If you want healthy, long hair then you’ll definitely want to come back and try out my Hair Growth Smoothie for yourself.
I’m always getting asked how I’ve managed to grow my hair so long over the last couple of years, and the answer is pretty simple. I keep damage to a minimum (heat and chemicals), I wear protective styles often, and I nourish my hair with conditioners and healthy hair food.
YES! I said healthy hair food. Just like the food you feed your body, the things that you feed your hair also contribute to its health. This hair growth smoothie is my favorite recipe to show my hair some TLC and stimulate growth without putting a whole bunch of ingredients that I can’t even pronounce into my hair.
So, here’s what you’ll need:
1 aloe vera leaf
2 tablespoon of black castor oil
Step 1: Start off with a clean scalp (I shampoo’d with African Black Soap.)
Step 2: Cut the aloe vera leaf into pieces small enough that you can easily split in half. Once you’ve used a knife to split the aloe vera pieces, cut carefully along the skin of the plant to remove the clear, jelly-like “meat” from the leaf. Add this meat to the blender.
Step 3: Pick a ripe avocado (it should leave a dent when you press your finger onto it) and cut it in half. Remove the seed and then scoop the avocado out of the skin and into the blender.
Step 4: Peel a ripe banana and add it to the blender.
Step 5: Add two tablespoons of black castor oil to the blender.
Step 6: Blend.
Step 7: Apply this mixture to your hair from root to tips. Make sure each strand is coated as best you can.
Step 8: Apply a plastic bag or shower cap to your hair. Wrap a warm towel around the cap. This will retain heat and allow your hair to soak up the mixture better. Keep the smoothie on your hair for 20 minutes.
Step 9: Shampoo and rinse thoroughly. Apply your normal hair conditioner. Repeat this process twice a month.
