Argan oil is derived from the fruit of Morocco’s Argan tree. It’s a very rich, conditioning oil that does wonders for your hair. Rich in vitamin E, proteins and essential fatty acids, Argan oil is very effective in moisturizing and revitalizing dull and over processed hair. It’s also great for moisturizing your scalp. To apply, just smooth all over damp hair. Also massage your scalp with the oil to heal dry skin then wash after 30 to 40 minutes. It’s non-greasy and absorbs easy. The catch? because Argan oil is rare and is most effective at its purest state, it can be very costly. Some alternatives to try include Deity Super Serum Gro Nutmeg, made with nutmeg and Argan oils.
