The Benefits of Argan Oil for Hair

The benefits of argan oil for hair are widely touted by many beauty products. Shampoos, hair treatments, and styling products all praise argan oil as a defining ingredient.

What is Argan Oil?

Argan oil is a plant oil that comes from argan trees that are native to Morocco. The oil is extracted from the kernels in the nuts that are within an argan tree’s fruit. The extraction process is done by hand, including the pealing of the fruit, the cracking of the nut, and the pressing of the kernels for oil – quite an arduous task!

The Benefits of Argan Oil

So why all the fuss? Argan oil is packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that hydrate, rejuvenate, and protect. Vitamin E and A promote new cell production while minerals and antioxidants nourish and calm inflammation. It is a multi-miracle serum straight from Mother Nature, perfect for pampering your skin and hair.

Argan Oil for Hair

Argan oil is great for keeping hair shiny and healthy. This non-greasy oil protects from heat damage (perfect for those of us attached to our blow dryers and flat irons) as well harmful UV rays from the sun.  It is also a great leave-in conditioner and split-end tamer! The benefits of argan oil apply to the body as well! It hydrates the skin and locks in moisture with just a few drops.

Go Organic

With so many products on the beauty market boasting argan oil as an ingredient, how do you know which one is the best? To keep your skin and hair free of unwanted toxins and parabens, it is always best to go organic.

Choosing the Best Skin Care Line

So Many Choices

With so many different body products out there, how do you choose the best skin care line for you? Watching television last night, I counted five different skin care advertisements in an hour time slot! And what about all of the ever-changing ingredient fads? From grapefruit and charcoal, celebrity-endorsed concoctions infused with rare melons to expensive chemical peels and injectables, even exclusive creams made with gold, the choices can be overwhelming (and sometimes absurd).  So where do you start when you have so many options?

Pros & Cons

Begin by taking a look at what you have used in the past. Make a pros and cons list, highlighting the product lines that have been the most beneficial as well as the most lack-luster. What stands out? Are there certain skin care lines that cleared up your acne but also dried out your skin? Or perhaps a brand that was ultra-hydrating but made you feel oily by the end of the day?

Know Your Skin Type

Knowing your skin type will play a huge role in which skin care line you should be using. If you find certain products zap your skin of moisture and cause flakes, you are prone to dry skin. Feel like certain products leave you with a shiny T-zone by the end of the day? You may have oily skin. Go back to that pros and cons list and see which skincare products have produced the most balancing results for you.

The Importance of Ingredients

Now let’s take a look at the ingredients in your skin care products. In my quest for clear skin, I relied heavily on chemical-based products that severely dried out my skin. Looking back at my pros and cons list, I discovered that I have sensitive, acne-prone skin that is irritated by lab-made product lines and heavy prescription creams. It was not until I started using simple, organic products with pure ingredients that my skin found proper balance. I find this to be the case with a lot of people who have sensitive skin. Chemicals are irritants, foreign to delicate skin. The best skin care lines are organic, made with prescriptions from Mother Nature, not Dr. Chemical.
