I Ate 2 Avocados a Day to See If It Would Improve My Hair

Hallie Gould

Over the last few months (more like a full 12, if I'm being honest), I've had a slightly contentious relationship with my hair. Full, chest-length curls used to sprout from my head and grow without much trouble. Now, instead, those tendrils have been replaced with thin, damaged, and uneven strands—ready to break off at a moment's notice. I've swapped out every hair product, asked experts, and taken supplements, all in the off chance my hair might grow back into my good graces (only to be sorely disappointed a year later).

Desperate for answers and at the end of my fraying rope, I've frantically bombarded our wellness editor, Victoria, for her advice. Every time I see her, her hair is longer, stronger-looking, and more beautiful than before. I would admit to unadulterated jealousy if it didn't go against all my "women supporting women" type morals. Her advice? Avocados. Yes, really.
