It’s only November and we’re already beginning to feel the wrath of Winter (well most of us). Not only does Winter bring dry skin, it also gifts us with dry, brittle hair. Yay! Even for those of you in warmer climates, you may want to stick around because we have a treat for you; it’s called Moroccan Oil (or Argan oil, whichever floats your boat). I’m sure many of you have heard of it but are not too sure of the benefits or whether it’s actually worth spending money on. The good news about moroccan oil is that it’s suitable for all hair types. It won’t leave any residue or greasy buildup, and provides a great deal of benefits.
Moisturizes Hair and Reduces Frizz
One of the main benefits of argan oil is its moisturizing powers (yes I said powers). Some find its hydrating benefits comparable to that of coconut oil or olive oil, which are both often recommended for dry hair. Argan oil is especially beneficial for women with naturally dry or coarse hair, color-treated hair, and African-American hair types.
Moroccan oil is an excellent frizz and breakage reducer, making it perfect for women who frequently use flat irons, curling irons, rollers, and blow dryers during their daily hair routine. In fact, many hair stylists recommend using argan oil during the hairstyling process because it makes the hair easier to manage. This can be a great way to reduce heat damage.
Morocaan oil is known to leave the hair looking shiny. Instead of turning to hairspray which can lead to product buildup after frequent use, consider spraying on Moroccan hair oil after you have finished styling your hair. Not only will hair look beautiful and shiny, but it will also feel very soft due to the added moisture!
Offers Healthy Vitamins and UV Ray Protection
Another great benefit of moroccan Oil, is that it offers vitamins and nutrients making hair stronger and healthier. Vitamin E, Vitamin F, and phenols are some of the nutrients which are found in moroccan oil. In addition, moroccan oil offers UV ray protection, making it a great product to pack for beach trips.
