5 Amazing Ways Avocado is a Miracle Ingredient For Your Hair

Fellow avocado devotees, smashed avo enthusiasts, and guacamole addicts – we have news for you: you’re about to love avocado even more.

 

Avocados are basically synonymous with happiness. Their bright, green, creamy insides have become a staple ingredient in breakfasts, smoothies, and even face masks all around the world.

 

They’re rich and creamy, and filled with healthy fats that promote brain and heart health. Plus They make everything you put them on taste miles more yummy.

Basically, if there was ever a world without avocado in it, we certainly wouldn’t want to be part of it.

 

The humble avocado is one of the most versatile, and nutritious, foods around. One of its main superpowers, however, has fallen a little under the radar: the superpower of restoring moisture and hydration to dry hair.

 

Dryness is not your hairs friend. It can lead to breakage, split ends, frizz and overall lackluster hair quality.

 

There are few ingredients that can truly nourish dry hair by moisturizing hair shafts from within – and avocado is one of them.

 

It contains magical healing properties that will restore the driest tresses back to their hydrated state of glory. Here’s how.

 

Fatty Acids = Long-Lasting Hydration

One of the avocados major strengths is in its fatty amino acids. These acids work hard to coat your hair shaft, locking in much-needed moisture, while avocado’s natural oils ensure your hair stays well hydrated.

Vitamin-Rich Goodness

Avocados contain a mixed bag of vitamins, including Vitamin A, D, E, and B6 – feeding your hair truckloads of nutrients. They’re also rich in minerals like copper and iron, which work to soothe your scalp and promote healthy growth.

Queen of Antioxidants

Avocados are chock-full of antioxidants, which help protect tresses from free radicals and damage – therefore extending the lifespan of your healthy, hydrated hair.

Reverses Damage

Forever your hero, avo will help repair the damage dryness has caused your hair by deeply conditioning it and feeding it the good stuff it needs to be restored to optimal health.

Encourages Growth

By unclogging your hair follicles, avocado will help to stimulate new hair growth for an even fuller, more robust and beautiful mane.
