Avocado oil is primarily for treating dry and brittle hair and skin. If you’re interested in thickening your hair, I recommend JBCO, castor oil, pumpkin oil and pecan oil.

Avocado oil on its own will keep your hair moisturised. Moisturised hair means better length retention.
For hair growth, there are other oils more suitable for this such as JBCO and emu oil.
I covered hair growth oils extensively in How to Grow Hair Healthy & Long With Natural Oils.

How Long Do You Leave Avocado Oil in Your Hair?
This depends on what kind of hair treatment you’re doing. If it’s a hot oil or deep conditioning treatment, it wouldn’t be more than 45 minutes.
However, if you’re applying as hair oil, you can leave it on until your next wash day. Rest assured, avocado oil is unlikely to damage hair.
Does Avocado Oil Need to Be Refrigerated?
As long as it’s in an airtight container and stored away from light sources, it should be fine but you can put it in the refrigerator if it makes you more comfortable.
