THE BENEFITS OF AVOCADO OIL FOR HAIR

If you have curls or coils, oils are probably a non-negotiable part of your hair care routine. Here, we’re going to talk all about one specific oil – avocado – and the benefits for your hair. (Spoiler: it’s hydration.) Let’s get started.

Avocado oil benefits for hair

Moisture. Avocado oil is rich in fatty acids, which dry strands love.

Breakage. Dry hair is more likely to break. Hydrated hair is stronger.

Antioxidants. Avocado oil is full of antioxidants, which are great for your hair.

How to use avocado oil in hair

There are many ways to incorporate avocado oil into your hair routine. You can use it as a pre-wash by massaging a few tablespoons into your scalp, leaving it for 5 minutes, and then shampooing and conditioning as normal. You can also make it the last step of your styling routine by rubbing a small amount between your palms and smoothing it over your mid-shaft through ends.

Or – and this is our preferred method – you can use hair products that already incorporate avocado oil like our Aussie Miracle Moist Collection Doing this allows the avocado oil to work with the other ingredients to give you more benefits, and won’t leave a lingering avocado oil scent in your strands.

So is avocado oil good for hair?

Like all hair care related questions, this depends on your unique hair. If you have very fine strands, avocado oil may weigh it down or make it look greasy instead of glossy. However, if you have thick strands, the answer is a resounding yes. Avocado oil can do wonders for thick curls and coils, and make it look shiny, less frizzy, and hydrated. What’s not to love?
