You don’t have to stick to one type of product to experience the goodness that argan oil provides. Luckily, it can found in several haircare products and be used in different ways.
As a conditioner:
“It is extremely rich in tocopherols (vitamin E), essential fatty acids, and antioxidants, which helps to nourish and detangle hair,” says Hughes.
“Argan oil is rich in nutrients and vitamins such as vitamins A, C, and E; antioxidants; linoleic acid; and omega-6 fatty acids, so it’s a great ingredient for a conditioner. The combination of all these super-nourishing ingredients leaves the hair strands softer, shinier, more manageable, and helps tame frizz,” says Fitzsimons.
As a heat protectant spray:
“The health of my clients’ hair is everything; I have to really make sure their hair is in peak condition, so I look for ingredients like silk proteins to make sure the hair is as protected as possible while I’m using hot tools,” says Fitzsimons. “I like argan oil as an ingredient in heat protection products because it’s very nourishing and conditioning for the hair, and it provides great slip that makes styling easier.”
As a hair mask:
“Argan oil is amazing in hair masks, particularly if you have damaged hair. The vitamin E in the oil helps smooth frayed hair shafts and seal split ends while the omega fatty acids work to strengthen your hair, so leaving on for 15 to 30 minutes as a mask is a fantastic way to reap the benefits of argan oil,” he says.
As a hair oil:
“High-quality oil-infused products are essential to maintaining shiny, healthy hair because hair oils are made to penetrate into your strands, as opposed to serums, which usually sit on the surface of the strands,” says Hughes.
As a styling product:
“Argan oil provides excellent shine to the strands and has major anti-frizz benefits,” says Fitzsimons. “For curly girls, it can be used to help really define the curls.”
As a scalp treatment:
“Because argan oil is rich in antioxidants, it can be an effective scalp treatment,” says he says. “It can help reduce the scalp inflammation that leads to dandruff, itchiness, and other scalp issues.”
As a moisturizer:
You can use argan oil to moisturize your face and body, too. It’s great for dry cuticles or your face when it’s lacking a glow.
