders (a few hours is best, but even 20 minutes is beneficial)
9. Shampoo and Condition and Style as usual.
As long as the mask is in the texture of cream then it washes out of hair fairly easy. Leave the mask on for as long as you can bear it (Nigar here left it on for a few hours). It is slightly tricky to apply and it can be messy so place a towel on your shoulders and wear old clothes that you don’t mind washing.
If you have any mixture left, apply to clean dry skin. That’s a bonus 2 in 1 mask. It’s super hydrating and plumping on skin.

      There’s no cure for split ends….You’ll have to chop it! (the mask might temporarily seal it though)
