Its properties and texture makes it especially suitable for use in hair care. Due to its aroma and thick, oily consistency, the oil of the Avocado is often used at a low ratio (highly diluted) in blends and formulations.
Some people recommend that this oil (avocado) should not be refrigerated since certain important, fragile constituents of the avocado oil may be affected.
Other vegetable oils are often used to dilute this oil (avocado) for topical application, but it may be used alone. Add a small amount of this oil to another vegetable oil (such as sweet almond oil) to create a hydrating and nourishing base for diluting essential oils prior to topical application.
