For severely dry locks, try this super easy (and inexpensive) DIY concoction:
Scoop out half an avocado and toss it in the blender. Add a teaspoon of olive oil to allow it to blend easier. Don’t overdo the oil since you will have to then use more shampoo, which will end up drying out your hair! Blend to a paste.
It works best if the avocado is just ripe and soft — if it’s too hard it’ll be more difficult to make that pasty blend, and you’ll end up with little pieces in the mixture.
Once it’s made, apply it just like you would hair oil, massaging it in from roots to ends. It goes on fairly clear.
My little sister tried this recently to treat her parched ends as an alternative to chopping it off, and said this REALLY helped. Her hair became more soft and healthy afterwards. She also said this washes out easily in the shower, so she doesn’t have to spend a lot of time shampooing it out, as you would with hair oil.
