Argan oil comes from the argan tree located in southwestern Morocco. These trees have been around for centuries (they can live up to 200 years!) and are rich in the argan fruit. The month of July is prime time for the fruit, which falls off the tree once it has ripened. The hard nuts in the center of the fruit contain oil rich seeds from which the argan oil is extracted.
In Europe and North America, argan oil is used mainly for cosmetic purposes, and these days, can easily be found on drugstore shelves. Argan oil contains fatty acids, antioxidants, and Vitamin E, rendering it non-greasy, non-irritating, and easily absorbed by skin and hair. Its versatile uses include smoothing, moisturizing, and revitalizing skin, hair, and nails. Argan Oils many benefits and irresistibly smooth feeling make it a must-have addition to any beauty regime.
When used on hair, Argan Oil helps fight frizz, smoothes and hydrates while deep conditioning damaged hair. This all-natural oil can be used before styling on wet hair or after blow drying for an extra boost of shine.
