Common Name: Avocado
Scientific Name: Persea Gratissima
Pronunciation: “per-see-uh grah-tee-see-muh”
Avocados are powerhouses of nutrition and vitamins that offer amazing benefits when ingested, and applied topically like in our hair products. Full of protein, avocados are considered a “super food” because they contain so many beneficial compounds. Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and tons of fatty acids to help build up the strength of your hair shaft and create overall healthier hair!
Avocado is one of our favorite ingredients for hair products. In fact we have an entire collection of hair products dedicated to it! Persea Gratissima grow on trees in warm and humid climates. They sprout from the branches as flowers, and then ripen into our beloved avocados. Because of this growth cycle, avocados are technically considered a type of berry.
Once they are harvested and cleaned, avocados can be sent to grocery stores around the world to use in smoothies, sandwiches and a host of other delicious foods! For use in NaturAll hair products they are either dried and milled into a powder to be added to our non-frozen products, pressed to extract avocado oil, or they are pulverized and packaged raw to create amazingly effective formulas like our Ice Cream Treatment Deep Conditioners!
If you’re looking for products that are freshly made, and pack a serious nutritional punch, we recommend our Avocado Hydration Line with products that all feature the Persea Gratissima as a main ingredient.
