Avocado Butter

Avocado oil is an edible oil pressed from the fruit of avocadoes (persea americana). It’s one of my favs.

Benefits of Avocado Butter to Hair:

All butters that can be used for hair have more or less the same benefits. They:
Nourish hair and the scalp with vitamins and minerals thereby helping to keep both healthier for longer. This nourishing feature makes oil great for treating dry, damaged and frizzy hair in hot oil treatments and for massaging the scalp.
Have moisture sealing properties thereby keeping hair softer for longer. However, all liquid oils (except coconut oil (which is actually solid anyway) and jojoba (which is actually a wax and not an oil)) can seal hair better than butters because they have a higher proportion of polyunsaturated fats – the type that cannot penetrate the hair cuticle.
Penetrate the hair cuticle to fortify hair from the inside; they do this better than oils because they have a higher amount of saturated fats and monounsaturated fats.
Help to boost hair’s shine but not as well as liquid oils.

What Is Avocado Butter? What Are Its Benefits To Natural Hair?

Avocado oil is an edible oil pressed from the fruit of avocadoes (persea americana). It’s one of my favs.

Benefits of Avocado Butter to Hair:

All butters that can be used for hair have more or less the same benefits. They:

  • Nourish hair and the scalp with vitamins and minerals thereby helping to keep both healthier for longer. This nourishing feature makes oil great for treating dry, damaged and frizzy hair in hot oil treatments and for massaging the scalp.
  • Have moisture sealing properties thereby keeping hair softer for longer. However, all liquid oils (except coconut oil (which is actually solid anyway) and jojoba (which is actually a wax and not an oil)) can seal hair better than butters because they have a higher proportion of polyunsaturated fats – the type that cannot penetrate the hair cuticle.

  • Help to boost hair’s shine but not as well as liquid oils.

Different butters perform each of these functions to a different degree.

Avocado oil is normally liquid at room temperature. Avocado butter, the solid version, is created by a process called hydrogenation. In this process the polyunsaturated fats are exposed to hydrogen to convert them to saturated fat and make a solid product.
