These Two Fruits Hold the Key to Thicker Hair: juice for hair growth!
Fresh fruit is an irreplaceable component of any healthy, well-balanced diet. But here’s something you might not have been told: You should be “feeding” fruit to your hair, too!
You’ve heard it from your parents, your doctors, your teachers...even from your kids’ favorite TV shows!
And there’s a reason you’ve gotten this advice from so many caring, concerned folks, for so many years:
Because getting your regular daily servings of fresh fruit is simply one of the best things you can do for your health, fitness, and well-being!
GOOD FOR YOU ALL OVER
Current health and medical authorities have different thoughts on just how much fruit per day is recommended for optimum benefits. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s most recent “Food Pyramid,” you should enjoy at least two servings of fresh whole fruit every day.
And the American Heart Association actually suggests four to five servings for the average adult!1
“At least two daily servings of fresh fruit are recommended for the best possible health and wellness support.”
But no matter the number of servings, the experts agree:
- Fresh fruit is an irreplaceable component of any healthy, well-balanced diet.
- Of course, you probably knew this already. After all, like we said...you’ve been hearing it for years.
- But here’s something you might not have been told:
- You should be “feeding” fruit to your hair, too!
THE FINEST FIX FOR FINE HAIR
The same nutrients that make fruit so integral to a fit, well-functioning body can also improve the structure, strength, and appearance of your hair in a number of ways. And today, we’d like to focus on two fruits that come together to form a powerful defense against a frequent and frustrating dilemma:
That’s right. Whether you were born with naturally thinner strands...or your fine hair is the result of a health condition or environmental factors when you’ve got light, wispy hair, it brings its own unique, irritating care and styling challenges.
Fine hair is fragile, much more prone to split ends and breakage than thicker strands. An unusually dry or windy day can leave your look riddled with flyaway hairs, or tousled beyond redemption.
And without the reliable volume of a fuller head of hair, many popular styles become a serious struggle for you to achieve.
“When you’ve got fine hair, it pays to choose the right curling wand for your sensitive strands!”
For these and many other reasons, fine hair can sometimes feel like a real obstacle to achieving your ideal appearance. Fortunately, Mother Nature has a cheap, convenient way to give your locks a shot of extra volume.
And the duo of dynamic ingredients that give this treatment its kick are waiting for you right in the produce aisle!
APPLES TO ORANGES
This amazingly simple, fresh-scented volume-boosting treatment “feeds” your follicles their recommended dose of two fruit servings for optimum health.
First, this hair mask includes fresh-squeezed orange juice.
Oranges, of course, are a knockout source of vitamin C an antioxidant that improves your body’s absorption of iron, a crucial promoter of thick, sturdy hair growth.
“The strong antioxidants found in orange juice help your body harness the nutrients it needs to keep your hair thicker and more lustrous!” Vitamin C also dramatically enhances your body’s natural production of collagen, critical for fortifying the structure of full, lush hair strands.3
This homemade hair mask also includes a puree made from apples. Turns out these iconic fruits don’t just keep the doctor away they also keep your hair sturdy and growing strong!
That’s because the skin of green apples contains a natural polyphenol called procyanidin B-2. And the National Institute of Health has cited numerous clinical studies that indicate, not only does this compound thicken the diameter of your hair strands it both stimulates and soothes the scalp, to promote increased production of new, fresh, and fuller hair!4
That’s why we’ve decided to combine these two hair-thickening fruits into one super-simple treatment to give your tresses the sweetest-smelling styling advantage you’ve ever enjoyed!
ORANGE-APPLE PUREE THICKENING MASK
To make and apply this quick and easy hair treatment…
- Using a food processor or blender, pulp one green apple, with the skin still on, into a fine puree.
- Combine ¼ cup of the apple puree with two tablespoons of juice from a fresh orange. Be sure to remove any orange seeds!
- Mix the apple puree and orange juice until well-blended.
- Smooth the apple-orange mixture liberally onto your scalp.
- Spread the mixture down your hair to the tips.
- Let the mixture set for 30 minutes.
- Then, when you’re ready, thoroughly rinse the mixture from your hair with cold water.

“This basic treatment will give your hair all the stimulating enrichment found in green apple skins!”
