it's good for the hair by promoting hair growth, making hair shiny and soft, and works as a moisturizer
I really got best conditioner for my thin hairs from I want to purchase it, please help me in this purpose. Can I get it from online? Do I need to pay online and if yes then How?
I use mashed ripe avocado and olive oil on my hair as a deep conditioner. It leaves it soft and shiny with well defined curls.   I use it sometimes instead of a store brought deep conditioner when I have an avocado I don't want to eat. Avocados contain saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsturated fatty acids,  and the saturated fatty acids can be absorbed into the hair strands.
