Hair Masks for Natural Hair 

Natural hair can be difficult to find a product for as it needs a lot of moisture and special care. A few options for hair masks for natural hair are avocado masks, deep conditioners, mayonnaise hair masks, protein mix hair masks, banana with egg masks,

Avocado Masks

Avocado masks are fairly simple to make at home and provide some glamorous benefits for hair. Some benefits of avocado masks include but are not limited to moisturizing, promotion of hair growth, dandruff prevention, and revitalizing damaged hair. The healthy effects come from the vitamins ( A, D, E, and B6), amino acids, magnesium, folic acid, and copper/iron that avocados naturally have. Also, the oils in avocados can actually penetrate the hair follicle and provide actual moisture to the hair. Below are two examples of avocado masks for both dry hair and the promotion of hair growth.
