DIY Beauty: Avocado, Banana and Coconut Oil Hair Mask

diy-beauty-avocado-banana-coconut-oil-hair-mask-2After the success of the face mask I posted about last week I wanted to try something else avocado based and a hair mask seemed like it’d be easy and I do find that good hair masks make a difference to my hair. This recipe used three ingredients, all of them I already had, and you can find the full recipe and instructions here if you want to give it a go.

I bought this coconut oil a couple of months ago now I think but I wanted to give the three ways it recommends you try it a go and review it on all three. I’m always a bit wary of those miracle products that seem to appear every so often, the kind that does everything you want and works every time if you believe the adverts and it seems all the beauty YouTubers rave about it.

If you want to try this Superdrug version of coconut oil then you can find it here. It’s the same product, I think it has the same ingredients but new packaging, at least it’s the same lot of reviews. You know you’ve taken a while to review a product when they change the packaging. I think I prefer the new look of it, though it doesn’t make any difference to the product inside it’s just a less clinical or ‘value product line’ looking label to me.

With the recent hot weather (well, recent when I made the order) I realised I didn’t have any sun cream and decided that as Superdrug had a half off price on my favourite sun cream brand I decided to make a small order. But then it kind of grew a bit. Almost everything in this order I want to do a proper review, or mini one, once I’ve had a proper go with them so this is sort a small overview and a bit of a small first impression for what I’ve seen so far. Everything was bought from the Superdrug website.
