Did you know Grape fruit is quite different from Grapes?and not only are they larger in size, they do a fantastic job to our hair and body also…. Let’s take a look at what they do along side Apricots, shall we?
Grape Fruit is one of the fruits I love; the only thing I knew about them up until a few days ago was it helped in weight loss and contained Vitamin C which was good for the body.
This delicious, pinkish (on the inside),orange look alike fruit is rich in Vitamin C, Fiber, Antioxidants, Calcium and Potassium and adds loads of benefits to your hair and body. Eating/drinking it’s natural juice can help lower cholesterol, increase your body immunity system, rebuild cells, fight cancer, aid digestion and even treat depression and reduce tension!
This fruit promotes healthy growing hair while preventing hair loss. It helps fight dandruff, dry and flaky scalp and also helps to keep you hair follicles healthy because it helps strip off chemicals or build ups which could have stuck over time in your hair from shampoos/Products including those ones that contain Sulfate. This fruit (juice)can be massage into hair and also adds shine to your hair if you add it to your shampoo- how amazing!
