This story is from our partner, Tone It Up! We’ll be sharing Tone It Up’s best fitness and healthy living tips. In today’s, Karena and Katrina will be showing you how to add shine to your hair and a glow to your skin with two of their favorite DIY mask recipes:

Hi everyone, it’s Katrina and Karena here from Tone It Up! Today we’re excited to be telling you about two DIY masks you can make for your hair and face. They are both so easy to make and for when you are in the mood for a relaxing evening at home. Plus, they will freshen up your pretty locks and clear your beautiful skin! The key ingredients in both of these masks are avocado and apple cider vinegar, both of which will make your hair shiny and soft and add a glow to your skin.

Here’s how to make them (be sure to pin the image below to remember it for later!)…

DIY Avocado Hair and Face Mask

To recap, here’s how to make these masks:

Avocado Hair Mask

You will need:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Blend all the ingredients together and massage into your hair from roots to ends, covering thoroughly.
  2. Let sit for 30 minutes.
  3. Shampoo well, then rinse with apple cider vinegar.


Avocado Face Mask

You will need:

  • ½ ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar

Instructions:

  1. Blend the ingredients together or mash in a bowl.
  2. Apply to your face and leave on for 15 minutes. Focus on your breathing and relax while letting it set.
  3. Rinse off with cool water and a damp cloth.

We love the avocado in these masks because it helps to moisturize and rejuvenate your hair and skin. The healthy fats act as an all-natural and super hydrating moisturizer. And let’s not forget about the apple cider vinegar (one of our favorite elixirs). You might remember us talking about the benefits of apple cider vinegar here on LaurenConrad.com last month. Not only is it good for your body, it’s great for your hair. It closes the cuticles, allowing your locks to lay flat for shinier hair that’s easy to style. It also acts as an astringent that clears your skin as well.

Now that you’ve read a bit about two of our favorite masks, we want to know…

Will you give our DIY avocado hair and face masks a try?

Let us know how they work for you in the comments below! And don’t forget to pin the image above so you will have it for later :-)

    I tried the face mask and it has left my skin feeling really smooth! While on I had a tingly feeling, which I took to meant that something was working on my skin;) I give it 5 stars, it’s easy to make, affordable for a broke college student, and a great stress reliever for 15 minutes through out my hectic day!

    My Name is Mrs. MCCART I was married to my husband for 10 years and we were both bless with three children, living together as one love, until 2012 when things was no longer the way the was [when he lost his job]. But when he later gets a new job 6 months after, he stated sleeping outside our matrimonial home. Only for me to find out that he was having an affair with the lady that gave he the job. since that day, when i called him, he don’t longer pick up my calls and he nothing since to come out good. Yet my husbands just still keep on seeing the lady. Until I met a very good friend of my who was also having a similar problem, who introduced me to a very good love spell caster. But i told her that if it has to do with things that i am not interested, but she said that it has nothing to do with pay first. but the only thing he was ask to do was just to go and buy the items to cast the spell, and that was what she did. And she gave me the spell caster e-mail address and phone number. When i contacted him, [email protected] i was so surprise when he said that if i have the faith that i will get my husband back in the nest three [3] day, and off which it was really so. but i was so shock that i did not pay any thing to prophet lord, but my husband was on his knells begging me and the children for forgiveness. This testimony is just the price i have to pay. This man Prophet lord is good and he is the author of my happiness. His e-mail address: [email protected]

    LOVED the face mask- I already put it in my calendar to do every Tuesday night :) The hair mask on the other hand… got a little messy. Make sure you blend it in a blender and NOT simply mash it up in a bowl. Whereever you rinse out your hair, the drain will definetely get clogged by the avocado clumps. It would also help to know how much vinegar to use when rinsing out your hair. I’m sitting at work right now and feel like the entire office can smell this lovely scent ;) Anywho, five stars for both- minus the labor, my hair feels and looks healthier than ever before. :)

    Avocado is sooo good for you, and using them in hair masks/treatments is a great way to use them up once they get overly ripe. http://makeyourhairgrowfaster.net/avocados-natures-super-fruit/

  • Aanchal

    Wow it seems fabulous and will obviously work great on hair. It is best hair loss treatment and face treatment.

    I have learn several good stuff here. Definitely worth blog for revisiting. Avocado is a wonderful ingredient for masks for dry or mature skin because of its well-known moisturizing properties. It is also beneficial for hair. Avocado hair mask gives natural shine and nourishment to hair. Thanks for such a wonderful update. http://www.xcsunnyhair.com/

  • Kat

    My buddies and I are making a spa for our neighbors. I’m totally trying this!

  • Geeta Ramdeo Mohan

    I tried both masks & it was very good . Blending is a far better route to take than mashing. I plan to continue with the routine. Very pleased !
