Argan oil is made from the kernels of the argan tree. The argan tree is native to Morocco. Interestingly enough, argan oil is not only used as a beauty product for beautiful, silky hair and soft skin in Morocco, but it is also eaten. Argan oil is hearty-healthy much like olive oil and can lower cholesterol. What can be better than using a natural, healthy product on your hair that is safe enough to eat?
Argan oil is often referred to as liquid gold, and it’s for good reason. It’s full of vitamins, including A and E, and anti-oxidants. These qualities make this oil rich and nourishing and a perfect, moisturizing conditioner for hair. Since argan oil is so versatile, you can use it in any way that is convenient for you. Add a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner, use it as a leave-in treatment, or simply rub a drop or two into your hair to tame frizz, add shine, and condition it. Start out by using just a few drops on your hair. If your hair is thicker or longer, add a few more drops. But be careful and don’t overdo it. Too much of any kind of oil can weigh hair down. Since argan oil’s high vitamin content makes it a great skin moisturizer, the oil is also a great treatment for your scalp. Use it to promote hair growth or to treat a dry or itchy scalp.
Argan oil works well on all types of hair, so you can’t go wrong by incorporating it into your hair routine (if you’re not doing it already). Try using argan oil as a hair treatment in the shower, as a leave-in conditioner, or even as a scalp treatment. Your hair will be stronger, shinier, and most importantly healthier than it has ever been before!
