What Are The Benefits Of Pumpkin Puree?


Pumpkin is a good source of Vitamin A, which is excellent for the scalp. And when applied directly, you get the natural goodness right from the source. Pumpkin puree, like bananas and avocados, is a rich source of potassium – a mineral that helps promote new hair growth. Pumpkins are also beneficial in hydrating dry or damaged hair. So keep whipping up these tried and tested DIYs that will leave your hair soft and supple if you want to reap the benefits of the squash.

These DIY Recipes With Pumpkin Puree Will Transform Your Hair Care Routine

Pumpkin hair masks work great for all hair types, but they are particularly beneficial for dry or damaged hair. If you’re concerned about over-moisturising your hair, add around 1/8 cup of apple cider vinegar to the concoction.

This homemade hair mask’s quantities will vary depending on the length and density of your hair; if you have exceptionally long or dense hair, you may wish to increase these amounts. Simply stick to the same general proportions.

For The Locks Of Your Dreams

You’ll Need:

  • 1/4 cup cooked pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons cold-pressed coconut oil as it is one of the few oils that truly soaks into your hair
  • 2 tablespoons honey because it is a natural humectant, which means that it attracts water or moisture to your hair.


Step1: In a bowl, add cooked pumpkin puree, honey and coconut oil and mix these three together until fully incorporated and smooth.

Step 2: Damp your hair and apply the mixture on your cleansed, detangled hair.

Step 3: Steam your hair and let it penetrate deeper into the hair fibre for maximum hydration.

Step 4: Allow 15 minutes for the mixture to settle on your hair under a shower cap. Rinse thoroughly with cool water and style as desired.

Your mane will shine with vigour if you try out this DIY hair mask right now.
