Avocado Hair Mask for Kids

My daughter loves getting a hair mask put on. It makes her feel so pampered. We do one every couple weeks or so, and sometimes more in the winter. Not always this one, there's a few others we do too but she loves this one.

You probably already know that avocado is one of the best foods to eat, and a great first food for babies. But what you may not have known is that it's just as good for your hair. If your toddler has dry looking hair it will definitely add shine. If their scalp is dry in the winter masks like this help with that as well.

All you have to do to make it is mash up a pretty ripe avocado. If your kid is going through an especially dry time you can also add up to 1 tbsp olive oil to it. That can make it look a bit greasy for a few days, but after it's gotten wet a couple times the hair is left looking really shiny and healthy!

When you apply it to your child's hair you just massage the scalp very lightly with it and rub it around through the hair. You can then use a comb to spread it throughout the hair as well. Afterwards wrapping saran wrap around it can help it to not get messy if they will be playing while it sits for about 10-20 minutes before washing it out.
