Argan oil is renowned across the world for skin care and to give you beautiful, gorgeous hair. Extracted in Morocco from the Argan tree, Argan oil has been harvested by the natives for centuries. The oil is so old and rare that it is earned itself the nick name of ‘liquid gold’.
The nick name isn’t just because of its gold color either. The oil is rich in vitamins and fatty acids that keep your hair and skin moisturized and glowing with good health. Whether you use it in conjunction with other products or use it on its own, Argan oil has the following benefits to offer.
Myth 1: A Little Goes a Long Way
This is true. Argan oil is extremely potent and even in small quantities it is capable of meeting all the nutritional needs of your hair. Most people tend to use argan oil in conjunction with other products such as carrier oils. Used in this manner, not only do they get to meet the needs of their hair, they get to prolong the use of Argan oil. In this way, one bottle or two of potent Argan oil can last for almost 2 to 3 months or more.
Myth 2: Can Revive Dry Hair
This is true. For hair that is extremely dry or brittle, Argan oil can be the perfect moisturizer. In fact, it is renowned for its moisturizing qualities and is recommended for use to get rid of frizz as well. Argan oil also has a molecular structure that makes it easy to absorb into the hair oil. Owing to this reason, dry or brittle hair can really benefit from it. For people with dry, brittle, natural hair, any product with Argan oil can work wonders owing to the fact that it moisturizes and helps to make curls bouncy again.
Myth 3: Should Not Be Used on Color Treated Hair
This is not true. In fact, for color treated hair, Argan oil can be a treat since the harsh chemicals can often strip away the natural oils of the hair. When you use a product with Argan oil or smother it with Argan oil, you not only replenish the natural oils of your hair, you also nourish your hair with vital fatty acids that allow your hair to recover from the harmful chemicals it was exposed to. The only time you can be afraid of Argan oil reacting with your color treated hair is if you are using in an undiluted form. If you are using a product that contains Argan oil, you do not have to worry about it.
Myth 4: Argan Oil is Hypoallergenic
This is true but not always. The oil is great for soothing and diminishing the presence of skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis but it depends on the condition of your skin as well as the potency of the oil. In its undiluted form, it may very well aggravate the skin condition, even if it is on your scalp. On the other hand, products that contain Argan oil don’t aggravate and allow you to take advantage of its hypoallergenic qualities with ease.
