http://www.healthyhairplus.com/nouris... Argan oil has become one of the most successful, effective and widely used styling aids for hair available...and for good reason!
Naturally derived from the Argan plant native to Morocco, Argan oil mimics the natural oils of the scalp and hair and is famous for adding, shine, smoothness and significantly reducing drying times.
This makes it an excellent oil for reducing frizz, protecting from heat and humidity damage, and for adding control to hard to manage hairstyles. It can be used alone or mixed with your favorite shampoo or conditioner -- making it perfect for adding shine to hair that has been dulled by chemical treatments or coloring and for improving smoothness lost due to excessive heat or loss of hydration.
Commonly referred to as Moroccan oil, Argan Oil by Nourish® is ideal for dull, frizzy or weak hair. It is created from the nut of the Argan tree which is native to Morocco. It is an extremely popular hair product for its ability to naturally reduce dryness, frizz and breaking, to increase shine and sheen and to decrease heat damage from hair dryers and flat irons.
Key benefits of Argan Oil
• Detangles, moisturizes and reduces split-ends and damage
• Increases shine and smoothness
• Reduces drying time by as much as 35%!
• Improves moisture content and helps block frizziness and tearing
• Excellent for all hair types -- especially types with chronic dryness or prone to breaking
• Helps preserve hair color
• Revitalizes life and bounce lost due to chemical and color treatments
With Omega-3 and Omega-9 fatty acids and a high vitamin E content it is absorbed by the connective tissue and follicles. It keeps hair smooth, elastic and shiny. Hair that is usually unmanageable because of curls become smooth and tame. Because the oil is not heavy and oily-like, it is a wonderful product to use on hair and skin alike leaving no greasy or oily residue.
In just minutes your hair will become shiny, soft and smooth while the natural vitamins help make your hair stronger and nourish it down to each protein. It goes on easily and a little goes a long way. It is great if you use heat treatments; it will help repair the damage due to thermal tools and help protect damage by flat irons, blow dryers and curling irons by reducing drying time and helping make the follicle shaft smoother to resist snagging and breaking.
All Moroccan Argan Oil is hand ground to extract the oils. Argan oil hair products are basically oleic and Linoleic acid which is rich in Vitamin E, phenols and carotenes, which means it is high in essential fatty acids which your hair craves. Argan oil also reduces sebum production which is great if you have oily scalp or hair.
Argan Oil Is Great For Sensitive Skin and Scalp
Since Argan Oil is not oily, you can use it on your skin even if you are prone to acne. It has properties to prevent plugs of sebum from clogging your pores, thereby making it ideal to use if you have had a problem with acne, bumps, rash or common scalp problems such as psoriasis or dermatitis.
Hydration, Shine, Moisture & Nutrients
Argan Oil is well known for adding moisture, but it's most popular use is improving shine and smoothness. It works well for decreasing drying time if you use a hair dryer or flat iron. It can also be used alone or combined with a shampoo or conditioner.
Argan oil, with its wealth of Vitamin E, can be very beneficial in treating damaged hair. Vitamin E is one of the antioxidants that will protect the body from all kinds of damage. Antioxidants neutralize free-radicals before they can do much damage by producing enzymes that will expedite a natural chemical reaction.
It will give your hair a pure shine, free of the heaviness of some other oils that will attract dust particles onto your hair. It is quickly absorbed into the hair shaft and produces a restorative function - helping repair split-ends, frizz, breaking and tearing. It strengthens and nurtures fragile roots. With fatty acids combined with tocopherol and phytosterols, it reduces the scaly appearance of dry hair that causes frizz. It makes the hair shafts smooth and beautiful which contributes heavily to the glamorous look of shiny hair.
How Is It Used?
Despite the oil's exotic origin and introduction, it is quite easy to apply to your hair. Just rub a few drops into your palm and then rub it into your hair and scalp. Massage your scalp as you rub it all over your hair. Argan oil can be used like a hot oil treatment but with a much smaller amount.
Heat it up just enough to make it nice and warm, then massage the oil into your hair and scalp with your fingertips. Leave it in your hair while you sleep. Then, in when you get up the next morning, wash your hair as usual. It is enough to do this just once a month. You can also use it between washing your hair to give your hair shine or to take away a little frizz.
