Argan Oil and All Its Benefits

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! This is the first blog post for the year 2011 and many more to come! I wanted to start off by saying Thank You to all of my followers for following the blog throughout the year 2010!! I also want to say Welcome to my new followers!! This year is going to be great and I'm glad you're here to share it with me!!

Let me just say that before I started to really dig deeper into growing my hair and also trying new things, I just recently decided to start using hair oils. Before I was extremely skeptical of using a lot of oils on my hair simply because after a few days my hair has the tendency to get oily on its on. So I decided to give it try so I've been using hair oils on my hair for a while and coconut oil was the first one that I used which I discussed in my post the benefits and just experimenting in general. The next oil that I want to try is Argan Oil. I have been using some hair products that contain Argan Oil but I am going to get some in its own little bottle just to have. I will discuss those products in later posts.

So whats the 411 on Argan Oil??
  • Argan oil is the end result of crushed nuts from the argan tree. After these nuts (pictured above) have been crushed there is oil that is released thus producing Argan oil. 
  • Argan Oil is proven to solve dry hair, dull hair, and frizzy hair. It surpasses jojoba oil and olive oil and is rich in Vitamin E. It contains Omega 3 and Omega 9 unsaturated fatty acids and provides nutrition to hair.  
  • Just like Coconut oil it can penetrate the hair shaft and repair damaged hair follicles. It's excellent for increasing the shine of lack luster dry hair by locking moisture into the hair. The oil is non greasy and non oily and great for taming frizzy, unmanageable hair.
  • It's light and almost weightless, less probability of build up and also helps to soften hair.
  • Acts as a shield for harmful UV rays and protects the hair from environmental pollution. It's very effective for hair growth  and helps to repair and inhibit the occurrence of split ends.  It's also great for hair loss.
  • Rich in antioxidants, nourishes the hair and makes the hair shine with health and radiance
  • Restores bounce to the hair.
  • The oil works wonders for dry coarse hair and helps to soften the strands and make it silky.

How to Use it:
  • Heat the oil and apply it to your scalp and hair. Dip a towel in hot water and wrap it around your hair. The heat from the towel will make the hair follicles absorb the oil.
  • Wash your hair with a mild shampoo and follow it with a conditioner.
  • For split ends, massage a few drops of argan oil on your hair after shampooing and conditioning.
