Olive Oil Saves Me From Laundry

I'm doing an olive oil and egg hair mask. Why you ask? I have no freaking clue.

It actually came about quite randomly. I had an overly-ripe Brazilian avocado laying around that needed to be used. In case you've never seen one of these bad boys, they are about the size of an average Brazilian newborn.

Anyway, I could not, would not, eat the entire thing.  Talk about pooping on a sidewalk, this Momma would be a little too regular for her taste.

So what does a logical girl do in this situation? She smears it all over her head. I know what you are thinking, is there avocado in olive oil and egg hair masks? Don't get ahead of yourself.

No, of course there isn't. My little bitch of an avocado had already gone bad.  Freaking heat and humidity creating a quicker rate of ripening!

It was quite a disappointment but I couldn't see how a semi-rotten avocado would benefit my hair. I had gotten myself and my hair all excited so I had to come up with something else. That's when Google came to my rescue once again. It found me this site: Home Made Hair Masks.

It was pretty easy to decide which one to do seeing that I basically only have olive oil and eggs in the house.

And while I could have been a responsible Wife and Mother and completed by chores, I instead decided to be a wannabe beautician.

But regardless of my total lack of productivity, I'll have pretty hair. Now all I need to do is work on the butt and I'll be unstoppable!



  1. I have one of those babies rotting in my fridge. I can see it's black on one corner, and keep procrastinating eating it as well, it's not savory like the avos I grew up with in Hawaii... and I kinda know it's gonna be all rotten.... you've inspired me. Face mask time ;)

  2. hehe i've never tried!! let me know how it turns out?

  3. It's not too bad. I don't think I got quite all of it out but it's looking good. I'm so doing the avocado one next time!

    And Ojeito, how do you make your own mask? Is it just avocado?

  5. yes avocado, 1 TBsp of Honey, and if you want it to tighten, then add egg white to it too. Of course if you want the mask to be all pretty you can add lemon juice to it to keep it green, but who are we kidding, brown green.. green green.. you still look scary with it on!

  6. I woke up this morning and my hair looked great! I'm so trying your mask! Don't worry, I don't mind not looking pretty :)

  7. You girls are making me jealous :(
    I've got no hair left for hair masks...
    I am lucky Gil likes balding men :)
    Hey, I miss those delicious Brazilian Avocados, better than anyone we ever found here...
    These avocados in the States have no taste and are the size of a small orange!!!
    What's up with that?
    We used to gag with the notion of Avocados in Salads and with Salt but it grew on us over the years...
    Still miss those delicious Brazilian Avocado deserts!!!

  8. LOL, I miss my California Avocados... to each their own Ray.
