You just read Part A, which was about the benefits of mango, papaya, and oranges. Now let’s get into Part B, which will be about peaches, apples, pomegranate, and pineapples. As it’s starting to get a little warmer outside, we’re probably going to have a lot more of these items within our kitchen. Whether it’s for making smoothies, slushy or just to have as a refreshing snack. So what if our refreshing snack can also work as a refreshing product for our hair? Not only is this cost-effective because you are now getting two items for the price of one, but as you chop one piece of fruit for your snack, you can also chop another piece of fruit for your DIY product. So let’s get into it.
- Peaches contain vitamin A, C, E, and K
- It also contains protein, copper, manganese, and potassium. If you’re wondering why these nutrients are so important for the hair, then here it goes. Protein helps to strengthen the hair so it doesn’t fall or break off like loose leaves in the fall time. It also helps to repair the hair strands, when they become weak and brittle as a result of heat or chemical damage. Furthermore, it nourishes the hair and brings life back into the scalp since it ultimately removes dead skin cells, which is crucial for healthy hair growth. In addition to that, it also allows the hair to regain its elasticity. Protein is great for the hair but too much of it can cause the opposite effect. Meaning, your hair can actually become brittle, stiff, dry, and eventually fall off if it consumes too much protein.
