Argan oil is a miracle solution worldwide for and for very valid reasons. Found originally in Morocco, this is also known as ‘liquid gold.’
The production of argan oil was an isolated affair in local villages of Morocco even twenty years back. The argan tree is found only in a narrow semi-desert region of Morocco and the complexity of extracting the oil makes it such a rare item. Fascinating, isn’t it?
But even today, if you are looking for a healthy and effective solution to hair fall, argan oil is the answer. Why so? The oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamin E and fatty acids. Combined, they have several benefits.
Let’s learn the benefits and how you can use argan oil for hair growth specifically.
How is argan oil beneficial for hair?
We’ll not waste your time spinning stories. Let the magical ingredient speak for itself.
#1 Keeps dandruff at bay
Dandruff is persistent and keeps coming back. But with the right treatment, you can get rid of it. Luckily, Argan oil helps reduce inflammation and itchiness caused by dandruff. This is because it is moisturizing in nature and has a high content of antioxidants.
#2 Makes hair shiny
Want to know the secret of dazzling shiny hair? Argan oil is the answer. It has a high concentration of essential fatty acids that adds nutrition to your hair, thus improving its natural texture resulting in healthier looking and shiny strands.
#3 Protects against styling and damage
Argan oil has Vitamin E that helps retain the natural elasticity of your hair. As a result, it will be less prone to damage. So even when your hair undergoes heat-styling and coloring treatments, using argan oil or argan oil induced products daily is healthy. This is also a reason why it works well as a heat protectant and against sun damage.
#4 Detangles hair and reduces frizz
Argan oil penetrates the hair deeper than any other oil because it has smaller molecules. It is non-sticky, lightweight, and makes the hair smoother and softer. Moreover, the deeply nourishing quality of the oil ensures the hair is moisturized sufficiently so that it does not split.
Now that you know the benefits, know how to use this oil in the best way possible for hair that shine with heart and health.
How to use argan oil for hair growth
Argan oil is a versatile natural hair oil that can be used in different ways. From hair growth products to styling, a few drops of this oil are enough to give your hair all the nourishment it needs.
Argan oil as a hair mask
Why buy expensive deep conditioning masks when you can make one at home without any hassle? All you will need is a good quality argan oil blended product. The Naked & Raw Coffee Scalp & Hair Oil is one such product which is a blend of nourishing oils like coffee oil, argan oil, etc. that will work as a mask.
Here’s how to use it:
- Apply 8-10 drops of oil on your hair and scalp.
- Massage your hair for at least 10 minutes covering from roots to tips.
- Wrap your hair with a towel and leave it for 30 minutes or even overnight.
- Wash your hair with a mild shampoo and lukewarm water ensuring that there is no residual oil.
Argan oil as a shampoo
You can reap the benefits of Argan oil by using an argan oil-infused shampoo. If your hair looks brittle and is prone to breakage after shampooing, you can improve the condition by switching to an argan oil-based shampoo. One such product is the Naked & Raw Coffee Shampoo that gives you the goodness of both argan and coffee and is mild too.
Another way to get the benefits of using argan oil while shampooing is by adding a couple of drops of the oil to your Naked & Raw Coffee shampoo. Here’s how to make an argan oil infused shampoo:
- Mix a few drops of oil in the shampoo on your palm.
- Massage this for 2-3minutes in your scalp and then rinse it off as usual.
- Repeat this every time you shampoo to improve brittle hair.
Argan oil serves as a very good leave-in conditioner since it can be absorbed easily by the hair and it's non-sticky. But the quantity you use should be moderated so that it does not weigh down the hair.
The Naked & Raw Coffee Scalp & Hair Oil works great as a conditioner since both coffee and argan are easily absorbed and are rich in antioxidants. Just apply a few drops of the oil to the lengths after shampooing and enjoy your gorgeous locks.
Argan oil has a variety of benefits that make it a primary ingredient in the best hair products available today. It nourishes the hair, prevents frizz, makes the hair softer, and improves the overall health of the hair.
In all honesty, argan oil when combined with caffeine can be the replacement of multiple hair care products on your vanity and give you a much better result, making it a coveted beauty ingredient today.
