Avocado Oil For Hair Growth
Aside from consuming avocados on a regular basis, you should also apply avocado oil directly to your hair and here's why! Avocado oil contains a TON of benefits that help repair the hair and encourages faster hair growth.
Avocado oil contains the following:
- Antioxidants to rid the hair of toxins, pollutants, and other environmental factors. This ensures that the hair is properly detoxified and is ready to absorb important nutrients.
- Minerals which help in the reparation of damaged strands, split ends, and hair breakage. Minerals also help to fortify weak, brittle, and thin hair.
- Fatty acids which nourish and hydrate dry hair, one of the biggest culprits of damaged and slow growing hair.
- Biotin is also found in avocado oil, which is one of the most important ingredients – it helps encourage faster hair growth as well as new, healthy growth.
- Vitamins A, B-5, and E which help make hair softer, repairs split ends, and strengthens the hair follicle.
Using Avocado Oil For Hair Growth:
- Take a small amount of avocado oil (about a quarter sized amount) and massage gently into the scalp.
- Massage the scalp gently for 3-5 minutes to encourage blood flow (this also helps with hair growth).
- Be sure to saturate entire head, focusing on the scalp and the ends.
- Cover with a light towel or a shower cap and leave on for at least 30 minutes, but we recommend leaving it on overnight.
- Rinse out, and shampoo and condition as normal.
- Repeat this 2-3 times a week for at least 1 month to encourage fast hair growth, repair damage, and strengthen hair.
