The benefits of argan oil for hair care

Argan oil: properties and benefits 

Here’s why you should introduce argan oil into your hair care routine and what it will do to your hair and scalp. Get ready to discover the best kept secret to hydrated, healthy and radiant hair. 

What is argan oil? 

Argan oil is a highly valued natural ingredient that is extracted from the nut of the argan tree, a tree found in Morocco. Due to its nourishing properties, argan oil has been used for centuries to protect and improve the health of our skin and hair. 

What is argan oil used for? 

Argan oil helps replenish some of the oils that hair loses due to exposure to external factors such as high temperatures or pollution. Naturally, the hair fiber contains oils inside that give it flexibility and strength. Over time these oils are lost. Argan oil allows us to replenish these reserves and restore the hair's texture, flexibility and shine. 

Featured properties 

One of the main properties of argan oil is that it’s an excellent antioxidant. Its high content of vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids make it one of our best anti-aging allies. In addition, argan oil also contains lupeol, a compound that provides the hair with deep hydration to improve the condition of dry or damaged hair. 

But argan oil has even more properties and benefits. For example, it can help strengthen hair and reduce breakages by improving elasticity.  

Benefits of Argan Oil 

The benefits of argan oil on hair are multiple, acting both on the hair fiber and on the scalp.  

  • Moisturizes and nourishes the hair. 
  • Soothes irritated scalps and has an anti-inflammatory effect. 
  • Repairs split ends. 
  • Provides shine and softness. 
  • Helps prevent dandruff outbreaks. 
  • Has an antioxidant action. 

Where can you find argan oil? 

Argan oil’s multiple properties make it an invaluable ingredient in many cosmetic treatments for skin and hair. Among the cosmetic products that often include argan oil in their formulas are body oils, moisturizers, shampoos and hair masks, to name a few. By using these products, you can enjoy all the benefits of argan oil in a concentrated and effective manner. 

How Argan Oil Is Used 

To make the most of all the properties offered by argan oil, look for cosmetic products that include it in their composition. The cosmetics industry has focused on creating treatments that combine different ingredients, with the aim of enhancing their individual action and achieving even more effective products. That is, by combining argan oil with other moisturizing, repairing or revitalizing ingredients, more complete treatments can be obtained that provide even better results.
