Tis the season! Aside from our amazing hairstylists - this season we are thankful for: Pumpkin. That's right! Turns out this tasty treat has serious benefits for hair and skin.
So it's the day after Thanksgiving and you've had a small love affair with pumpkin for the past few months: Pumpkin Spice lattes at Starbucks, pumpkin patch visits, scooping the goop out of a freshly carved 'kin - post visit, roasting the seeds for a snack, and engorging yourself with all the pumpkin pie you can handle at Thanksgiving dinner. The thought of it might make you cringe at this point - but I'm here to tell you not to smash your pumpkin just yet!
Pumpkin enzymes contain omega acids, which make it a powerful antioxidant that aids in hydrating, soothing, and regenerating the skin and hair. With winter rolling in, it would be wise to keep in your beauty arsenal with those healing qualities!
