Avocado oil is making waves as one of the healthiest high-heat cooking oils in India. The best part about this oil is that it is the first truly “multipurpose” oil of its kind. Apart from being a cooking oil that gladly embraces high-heat cooking, avocado oil can be used for grilling, broiling, frying, stir-frying, baking, and even cosmetic use. Rakshak Kumar, Marketing Director at Avomexicano shares insights on how avocado oil is best for hair.
This oil type is one of the healthiest in the market because it is mainly made up of unsaturated fats (monounsaturated & polyunsaturated). Unsaturated fats support HDL (good cholesterol) levels and take out LDL (bad cholesterol) caused by saturated fats. Ingesting avocado oil can help improve heart health, boost metabolism, reduce the effects of arthritis and inflammation, assist in weight loss, and repair damaged hair and promote hair growth. Since most oils have a thicker, heavier consistency, they cannot be absorbed into the body through the skin. Avocado oil is packed with antioxidants, monounsaturated fats, oleic acid, and Omega 3 that can help moisturize your hair and scalp. Moisturizing is the first step in ensuring your hair is getting the nutrients it deserves.
Avocado oil provides moisture and strength to hair. It also improves scalp health and protects your hair from UV radiation and promotes hair growth. Most other oils are heavier than avocado oil. As a result, you can use avocado oil on your scalp and all over your hair without being concerned about buildup, weighing your hair down, or clogging your pores. This also makes avocado oil a fantastic choice for people with hair that is medium to low in porosity and medium to low in density, while still being a fantastic choice for hair that is high in porosity or high in density. Because of monounsaturated fats, avocado oil is a fantastic option for anyone with dry or sensitive skin. The second layer of skin can quickly penetrate avocado oil, giving the scalp a deep moisturising treatment, which also helps with a flaky scalp. Avocado oil is rich in vitamin D, which generates the growth of new hair follicles.
Ways to use avocado oil in your hair-care regimen

2. To retain moisture and avoid breakage, twist avocado oil through the ends of your hair.
3. Use avocado oil as a detangling agent on tangles or all over your hair. It can be used as a conditioner substitute and has excellent slide.
