The Great Avocado Crunch Wrap of 2013 has officially started the avocado craze here at Native Foods! And with Cinco de Mayo just behind us, there are sure to be some of those ol’ “Alligator Pears” sitting around your kitchen the next few weeks.

If ever you find yourself sick of guacamole (!!!!!) or your x-ray vision wasn’t working properly at the store and your little Haas turned out to be a not as pretty inside as you’d imagined, do not fret. You can easily turn that less-than-perfect avocado of yours into a nourishing , moisturizing hair or face mask. Or maybe both, if you wanna get super guac'ed up!
Avocados are rich in vitamin D, A, E and fatty oils that are great for deep conditioning dry or damaged hair and skin. Vegetables really can make you beautiful inside and out.
So bust out your granny’s shower cap and dump that guac on your head!

Avocado Hair Mask (for all hair types )
Stir up 1 avocado and 2 tablespoons olive OR almond oil.
Depending on your hair type, leave on 15-30 minutes (30 for dry/damaged hair)
If you have dry skin, I would also recommend this face mask for the same reasons. Moisturize! Bonus points if you do both at the same time.
Avocado Fair Mask (for dry skin)
Mix 1/2 ripe avocado and 1/3 cup oatmeal.
Apply the paste to your skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse.
Now…go celebrate with your luminous new locks and glowing complexion!
