Everything You Need To Know About Argan Oil For Your Hair

If you are in the curly world at all, you have probably seen gobs of different hair growth, serum and conditioners with argan oil on the label. 

Argan oil has a plethora of benefits to hair growth and hair health in general.

This is something you will want in your line up for hair products. 

Just a few benefits include…

  • Calms Frizz: Argan oil is a great go-to freshen up mid-day. It helps calm frizz without weighing your hair down in the process. 
  • Moisturizes scalp: great hair starts with a healthy scalp. Use argan oil to gently massage scalp to moisturize and keep hair follicle healthy
  • High in vitamin E: which adds bounce and softness to your curls
  • Hair Sealant: Because it is lightweight, argan oil is the perfect oil to seal your favorite products. 

How to use argan oil

  • The cool thing about argan oil is that it is versatile and can be used in many different ways.
  • It can be as simple as rubbing a few drops in your palms and applying using praying hands (before bed is best). Followed by rubbing on your fingertips, applying to your scalp, and message.
  • Always rub together for a few seconds to activate.
  • It’s best to apply Argan Oil after you’ve applied your favorite styling products. Argan Oil acts as a sealant and would make it hard for other products to stay on the hair shaft if applied first.

You can use Argan Oil as….

  • Leave-In Conditioner/refresh spray
  • Hair growth: Night-time Hair Growth Serum
  • Deep conditioning
