Before I tell you how to use avocado oil on hair, let us first see:

Is Avocado Oil Good For Hair?

In short, the answer is yes! Avocado oil is great for moisturizing dry, brittle, and damaged hair. It is so lightweight that it easily gets absorbed into your hair and scalp. It has several nutrients: vitamins A, B, D, and E, protein, amino acids, iron, copper, magnesium, and folic acid. All these nutrients are useful for nourishing your hair and hair growth.

It is a natural humectant, so it helps to increase and lock in moisture. It works as a natural SPF. It’s good for deep hair conditioning, strengthening hair, and adding luster. The bonus point is that its vitamins, amino acids, and high-fat content stimulate healthy hair growth and are good for retaining and even reinstating scalp health – so it can be used to treat dry, itchy scalp.

Massaging avocado oil into your scalp boosts circulation and allows it to penetrate deeply, feeding valuable nutrients, unblocking clogged follicles, and promoting faster hair growth.

How To Use Avocado Oil On Hair?

You don’t have to buy expensive commercial hair treatments when you can make one on your own easily at home with natural ingredients. Here are some of the most valuable avocado oil hair treatments and some simple homemade ideas that are likely far more effective than the expensive store-bought hair care products to promote your hair’s strength and shine.

# 1

Avocado Hot Oil Treatment

You will need:

(i) Avocado oil: 3-5 tablespoons (depending on the length of your hair)

(ii) Coconut oil: Extra virgin, 3-5 tablespoons (depending on the length of your hair)

(iii) Rosemary essential oil: Few drops (optional)


(i) Mix the avocado and coconut oil, blend, and heat the mixture in a saucepan on very low heat until warmed to a comfortable temperature. Add a few drops of rosemary essential oil (optional) and mix well. Though you can use other essential oils such as lavender or sandalwood, rosemary oil is generally considered useful for hair and scalp.

(ii) Massage the mixture gently onto your hair and scalp. Let the mixture sit for at least 20 minutes. Cover with a shower cap, or preferably wrap in a warm towel for better results.

Enriched Conditioner

The simplest method to use avocado oil on hair is to buy a natural, basic conditioner containing as few chemicals as possible. Now take the conditioner in your palm and add some avocado oil. Mix them together in your hands before applying the mixture. You may need to do this a couple of times in case you have longer hair.

Avocado Oil In Your Haircare Routine

If you want to apply pure avocado oil directly on the hair, apply it from the scalp to the hair ends, braiding your hair. You may leave avocado oil in your hair overnight as a deep treatment.
