Good for: Strengthening and deep conditioning hair, alone or mixed with mayonnaise until the mixture is mint green in color.

Limitations: Avocado is a common allergen, so even though you are not ingesting it, ask your allergist if you are allergic.

Can replace: Store-bought, deep-conditioning treatments for hair.
