For a year or two, I suddenly started seeing beauty products shelves loaded with Argan oil and I started wondering why is that and it led me to do some research on the benefits of argan oil and how you can use it in many different ways to protect your hair. This oil is slightly expensive when compared to other ones like coconut oil etc. in the beauty section but when I tell you about the positive effects it will have on growth and strength of your hair, you will know right away that it is worth the price.
Argan oil and its benefits:
SO ladies, let me first tell you that what argan oil is. Argan oil is an essential oil for hair which is diffused from the argan tree’s kernel which is native to Morocco. Argan oil is rich in many nutrients. It has minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidant properties. This is your go to oil if you want to make your hair softer.
Many beauty gurus call it an ancient beauty secret which helps in hydrating the rough and dehydrated hair. The vitamin E found in this oil with other essentials like fatty acid and rich anti-oxidants contents, naturally help your hair to restore the natural shine and increase hair elasticity. It is also a great UV protector. As it works amazingly as free radical neutralizer, it helps minimize any damage to your hair which is caused by free radicals.
All of us, put our hair through pollution, hot tools and other chemical treatments every single day but the vitamin E present in argan oil can secure our hair from damage by avoiding breakage and splitting if used on regular basis.
How to use it?
Well, it would be great if you can use argan oil on its own. There is nothing better than that for the growth of your hair. But if you do not have time for oiling, every now and then, you can use the products which come with the argan oil as a main ingredient. As argan oil is rich in Vitamin A, C and E, omega 6 fatty acids and linoleic acid, they make argan oil a great ingredient for a conditioner. It helps making your locks shinier, manageable and nourished.
Moreover, to keep your hair healthy after using all the hot tools for styling, it is the best idea to use heat protectant spray which comes with argan oil as one of the ingredients. It has great slip which also makes styling easier and keeps the hair nourished and conditioned.
You can also use argan oil in form of hair masks as they help nourish and stop damage to your hair. If you apply hair mask with argan oil as a main ingredient for 15-30 minutes, you can reap all good benefits from it within that half hour. It also helps reduce inflammation and dandruff.
Argan oil benefits for hair are immense and if you have it in its natural form, you can use it on your body, hands and face to moisturize your skin.
