Summer means spending time at the beach, in the pool and under the sun. All this exposure can lead to frizzy hair, dryness and skin irritation. Argan oil is a one-stop shop to smooth away summer frizz and ease skin problems. Everything you need to look great is in one carefree bottle. Assuming it’s truly argan oil, with no icky additives. Mmmhmmmm.
Argan oil is made from the nuts of argan trees, which grow almost exclusively in exotic Morocco. The oil is high in fatty acids and Vitamin E. Using a little bit of this oil on your hair and skin goes a long way when it comes to natural good looks. However, beware of sneaky substances often in your argan oil. Synthetic fragrance, dimethicone and other chemical additives are often there to make this product cheaper and less pricey. We feel Argan oil is worth every penny particularly when it’s pure and certified organic.
So why do you need this precious oil? Humidity and a lack of moisture make hair frizzy and hard to manage. Argan oil is light so it doesn’t weigh your hair down or make it greasy. Rub a dime-sized amount between the palms of your hands and stroke it through your hair using your fingertips. It can be applied to freshly washed hair before styling or on dry hair to calm the frizz. It really tames a wild mane! Trust me I know! Apply it sparingly to damp hair or just the ends when you first get started to see how much you may need.
Get rid of fussy bottles, lotions and potions because the same oil can be used on your skin. Argan oil has age-defying and restorative effects. It helps combat conditions such as dryness, wrinkles, acne, eczema and psoriasis. This faint nutty smelling oil also has phytosterols and vitamin E that are good for scar tissue and minimizing flaws. We love the convenience of having everything we need in one product.
Going beyond beauty, using argan oil supports women’s rights. Care2 reveals Berber women are responsible for harvesting these nuts and producing the oil in fair trade working cooperatives. Women can work half days, tend to their families and still earn fair wages in decent working conditions. Using a beauty serum that contains other ingredients along with argan oil is good for you and other women, too! We think there is nothing better than being beautiful and socially conscious at the same time.
