What color is the oil?
The Avocado Hair Oil is a golden, yellow color.
It does not have any added dyes or colorants. The color you see is 100% natural.
Please store your oil in a cool, dry, and dark place for maximum storage life and maximum product effectiveness. Light can cause the oil to change color and break down the properties. Don't be alarmed if your oil changes slight color over time - this is normal. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
How long will a bottle of Avocado Hair Oil last?
The standard size Avocado Hair Oil is 2 fl. oz | 60 mL.
The amount of time the bottle will last will depend on how much oil you are using.
If you have thin, fine hair, you may use less oil. If you have thick, coarse, dry hair, you may use more oil. Also, it depends if you use the hair oil daily (reccomended), every other day, every few days etc. Also, depends on if you do a hair mask 1-2 times per week.
Based on our average calculations, if you have medium texture and medium length hair, and you use the hair oil DAILY and do a hair mask 1-2 x per week, the
hair oil should last approximately 2-4 months.
Will the oil make my hair greasy?
Short answer, no, it should not make your hair greasy.
Our oil is carefully formulated and balanced with a combination of hydrating, deep moisture oils and light, dry oils.
There are many factors that can cause your hair to feel greasy. It depends on your normal hair length, texture, volume, dryness and how much oil you use.
Our product contains 100% natural, REAL oils. This real oil will provide deep hydration and deliver vitamins and minerals to your hair. Many other hair products on the market today contain silicones as fillers. These silicones can cause your hair to feel "slippery" because the product is basically coating your hair with plastic. Silicones give a fake appearance of shine, and fake feel of smoothness. But in reality, silicones coat your hair, and block the real nutrients from being delivered. If you are accustomed to using products with silicones, our product may feel different at first. This is completely normal! Our hair oil contains REAL ingredients with REAL nutrients. It will be super hydrating and moisturizing.

-Remember a little oil goes a long way.
-Start with a few drops and test on dry hair first to see the effect.
-If you are prone to greasy hair, apply our hair oil from mid-lengths and down to end of hair, and avoid the roots.
Are your products safe for pregnant women or women who are nursing?
If you are pregnant or nursing, please consult your physician.
The reason we ask you to contact your physician is because our product contains 4 absolute essential oils that we use for our scent: bergamot, grapefruit, ylang ylang, and rose. (We do not use synthetic fragrance / parfum / perfume.)
We use a very low dilution of absolute essential oils (less than 2%).
Use of essential oils while pregnant can be a controversial topic. Some studies show that certain essential oil smells can relax and/or stimulate you. Some doctors recommend to avoid essential oils during pregnancy, while others say they can be safe in small dose. These statements are based on our online research about essential oils and pregnancy. We cannot give you any medical guidance if you should use or should not use our product. PLEASE PLEASE consult your physician. Always safety first!
