Argon oil is one of the most popular beauty ingredients used in cosmetics and hair products today. Here are 10 facts you might not have known about this golden wonder.
Argon oil is high in Vitamin E which allows your hair to be soft and controls the frizz. This overnight hair mask allows all the oils, vitamins and minerals to soak into your hair giving it that shine in the morning. Make sure to wash it out completely in the morning.
Nourishes Dry Skin
The best part about Argon Oil is its ability to lock in moisture in the skin to keep it hydrated. It is also good for eczema and psoriasis due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Add a few drops in the bath or even in your hand and rub it directly onto the skin for immediate benefits. Your skin will soak up the oil and leave your skin feeling rejuvenated and soft.
Lightens Stretch Marks
The Vitamin E contained in argan protects the collagen fibers in your skin which help improve the elasticity of the skin. This oil can be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Please keep in mind that once a stretch mark has become white; there is no more blood flow to that area so Argon Oil will not help.
Promotes Hair Growth
Vitamin E is liquid gold when it comes to hair growth. The vitamin provides nourishment to the hair follicles which can promote hair growth and reduce hair loss. It livens up dull hair as well as removes dandruff. Leave the oil in overnight and wash out with shampoo in the morning. Use this treatment 2-3 times a week.
Natural Hair Conditioner
Argon oil makes your hair soft and silky. The linoleic and Oleic acids support healthy hair cuticles and protect your hair from UV sun exposure. Start with just rubbing a little bit in your hair and avoid adding too much, otherwise you’ll end up looking too greesy.
