Looking to enhance your hair with a new relationship? Fall in love with avocado. Yes – you read right, a.v.o.c.a.d.o.
With this single superfood, you can whip your locks into shape. Add it to your salad or blend it into your smoothie and you’ll see some amazing results over time. However, if you really want to benefit from this fleshy fruit and notice quick, defined results, then go after the oil!
The benefits of avocado oil for hair are straordinari!
The science behind it: Avocado oil is a natural emollient that can be used to increase the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D, K, and E. The oil is also infused with its own beneficial vitamins and nutrients (such as vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, iron, and zinc).
But what does avocado do for your hair, exactly?
1. Nourishes and Strengthens
As mentioned, avocado oil is enriched with vitamins and essential fatty acids that not only nourish the scalp but keep tresses looking healthy, shiny, and hydrated. It’s also loaded with potassium and amino acids, two ingredients that actively work to revitalise and deep condition the driest, coarsest hair – strengthening it in its wake.
Add life and lustre back to depleted hair with our very own avocado-infused Vita Rejuvenating Hair Mask. Just like the autumn Tuscany rains renew the place of RF’s birth, this product brings resilience, softness, and vitality back to fragile and depleted hair. ** It’s also great for greying hair and hair loss concerns.
2. Softens and Smoothens
Other avocado benefits for hair include the superfood’s ability to soften and smoothen hair. Avocado oil’s emollience helps to optimally hydrate hair while potassium and magnesium (two minerals found in avocado oil) lock in moisture. The result is improved hair texture with a shine boost.
Tame tresses and add a glorious silk-like texture to your hair with Velluto Straightening Serum. Made in Italy, but kind enough to share its advanced formula with the world, this luxury hair care product relies on avocado oil to help fight frizz while it softens, strengthens, and conditions.
3. Repair and Protects
Avocado oil can improve overall hair health as it contains natural fatty acids that help to repair the hair cuticle and prevent breakage. AND – due to its ability to hydrate hair and lock in moisture, it can also help prevent heat styling damage (just another bonus).
Finally, avocado for hair has the advantage of permeating locks with several antioxidants. These antioxidants help shield your scalp and hair from harmful free radicals created by stress and pollution. The result is suppler hair that’s less prone to breakage.
Repair and protect your hair with RF’s Prodigio Regenerating Hair Supplement. Infused with natural goodness, including avocado oil, this award-winning “magic potion” helps to renew damaged hair and seal split ends. Just a few drops at the end of your hair care routine will make a significant impact on your locks!
How to use avocado products for hair…
1. Hair massage
To keep your hair moisturised and protected, massage your hair with a hair care product that contains avocado oil, such as the Prodigio Regenerating Oil.
How to massage the hair:
- Apply 2-4 drops of the Prodigio Regenerating Oil every day on wet or dry hair
- Use finger tips to run the oil through your hair to your ends.
- The Prodigio Regenerating Oil is a leave-in treatment and there is no need to wash it out. It will leave your hair feeling and smelling great as well as adding shine and protection.
2. Hair treatment
An avocado hair mask will treat your hair so that it feels stronger, healthier, and more supple than before. The fruit’s natural oils will still take effect and will lubricate the hair to make it appear shinier and healthier.
Rossano Ferretti have award winning and delightful hair masks, which have Avocado as a key and essential ingredient, such as the aforementioned Vita rejuvenating Mask for thin or fragile hair and the Intenso Softening & Smoothing Mask, ideal for thick hair, that replenishes hair by using avocado as a main ingredient. Follow these simple steps to get the best results from your Hair Mask routine:
- Wash your hair with your chosen RF Shampoo
- Towel dry your hair and then apply a walnut-sized amount of treatment to your hair
- Apply it from root to tip
- Leave the mask on for a few minutes before rinsing and drying your hair
* Treat yourself to this intensive hair mask regimen every two weeks but if you hair is very dry or damaged then you can apply the Mask whenever you wash your hair until the condition improves.
3. Deep conditioning
After washing your hair with shampoo, you can use an avocado-based conditioner as with Rossano Ferretti Grandioso Volumising Conditioner, as a conditioning treatment designed specifically for fine or flat hair.
- Wash your hair and then apply a small amount of conditioner onto your fingers
- Then, run your fingers through your hair from root to tip
- Repeat this action as many times as needed to thickly coat your hair
- Leave the product in your hair for at least 30 seconds and then rinse it out with warm water.
Avocado oil for hair benefits – are they for everyone?
Given avocado’s amazing ability to transform the texture of strands from straw-like to cashmere-soft, we must give it its due praise as a super hydration booster. In essence, individuals with dry, coarse hair and dry scalps will benefit the most from avocado oil’s soothing and moisturising properties.
However – those with finer hair may find products with avocado oil as the main ingredient too heavy for their strands (unless you use Prodigio Oil, Velluto Serum, or our Vita Hair Mask – all these products feature a lightweight formula that leaves no heavy, greasy residue).
The bottom line…
Avocado oil benefits for hair are seemingly endless and it makes sense why many haircare brands rush to include it as an ingredient in their formulas. What makes Rossano Ferretti Parma different is that we combine avocado oil with other complementary, natural ingredients to create hair formulas that are optimally effective. Each one of our vegan-friendly, cruelty-free products has been designed to help you attain your hair goals in the gentlest yet most effective manner.
“Our products have won multiple awards across the globe thanks to their innovative formulation, super results and also the amazing and unique scents.”
