Healthy Benefits Of Avocado Oil For Hair

Why Lilyam Natural Hair Oils Include Avocado Oil

Avocados have long been considered a “superfood” because they are jam-packed with nutrients. The cool thing is that those nutrients are beneficial for healthy skin and healthy hair. They contain antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, fats, and minerals that are good for skin and hair. These nutrients are one of the reasons you’ll find avocado oil in Lilyam natural hair oil products. Let’s take a deeper look at how beneficial avocado oil is for your hair.

The Role of Natural Oils on the Hair

Natural oils in general can play a huge role in keeping your hair healthy. Your scalp secretes oil naturally but if there is an imbalance in the oils or environmental factors, your hair can become dry or brittle. Vegetable oils have been used on the scalp for years. They can coat hair follicles and help prevent damage at the base of the hair. This can help prevent breakage and allow hair to grow longer.

When it comes to using oils on the hair, some are better than others.  Avocado oil, in particular, mainly has monounsaturated fats which is why it is a great choice for treating hair.

Benefits of Using Avocado Oil on Hair

Avocado oil contains tons of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to help keep your hair healthy and strong. There are many benefits for your hair and your scalp. Here are our top seven benefits of using avocado oil on your hair.

Versatility of Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is lighter than most of the other hair oils. This means it is not going to build up on your hair, weight it down, or clog the pores. It also means that avocado oil is an excellent choice for those who have medium/low density and porosity. But at the same time, it’s good for those who have high-density hair and high porosity.

Added Strength and Moisture

Avocado oil is super rich in monounsaturated fats and oleic acid. These ingredients allow it to penetrate the hair shaft and moisturize it. It doesn’t just sit on top of the hair and coat it. These fats are what are beneficial for preventing breakage by strengthening the hair shaft.

Encourage a Healthy Scalp

If you suffer from dry or sensitive skin, the monounsaturated fats in avocado oil are a great solution. The oil can quickly penetrate into the second layer of the skin, the dermis. This provides the scalp with a  deep moisturizing treatment.

Reduce Dandruff and Psoriasis

When you have a flaky scalp, it is often the result of dryness and eczema. Since avocado oil penetrates and moisturizes the skin quickly, it can help provide relief from both of these conditions. Massaging it into the scalp soothes the skin.

Provide Protection

Our hair is exposed to many environmental elements that can cause damage including sunlight, chlorine, seawater, and pollution. These can dry out the hair shafts leaving hair damaged. Applying oils including avocado oil to the hair can provide some protection from these and other environmental effects.

Avocado Oil and Hair Growth

Vitamin D is critical for generating new hair follicles. Avocado oil is one of the few foods that contain this essential vitamin. Using avocado oil on your scalp and hair will help prevent breakage and encourage new growth.

Hair Detangler

Avocado oil on the ends of the hair can be a helpful detangler. Use your fingers to coat the ends of the hair with small amounts of oil to make it easier to brush. Lilyam natural oils can be combed through the hair using a wide-toothed comb to help it begin to unknot.
