All About Argan Oil: Why You Need It in Your Hair Now

You may have heard that argan oil is great for skin. But did you know it also provides major beauty benefits for hair? Packed with nutrients and scalp-soothing properties, argan oil makes hair softer, smoother, shinier and more manageable.

Here's how and which argan-infused products you need to get into your hair now!

Strand Strengthener

Extracted from the kernels of the Moroccan argan tree, argan oil is a natural volumizer. It boosts cell growth and increases cell turnover, making hair stronger, thicker and full of body.

Scalp Soother

If you struggle with a dry, itchy scalp, argan oil can help. Its hydrating properties destroy dandruff and pump moisture back into the scalp, erasing white flakes and calming itch.

Deep Conditioner

Because argan oil is so moisture-rich, it makes for an excellent conditioner and frizz fighter. It also absorbs easily, so it doesn’t weigh hair down or leave it feeling greasy.

Frizz Fighter

The wonderful thing about argan oil is that it styles hair naturally, enhancing shine, taming frizz and improving manageability without the aid of harsh chemicals. This is particularly important if your mane is on the mend from excessive heat styling or coloring treatments.
