All Natural Hair Care
Cocoa is rich in magnesium; a mineral that helps to combat hair loss. It increases blood circulation to the scalp, which leads to better hair growth and gorgeous tresses. It is known to give the hair sheen and with all the anti-inflammatory properties, it can minimize the chances of scalp infections.
Dark chocolate is full of minerals that aid in cell renewal like iron, copper and zinc. Cocoa also contains beneficial nutrients for your hair such as protein, riboflavin, vitamin A and thiamine. Put an equal amount of chocolate with your other hair butters for a chocolaty smell and for added nutrition.
The important focus in the application of your chocolate needs to be on the scalp. With the aid of a little heat, which opens the pores, the nutrients from chocolate will be absorbed into your scalp, giving hair the rejuvenating help it needs to be healthy. Cocoa also contains one of the highest levels of antioxidants than many other sources on Earth, which is also really great for your skin.
