Did you know??
Although using avocados and bananas are all the buzz now to get soft and shiny hair, all it will get you is a messy kitchen and bathroom. These products are great to help your hair for one day, but the proteins in them are way too big for your hair to absorb. And unless you are going to use them each day (yikes!), then you should head to a beauty supply store and check out some Vegan products that use "hydrolyzed" proteins - proteins from avocados and bananas that actually are small enough to help your hair.

Creamy Vegan Garlic Hummus


This hummus is best served cold with homemade pita chips.

You'll need a superhuman food processor or blender to get it well incorporated and creamy.

You'll need:
8 oz chickpeas (either drained can or soaked for 12-16 hours and then drained)
5 tbsp minced garlic
1/4 c olive oil
1/8 c water
2 tbsp tahini
red pepper flakes to taste
salt and pepper to taste

Blend chickpeas to paste. Add all ingredients in order and blend under smooth. Test for consistency (hummus should be homogenous and smooth, should be able to cling to spoon when turned over). and taste and adapt as needed.
