Change in plans....

I wasn't planning a post for today but I had to share this song. I really love She & Him... and I really love Christmas! So when I heard they were coming out with a Christmas album I just about died! I think this will be the #1 thing played at my house this Holiday Season!

11. Hair Guacamole?

Yes, you read that correctly. Hair Guac! Okay, okay I fib. Well, I did use avocado in my hair... but I left out the other ingredients. ;) I did however make a nice little hair mask. I found the recipe on thebeautydepartment.com . There's only consisted of avocado and olive oil, but I thought I would try and amp it up a bit by adding a few other products. I threw in some honey for extra shine and argan oil that I mentioned in my diy leave in conditioner post last week. After blending it all up I jumped in the shower to wash my hair. After that I got out and applied all of what I had made. Took a blow drying to it for a little over a minute and left it in for a little over 30 minutes. 

After I finally had all the nasty green stuff out I just left my hair to air-dry. The product left my hair a bit limp due to the oils, but I should have only put it half way up my head, not on the scalp. I really liked the fact my hair was really soft and had a lot less frizz. The results only lasted about a day. after taking my next shower I had to wash because the oils built up REALLY fast. So less is more in this case! 
Next i'm going to do a home hand milk bath. I've always wanted to do that so I figured I would share that as well. 

Hope everyone is having a great week. Don't forget to go vote on the contest my fiance and I are in!

I would love it if everyone could help me out by voting for my Fiance and I. We are couple #1 out of 5! The contest is open till the 15th, and you can vote each day. Once on the website, once on facebook (go to albums and like couple#1). Please and thank you to everyone in advance! this really would be a dream come true for us. Since we are working with such a tight budget this would make all the difference.
