Last night, Cardi B documented a DIY mask that she used on her and Kulture, giving their locks some serious moisture. In addition to the mother-daughter bonding time, her before and after pics really tell the full story of what a good mask can do – let’s get into it.
Cardi’s Mask Recipe
- Start with an avocado
- Blend in argan oil
- Add a big XL scoop of mayo
- Work in a small amount of honey
- Crack an egg into the mixture
- Pour in A LOT of black castor oil
- Add olive oil
- Combine with a second avocado in the blender– make sure it is blended down well so no avocado meat/chunks gets stuck in the hair
- Add a banana
- + one more egg!
- Blend until super smooth
To make the mask, Cardi uses 2 avocados, Shea Moisture Argan Oil, mayonnaise, castor oil, olive oil, 2 eggs, honey, and then a banana. She doesn’t skimp on mayo or oil but limits the amount honey, so the mask doesn’t get the hair too sticky (a must if you’re working with a child under 2). She pours in a ton of castor oil – “put it all in that bitch” – adds the eggs, and also blends in a banana.
Good for you and your hair
Cardi points out that if something is good for you, it’s good for your hair – you wouldn’t add soda to your mane, for example, but it’s safe to go wild with avocados. After blending the concoction together in a blender (“shake the table”) until it is totally smooth, she applies the Cardi Cream to Kulture’s freshly washed hair, allowing it to bring out her daughter’s perfect little curl pattern. “This treatment is really good for curl patterns,” says Cardi who admits her hair does not get curly at all, but she still needs the moisture. “It’s a good hair mask to help your hair grow – anything that’s good for your body you can put in your hair,” she continues.
Natural not nappy
While waiting for the mask to penetrate her tresses, Cardi posts TBTs of her natural texture, with one vid noting that her hair isn’t “nappy” – “it’s naturale.” “You need hair that you can stand under the sun, and you can get into a fight and it’s still going to be there,” she jokes – but she’s right! Natural hair is strong, and beautiful, and society does have us “f**ked up about it.”
Once the mask sets in and Cardi’s hair is fully dried, her hair is shiny and clearly mega healthy. “Treat your hair ladies,” Cardi posts.
