AVOCADO

HAIR BENEFITS:  Avocado contains healthy fats which help nourish and strengthen hair.  It restores the hair with healthy fats and moisture making the hair more resistant to breakage or damage.  Avocado oil leaves the hair feeling soft and looking shiny.

SKIN BENEFITS:  Avocado has an abundance of vitamin E and is abundant in chlorophyll (the compound responsible for its green color).  These antioxidants benefit the skin by protecting it against environmental factors that cause aging and damage to the skin.  Furthermore, they promote the production of collagen, which is a natural protein that helps improve the elasticity of the skin, reducing fine lines, and making the skin look more supple, and youthful. 

ALOE VERA JUICE

HAIR BENEFITS: Aloe vera juice moisturizes natural hair and supports strengthening and repairing hair strands.  For oil hair, the enzymes in aloe vera juice can break down fats and remove extra oil (sebum) on your scalp.  For scalp conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis, it can significantly reduce itchiness. The aloe plant also contains aloenin, a compound that research has shown is a prime factor in preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth.  Aloe vera can also be used to cleanse the hair and scalp and serves as a great a scalp massager. 

SKIN BENEFITS: Aloe vera juice is a great source of vitamin A and C, enzymes, antioxidants and is highly anti-inflammatory.  All of these nutrients provide a plethora of benefits to our skin.  Vitamin C helps the skin regenerate naturally by stimulating collagen production.  Vitamin A reduces hyperpigmentation and other damages caused by the sun.  Enzymes help break down dead skin that have been stuck together so they can be gently washed away.  Antioxidants help the skin repair itself.  Inflammation hinders the skin repair process and antioxidants reduce inflammation which allow the skin to freely repair itself and self-correct visible damage.
