The taste or even just the aroma of chocolate triggers a cascade of feel-good chemicals into our body, according to the smart folks at Neurosciences Institute, San Diego, California, USA.
Chocolate is comforting, smells divine and tastes yummy and delicious. Yet you may regret eating too much of this diet-be-damned delicacy. But now there is a calorie-free way to give yourself - or at least your hair - the treat (ment) it describes, in the form of a topical deep conditioner using dark, rich luxurious chocolate.
Natural hair care goodies made from unrefined cocoa butter and pure cocoa powder gives your hair all the necessary wholesome nourishment needs. Unrefined cocoa is loaded with calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, vitamins A1, B1, B2, C, D, E, phosphorous, chromium and has been dubbed "Fruit of Gods". The vitamins and minerals within chocolate are essential for hair growth, skin, nails and general good health.
Chocolate contains polyphenols, which are natural anti-oxidants that guard the scalp and protect hair from damage from free radicals. Pure cocoa / cacao also has natural caffeine, providing a stimulating effect and encouraging healthy hair growth. The purer chocolate, the higher the cocoa content, the more polyphenols it contains the better it is for your hair and scalp.
Polyphenols give skin and hair extra elasticity, strengthens the capillaries which distribute oxygen-rich blood to the hair root, help prevent scarring and collagen tissue damage and also acts as an anti-inflammatory. Oh yes, chocolate is a rich concoction of vitamins, minerals and protein that smoothes and conditions your curls, making your hair, not your hips more supple. Do not you think it is high time your hair got the treatment it describes?
