Stop that Itchy Scalp


  • 1 avocado, pitted and mashed
  • 4 tblspn sour cream
  • 3 tblspn extra-virgin cold-pressed olive oil


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth.
  2. Wet hair and apply mixture. Massage into scalp, and rub through with fingers to tips. Run a fine-toothed comb through your hair to evenly distribute the mixture.
  3. Place either a plastic shower cap or towel on your head; leave conditioner on for 20 minutes. The heat created by covering the head allows the mixture to more fully penetrate the scalp and hair.
  4. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Shampoo and style as usual.
