4) Is avocado oil good for hair?

Avocado oil is naturally acidic, so is our scalp. Avocado oil permeates deep into the scalp and provides nutrients directly to hair follicles. This action results in excellent hair growth. Avocado oil also has fabulous hair strand lubricating and detangling properties. High-quality hair conditioner such as Plush Hair Conditioner utilizes organic avocado oil that provides much-needed nourishment to the scalp, hair follicles, and conditions growing and existing hair strands.
