Papaya for Healthy HairPapaya is rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes that help nourish hair, remove unwanted residues, and add shine and softness. Here’s how to get healthy hair with a raw papaya hair treatment.

  1. Puree half a papaya with some olive oil (amount of oil depends on how dry your hair is) and a teaspoon of honey.
  2. Apply to damp hair and leave on as long as you like.
  3. Rinse, then shampoo out excess oil if necessary.

    Papain, a proteolytic enzyme (a enzyme that breaks down protein), is found in papaya. It's used as a chemical exfoliatant for skin. It works by breaking down dead skin. With that said, I'm not sure if that is the best thing to use as a natural hair conditioner…#just saying

    I just bought a papaya the other day. It looked fine on the outside, but as I cut it open, the most wretched nasty smell came out. I just threw the whole thing out. How can you tell if a papaya is good from the outside?
