Ingredients + Benefits
Hair: Honey acts as a humectant, attracting moisture to your hair. It improves the health of hair follicles and the scalp, and adds a natural shine.
Skin: Honey fights infections below the skin’s surface by unclogging pores and cleaning out impurities. Its moisturizing properties protect from dryness while also preventing wrinkles. Honey is a great source of antioxidants and has the ability to protect skin from UV rays.
Hair: Like honey, avocado has humectant properties, helping to lock moisture into your strands. Its vitamins, amino acids, and high fat content promote hair growth and overall scalp health.
Skin: The antioxidants and amino acids present in avocados help rid your body of toxins that may otherwise result in wrinkles. Avocado is also rich in vitamin A, which helps remove dead cells from the surface of your skin.
Sweet Almond Oil & Almond Milk
Hair: Almond oil and almond milk are full of omega-6 fatty acids, which play a large role in hair growth and development; as well as vitamin E which strengthens the hair and moisturizes the scalp.
Skin: Almond oil and almond milk contain vitamin E, which improves complexion by helping to retain moisture, reduce wrinkles, and add a natural glow to skin.
How To Make Your Mask
- Combine ½ avocado, 1 medium banana, 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil, 1 tablespoon honey, ¼ cup almond milk in a bowl.
- Mash with a fork or blend in a blender until the consistency is smooth. The blender gives the best results because it eliminates annoying banana and avocado chunks that tend to get stuck in hair.

To serve face: Apply a generous amount to clean, dry skin and let sit for about a half hour. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.
