Okay so it's no secret that Aussies absolutely LOVE avocados and Smashed Avo is pretty much a staple on most breakfast menus but I wanted to take this opportunity to give you the low-down on how good they really are for you and the benefits they have on your hair and scalp.
The humble avocado can aid in preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth. They can also be used to improve the condition of your hair by acting as a moisturiser for dry or damaged hair. We use certified organic avocado oil in our Repair Elixir for this exact reason as did the early Egyptians.
Hair loss may be a result of a vitamin deficiency, hormones (post pregnancy is very common) or of external stresses on your hair.
Hair loss & breakage occurs when hair becomes dry and damaged from exposure to extreme heat, sun or cold.
You may also contribute to hair loss and damaged hair by using chemically loaded hair products or styling tools such as hair dryers or curling irons.
Always be sure to use hair products with natural ingredients and heat protection. All Revelry Hair Co products contain built in UV & thermal protection and are free from SLS, SLES, PEGs, Parabens and hash chemicals.
Vitamin deficiency can cause hair loss or hair to grow slowly.
Avocados 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.
Vitamin E helps repair damage on the scalp, which may slow or prevent hair growing.
Healthy hair grows half an inch every month.
Both eating avocados and using the oil in a hair mask is the best ways to promote regular hair growth. Use Repair Elixir on both your hair & scalp for incredible results.
See our Avocado Smoothie Bowl recipe below
2 bananas sliced and frozen
1 ripe avocado, stoned, peeled and chopped into chunks
1 small ripe mango, stoned, peeled and chopped into chunks
100g spinach (fresh or frozen)
250ml milk (unsweetened almond or coconut milk)
1 tbsp unsweetened almond or peanut butter
1 tbsp honey, agave or maple syrup (optional)
For the topping use -
Chia seeds, almonds, blueberries, coconut, raspberry & kiwi.
Put the avocado, mango, spinach, milk, nut butter, frozen banana slices and honey in a blender and blitz to a thick smoothie consistency – you may have to scrape down the sides with a spoon a few times to combine properly. Divide between two bowls and arrange the toppings to your liking.
