Avocado Oil vs Grapeseed Oil

I've started a list of things I plan on buying in the summer for my hair....I like to think ahead hahaha. And I'm trying to decide if Avocado or grapeseed oil would have better effects.
I want to know other naturals opinions on these two oils.




BTW, I'm getting a hair analysis by Goosefootprints done in the summer too so I'll know my properties better

    How dry and/or brittle is your hair?

    If it isn't in anyway then go for grapeseed oil however if it is go for avocado oil.

    If it sometimes is go for grapeseed oil and buy coconut oil to use as a pre-poo if it's cheaper.

    Why? I sometimes used avocado oil but now rarely so since my brittle hair has been trimmed off (I had a medical condition lead me to have brittle hair). I now gave half a bottle which I find too much for my hair which I'm using on my skin. I also have some jojoba oil and coconut oil. The jojoba oil I can still use on my hair as it's a lighter oil (I properly end up using that on my skin as well as normally I don't use oils) and as the coconut oil is much cheaper and penetrates strands better than avocado oil if I want to do a pre-poo that's what I use.

    My hair isn't extremely dry, it has it's days. So I think I'll go for grapeseed thanks!

    Avocado is penetrating, grapeseed more of a sealer oil - depends what you need. If you want penetrating for deep treatments just go for the cheapest rich source of oleic acid or lauric acid you can find in your country (coconut, palm kernel, sweet almond, olive).

    TBH you might best prioritising the hair analysis if you don't know your properties, its not much more expensive than a bottle of decent quality oil.
