5 Potential Benefits of Adding Pumpkin to Your Hair Care Routine

There is much speculation about the use of pumpkin on your hair and if it stimulates sustainable hair growth.

In addition to potential hair growth, it’s packed with vitamins that could improve the overall look and feel of your mane as well. There’s no better season than fall to try this out as pumpkins are in their prime. Check out five potential benefits of adding pumpkin to your hair care routine below.

1. It contains phytosterols.

Say goodbye to shedding and excessive breakage. Phytosterols are found in most plants and have so many under-the-radar health benefits. They fully support quality growth by blocking hormones in your scalp (dihydrotestosterone) that can cause hair loss.

2. It’s full of minerals like potassium and zinc.

Fact: healthy hair is happy hair. Vitamins like Zinc helps your stressed out strands with collagen production. Collagen stimulates follicles for improved regrowth while potassium balances your scalp’s pH levels for strong hair with diamond-level shine.

3. It’s a great source of Omega 3 and vitamin B.

Omega 3 has anti-inflammatory properties and opens up hair follicles in a big way. Pumpkin is rich in this substance and vitamin B which contains folate. Folate is just what you need to cultivate long locks as it improves blood circulation for noticeable growth.

4. It’s the perfect DIY deep conditioning ingredient.

Pumpkin is a simple yet impeccable ingredient to add to your DIY conditioning treatment. There are so many different combinations of ingredients you can use, but it works best with honey, coconut oil or even oatmeal powder.

5. It soothes dry hair.

When jam-packed with so many vitamins, it’s impossible not to moisturize and soothe damaged hair. Antioxidants fight free radicals and heat damage while vitamin C gives you an other-worldly glow.

Now that you know what it can do for you, add THESE pumpkin products into your routine.
