Fruits for hair health might not be something you ever considered when you sat down by the pool with your summer smoothie. But there’s more to that refreshing drink than just the delicious flavor! Some of your favorite fruits are actually quite beneficial when it comes to hair loss, scalp moisture and strengthening hair follicles.
When we say fruits for hair, though, we don’t necessarily mean that you should take a strawberry and smash it up into your strands. While it may smell nice—and there are certainly plenty of DIY fruit hair masks you can whip up to nourish your hair and supplement the fruits you already feed your hair through your diet—there are added benefits to an actual fruit hair product that’s formulated to help your hair.
Hair-care products often use fruit extracts and oils, which can help boost scalp moisture and tone down breakage. These ingredients can do even more, though, like protect hair from free radicals, nourish hair follicles, and even bring back shine to dull, aging hair. Plus, fruit hair products often smell good, too!
There’s a lot to love about fruits for hair health and how they can benefit your locks. Check out four of our favorite summer fruits for hair health and find out which Better Not Younger products you should reach for if you want to give fruit hair products a try.
