The main ingredient for your chip dip could help fight hair loss.

Avocado contributes to an array of good health and beauty factors. It provides nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit."

The Benefits of Avocado

They are high in vitamins B and E, which work at the cellular level to protect and strengthen hair. Vitamin B is essential for hair growth and Vitamin E helps with hair's elasticity and also helps to repair damage on the scalp, which may slow or prevent hair growing. Avocados are also a rich source of proteins and amino acids. This can help promote hair growth while strengthening your strands.

DIY Hair Loss Mask

Here's what you'll need to create this quick and easy at-home avocado hair mask.

You'll need

3. Apply the mask to damp hair from root to tip. Uut on a shower cap to lock in moisture and let the mask sit for 30-40 minutes.

Why an avocado hair treatment?

They can help revitalize dry, damaged and lifeless hair. This wonder fruit not only deep conditions your tresses, but your scalp as well and can leave your locks looking more voluminous, and full. If you have a lot of damage caused by heat styling or chemicals, deep conditioning regularly with avocado can leave your hair feeling softer and smoother. Brittle and breakage prone hair can be helped with the good old avocado used to nourish it. Using avocado oil on your scalp may also help combat hair loss.

There are so many recipes online featuring the avocado. Personally to consume it, I like to mix it in with my eggs or enjoy it as good old guacamole with a portion of whole grain tortilla chips!

*Note to my fellow blondes out there!

I have mentioned this before. Using avocado on your hair is great, but be very careful because leaving avocado on your hair too long and/or if you use too much your hair color can turn a bit green! User discretion is highly advised.
