  • How long you should leave avocado oil in your hair will largely depend on what you want to use the oil for.
  • If you want to use avocado oil to repair extreme damage left by bleaching or because your hair is ruined, you can leave it on your hair overnight. And I’ll tell you how often to do this later on.
  • If you want to use the oil to moisturize and make your hair more manageable, I recommend leaving the oil on for between twenty minutes and three hours, depending on your hair’s needs.

So, as you can see,  the first thing you should get clear before using avocado oil is what you will use it for. 

 

Furthermore, I would go so far as to tell you that if you’re not clear on what you’re going to use the oil for, don’t use it yet.

A lot of people use products on their hair because it’s a fashion trend or because someone recommended it to them. And the problem with this is that each person’s hair is different.

And what may moisturize or repair your friend’s hair may not work for you. Because, for example, your hair might be oily.

As a hairdresser, for example, I have clients for whom I recommend leaving coconut oil on for twenty minutes, and for other clients, I recommend leaving it on overnight.

 

So, the first thing is to clearly understand what you want to use avocado oil for.

And the second thing you should understand beyond what I can recommend here is that you should try, that you experiment.  Start by trying the times I suggest here, but don’t take it as gospel. 

  • After a few applications, if you achieve what you want, then continue to leave the oil in your hair for that length of time.
  • And if you don’t achieve the results you’re looking for, play around with the exposure times and even how often you use the oil.

So, if you want to know how long to leave avocado oil in your hair and how to do it, read on.

Every time you leave avocado oil in your hair overnight, you’ll repair the hair cuticles, hydrating your hair fiber.

 

And that will strengthen your hair, decreasing breakage.

But  it’s very important you leave the avocado oil on your hair overnight only once a week. 

Because otherwise, you can saturate your hair with fatty acids, which will lead to scalp irritation and dandruff.

  • Comb your dry, clean hair and place a teaspoon of avocado oil in the palm of your hand. Activate the oil by rubbing it between your palms.
  • Start the application from the roots to the ends.
  • Place another teaspoon of oil in one of your palms and activate the oil with heat by rubbing it between your palms. Apply the oil to the lengths first, and work through to the ends.
  • Massage your scalp and roots for five minutes.
  • Massage the lengths and ends for five minutes.
  • Gather your hair together and cover it with a shower cap to keep the heat in. That way the oil will work better.
  • The next morning, rinse your hair with plenty of warm water, letting it run for three to four minutes.
  • Finally, wash your hair with your usual shampoo and hair conditioner.
