Keep Your Hair Silky Smooth With These 5 Superfoods, Manhattan, New York

Haircuts make your tresses look and feel healthy — but how do you make those results last? According to the stylists at NYC’s Bloom Beauty Lounge, you need to moisturize. Try using these five foods to create your own deep conditioning mask.

5 Foods That Also Moisturize Hair

1. Avocado

This superfood is not only full of vitamins like A, D, E, and B6, but it also contains lots of protein and healthy fat. When applied to the scalp, the avocado penetrates the cuticle and nourishes the hair, making it softer and more manageable. These nutrients also promote hair growth.

2. Egg Yolks

Eggs, like avocados, are rich in fats and proteins. If your tresses feel dry, try applying a half cup of egg yolks to clean, damp hair. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse with cool water. Repeat the mask every two weeks, and your hair will feel as soft as it did after your last haircut.

3. Mayonnaise

This condiment contains egg yolks, vinegar, and oil — three ingredients known for their moisturizing effects. When applied to the hair, mayonnaise also seals the cuticle, locking in nutrients. To use, apply one cup of mayonnaise to dry hair once a week. Let it sit for 20 minutes and then rinse. Using a gentle shampoo and other organic hair products after will also maintain softness post-haircut.

4. Coconut Oil

haircutFrom cooking to insect repellent, coconut oil has many uses, and moisturizing is among them. The product contains fatty acids that penetrate the hair shaft, repairing split ends and giving your locks a healthy glow. For those with curly hairstyles, coconut oil also defines curls and tames frizz. For best results, apply two tablespoons of melted coconut oil to the hair and leave for at least 30 minutes. Cleanse, condition and revel in the smoothness.

5. Honey

Honey works wonders on hair because it is a known humectant, meaning it reduces moisture loss. Don’t worry about the sticky residue, though; it washes out easily with warm water. For added moisture, mix a tablespoon of honey with one of the other ingredients on this list.

Moisture makes your hair softer, stronger, and healthier. For more deep conditioning tricks, call Bloom Beauty Lounge at (212) 255-9355.
