First day of autumn | Post-summer DIY recipes

Hello everyone!

Since today marks the official first day of autumn (fall), I have a special treat for all you DIY beauty lovers. I want to share two new DIY beauty recipes; one for your skin and another for your hair. 

All the time spent soaking up rays has undoubtedly affected your skin and hair.  With the help of a few ingredients already in your kitchen, these DIY masks will give you a much-needed boost. Keep scrolling for two (2) DIYs, guaranteed to nurture skin and hair.

Nourishing hair mask


I have already posted a DIY banana hair mask and a DIY avocado hair mask on this blog. I also published a vegan alternative! Since post-summer, and post-sun exposure, hair can be especially dry, combining the two for extra nourishment is ideal!


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1 ripe banana (1/2 for short hair)
  • 2 tablespoons pure coconut/almond/olive oil (whichever you prefer)


Method:

  1. Peel the avocado and the banana.     
  2. Blend or mix together until it turns creamy.
  3. Add the coconut/almond/olive oil to the mixture and mix well.
  4. Apply the mixture from hair roots to tips.  
  5. Let the hair mask sit in your hair for 30 minutes.  
  6. Rinse the mixture out with warm water.
