What is argan oil? Best argan oil uses for your hair

You may or may not have used it (yet) but there is no way you haven’t heard of it. Argan oil has swiftly bagged the top-drawer status in the beauty realm and we’re one hundred percent here for it. Our love for this ingredient had us explore the North African country of Morocco, which is our primary source for this ingredient. Extracted by hand-crushing the nuts of argan trees, this essential oil is the one thing you need to explore if you’re obsessed with hair care. Find out all the reasons why you’re making the right choice by picking argan oil for hair below. 

OK but, what is argan oil?
Made from the kernels of argan nuts, argan oil for hair and skin is not a new phenomenon and has long been used by African women to benefit from its highly moisturizing property. It’s full of essential ingredients like antioxidants, fatty acids and Vitamin E making it a hair care and skin care staple. 

How argan oil helps hair:

With its slew of benefits, of course!  

1.    It’s like sunscreen for your hair 
From acting as a daily protector from UV rays to greatly minimizing the damage done by hair styling tools, argan oil is one of the best natural heat-protecting ingredients to make use of, courtesy of the antioxidants present in it. 

2.    Deeply moisturizes them tresses 
Given that argan oil is rich in fatty acids, products infused with it instantaneously moisturize and revitalize dry mane and lock-in the much-needed moisture. Post-wash, once the hair is dry, find yourself continually brushing your fingers through your hair for that ultra-soft feel argan oil lends. 

3.    Expert at fighting frizz 
Getting rid of frizz is not the easiest thing in the world. Those difficult, rough strands of hair standing out to make their presence known to the world are best tamed with the antioxidants and fatty acids present in argan oil.  

4.    Bid adieu to dandruff 
Naturally, right? Argan oil, primarily used to treat dry hair, moisturizes the scalp and in the process, frees it of those pesky, white flakes causing itching and irritation. 

5.    Locks in lustre
A sure-fire way of boosting the sheen of your locks is, you guessed it, by fuelling them with argan oil. Rich in Vitamin E, this Moroccan ingredient adds a shiny layer to your strands and increases hair elasticity making them appear nice and glossy.
