One of the cosmetic benefits of papaya is they can cure a dry scalp and get rid of dandruff. In fact, many shampoo companies use some sort of papaya extract in their recipes because of how beneficial it is to human hair. Papayas are full of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that work together as a natural conditioner, all while cleansing the hair of chemicals and dirt. If you go to any beauty supply store, chances are that you’ll find hair masks of all kinds that include papaya; but, fortunately, it’s actually quite easy to make your own, right at home. If you have dry damaged hair, try mixing the meat from one fully ripe papaya, together, with coconut oil and olive oil, to form a rich and thick paste; apply this to your hair for 30 minutes, and concentrate on massaging the oils into the scalp for the very best results.
