Aside from my morning tea, one thing that gets me going in the morning is avocado toast. Who doesn’t love avocados drizzled with olive oil and sesame seeds? Enter the Kourtney Kardashian avocado hair smoothie, a concoction her hairstylist, Andrew Fitzsimons, who has also styled Ashley Graham, Joan Smalls, and Hailey Baldwin, discovered when caring for her hair. The smoothie isn’t your typical sweet, fruit-based blend; it’s a mixture of honey, lemon juice, and avocados that you don’t drink but simply apply to your scalp and hair.

“I was intrigued by the smoothies that she was drinking, and I created a hair smoothie, an avocado hair smoothie,” says Fitzsimons on kourtneykardashian.com. “It’s a natural detangler.”

We all know that avocados are superfoods that keep our skin glowing, but who knew that mixing them with lemon (which is a great remedy for dandruff, by the way), olive oil, and honey would combat dull hair?

Fascinated? It’s easy. Here’s the recipe for the Kourtney Kardashian avocado hair smoothie: Just mix 1 1/2 avocados with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons of manuka honey, and the juice of ½ a lemon. Blend until smooth, about 30 seconds. Finally, comb the mixture through your hair and let it sit for 45 minutes covered.

We can’t promise instant results or that you’ll look exactly like Kourtney Kardashian, but using the concoction over time should add moisture and the shine to your hair that you’ve been dying for. Watch the entire video on Kourtney’s website and then head to your nearest blender.


 

It’s all about the rainbow braids!

She styles them herself with yarn she buys from the craft store. To finish her entire head takes upward of 30 hours. But as she tells us, color is such a motivating factor in her life that it’s “absolutely” worth it.

The designer, stylist, and YouTuber, 33, has long been obsessed with bold, splashy hues. In 2011, she started her own paper decor company, Studio Mucci, thus earning her the nickname “The Tassel Fairy.” When she’s not spreading magic through her crafts, she uses her YouTube channel to inspire other women to be confident and, of course, “to live colorfully.”
