Whether it’s nourishing avocado and coconut oil, or frizz-fighting pomegranate, natural ingredients have many nutritional benefits for your hair and skin.
Together with Percy & Reed, we’ve rounded up our top natural ingredients so you can eat your way to healthier hair. Meet your favourites…
1. Nourishing avocado
Whether you enjoy velvety avocado, like we’ve done with our sweetcorn fritters here, or apply it to your hair, this green fruit (yes, it’s really a fruit), will treat your crowning glory to the love it deserves. Containing vitamins, A, B6, D, E and iron, this little wonder is high in antioxidants which keep your hair healthy for longer. Plus, fatty amino acids add a protective layer to your hair which helps retain moisture.
Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Cleanse & Nourish contains nutrient-rich avocado oil which works to boost hair health and promote growth. Its mix of natural ingredients including rose, geranium, lavender and peppermint essential oils, bring you no-lather cleansing, keeping your hair soft, glossy and revitalised. Dry, damaged hair won’t stand a chance!
2. Deep conditioning coconut
Coconut is another great addition to a healthy, balanced diet. We’ve toasted coconut flakes and sprinkled over our Jamaican veggie curry in this delicious recipe. It’s a source of essential fatty acids and helps the body absorb vitamins. And guess what. It’s great for the hair and skin, too. Coconut oil is 94% fat which can help penetrate each strand of hair and restore moisture. High in vitamin E, K, zinc and iron, it’s restoring properties can improve scalp health and hair strength, even preventing hair loss.
Percy & Reed Totally TLC Hydrating Mask contains coconut oil for deep conditioning and moisturising and is ideal for dry, dehydrated hair. It also contains gentle aloe vera and mango seed oil rich in vitamins and minerals. Plus, marshmallow extract lends a hand nourishing and strengthening stressed tresses. Our heroes.
3. Frizz-fighting pomegranate
We’ve added sweet, crunchy pomegranate jewels to this roasted squash, broccoli and za’atar chickpeas salad, served with chopped pistachios, torn mint and drizzled in a maple and tahini sauce. Besides being a delicious fruit, pomegranates are rich in vitamins C and B5 and potassium which help strengthen the hair follicles and fight pesky frizz. Pomegranates contain a large amount of punicic acid which helps transform your hair into lustrous locks. As this natural ingredient is brimming with antioxidants, vitamins and fibre, it also helps increase blood circulation in the scalp, promoting healthy hair growth.
Percy & Reed Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational No Oil Oil for Thick Hair contains frizz-busting pomegranate seed oil, which helps strengthen the cuticle by leaving behind a smoothing film that prevents frizz. Use it to tame dry, damaged, coarse or frizzy hair. Voila! Who’d have thought you could combat your hair woes just like that?
