Dear Beauty Banter,
My hair has gotten pretty dry from the harsh winter. How can I revive it?

The winter months are harsh on your hair, leaving long locks gasping for nutrients and moisture. Add in all of the crazy things we do like blow dry, flat iron, color and curl well, we have one unhappy head.
Use this treatment once or twice a week and it will work wonders for your hair.
Avocado Oil Hair Mask:
- 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
- 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 egg white
Whisk together in a bowl and massage into scalp through the ends of hair strands. Let sit in hair for 15 minutes then rinse.
I do this after I shampoo simpy because I forget to do so before. So it even works well with wet hair. You can shampoo again after you rinse.
Avocado oil is great for skin and nails too. I use it as a salad oil when cooling. It often replaces my extra virgin olive oil because the flavor is so unique.
