Veggie of the Season: Pumpkin + 3 DIY Beauty Recipes

Autumn is slowly but surely making its appearance and that means the long-awaited pumpkin season is almost on our doorstep. This culinary highlight is filled with precious ingredients that are great for our health and beauty.

Pumpkins are rich in alpha and beta-carotene that benefit the eyes and skin, as well as vitamin C and zinc that have a positive effect on the immune system. The diversity of vital substances found in pumpkin is what makes it a true treasure for our health.

While the ingredients found in pumpkin can maintain our inner health, it also contributes to our outer appearance - which was an unknown fact until recently. Thus, this popular autumn veggie was added to our Repair & Care Shampoo in its fermented form to ensure a healthy scalp and beautifully strong hair.

For those who would like to step up their hair care game this autumn we have a few easy DIY pumpkin beauty tricks to share down below:

Pumpkin Hair Mask

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (use more depending on the length of your hair)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

Mix the pumpkin puree and coconut oil. Apply to wet hair and rinse after 10 minutes. Follow with a shampoo.
