I really like how my hair gets curly-ish when it's wet. You would not believe how hard it is though! Haha, the avocado smoothie dries to a cement-like consistency! It feels like my hair is going to break off if I bend it. Scary. Here is my typical eye makeup combo: a line of black followed by a line of white (sometimes I'll use silver). It makes me feel wise yet youthful at the same time. I don't know if my mental state echoes the makeup though!

I love painting on a tiny mouth! It's so funny looking and weird.
Oh yes, so about the avocado smoothie aka happy accident hair treatment. It is a filipino drink that a friend introduced to me a few years back. It involves combining avocado, milk, and sugar. Sounds good right? We made it yesterday, substituting with soy milk and honey, and it tasted none too great. =( So, since my hair has always tended to be dry, and knowing avocado is good for it, I tried it this morning as a leave-in conditioner type thing. I can't wait to see how it is after I shower. It took a surprisingly small amount to fully saturate my hair, so I think I have enough for ... maybe 4 more uses? If it works well I can kiss Lush's avocado leave in conditioner goodbye. That thing costs like 20 bucks for a small jar! A single avocado is only a dollar! I have high hopes for this smoothie treatment because after rinsing the residue off my hands, the skin still had a slightly oily feel to them. A good sign!
