·         100ml of fresh milk
·         3 tsp of olive oil
~~ You will also need a blender for this mask~~





Benefits for your face:

Simply blend all the ingredients together and the hair mask is done! Take a small amount and leave aside for the face mask. Apply the rest to dry hair wrap in clingfilm or a plastic bag, for best results then wrap a hot towel over everything and relax for 30 minutes. Remember this mask contains raw egg so rinse off in cool water, you don’t want to be scrambling those eggs! Then wash your hair with a shampoo and conditioner of your choice.

For the face mask you want a thicker consistency so add the other 1/5 cup of oats and re-blend. Apply to clean dry skin and wait 15-30 minutes and rinse off in cool water. While rising off do so in gentle circular movements over the face to get all the exfoliating goodness from the oats.  Remember this mask contains raw egg, so avoid contact with eyes or mouth.

Once blended the mask should have a lovely smooth consistently which is pleasant to apply.
