DIY Hair Care: How to Make an Avocado and Coconut Oil Hair Mask

Mar 19, 2023Andrew Abbey


Are you tired of using expensive hair products that promise to make your hair shiny and soft, but fail to deliver? The solution might be as simple as making your own hair mask using natural ingredients. In this post, we'll show you how to make a nourishing hair mask using avocado and coconut oil.

Avocado and Coconut Oil Hair Mask

Avocado is a superfood that is not only great for your health but also your hair. It is rich in vitamins A, D, and E, which help to nourish and moisturize your hair. Coconut oil is also an excellent moisturizer that helps to prevent breakage and split ends. Together, these ingredients make a powerful hair mask that can transform dry and damaged hair into soft and shiny locks.


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


  1. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.
  2. Scoop out the flesh of the avocado and place it in a bowl.
  3. Add the coconut oil to the bowl and mash the ingredients together with a fork until smooth.
  4. Apply the mixture to your hair, starting from the roots and working your way to the ends.
  5. Cover your hair with a shower cap or towel and leave the mask on for 30 minutes.
  6. Rinse off the mask with warm water and shampoo and condition your hair as usual.

Benefits of Homemade Hair Masks

Using homemade hair masks with natural ingredients can be a cost-effective and healthy way to care for your hair. Many commercial hair products contain harsh chemicals that can damage your hair over time. Chemical hair straighteners from different brands have recently been put into the public spotlight after findings showed that recent use could cause uterine cancer and other issues. Many women use it without knowing the risks, and a study finds Black women may be more affected due to higher use. See here for more information. By making your own hair mask, you can avoid these chemicals and instead use gentle and nourishing ingredients that are good for your hair and scalp. Plus, making your own hair mask can be fun and empowering, and you can experiment with different ingredients to find the perfect combination for your hair type and needs.
