Combine shea butter and the essential oils in the mixing bowl. Heat in microwave for 2-3 minutes or until shea butter is melted.

Mash the avocado pieces in a separate bowl. Try to break up all clumps. Beat until a creamy mixture is formed. You may also use a hand mixer, but it is not required.

Combine the avocado and the essential oils in a container. Stir until mixture is even.

After washing hair apply mixture to hair soaking wet hair, generously. Store remaining mix in the refrigerator. Leave deep conditioner in for at least 30 minutes or one hour for best results.
