    Can Avocado Help In Treating Dry Hair?

    Most of us face the issue of dull and dry hair during the winters. When the scalp doesn't have the right amount of moisture, it becomes dry leading to dandruff and other scalp problems that pave the way to hair fall.


    Do not worry about your dull and dry hair anymore. We have the right solution for you here. In this article, we'll discuss how to get rid of dry hair using avocado. Avocado contains proteins and natural oils that form a protective layer on the hair. Vitamin A in avocado helps in boosting the sebum production so that there's enough moisture on the scalp. Also, applying avocado helps in improving the blood flow of the scalp as it is a rich source of amino acids.

    Here are some remedies using avocado for frizz-free hair.


    Avocado And Coconut Oil

    Coconut oil helps in moisturising the scalp and hair follicles. It helps in preventing hair damage and breakage.

    Take a ripe avocado. Mash it to make a smooth paste. Now add 2 tbsp of coconut oil into it and mix the ingredients well. Apply this mask on your hair. Make sure that you cover the roots and tips of your hair. You can leave it on for about 30 minutes and cover your hair with a shower cap. After 30 minutes you can wash it off with normal water. You can follow this procedure two times a week.


    Avocado And Lemon Juice

    Lemon helps in maintaining the pH balance of the scalp.

    Mash the ripe avocado in a clean bowl. Add a tbsp of lemon juice into the avocado paste and combine the ingredients well enough to make a mask. Apply this on your damp hair with the help of a brush and leave it on for 30-40 minutes. After 40 minutes you can wash it off using cold water.
