I am absolutely crazy about avocados: they’re delicious, nutritious, packed with healthy fats, and can even be used to moisturize our skin and hair. We’ve used avocado as a hair mask, we’ve used it as a face mask, and now, we’re itching to see what other ways we can try to get the very most out of our avocados (besides eating them, of course). We think these ten unusual avocado beauty uses are a pretty good place to start.
1. Revitalize your hair and scalp.
Lest you think that the only health and beauty benefits lie in the avocado itself, let us introduce you to the magic of avocado oil. Many of avocado’s beauty uses take advantage of its rich nourishing properties and healthy fats, so it makes sense that the lightweight oil derived from the fruit (yup) can help to soothe and moisturize a dry or dandruff-prone scalp. Dispense a few drops of oil in your hand and massage it into your scalp, then work it through the lengths and ends of your hair as well. It’s easily absorbed, which means it shampoos out clean, rather than lingering in the hair like some other oils we know (ahem, coconut).
