When it comes to avocados, here are a few details you might want to note. Avocados from Mexico are ‘Hass’ avocados. The ‘Hass’ avocado is the most common, and pretty much the only ones I can find and buy here in Arizona. The flesh has a nutty, rich flavor with 19% oil that is not only good for your body, but great for your hair! Grown in the fertile orchard land in the state of Michoacán, near the Pacific Coast, Hass Avocados from Mexico offer higher oil content than other varieties, giving the fruit a uniquely smooth and creamy taste. Perfect for the hair mask or your favorite guacamole recipe.
Let the power of the ‘Hass’ avocado save your dry, damaged hair. As previously stated, it is a favorite deep conditioning masks and you will quickly see why! Gorgeous hair is definitely in your future.
