Nourish Your Hair From Home

Keeping healthy hair in Utah's weather can be a task.  We battle with harmful rays from the sun, pollutions, and dirt on a daily basis, and frankly, it shows in our hair.  Sadly, we don't take advantage of the great things mother nature gave us to revive our hair.  Things like avocado provides us with vitamin E and C which help defend your hair from pollutants.  Honey provides humectants, which help to moisturize the hair.  Egg yolk is high in hair-building protein, and olive oil helps improve the hair's appearance.  Here's a treatment for you hair that you can do from home to help nourish and hydrate your lovely locks. 

1 avocado
3 T. olive oil
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. honey

Mix and mash all ingredients thoroughly until it's a smooth consistency.  Apply to dry hair working from the ends to the scalp.  Wrap hair with a shower cap or warm, damp towel.  Let the mixture soak for 20-30 minutes and then wash and shampoo.  Treat your hair once a week for best results!
