5 Best Avocado Face and Hair Mask For Shiny Hair and Glowing Skin
These DIY avocado-based skin and hair masks will make you look like a princess for sure
Avocados are good in salads and also as a dip but do you know that they are extremely moisturizing and nourishing for your hair and skin too. The reason being avocados contain natural oils and both polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids. While these oils can be beneficial to all hair types, they’re especially helpful for dry, dehydrated hair. The fruit is also rich in vitamins that can nourish the scalp and help hair look healthy, shiny, and hydrated. Avocado is also a great source of biotin, and adding this B-complex vitamin back into the diet may help hair to grow more healthily.
Avocados are also very beneficial to the skin. They contain vitamin A, it is known as the beauty vitamin because it helps protect the skin from damage. It helps keep your skin looking younger! The oil in avocado is similar to our own so it absorbs easily into both skin and hair. Avocado oil helps your skin retain moisture for a soft and supple quality.
