DIY Hair Mask

Few things are more pleasant than spending a night in, with a good book, a scented candle, a long bath and, of course, some pampering! It might sound high-maintenance, but it is in fact a surefire way to keep a busy mom's sanity.

As for the pampering part, I've got an idea here for you:
This hair mask is ridiculously easy to make (literally takes 5 minutes!), and it is perfect for dry, dull hair (like mine!). For those of you who heat style it on the regular, this one is for you too. If your hair is super oily, on the other hand, perhaps stay away from this one. The best part of this is that you probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen! Whenever you are feeling like a little TLC is in order, just head to your pantry and in less than half an hour your hair will be a happy, hydrated camper, just perfect to welcome spring! woohoo!

Here is what you'll need:

- 1 Egg yolk: Its many proteins, vitamins and fatty acids nourish and moisturize dry hair.
- 1/2 Avocado: Also full of proteins that restore the health of your hair.
- 1/2 cup of milk: The nutrients in milk strengthen and fortify the hair's cells.
- 1 teaspoon olive oil: Olive oil is full of fatty acids that coat the hair and protect it from damage.

The process is as straightforward as they come:

1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, until you have no chunks left (trust me, they are not fun to rinse off, specially the avocado!).

2. Separate your dry hair into different sections (at least 2, but it varies according to how much hair you have).

3. Apply the mask from the ends up but avoid the roots, as they are normally much oilier than the rest of the hair.

4. Leave on for 15-20 minutes. A shower cap will make it more concentrated and prevent the mask from getting everywhere! Shampoo and condition to rinse off.

5. Marvel at your shiny locks!

I know it is not the prettiest-looking mask, but who cares about the mask if your hair looks amazing!
