Is Avocado Oil The New Coconut Oil?

Avocados are the best. Just look at Instagram. The hashtag "avocado" has been used over 1.6 million times. While eating them, you can tell people smugly, "It's a healthy fat." And then of course there's guacamole, which I think should be its own food group.

When I read that Lupita Nyong'o uses it on her hair and skin I knew I was onto something: Could avocado oil dethrone coconut oil?

Avocado oil also smells much more mild than coconut oil, which smells like, yeah, coconuts.
