5 reasons you should be using argan oil in your hair
BY LUSETA BEAUTY
There is a reason why many have dubbed Argan Oil to be “liquid gold.” Derived from the Argan tree that grows in Morocco, the highly sought after oil is rich in nutrients and vitamins that can help restore the body and hair to its best condition. As a topical product, Argan oil is thought to have healing properties that can do things like reduce inflammation, diminish signs of aging, and even heal wounds. On the hair, however, Argan oil’s restorative properties are seemingly never-ending, as just a few drops of the nourishing ingredient can take care of virtually all of your hair worries. Here are just a few reasons how:
IT MOISTURIZES HAIR
Since Argan oil naturally contains a high concentration of Vitamin E and other essential fatty acids needed for proper moisture and nourishment, it helps to keep hair moisturized and protected against drying elements like heat and sulfates in many shampoos. The essential vitamins and fatty acids that are found naturally in Argan oil can help smooth over frayed hair strands and nourish split ends to help make your hair feel healthier and easier to brush.
PROTECTION FROM HEAT STYLING TOOLS
While a couple of drops of Argan oil may not replace a heat protectant spray or cream, the same nutrients that help moisturize your hair can help provide protection against tools like blow dryers and hair irons. Vitamin E helps provide added nutrition and moisture to the hair while the essential amino acids found in the oil keep it from damaging the hair strand further. It’s no wonder why so many heat styling products contain Argan oil as an active ingredient.
REDUCES FRIZZ AND INCREASES SHINE
On that note, Argan oil also works great to help prevent frizz and increase shine. In dry, hot climates (such as a high desert area) Argan oil works great to prevent breakage that comes from being too dry. Breakage, as you may know, is one of the biggest ways that hair appears more frizzy. Adding a couple of drops of Argan oil in your hair while it’s still wet will not only help prevent that unwanted breakage and frizz, but it will help hair appear smooth and shiny.
PROMOTES HAIR GROWTH
This is one of the often less-marketed benefits of Argan oil, but the holy grail ingredient also contains a lot of essential antioxidants that can help reduce scalp inflammation and stimulate hair growth. Many people begin to notice that, after using Argan oil regularly for a couple of months, their hair begins to grow faster than it normally would. The faster growth, combined with the essential nutrients that help nourish the hair and prevent breakage and split ends, means that Argan oil may just be the key to getting the long hair you’ve always dreamed of but have never been able to achieve.
PREVENTS SCALP INFLAMMATION AND DANDRUFF
Speaking of scalp inflammation, the naturally high levels of antioxidants found in Argan oil can help reduce skin inflammation around the scalp. It can also help to neutralize free radicals that your skin gets exposed to through things like pollution or the sun, so we recommend putting a few drops in your hair and on your scalp each night after being out for the day. In turn, the antioxidants and combined source of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids can help diminish the symptoms of dandruff around the scalp.
