Avocado Hair Mask: 5 Amazing Recipes for Healthy Hair Naturally

Avocados are not only one of the most delicious fruit ever but also nourishing for the hair. Today, I will break down the Avocado Hair mask recipe and why it’s so famous that even the rap queen Cardi B uses this recipe not only for her own hair but on her daughter Kulture’s hair. Avocados are delicious, a perfect source of Biotin, and laden with many other nutrients, the texture, and profile of this fruit are amazing. While one takes some time to develop the taste of this fruit, at least that was the case for me, you can definitely try this on your hair as a mask. Avocados are rich in Vit E, an antioxidant that promotes healthy hair.

While consuming the fruit will bring you all kinds of health benefits, putting this on your hair will bring instant effect. If you are looking for natural ways to condition your hair, this will definitely work for you. Avocado- the superfood of the decade, is filled with fatty acids, like oleic acid and palmitic acid, and linoleic acid. It contains diverse nutrients that help maintain the health of the hair and restore its former shine. This mask will nourish your hair and add volume and definition to hair. I tried this recipe to revive my postpartum hair, and this has definitely worked for me and I am sure it will turn out great for you too.

Avocado Hair Mask Benefits:

Ultra Hydrating — These masks deeply hydrate and condition your hair. If your hair is dry and damaged, this will hydrate your hair all the way from the roots to the tip. Avocado is rich in nutrients such as potassium and amino acids, and instantly rejuvenates and nourishes dry hair. When your hair dries, it becomes easier for your hair to break. When used in hair masks, avocado helps condition the hair, strengthens it from the roots, and nourishes it to the end.

Stimulates Hair GrowthAvocado hair mask stimulates hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy. A healthy scalp means healthy hair growth. This deep conditioner uses real fruit instead of oil. This is because fruits are rich in minerals and benefits that are lost when extracting oil from the fruit. Rich in biotin and vitamin D, this mask boosts hair growth.

De Frizzes Hair — This mask helps restore hair moisture and traps all nutrients. Moisturized hair resembles a smoother, glossier, and easier-to-handle mane. It promotes scalp health and is excellent at combating dandruff and other fungal diseases of the scalp. It instantly moisturizes the dry scalp and forms a natural barrier that protects the scalp from many inflammations. Healthier hair growth, also makes avocado a great growth promoter.

Protects against free radical damage UV, pollution, heat and free radical damage from styling products often damage hair irreparably. Avocado Hair Conditioner contains antioxidants that help protect the scalp and hair from free radical damage.

Reduces hair loss — A healthy scalp always means a more hostile environment for hair growth. Avocados help clear follicles, increase blood flow, and stimulate growth. This mask will leave your hair so smooth and untangled that you will not experience any breakage while combing. It’s been ages since my comb gently glided through my hair, what surprised me was that I had less hair on the brush and more hair on the scalp. Hair conditioning prevents hair damage, dryness, and split ends. Less hair on the brush and more hair on the scalp.
