How to Use Argan Oil
Hair Loss? Baldness? Receding hairline? Don’t worry. You are not the only ones suffering from these problems. It is estimated that about 80% of us have hair loss problems. Hair loss is said to be caused by many reasons which include our genes, our lifestyle or even the hair products that we use.
It seems that argan oil helps solving this issue. It is called a miracle oil and comes from Morocco. Yes you already knew it, Argan Oil. This is extracted from the nuts in the fruits of the Argan tree.
Why are they so effective in reducing hair loss and stimulating hair growth?
This oil is rich in Vitamins E, C and A. It also contains a good amount of Omega-6 fatty acids, antioxidants and linoleic acid. External application of this oil improves cell production that outcomes in healthier hair and skin. This oil is one of the main ingredients in a lot of skin care products.
How can we ensure that we are buying the pure oil?
First of all when you buy argan oil there should be 100% Argan oil and nothing else mixed in it. It should come without water, preservatives or fragrances.
Argan oil should be stored in bottles that won’t allow light because light destroys its effective properties. You should buy this oil in dark colored bottles, or bottles protected against sunlight. We also advice to buy argan oil only in glass bottles and not in plastic/pet bottles.
The oil should have a nutty aroma which will disappear after a few moments. It should also have a smooth and silky texture.
How do we use this oil to get its full benefit?
You should apply the oil at night and leave it there. Take the oil and massage it into your hair for about 2-3 minutes and leave it there. If you are using this in combination with other medication like ‘minoxidil’ treatment, you can apply that also after about 5 minutes. You can leave both these in your hair for the night.
If you are using ketoconazole as a treatment for your hair you could use Argan Oil along with it. Ketoconazole dries your hair. Argan Oil will help moisturize it.
There are other ways of using Argan Oil in combination with other ingredients.
Shampoos having Argan Oil are very effective in combating dry, brittle or damaged hair. The shampoo can be applied like any normal shampoo. It will leave your hair soft and shiny.
Argan Oil and Coconut Oil also make a great combination. Concentrate on the lower half of the hair while applying and then comb the hair to spread it. You can wash it off in the morning.
Argan Oil is available in many forms on the market. It is available as an ingredient in many shampoos, hair oils, and other hair care products.
There is no doubt that Argan Oil is a benefit for all those with hair loss problems. Use it and flourish those healthy glowing locks.
