The argan tree (Argania spinosa), native to Morocco, provides a beauty product often termed “liquid gold.” The argan tree produces a fruit that turns a golden color in the summer before it falls from the tree. Inside the fruit is a pit and inside the pit is a kernel. Argan oil is extracted from that kernel. It’s not an easy process but the end product are the rich argan oil benefits for hair.
Argan Oil Benefits for Hair
Argan oil contains tocopherols or vitamin E, which works as an antioxidant that can help protect cells from free radical damage and may even promote cell growth. The vitamin E found in argan oil also has the ability to help moisturize your scalp, promoting healthier hair follicles. The top benefits of argan oil for your hair include:
- Helps repair split ends
- Tames frizz
- Increases manageability
- Adds shine and softness
Repair Split Ends
Heat styling, color treatments, and environmental conditions can damage your hair over time. Repair that damage and treat split ends with an argan oil styling product like ion’s I-PAK Argan Infusion Refill when used with the iFusion Iron or Repairing Oil Treatment. The latter uses a blend of both argan and babassu oils to help repair damage and breakage using a lightweight formula that’s 100-percent vegan and paraben-free.
All hair types can suffer frizz, but it’s an exceptionally common issue for anyone with wavy, curly or coily hair. As soon as those humidity levels jump, your hair decides to freak out with a frizz out. Whether your frizz is caused by humidity or other issues, a styling product infused with argan oil can be the solution for taming that frizz. Try a pre-shampoo treatment that contains argan oil for a smoothing effect and opt for an anti-frizz styling brush as a must-have beauty tool.
Stop fighting with your hair every day. Choose styling products that are formulated not only for your hair type but that have ingredients, like argan oil, that work naturally to increase its manageability. When coloring your hair, opt for hair color enriched with argan oil like the ion Color Brilliance Master Colorist Series. It has not only moisturizing argan oil, but pequi oil as well and it’s PPD free. You can have rich color plus manageability in product.
Add Shine and Softness
Coloring and processing, heat styling, exposure to chlorine from pools and spas, environmental effects like smog, and product build-up can strip the shine and softness from your hair. You can cleanse product build-up with a clarifying shampoo and rely on heat protection sprays when using a flat iron, curling iron, or even your hair dryer. However, an argan infusion treatment can help make straw-like hair feel soft again and work to restore its luxurious, natural shine.
Consider adding an argan oil hair product to your styling arsenal today. Argan oil products won’t weigh your hair down and are never greasy, so they’re ideal even if you’re hair is slightly oily. Argan oil also benefits the scalp, moisturizing and keeping dry flakes from forming.
