Reasons Why You Should Switch to Avocados for Your Hair:
1. High Nutrient Content
Vitamin A, D, E, amino acids, magnesium, folic acid, iron, and copper are the main contents of an avocado. Dry hair usually falls a victim to dehydration.

2. Hair Growth
Avocado guarantees hair growth. It strengthens the hair cuticles, establishes an unbreakable bond between your hair strands and scalp. Gives the extra love that it needs. Proteins, vitamins, and minerals in avocado alter the damage in your hair and replace it with smooth and shiny hair.
3. Shoos off Dandruff
Has dandruff become a permanent resident of your scalp? We know it’s hard to get rid of this super obnoxious flaky fungus. Avocado’s antioxidant property is the key. The natural oils of avocado are to be thanked for this.
4. Brings Back the Bounce
Miss how as a child you had bouncy soft shiny hair? Getting your hair trimmed once in a while won’t hurt. Post-haircut, get into a serious mission of protecting your hair from further split ends and damage and treat it like a new beginning, use avocado for further assistance. Avocado aids in eliminating the brittles and rough split ends. Use avocado for a trip back to your childhood and get soft and bouncy hair all over again.
