Last weekend, I put guacamole in my hair, and it was awesome.
Let me explain. I found Lauren Conrad’s website for all things beauty, TheBeautyDepartment. I did Hair Bootcamp, and part of it was to mix half of an avocado with some olive oil and put it in your hair as a very thick, guacamole-like masque. Classy! As I mentioned on twitter, I was really glad Mr. Dollars wasn’t around to bear witness to my ridiculousness.
I wrapped my hair in saran wrap and heated it up with a hair dryer, and let it sit. I had green goop dripping off my head for a solid hour. But let me tell you, IT WAS WORTH IT. My hair was soft, shiny, and oh so flouncy after I was done. Then I added some argan oil, and oo-la-la, I was tres fabulouso dahlings.
While my head was fermenting, I did a homemade sour cream and honey mask I got from Fabulously Fru-Girl. My face is still nice and soft, and I’ve actually noticed a decrease in my breakouts. Before I put the mask on, I exfoliated very gently with a brown sugar and olive oil scrub. It was ah-mah-zing.
I want to take better care of my face and my hair, and using at home DIY stuff makes it really easy (and fun! I get to zone out at home and not worry about paying for anything at the end of my spa experience). I promised myself if I didn’t buy clothes for all of February, I would buy myself a Clarisonic Mia, since I’ve read so many good things about it. I’ll also be due for some new makeup around that time, so I’ll be hitting up Sephora in a big way come March 1st!
