It isn't just for the bedroom or kitchen, ladies!
The highly anticipated film Girl’s Trip opened this past weekend and if box office numbers are any indication, it’s a bonafide hit. We laughed, cried, cheered, fawned over Kofi Siriboe…and laughed some more. In short: Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett-Smith and the scene-stealing Tiffany Haddish have officially taken “squad goals” to new heights.
There were plenty of hilarious moments throughout the New Orleans-set romp, but a certain grapefruit experiment continues to make the most headlines. No spoilers here, but let’s just say that its benefits expand beyond the bedroom.
As it turns out, the citrus fruit is chock full of vitamin C and antioxidants that help to stimulate the production of collagen, a natural protein that promotes smoother, elastic skin. Its many perks also extend to the hair, as those same ingredients also strengthen weak hair follicles. And since grapefruit is also comprised of 92% water, it also boosts blood circulation on the scalp and throughout the entire body. Need we say more?
