For as long as I can remember, I’ve been on the hunt for that perfect hair care product. You know the one? Sure, you do. It’s that perfect little addition to your routine that simply makes your hair more manageable, that makes your mornings flow a little more smoothly and gets rid of bad hair days forever. It might come in a bottle or a tube or a jar; but whatever it is, it’s your hair’s little personal savior. After trying numerous creams, gels and sprays, I finally found my own little gem in the form of an oil. And not just any old oil: argan oil, a Moroccan product that is produced from the kernels of argan fruit.
So, What is Argan Oil Really?
I was interested in learning more about this unique product, so I did some research. Argan fruit is a tree fruit that only grows in a few places in the world (like Morocco). Thus, it’s extremely pricey and a rare find. It has multiple uses: what originally started out as a cooking oil soon became used on skin and nails to improve the quality and liveliness of both. Argan oil has even been said to have been used as a treatment for skin conditions like psoriasis. Lately, its improvement of hair quality has been to the oil’s advantage, as argan oil has become quite popular with professionals in the hair industry.
But, Does It Work?
I started using argan oil a few weeks ago, and my attachment to it almost happened by accident. I’ve said it before, but my hair is extremely thick and wavy; and without the help of conditioner, my hair tangles and has killed a few hairbrushes in the past. I need some sort of aid in my attempt to get smooth, sleek hair. I was out of conditioner and had argan oil in my possession. So, I tried it. I dapped a few drops of the oil into my hands and ran them through my hair. My hair became less tangled and smoother almost immediately. After blow-drying it and straightening it, my hair was shiny and frizz-free. I was excited and kept using the oil; and to this day, my hair is smooth and sleek, shiny and easy to manage.
…And the Verdict Is…
From my experience over the past few weeks, argan oil works. It’s done for my hair what no other products have been able to do. My hair is shinier, brighter and frizz-free. I have extremely sensitive skin, and I tend to break out whenever anything touches it, so I wouldn’t use this product on my skin. However, it’s really done wonders for my hair. It may be a pricey product, but argan oil is absolutely worth the cost; so if you ever get your hands on any, I recommend trying it and seeing what it can do for your hair too!
