What is vitamin E known for?
Vitamin E is best known for its antioxidant properties that help reduce and prevent free radicals and protect the body’s cells. Although you can find it in the supplement aisle, many companies add vitamin E to their beauty products. And for good reason!
Vitamin E has been used in dermatology for decades to help protect the skin against aging, inflammation, and sun damage.
Recently, vitamin E has been hailed as a perfect cure for dull and damaged hair, bringing back life, and shine to your locks.
A hair mask is used to soothe or treat the scalp. While your hair can be hydrated, you can't really make a lot of difference by using a mask only on the lengths. Instead, focus the mask on your scalp where it can be absorbed.
To make an easy mask rich in vitamin E at home, combine the following ingredients in a blender:
- 1 avocado, mashed
- 1 banana, mashed
- 1 tbsp. avocado oil
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 tbsp. honey
Mix all the ingredients and apply the mask to your scalp with your fingers. Use a towel to wrap around your hair.
Let it sit for 20 minutes to an hour
Wash it off with warm water and a gentle shampoo.
