I told you that I'd post something healthy! Although, this is for your hair. :)
Do you have an avocado and olive oil?
Here's the recipe for soft, silky hair.
Blend 1 ripe avocado & 1/2 tsp of olive oil until smooth, then work mixture into damp hair with comb. (or with your hands) Pop on a plastic shower cap, (or wrap hair in plasticwrap) and let sit 30 min.
Rinse and shampoo as usual.

*The avocado's abundant vitamin E and essential fatty acids will nourish damaged hair and leave it smooth and silky.*
Oh my gosh! There is nothing like the feeling of smashed up avocado on your head. It's ooey -gooey, squishy, mushy, nasty and gross ... you get the idea. :) ICK! Just be sure not to accidentally drop some on the bathroom floor. It doesn't look that good - if you know what I mean. YIKES!
Pros: It does leave your hair very smooth, sleek and silky. I'm actually very impressed! Will I use it again? Yes!
Cons: It's very messy and it looks gross. I've never liked the way guacamole looks, so what can I say?? hee-hee!
TIP! Be sure to Puree the avocado until it's very smooth, and just when you think it's smooth enough... pulse it a time or two more. JUST MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO CLUMPS!
I will never buy a deep conditioner again!! Just use avocados and olive oil! Deep conditioning at it's best for about a buck.
Reflecting back: When I was young, many moons ago, my mother would drench her hair in olive oil and wrap it up with saran wrap. I laughed. Only because, I really couldn't understand why she did it. Boy, if she could have seen me tonight. HAH! I know now - hair tends to get dryer as we age. :)
I'm calling her tomorrow and telling her my new found secret. I think she'll return the laugh!
