Avocado Hair Benefits: How Healthy is this Trending Superfood?

Avocado Hair Benefits: How Healthy is this Trending Superfood?

Avocado is on the tip of everyone's tongue, and for many years now, health experts have been praising the humble avocado. Even here at Cliphair, avocado ranks pretty high on our top natural hair care treatments.

This funny little fruit – no, it’s not a vegetable – is filled with potassium, amino acids, and really healthy essential fats. It is also loaded with protein; far more than any other fruit. So, the benefits for the body are remarkable. Avocados can help your skin shine, your hair grow strong, and your nails stay firm. They can help clear up acne and even contribute to a faster metabolism.

In short, the avocado is the superhero of the fruit world and you should be exploiting its full potential. If you lather your locks with mashed up avocado, it will feel weird (it really does), but you’ll be left with shinier, stronger follicles.

Here are some of the key benefits of using avocado masks on your hair – as well as real hair extensions – will help you get to grips with what this super fruit can do.

 

Moisturises Hair

There are all kinds of things that can strip the hair of essential oils and moisture. For one thing, we all wash our hair far too often. This leaves it dry and brittle, which makes it prone to snapping and split ends. The weather is a constant strain too, particularly during the winter. The harsh temperatures can leave locks feeling distinctly lifeless. The good news is that mixing an avocado with one egg and half a tablespoon of raw honey creates a restorative mask with the power to revive drab, dull hair. It works because the oil in avocados is one of the few natural substances that can move through the cuticle and actively add moisture.

Encourages Faster Growth

If you struggle with quite thin hair, you’ll be glad to know that avocados are a great way to encourage rapid growth and thickness. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t simply have to ‘put up’ with unfeasibly fine hair. There are ways to trick the follicles into increasing their rate of production and generating silkier, stronger strands. On the other hand, it is important to note that nutritional deficiencies are one of the most common causes of unhealthy hair. So, even just eating lots of avocado is a great remedy. 

 

Rejuvenates Hair

You might have quite thick and healthy hair, but does it always look as shiny and vital as it should? You may notice that, sometimes, the follicles are a little duller than at others. This can be explained by an almost endless variety of factors; it could everything from the weather to a sudden temperature change, a switch to a new shampoo, or even stress. Fortunately, your new best friend the avocado is on hand to fix your follicular woes. For a spectacular hair mask, mix an avocado with one banana and a teaspoon of olive oil. Apply to the hair and leave to rest for 15-20 minutes, before washing thoroughly.
