Q: I don’t remember where, but I’ve read somewhere that avocado is good for your hair. Why is avocado good for your hair? What does the avocado do? Do you have to eat it, or put it on your hair?
Avocado is healthy for hair and body because it contains a large amount of healthy fats and oils. Any source of natural oil is necessary for conditioning and maintaining healthy, shiny hair. This means any food that is high in healthy fats or oils will be really good for you and your hair.
Many women rub the dry ends of their hair with avocado oil, coconut oil, macadamia oil etc. You can also treat your hair to an egg-yolk mask, and even include a high-fat mayonnaise to the mix.
All of these foods will leave your hair shiny and supple, as long as you don’t overdo it. Only treat your hair with very high fat/oil products or treatments when the hair is very dry or chemically damaged. If you apply something like coconut oil or avocado oil to thin, healthy hair, you’ll end up with a greasy mess.
