Like the fruit, the seed is composed of properties and beneficial fatty acids. For this reason, today we will reveal how to prepare a homemade tonic with this ingredient to prevent hair loss.
Avocado is one of the most used ingredients in homemade hair care masks, thanks to fatty acids that are responsible for nourishing the hair. However, the seed inside can be even more effective at improving the appearance of hair. In fact, it is related to the prevention of hair loss, due to the concentration of properties and oils found in it. Learn how to use the avocado seed to prepare a homemade tonic with which you can take care of your hair.
The avocado seed is the core of the fruit and is made up of a series of beneficial properties for the body. In fact, it has been included both in skin care products, thanks to its natural regenerating effect, and in natural tricks to promote weight loss.
As for hair care, the avocado seed became popular some time ago for the anti-dandruff effect it had on the scalp. Dr. Myriam Belmar, an endocrinologist at the Nisa Pardo de Aravaca Hospital in Madrid, assured that “an avocado seed mask can remove flaky particles”, but only in the case of dry and non-greasy scalps, since it could worsen the situation.
Other benefits of using avocado seed in the hair is the hydration and nutrition that it provides to the area, as well as its function to hide gray hair. However, this time we will focus on one of the most striking advantages of this natural ingredient and that is its performance in preventing hair loss. Learn how to use it!
How to prepare homemade tonic with avocado seed?
Beauty influencer and youtuber Wendy Natali revealed how she included the avocado seed in her own hair care routine. In addition, to improve the effects, she confessed that she used to accompany this treatment with potato skins. Normally we tend to discard these types of ingredients, but after knowing this treatment you will think twice before throwing them away.
To start with the preparation you will need the seeds of two avocados, regardless of whether they are fresh or dried. Cut them into small pieces and place them in a bowl. To have the second ingredient ready, wash two potatoes and remove the peel or skin from both. Thanks to this treatment you will also know that you can cook for lunch!
Add both ingredients into a hot pot, move them with the help of a spoon so that they absorb the temperature and then add two cups of water. Let it boil for 15 minutes and remove from the kitchen to let cool. Strain the liquid and pour it into a glass container to store it in the fridge.
After washing your hair with your usual routine and making sure it’s completely clean, you can start applying the toner. Detangle your hair very carefully and remove excess water before doing so. Pour the avocado seed and potato peel tonic into a spray bottle to make it easy for you.
Apply the homemade treatment all over your hair, from the roots to the ends, and let it dry on it. You can use a dryer on medium heat or leave it outdoors. Don’t take it back!
Caveat! Girls who have oily scalp cannot make use of avocado seed and potato peel toner as it can worsen sebum production. If you want to see better results, apply it every time you wash your hair.
