Avocado Oil for Hair

Listen to the article


After looking in the mirror, you notice your hair isn’t looking like its healthy, shiny self. But after looking at your calendar, you know you just don’t have the time to remedy it. At Herbal Essences, we’re here to offer simple solutions with simple ingredients, because who doesn't need a simplified routine these days? One of the quickest ways to combat those starving strands is by calling on our favorite green fruit: avocado. So, forget the toast – the best thing to pair with avocado is your hair.

Why Use Avocado Oil for Hair

We know avocados are a healthy, delicious snack when it comes to guacamole or avocado toast. When it comes to hair, we recommend avocado oil. Applying avocado oil to your hair 2-3 times per week will help maintain your hair’s natural moisture, as well as build up strength from heated styling tools and abrasive weather conditions. This power-packed oil can also help restore lost moisture to starving strands when left on longer.

How to Use Avocado Oil for Hair

There are plenty of quick and easy ways to help your hair benefit from avocado’s surplus of nutrients – no plate needed. Avocado oil can easily be applied to the ends of your hair by taking just a few drops and working it through the strands with either your fingers or a comb. Do this on dry hair prior to showering or after styling for that sleek, healthy look.

No time to add an extra step into your haircare routine? We get it. Luckily, there are everyday products, like shampoo and conditioner, that already include avocado oil in them. Simply look for avocado oil in the list of ingredients the next time you need to replenish your supply. And in case you need a suggestion, Herbal Essences’ Avocado & Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner just won the 2022 Allure Best of Beauty Award.

If your hair is in need of deeper repair, avocado oil is still a great solution. For a deeper repair, you can create a hair mask by combining avocado oil and coconut oil, or even warm honey. Apply the mask to damp or dry hair, being sure to massage it thoroughly and evenly into your strands and scalp. You can leave the mask on for 30 minutes, or even overnight, wrapped in a towel. Whichever your method, wash the mixture out with shampoo and condition as usual.

With avocado oil you can get those split ends out of your hair and out of your mind – without sacrificing your time. And as a natural ingredient, you can shine your brightest without the added stress of chemicals, parabens or dyes. Because when the ingredients are real, you feel it.
