Argan has become very popular in mainstream society. You will find it in shampoo, conditioner, hair masks, and skin products. However, one of the lovely things about pure argan oil is that you don't need any other products along with it; it works extremely well by itself. Pure argan oil offers more concentrated benefits and excellent results. The cost of argan is sometimes prohibitive, but remember that a little goes a long way - one of our 100 ml bottles of argan will last you a very long time.
An anti-aging dream
Argan is a soft and silky oil. It nourishes the skin and keeps it elastic and hydrated. Using it as a moisturizer or with your nightly skin regimen will do wonders for your skin. Your entire body will benefit from using argan oil. It does leave a bit of an oily feeling on the skin which is why I suggest you use it at night before sleep so that it has all night to absorb into the skin.
Loves to fix damaged hair
Whether it be dry, fried, or unhealthy argan works miracles on the hair. Try it as a leave-in conditioner or a hot oil treatment. It revitalizes, nourishes, and repairs even the most damaged hair.
Treats wounds and inflammation
While argan is revered for its excellent work on the hair, it also helps heal the skin. It has been used for hundreds of years to heal skin wounds. The healing properties of Vitamin A, Vitamin E, linoleic acid, and omega 6 fatty acids is what makes argan so perfect to use for minor wounds and inflammation.
Quick Tip #1: Hot Oil Treatment - Warm your argan oil by placing the bottle in a bowl of hot water. Once the oil is heated apply liberally all over the hair. Leave on for 20 minutes and then lightly wash your hair. Use conditioner if necessary, but you may not need it. Repeat weekly.
Quick Tip #2: Moisturizer - Rub a bit of argan into dry skin. You don't need very much. Use daily.
Quick Tip #3: Overnight Leave In Hair Treatment - On clean, damp hair apply argan oil. Be sure to saturate the hair through to the ends, but not so much that the oil drips. Leave in overnight and wash out in the morning.
