How to get Oscar red carpet ready with a DIY Avocado Fenugreek Hair Mask Tutorial

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Who's watching the Oscars this year? Not me. There was too much brou ha ha about it and I think that now there is a kids soccer match mentality about it. Everybody gets a trophy for participating. So if you were an background actor on the set for one day, here's your Oscar.

So I will be watching The Walking Dead instead. Things are heating up with Rick and Michon. How can I not watch?

For those who are going to the Oscars or doing an Oscars party, you are going to need to have amazing hair. I personally, am doing an at home DIY hair mask of raw egg, coconut oil and honey. Anything to heal my low thyroidism crunch cotton candy like hair!

For those who would like an at home spa diy hair mask to heal hair, get ready for the red carpet or nourish before a sunny spring break trip, try this!

DIY Avocado Fenugreek Hair Mask Tutorial 

"Though it’s possible you haven’t tried it yourself, we’re sure you’ve heard of putting avocado in your hair. No matter how messy you think it’ll be, though, and no matter how weird you think it seems, we cannot back the avocado for hair treatment enough," explains Wendy Rose Gould beauty expert for hair tutorial and advice site

"Avocado acts as a shine-boosting, ultra-moisturizing hair treatment in and of itself. Today, however, we’re adding another ingredient to this mask: fenugreek seeds. If you haven’t heard of this ingredient, fenugreek is a spice that’s often used in curries to add a subtle hint of earthy sweetness.
Fenugreek has also been heralded as a potent ingredient in hair treatments. 

Not only does it promote hair growth when used at the scalp, it strengthens the hair while simultaneously softening it. It’s a truly outstanding ingredient. Some people soak the seeds in water and then do a fenugreek rinse after shampooing, but for this recipe we’re going to grind them. 

Here’s the how-to."
Step One: Grind Fenugreek Seeds
This recipe calls for approximately 2 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds. You can find these in the bulk section and most health food stores. Alternatively try looking online or at establishments that sell Asian or Indian spices. Grind the seeds with either a mortar and pestle, or with a spice grinder.
Step Two: Combine with Avocado

Mash one soft, ripe avocado. Add the ground fenugreek and mix well.
Step Three: Apply to Hair
Apply the mashed avocado and fenugreek mixture to your hair. It may get a little messy, so do this in the bathroom, or even in the shower itself.
Step Four: Wait
Place a shower cap over your hair and let the mask set for 10 to 20 minutes. The longer it sets, the better. After the time has elapsed, rinse it out with shampoo and follow up with conditioner, per normal.
Step Five: Style
Style your hair as usual and note the difference in texture and shine. You can repeat once a week, or every other week, to maintain softness and shine, and to strengthen the hair shaft.
