The ellagic acid in strawberries not only protects skin against UV rays, but it also prevents hair loss/thinning and can even delay androgenetic alopecia. The folic acid and vitamins B5 and B6 are found in strawberries as well and can also prevent hair loss. Strawberries can also add extra shine to your hair. Make a paste out of 7 or 8 mashed strawberries and mix with 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise. Apply this paste to your hair and scalp for 15-20 minutes and cover with a shower cap. This mixture also serves as a conditioner should be rinsed out with water. Use cold water for extra shine. Another option is to mix mashed strawberries and egg yolk and use that as a conditioner.
