Benefits of avocado oil for hair

I’ve already had a chance to depict how valuable are avocado (fruit & oil) properties. In a nutshell, it is rich in fibers, vitamins A, B, C, and minerals, like zink, iron, copper, magnesium, potassium, folic acid.

It is full of antioxidants and reduces the oxidizing of the body.

Now I will touch this topic from “benefits for hair” perspective.

The reasons for having hair issues could be versatile. It might be your diet, the water you use, the atmosphere conditions, your genetics, or the shampoo and cosmetics you use!

1. Did you know; with avocado oil, you can improve your hair growth? It is rich in fatty acids, (like oleic acid) which play an essential role in that direction.

2. Due to its hydration power, avocado oil can deeply penetrate the strands and moisturize the hair.

3. You can easily comb your hair if treated with avocado oil. For the purpose, it could be mixed with almond oil in 1:1 ratio.

4. Avocado oil is an enemy of dandruff, itchy scalp, and hair loss. Here vitamin E and B are the ones that help a lot! Vitamin B keeps the strands growing, and vitamin E improves the damaged hair.Benefits of avocado oil for hair

5. Massaging the scalp with avocado oil brings more blood to the hair follicles, thus nourishing them and keeping the hair shiny and healthy.

Even if you don’t have the time to make your own mask, you could add avocado oil to your natural cosmetic product, and apply on your hair.

Now you know what a treasure you have! Let’s move to the next step.

    Very interesting. Never thought of putting avocado on my hair. But it sounds like a very natural way to beautify & strengthen mid to long hair. I’m passing this along to my daughters-in-law as they both have very long hair.

    Hello Valeria,

    The avocado really seems to be a magical fruit. Delicious and healthy to eat, excellent for the skin and by having read this blog I have learned that it also makes beautiful hair.

    How amazing that avocado improves the hair growth and can repair hair damages. That sounds perfect for me, having long hair makes the ends split easily. But I wonder, isn’t it difficult to wash away the oil? I don’t like the feeling of fatty hair. I love though, having shiny and healthy hair.

      Valeria
