Most of us are familiar with argan oil and at the very least know that it’s a key ingredient in many moisturizing products.
It’s been used for centuries as an essential oil in beauty regimens around the world and hailed for its vibrant and hydrating properties. When it comes to using it on hair, there is more than one way to make argan oil work for your strands. Here are some expert-approved ways your hair can benefit from argan oil:UV protection
Though sunscreens for hair is not any kind of popular concept, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t protect your strands from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Applying argan oil to your hair before heading outside for longer time not only helps your hair to stay healthy, but also prevents hair colour from fading away. Apply directly to your strands or use a hair conditioning spray with hair strengthening ingredients like argan oil, coconut milk and coconut oil.
If you have a big event coming up, you can actually use argan oil as a hair mask for a boost of shine and hydration. Use a generous amount of argan oil, massage it well into your scalp, tips and hair, and wrap your hair in a towel to prevent staining. You can keep the argan oil for a few hours or overnight if you prefer. You don’t need to expose your hair to any harsh chemical or products for this look.
Before using a blow dryer or straightener, lather your strands with argan oil. It’s best applied to hair that’s damp to get the most benefits. This helps to prevent the hair from breakage when it’s exposed to high heat.
Split end treatment
Many beauty experts suggest using argan oil on the very ends of your hair to strengthen the cuticle from within and prevent breakage in the form of split ends. Besides, this oil is not heavy, so your hair will not look greasy.
