Explore the world and learn secrets for beautiful hair! This week, Madison Reed visits Colombia to bring you hair care secrets, fashion-forward trends, and fascinating facts. Bordered by both the Caribbean and the Pacific, and home to the Andes and the Amazon rainforest, Colombia boasts more than 1900 bird species. And with 48 million inhabitants, Colombia has the third-largest population in Latin America, after Mexico and Brazil. It is also home to some seriously beautiful hair. (And it's the birthplace of Sofia Vergara!)

Beauty Tip: Avocado

As one of the most widely-known beauty foods in the world, the avocado is used by Colombian women everywhere. When eaten, it can promote glowing skin, strong nails and and shiny hair. Some women mash up the avocado and use it as a mask to re-hydrate the ends of their hair. The mask can also used on the face for a moisture boost, like a naturally creamy lotion. When using it on either face or hair, it should be washed off after 15 minutes.

Hairstyle: Silky Smooth

A silky smooth hairstyle is popular throughout Colombia. Shine serums, moisturizing hair treatments, and high-quality hot tools are just some of the ways Colombian women keep their hair healthy, shiny and thick.  

Fun Facts:

  • Colombia is the only South American country with Atlantic and Pacific coastlines (with 300 beaches)!
  • Colombia doesn’t have seasons because it’s near the equator. That means sunshine all year long.
  • While the official language is Spanish, there are nearly 64 Native tongues still in use.
