Benefits of Avocado for Winter Hair Health
We're all about healthy hair care here at Q-Redew! One thing we've seen quite a few of our fans use in their hair routine is avocado! The wintertime is a great time to include this superfruit in your hair care routine to fight the dryness in the cold air! Here are some of the benefits.
Many of us with textured hair often have issues with keeping our hair moisturized. This is because the natural oils from our scalp take longer to travel down the hair shaft due to the curls and bends in the strands. Thankfully, there's help!
Having high levels of monounsaturated fatty acids, or the "good fats", avocados can be used to improve the condition of the hair by acting as a moisturizer for dry or damaged hair. Winter brings cold and dry air that makes moisture even harder to maintain!
Creating a hair mask and using along with the Q-Redew Hair Steamer will help infuse moisture into the hair even better as the steam opens up the hair cuticle to allow moisture in. When the hair is properly moisturized, it is less likely to break which means you will retain more length.
Prevent Hair Loss/Promote Hair Growth
Scalp damage can slow down and even prevent hair growth. Vitamin E avocado can repair this damage to promote scalp health, which will lead to healthy hair growth. Its antioxidant properties can help keep hair follicles unclogged to allow nutrients in and stimulate growth. This is why avocado masks have been used by many as an effective natural remedy for treating hair loss.
Avocados are high in Vitamin E, which works to protect & strengthen hair. They're also rich in protein and Vitamin B, one of the most essential vitamins for optimal hair health. These all work together to keep your strands strong!
While using avocado on your hair can provide great benefits, the BEST way to get all those nutrients in your system and, eventually, in your hair, is to include a nice helping of avocado in your diet!
Monounsaturated fatty acids makes avocado a great natural sunscreen to protect the hair from extreme weather. Because of its high smoke point, avocado oil is often used a heat protectant doing a blow-out before straightening the hair to prevent permanent heat damage.
