Argan OilArgan oil comes from the nut of the Argan tree. The tree only grows in certain areas of Morocco, and lives to be anywhere from 150 to 200 years old. However, because it does not start to produce nuts until it is around 50 years old, there is a certain rarity to the oil. The oil is expressed from the nuts through a rather laborious process, which makes it even more rare. Beyond being used as a food, it has a number of beauty applications, particularly when it comes to the hair.
Benefits of Argan Oil
- Calms frizzy ends
- Adds moisture to dry hair
- Can be applied directly to the scalp to add moisture, calming dandruff and itchy scalp
- Adds shine and strength
How Argan Oil WorksIt is the contents of the oil that promotes the benefits. The Argan nut oil is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids that are known to naturally moisturize dry skin and hair, while improving nail health.
While eating a diet rich in vitamin E and essentially fatty acids can help your body build strong hair and nails from the inside out, using argan oil directly on your hair and skin can help improve its appearance as well.
Argan oil works on dry hair to tame frizz and add shine. When it is applied to wet hair or the scalp, it works as an overall treatment to add moisture and build strength. To build moisture on the scalp, apply at night before bed, and wash your hair in the morning when you wake up. The time you spend sleeping will give the oil the time it needs to work its magic.
