Argan oil is often used as a key ingredient in shampoos because of its ability to restore softness, and give strength and shine to the hair. It is an ideal ingredient to look for in a shampoo for people with dry and brittle hair or hair damaged by chemicals and dyes.
Argan oil as a shampoo
The advantage of using argan oil as an ingredient in shampoo is that you can apply it as a traditional shampoo without adding an extra step in your routine or worrying about using it. It is a good method to ensure strong and nourished hair with an improved appearance every day.
Using argan oil as a hair mask
Although a small amount is enough, a night treatment is a great way to maximize the effects of Argan oil on the hair. A larger amount of argan oil in the form of a mask for the hair can be used so that many nutrients will be absorbed as much as possible. It is a good treatment to use the night before a special event and you want your hair to be soft, smooth and bulky.
This treatment is easy to do at home. Use a quantity of oil for this treatment. Massage your scalp, your hair and hair tips, then wrap your hair in a towel to prevent it from staining your pillow. Let the treatment work overnight (or a few hours), then wash the next morning with your usual shampoo.
Using argan oil as a conditioner
Argan oil is an excellent conditioner without rinsing, which can also extend and intensify its beneficial effects on the hair. It makes an ideal conditioning agent as it makes hair soft and smooth and adds extra shine.
Many rinse-free conditioners are oily or make hair stringy or lumpy. Which is not the case for argan oil. It makes the hair easier to comb and, when used in good quantity, it is easily absorbed and leaves no greasy residue.
Pure argan oil can be used as a beautifully effective, chemical-free, conditioner. All you need is a few drops of pure argan oil to rub on your palms and then use your fingers to gently comb your damp or wring the hair. Be sure to massage the scalp to make it healthier, to encourage hair growth and treat split ends.
Use of argan oil as a styling agent
If you need to make a specific hairstyle, argan oil is an incredible solution. In addition to giving long-term benefits in softness and strength, it gives the hair immediate shine and is a great way to tame frizzy hair.
Unlike many styling agents that can cause long-term hair damage due to chemical ingredients, argan oil enriches the hair with nutrients and repairs the damage. It is also an excellent product to use before straightening as it can help protect hair from heat damage.
