"Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, which is extremely good for the scalp and is often added to a lot of products," says White. It also is a great moisturizer for dry, damaged strands, plus it's rich in potassium, a nutrient that is useful in promoting hair growth.
For this treatment, White says to combine two cups chopped, cooked pumpkin with a tablespoon of yogurt and puree in a blender. Add a tablespoon of honey and one of coconut oil, then mix to ensure it's smooth and well blended. Apply the mixture to damp hair, then cover hair with a plastic shower cap and wait 15 minutes. Rinse it out and style as usual.
