Organic argan oil, also known as Moroccan argan oil, is one of those obscure ingredients that have recently seen a huge upswing. The reason is simple: this oil is fantastic when it comes to hair and skin care.
It is produced from the nuts of Argan tree that grows only in the Agadir province of Morocco. There it is mostly used for its nutritional value; however, in the rest of the world, its use in beauty products is more prominent .
It is used on all hair types and textures. It can be applied after shampooing, on damp hair. Rubbing a small amount of oil on scalp, adds shine, reduces frizziness as well as the overall hair drying time. Once you applied it, cover the hair with a shower cap or wrap for intense hair treatment. Shampoos with organic argan oil added to them cleanse the scalp as well as the hair, leaving it more manageable and soft.
If your hair has suffered any kind of damage (hair dye, sun damage) and is brittle and dry, apply the oil and leave it on for a while, you can even leave it on overnight. After that, simply wash it with your favorite shampoo. You will notice the difference immediately.
Another use is as a stretch mark diminished. The combination of antioxidants that fight free radicals that damage the skin and Vitamin E, delivers a combination that rejuvenates the skin's deeper layers and leave it supple and elastic.
Finally, apply a small amount on nails and cuticles or soak your fingertips in a mix of argan and olive oil. Nails become stronger and cuticles softer.
This oil is nothing short of miraculous when it comes to over delivering deep, intense conditioning to either hair, body, face or nails. A couple of drops go a long way in maintaining healthy, nourished skin.
