In this tutorial, I’m going to share an apple cider vinegar, yogurt, honey, and avocado hair mask recipe that’s going to leave your hair very soft and shiny.

It’s super easy to make, and all of the ingredients are very easy to find. Let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Honey
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Yogurt
  • Avocado
  • Banana
  • Blender
  • Plastic cap/bag

1. Add honey to a blender

Use only a squirt of honey. You don’t need a lot, since you don’t want your hair to be sticky, but we do want the properties of the honey. 

Apple cider vinegar

2. Add apple cider vinegar

Add ⅓ cup of apple cider vinegar. An apple cider vinegar hair mask is great for oiliness in the hair and balancing all of the grease from the other ingredients.

Make sure you mix the bottle before you use it, and add enough to the blender so you can blend without damaging it.

Banana and avocado

3. Add banana and avocado

You only need half of each fruit, so go ahead and eat the other half.

This amount will be more than enough for everyone.

Coconut oil

4. Add coconut oil

Add 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Don’t go crazy with this one, since we already added avocado. You don’t need a lot of it.


5. Add yogurt

Add 1 tbsp of natural yogurt. The yogurt should be as natural as it can be, so no Greek yogurt and no added sugar.

6. Blend

Blend until you get a creamy consistency.

How to apply

I love to do my hair masks after exercising or when I have very dirty hair and I know I need to wash it.

Brushing hair

1. Brush

Before you apply, brush your hair. You don’t want any knots in your hair when applying.

2. Apply the mask to the roots on top of your head

When applying your hair mask only to the top layer of your hair, you’re not getting all of the benefits of the hair mask, so you want to apply it all the way in.

Instead, part your hair and apply all of the product throughout the different parts.

Applying hair mask

As you apply, don’t forget to apply it in the back as well. 

Applying hair mask

Repeat this process by dividing sections of hair.

Apply the mask to the roots until you’ve completely covered all of the roots on the top of your hair.

3. Apply the mask to the roots in the back

Divide the hair in half, separating the top from the top, and apply the extra product to the back of your head.

Massaging scalp

4. Massage your scalp

Don’t use a lot of friction.

Instead, just use the tips of your fingers to massage your head to make sure all of the hair is soaked in the yogurt and honey hair mask.

5. Apply the mask to the mids and ends

Divide your hair in half and apply the extra product to the middle and ends of your hair.

Remember to soak the ends of your hair.

Don’t make any friction to the ends of your hair because that will break it.

6. Add the mask to the top of your head

I put the extra product on the top of my head because the fringe is where I apply the most heat.

Covering hair

7. Cover your hair and let it sit for 30 minutes (optional)

Pull your hair back in a bun and cover it with a cap or plastic bag.

This is an optional step that will help maintain the heat in your head and help the hair mask absorb better.

Letting hair sit

Let your hair sit for at least 15-30 minutes. I left mine for over four hours which is just as fine.

Clean hair

8. Wash it out

Use a good shampoo and wash and dry your hair as normal.
