Why Avocados Need to Be in Your Beauty Routine…NOW!

Oh avocados! They’re so yummy sliced up on a sandwich or mashed up into guacamole.  Some may only use avocados to satisfy their taste buds, but did you know that they are actually the perfect fruit to incorporate into your beauty routine.  Check out a few of my favorite ways to look more beautiful using avocados!Chelsea Crockett- avocado face mask

Avocados are packed full of biotin which helps keep skin moisturized and prevents hair from becoming too dry. To incorporate avocados into your beauty regime, make sure they are fully ripe.  To hurry up this process, place the avocado in a brown bag with a banana and let it sit overnight.  If your skin is feeling dry, mash up the avocado pulp, spread evenly on clean skin, and let sit for 15 minutes.  Let the vitamin E soak through your skin and then rinse it off with warm water.

Are puffy eyes showcasing that you’re not getting enough sleep? No problem!  Slice the avocado so that each piece is in a crescent shape.  Lie down and place a slice under each eye.  Leave on for approximately 20 minutes before rinsing it off.  If your hair is feeling dry this season, try adding a few drops of avocado oil to your conditioner.  This inexpensive oil will do the trick!

No need to purchase fancy and expensive creams to keep your skin and hair top notch during these cold months!

Love,

Chelsea

Does your hair feel limp? Does it fail to hold curls like it used to? If so, then it is probably being weighed down by product build up. Hair products like dry shampoo, hair spray, and leave-in conditioner over time can build up on your hair and weigh it down. Here is how to clarify your hair and remove the product build-up:

You will need:

2 tablespoons of shampoo

1 tablespoon of baking soda

Measure out 2 tablespoons of shampoo into a small container and add the baking soda to it. Wet your hair and use the shampoo mixture in your hair as you normally would, using your fingers to work it into your scalp and hair.  Let the mixture sit in your hair no longer than 4 minutes. Rinse the mixture out of your hair with cold water. Use conditioner as you normally would. You can do this treatment once a month to keep your hair clarified and to minimize the product build up that accumulates on it. The less product build up, the lighter and fuller your hair will be, and the better it will hold a curl!

 

Lather, rinse, and repeat!

XOXO, Chels

Are you grossed out by the nastiness that you call your hair? Is your mane damaged beyond compare? Do your split ends have split ends? Never fear, Chelsea is here! Now don’t get grossed out when I tell you the ingredients to this hair treatment. Hang with me here ladies. This treatment requires olive oil……and a raw egg. There, I said it. But no worries, once you feel how silky smooth your hair is after this treatment, you will want to have raw egg in your hair all the time! (Okay, maybe I took that one a bit too far..) But on a serious note, this treatment is totally worth sitting with raw egg in your hair for a bit. Read on, Insiders!

Step 1:

Chelsea Crockett Olive Oil

Warm about 1/4 of a cup of olive oil in the good ‘ole microwave. Then, mix in that lovely egg.

Step 2:

Work that fabulous mixture into your locks. Put a shower cap over that noggin of yours and let the mixture sit on your hair for 30-60 minutes. While it is in your hair, you can kill time by reading a book, browsing articles on ChelseaCrockett.com (hint hint 😉  ), whatever floats your boat!

Step 3:

Rinse all that goo out of your hair and shampoo and condition that mane! You may have to shampoo twice to get all of that oil out.

Step 4:

Feel your silky smooth locks and tell yourself how happy you are that you checked out this very article.

How super duper easy was that?! Now comment below and tell me how this works out for ya!

XOXO, Chels
