Argan oil is a tree based oil that is cold pressed from the Argan tree. Argan trees are mostly native to Morocco and have been used by the people of that region – Berber – for centuries due to its healing and rejuvenation properties.
In the past 5 years, the popularity of argan oil has exploded as more and more people in the western countries find out about the properties and benefits of this liquid gold.
One area of application that has particularly gained a lot of momentum is the hair. Argan oil on hair can provide a rich and luxurious shine. But besides the cosmetic difference that is visible right away, argan oil also increases the health of the hair by providing it much needed nourishment and nutrients. Argan oil is very versatile and can be used in variety of ways on your hair.
My favorite way of using it is the lengthy deep conditioning treatments, after shower application and managing dry hair by massaging it every few days. Also I have noticed that if you have split ends, just application a few drop to the hair ends can work wonders and give you results very fast.
Deep conditioning is also very popular in saloons and spas and is much appreciated by those who have tried it. It can help in restoring long last health of the hair to dry and damaged hair.
Here is exactly how I like to perform the deep conditioning on my hair. I create a thorough, deep conditioning treatment by working the oil through out my hair. How much hair you would need is based on your own personal needs. Short hair will of course need less and the longer your hair the more oil you would need. The best part if of course the massage on the scalp. It puts me to sleep right away Also say good by to itchy and dry skin on your scalp.
After the deep conditioning you have couple of choices. If your hair is short and manageable without any accessory, you can leave them be. But if you have long hair like me, I like to either wrap them in a towel and sit down with a drink next to the pool…aah thats a different story. Or I put them in a braid and go about my daily business at home.
Just make sure that if you would be coming in contact with other things, then its best to wrap a towel around your head as you dont want things sticking in your hair. Also, if you decide to leave the oil on for the night, cover the bed and pillow so stains do not get into the sheet.
If you are short on time and want a quick service, application after shower is the best way to go. The hair is already damp so you dont need much oil. Just put a few drops, massage into the pam of your hair to warm it up and then rub it on problem areas on your hair.
Arzoyi argan oil is fast absorbing, USDA organic argan oil does not have a strong aroma, and it dissipates on application. I would recommend this oil as not only it is safe but most effective as well.
