How to use your Authentic Argan Oil effectively

Authentic Argan Oil is a fine cold pressed oil, which absorbs quickly and easily through the skin and does not leave an oily residue. Argan oil can be used all over the body but is especially effective on your hair, face, décolletage, underarms, nails and heels.

Below, we describe some of the best methods of using argan oil. These simple techniques will help you get the most from your argan oil and have you looking and feeling your best.

Before using argan oil on any area of the body, always exfoliate and remember argan oil is best used on its own.

How to use argan oil on your hair

Because of the high levels of Vitamin E found in argan oil, it repairs hair, prevents dandruff and promotes the growth of strong, shiny hair. Vitamin E also promotes cell growth and repair.

Daily use

Argan oil can be used daily by applying a small amount to the palms of your hands, rubbing your hands together then working the oil through the ends of your hair. This will maintain moisture and give your hair beautiful volume.

Overnight treatment

For intensive moisture restoration, apply argan oil to your scalp and massage it in gently. Work your way from the roots to tips and split ends then comb it through. Put a towel over your pillow to protect it then wash the oil out in the morning. This is an easy way to restore moisture to your hair, and can be repeated as often as necessary.

Heat protectant

Due to its high smoke point, argan oil works as a chemical-free heat protectant. Just use a few drops before you use your dryer, straightener or curling tongs. Do not use high heat.

Hairdressers can use argan oil in the salon as a treatment by applying the oil all over the client’s hair and massaging it into the scalp then placing the client under the steamer.

How to use argan oil on your face

Argan Oil is a great moisturiser and anti-ageing product for your skin, with the added benefits that it doesn't clog pores or make you feel greasy.

Apply the Argan Oil to your skin (on your face, neck and décolletage) every day after washing and exfoliating. Because other products may interfere with your skin's absorption of the oil it's best to use it as a stand alone product.

Argan Oil can be used as a total body moisturiser. Either rub it directly onto your skin (always remember to exfoliate first) or add a few drops to your bath when you get in.

Using Argan Oil on cracked skin

Another great benefit of Argan Oil is that it can repair dry, cracked and damaged skin. One of the most common areas to do this is on your feet (especially the heels).

For areas like this, simply massage a few drops of the oil directly onto the affected areas on a daily basis. You should start to notice benefits quickly, and within a couple of months your skin will show huge improvements.

How to use argan oil on your nails

Just as argan oil has benefits for your hair and scalp, it can also strengthen your nails. Simply spread a few drops of oil over your nails and rub the area (including the skin around the nails) for a couple of minutes, repeating on a daily basis. Before long your nails will look healthy, break less often and be less brittle.

As a beauty product pure Argan Oil is one of the most effective and versatile available, and it's one that has a proven track record with centuries of use by Berber communities.
