Most of us know avocados are healthy for the inside of our bodies but what about the outside? Good news! An avocado hair mask can do wonders for your hair.
First things first , avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable and actually belongs in the berry family. Loaded with potassium (nearly twice as much as bananas), and amino acids, this creamy power food is hard to beat. Need protein? Avocados contain about four grams, among the highest of all fruit. And did you know you can substitute avocados for butter in many recipes – now you do!
When it comes to hair, avocados really “shine”. Historical evidence shows that as far back as early Egypt people used avocado to prevent hair loss and as a natural moisturizer. Today we still use it for its moisturizing properties; it makes hair shiny and supple and keeps the hair and skin moisturized. Perhaps the best way to utilize the avocado’s many beneficial properties for hair is as a mask.
Here are 4 ways an avocado hair mask can help your hair:
- Moisturizes Hair
- Promotes Hair Growth
- Prevents Dandruff
- Revitalizes Hair
