One Hair Oil, 3 Uses

We have found the perfect multipurpose oil for your daily use!

Imagine having one oil that serves as a multipurpose oil and covers all your hair requirements. Sounds amazing? That’s exactly what we’ve found for you!

You sure don’t want anything super heavy that will lead to breakouts or that will make your strands look greasy. Having said that, argan oil or the miracle oil has long been touted as a saviour for treating dry and damaged hair, skin and nails, thanks to its conditioning properties. That’s because the oil is rich in antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids, phenols, carotenes and vitamins A, C, and E. Now all of this goodness is available as a multi-utility oil for your hair benefit. Use it for three functions: prewashing, pre-styling (as heat protectant) and post-styling.

Let’s get to how exactly can you use the argan oil

For prewashing: As a hydrating hair mask

An argan oil hair mask is amazing particularly if you have damaged hair. The vitamin E in the oil helps smooth frayed hair shafts and seal split ends while the omega fatty acids work to strengthen your hair. Apply an argan oil hair mask, wear a shower cap and leave it on overnight for deep conditioning.

For pre-styling: As a heat protectant

Argan oil can also be used as a pre-styling oil to protect the hair and scalp from heat damage caused by styling tools. Before blow drying, straightening or curling, apply a couple of drops of argan oil to damp or dry hair and then proceed to styling.

For post-styling: As a shine booster

The oil also tackles frizz and dryness caused by styling heat products. Take a few drops of argan oil and run it through your hair. As an added bonus, using a little more on the ends of your hair to reduce the appearance of split ends and add shine to the strands.

 Benefits of argan oil

  • Creates shine and moisture: Chock full of vitamin E and fatty acids, argan oil moisturises your hair without ever making it look greasy. It is a deep-conditioning moisturiser that infuses each strand with healthy oils and prevents moisture from escaping. This gives your hair the head-turning shine and moisture that you’ve always wanted.
  • Reduces frizz: Argan oil works excellently on reducing frizz in your hair. It creates a protective sheath around the hair shaft and lends a glossy finish. This means no more frizz and split ends.
  • Promotes healthy hair growth: The phenols in argan oil support and strengthen hair follicles while the vitamins promote healthy skin and scalp. The oil not only promotes hair growth, but it also helps you to get thicker, healthier hair.
  • Soothes an itchy scalp: It acts as an anti-inflammatory for people suffering from flakes and dandruff. The trick is to gently massage the oil on the scalp to stimulate blood circulation and leave it overnight.
