Everyone jokes that every family needs a lawyer and a doctor, but I’d like to add make up artist to that list. My cousin Erica is a fabulous professional makeup artist and the beauty blogger behind Pretty Pleased, her site featuring beauty tips and tricks, her insider advice. I thought she could bring a little of that beauty wisdom over to The Kitchy Kitchen, so she’ll be here blogging once a month. Stay tuned for all things pretty and lovely!

This is a great moisturizing and conditioning hair mask for when your locks need a little lovin’. Avocado and coconut oil are great moisturizers for both the scalp and hair, and milk is a wonderful conditioner. For shiny, healthier hair, mix ingredients into a paste and apply from roots to ends. Leave it in for at least 30 minutes with your hair pinned up or in a plastic shower cap. Shampoo twice before styling your hair.
