Can you imagine how delicious a fruit must be if goats literally climb trees to eat it? Inside this fruit hides a special nut that releases a golden liquid, argan oil.
Argan oil is truly a gift of nature. Loaded with vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids, it feeds your hair everything it needs to style effortlessly and shine like a beautiful star.
The best part? Argan oil is super versatile. You can use it for all your hair care needs. Want to moisturize hair? Check. Add shine? Check. Get rid of dandruff? Check again.
Here are five smart uses for argan oil that’ll give you softer and shinier hair:
Hair’s feeling a little dull? All that frequent washing, hair drying and pretty styling left it looking a little brittle and worse for wear? Those annoying split ends have made an appearance again? No worries, argan oil will fix it all in a jiffy. You can use it as a normal conditioner, but it does a much better job when left on your mane overnight.
Here’s how it works: warm 6 to 8 drops of argan oil in your hands. Pat onto hair to distribute evenly, then massage it on your scalp, working your way down to the ends of your hair. Pull all of your hair up and under a shower cap so you won’t turn your pillow into a greasy mess.
When you wake up in the morning, wash your hair as usual. Do it once a week. It’ll turn your straw-like, dull hair into a soft and shiny mane. And those split ends that were bothering you? Argan oil seals them back up again.
I know you know it. The heat from your blowdryer, straightener and other styling tools dries out your hair like crazy. But what are you gonna do, stop using them?! That’s not an option.
Get your argan oil on. Apply a few drops all over your hair and comb it through to distribute it evenly everywhere. The oil coats every strand of your hair, sealing in moisture and keeping it safe from heat damage.
You know what the best thing about argan oil is? This oil ain’t all that greasy. Sure, if you go overboard, you’ll make a bit of a mess, but a few drops nourish your hair without turning it into a frying pan.
This is also why it makes such a great treatment for flyaways. Using it once a week as a leave-in conditioner helps tame frizz but you can use a few drops whenever a few strands of your hair decide to go their own way. The trick is to focus on the ends of your hair.
If you’ve never heard of a pre-shampoo treatment, here’s the theory behind it: washing your hair too often or with harsh shampoos can remove too much sebum, hair’s natural moisturizer. If this happens, your hair turns as dry as the Sahara and loses all its shine.
But if you add more oil to your hair before washing? Then your shampoo will clean your hair but leave just enough oil behind to keep it naturally moisturized. Win win.
Plus, the oil will also help remove product and pollution build-up that dulls, and can even cause hair breakage.
Here’s how to do it: slather argan oil generously all over your hair and brush it through so it coats every strand. You can wash it straight away but, for best results, leave it on for at least a couple of hours. That’ll give it time to penetrate your hair, leaving it softer and stronger.
Argan oil won’t rid you completely of dandruff, but it’ll go a long way into soothing the dry, itchy scalp that always comes along with it. The antioxidants and vitamins in argan oil have sooting properties that fight off the inflammation and banish dryness.
You know the drill by now. Massage a few drops in the palm of your hands, apply it to your scalp and hair, put your shower cap on and wait two hours. You can leave it on for longer if you want but two hours is the minimum. Twice a week will do the trick.
