This is the third post in a series about natural oils and their benefits for your hair. Read about castor oil here and sesame seed oil here. And today I’ll do one about avocado oil (and yes, we do have cold pressed avocado oil for sale so hit us up in the comments, call/text/whatsapp us on 0725466132 or email us on Afroliciouske@gmail.com. Go on😋😋)
Avocado oil is extracted from the pulp/flesh of the avocado fruit. You can do it yourself. Wikihow has a link where you can make one with coconut cream (definite plus for your hair 🙂 and oilypedia has a nice one too. You can even use spoilt avocados so they don’t go to waste. Try it and share your results with us!
The best results for your hair will be accomplished if you use cold pressed avocado oil. For an oil to be considered cold pressed, the extraction process temperature must not exceed 49°. Here’s a blog with how you can cold press avocado oil at home.
So what are the benefits of avocado oil for your hair?
-It contains a very high level of monounsaturated fatty acids, phytosterols (higher than extra virgin olive oil) to moisturize, nourish and strengthen your hair strands.
-It contains Vit E and K which promote hair growth and reduce split ends when massaged into your hair. It is a light oil and is easily absorbed by your scalp
-It’s a great carrier oil for your essential oils eg rosemary and thyme so if you like having some scented essential oil in your spritzer, this is your go to oil.
-It contains antioxidants eg Vitamin E that protect your hair from harmful UV rays, and stimulate hair growth.
You can use avocado oil for a pre poo, as a sealant, to improve the slip of your conditioner, to massage into your scalp or to improve the shine of your hair.
