Hair Mask

You use hair care products every week, but do you even know what’s actually in them?  Check your labels!  Chances are, you have a collection of hair products that are synthetically derived and filled with substances that can potentially harm your hair and your body as they absorb into your bloodstream. All the skin and hair care products we use add up, even trace amounts of toxic chemicals can accumulate in our bodies and burden our bodies, disrupt our hormones, and damage our nervous and reproductive systems. 

My go-to product after I wash my hair 2-3 times a week is a hair mask.  It's a must for me to keep healthy hair!  I need extra love because of my long, curly hair.  I add the hair mask in the shower and then I clip it up at the top of my head and let it sit as long as possible while I exfoliate my body, wash my face and shave. My goal is to leave it on 5-15 minutes a couple times a week.

Here is a favorite multi-use hair product that has healthy ingredients and works well for my curly, long, and snarly hair:

One Condition Hair MaskThis rich hair mask provides a boost of moisture and shine thanks to ultra-nourishing Coconut Oil, while a cocktail of botanical proteins work together to help strengthen weakened hair, prevent further breakage and encourage voluminous, healthy hair with our multi-use hair mask.

This product is amazing because it has so many uses!
LimeLife's multitasking hair mask can truly do it all: Style, soften, and strengthen. Meadowfoam Seed Oil, known for its ability to help repair damaged hair cuticles and prevent further breakage and split ends, expands each hair strand for a thickening, voluminous effect. Coconut Oil gently penetrates the hair shaft to soften hair and provide a boost of shine and moisture, for greater elasticity and less chance of breakage. A hybrid of botanical proteins, such as Bamboo, Quinoa, Algae, and Horsetail, work in tandem with Biotin to help strengthen weak hair. The result: your hair feels revitalized with a stunning shine, a luxuriously silky texture, and healthier looking than ever before!

Avocado
Are you utilizing the avocado in your health journey?
Here is why you should:
 Avocado has protein, fat, carbs and fiber.Avocado has a little protein on top of the fat, so it can be used as part of your protein source in a meal, but I suggest adding a meat protein and/or  protein supplement to your meal with avocado, so you're getting around 25 grams of protein.

How much avocado is suggested in a meal on the THM plan?
  If you're in weight loss mode, it's recommended to eat 1/2 avocado in a meal because it's higher in calories due to the fat. It's kind of like nuts, which are suggested to limit if you're trying to lose weight.   But if avocado is your only fat and protein source, it's ok to do a whole avocado here occasionally.
Avocados are a wonderful immune system builder, antioxidant, great for your eyesight and have 7 grams of fiber in half of one.

Avocados pair so well with eggs in the morning or even on your toast for a healthy crossover meal.  

Avocados are great on your salads!
Rhonda’s ranch, fresh cilantro, spritz of lemon and avocado 🥑 
I make venison burger each week for easy meals. I added some frozen cauliflower rice and a tomato for a hot salad and topped with guacamole 🥑 
Tuna lettuce boats topped with avocado.

What if you really don't like avocado, but want the anti-inflammatory benefits from eating them?
Use Avocado OIL!
Zero taste, and still has all the health benefits!
Use 1 TBSP (15g fat) in an S setting or 1 tsp (5g fat) in an E/FP setting.

How do I get the best tasting oil and protective benefits?
Buy organic if at all possible.
Select avocado oils in dark bottles (this protects the oil from light - key for protecting those wonderful health properties!)
Use raw or at lower temps to get all the goodness that avocado oil has to offer.
Guess what? 
You can add avocado oil to your shakes to get
all the healthy omega 3 fats, anti-inflammatory benefits, and it has zero taste!
You can also buy frozen avocados to add to your shakes.

Do you have a baby?
 Avocados are the best first food to introduce to your baby! 
  Think about how easy it is to bring an avocado and a baby spoon anywhere to feed your baby quickly without mashing it up or making a mess.

Have you tried avocado in pudding?
Avocados are so creamy and smooth and make wonderful puddings and even ice cream. 
Try the Trimmy Choco Pudding using avocado in the Trim Healthy Table , page 439.
