Ingredients for your hair (and immune system)!

We created a list of ingredients that are great for your immune system as well as your curls!

Looks like we’ll be in social isolation for a while. Now is the time to start getting crafty at home. It’s not only a great way to fill up your time, but studies show DIY projects can actually have therapeutic benefits and increase overall feelings of happiness and satisfaction. After all, DIY is how AVOCURL got started. AVOCURL Founder, Jasmine, started experimenting making deep treatments in her dorm room when her hair began to fall out.

Making your own hair products can be a fun project for the whole family and a great way to learn about the power of simple, natural ingredients from our kitchen. Besides, every curly needs a good deep treatment from time to time! We’re over here wondering, how many deep treatments is too many?!

It's bigger than hair.

Healthy hair care and staying healthy is not just about what you put on your hair or how many times you wash your hands. It is also about taking care of ourselves from the inside out - eating fresh healthy fruits and vegetables, drinking water, getting enough rest, and keeping our stress levels low. Please continue to wash hands, disinfect, and stay inside so we can all keep each other safe. It is so important that we also keep our immune systems strong.
