7 Reasons to Keep Avocados Around for Your Health, Hair and Beauty

7 avocado beauty benefits

Avocados truly are nature’s fruit for overall health and beauty. It has quite the amount of uses and benefits, but here are some key ones to zone in on…

#1 They are great source of good fat and protein. You make shakes, put them in salads and even make avocado mac n cheese for a healthy alternative.

#2 Improve your skin. Just by consuming more avocados I truly have seen a difference in my skin and less breakouts. However you can create avocado skin masks as well. Avocados contain oleic acid, which is helpful in combating skin problems like acne.

#3 Create your own DIY Hair Conditioner using Avocado. It will leave your hair feeling super soft.

#4 Avocado oil is a good choice when using the LOC method because it penetrates the hair shaft.

#5 Combat frizz. The natural oils in Avocado will leave your hair less frizzy and more manageable.

#6 It makes a great scalp treatment. Heal dry itchy scalp with amino acids and the Vitamin E found in Avocados.

#7 Add shine to your hair. Hair masks with Avocado will leave your hair glistening.

An Intensive DIY Deep Conditioner Using Avocado

Ingredients

1 Banana

1/2 Avocado

1 Egg (just the yolk)

1/2 cup raw coconut oil

2 tablespoons organic honey

Tip: I personally hate to mess with Hass Avocados. They are just way too small! It’s pretty annoying trying to work to get something out this little thing. Try Florida Avocados they are easier to work with and you get more out of them. I stay having one of these babies in my house.

  1. Do you just simply mix all the ingredients above by hand to make the conditioner or do you use a food processor? How long do you leave it on the hair? Do you have to cover hair with plastic cap?

  2. Good morning,

    I’m a newbie, not only to this beautiful blog, but also to the natural hair scene. I’m a transition(er) and I just cut my last chemically processed strand yesterday(5/25/16). My question is: Can I use REALLY REALLY ripe avocado with this process? I had some in the fridge, but they’re browning. I usually just throw them away, but I’m wondering it I can still put them to good use at this stage.

    Thanks

      1. Thank you Mrs. Ariane. Now I can stop wasting food and convert it to something new. Thank you so much!!!
