Default avocado/egg deep conditioner-- apply to wet or dry hair?

Okay so I came across this recipe for a deep conditioner. It does not say whether your hair should be dry or wet. What do you think? Anyway here's the recipe...

1 avocado
1 egg yolk

Mash up the avocado either using a blender or potato masher. Add the egg yolk and mix until the two ingredients are well combined. Gently apply the mixture to your hair, making sure to spread it evenly. When you are done applying it to your hair, sit back and relax for approximately 15-20 minutes. Then, rinse the mixture out with warm water and shampoo as usual. The natural oils of the avocado do a really nice job of moisturizing drab and dull hair. For an added treat, give yourself a mud mask while waiting for the conditioner to do its trick!

Ummm...I think you can do it either way, but speaking as a lab tech, I think that if you can spread it through dry hair it will penetrate even better. Your hair will absorb water when it's wet, and that water will take up space that the DT could sink into.

I like those DT's on dry hair before I shampoo. I would add a little oil/honey to avoid having the egg yolk stick. And rinse with cool water only.
