Avocado Oil FAQs

How Do I Use Avocado Oil for Hair?

You can use avocado oil on its own as a hot oil treatment, as a hair mask mixed in with other moisturizing ingredients, or with other hair products.

You can check out 3 avocado oil recipes for hair at 6 Benefits of Avocado Oil for Healthy Hair.

Does Avocado Oil Go Bad?

Like all oils, avocado oil has a shelf life. The average shelf life for avocado oil is 6 to 12 months.

This means you must use up your avocado oil stash within this time. You should also engage in best practices to preserve the shelf life of any oil.

Does Avocado Oil Thicken Hair?

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.

Does Avocado Oil Make Hair Grow?

Avocado oil on its own will keep your hair moisturized. Moisturised hair means better length retention.

For hair growth, there are other oils more suitable for this such as Jamaican black castor oil and emu oil.

I covered hair growth oils extensively in How to Grow Hair Healthy & Long With Natural Oils.

Avocado Oil FAQs

Can You Use Avocado Oil on Dry Hair?

Yes, yes, and yes. Avocado oil is one of the best oils to use for dry and brittle hair as I’ve mentioned several times on the website.

Try the recipes recommended in 6 Benefits of Avocado Oil for Hair on your dry hair for a marked improvement.

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 30 – 45 minutes.

However, if you’re applying 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.

If you have any more questions about avocado oil, you can ask in the comments section and I’ll update the FAQ.

Happy Hair Growing!
