Avocados are packed with all the nutrients and vitamins your hair needs to grow healthy and strong. Avocado supports in both ways. Whether you consume it as a fruit or put it externally in the form of avocado oil or avocado hair mask. You will get maximum benefits out of that.
Avocado oil is extracted from the pulp of this fruit. Sometimes this oil is also used for cooking. So let’s find out what are all its benefits and how it is amazing for your hair.
Fresh avocados are extremely rich in nutrients and vitamins. Vitamins B and C are lost in the extraction process because they are water-soluble, so these vitamins can only be found in fresh avocado. However, all the other vitamins and nutrients are retained, as long as you use cold-pressed virgin avocado oil. This means avocado oil is a great source of vitamins A, D, and E, in addition to potassium and lecithin.
Benefits of Avocado Oil For Hair
Avocado oil is lighter than most other oils. This means you can apply avocado oil to your scalp and throughout your hair without worrying about the build-up, weighing down your hair, or clogging your pores. This also makes avocado oil a great option for people with medium/low porosity and medium/low-density hair, while still being a great option for high porosity or high-density hair.
Moisture and strength
Avocado oil is extremely rich in oleic acid and monounsaturated fats, making it one of few unique oils that can actually penetrate the hair shaft and moisturize it, rather than sitting on top and coating your hair. These fats also strengthen the hair and thus help prevent hair breakage.
These monounsaturated fats also make avocado oil a great solution for individuals with dry or sensitive skin. Avocado oil is able to penetrate quickly to the second layer of the skin (the dermis), providing a deep moisturizing treatment to the scalp.
Dandruff and Psoriasis.
A flaky scalp is often due to dryness or psoriasis. Because of avocado oil’s ability to quickly penetrate and moisturize the skin, it can relieve both conditions. Massage into the scalp to soothe the skin.
Avocado oil contains Vitamin E, which can heal the damage caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays. This oil also helps with other hair damage.
Avocado oil contains vitamin D, which is a crucial nutrient for the generation of new hair follicles. Use avocado oil on your scalp and as well as on hair shaft to maintain and encourage hair growth!
