Liquid gold of Morocco is undoubtedly one of the best natural oils recommended for hair care. The enormous amount of vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids and other antioxidants in one drop, provides amazing effects on our hair. Take a look at our brief tutorial on how argan oil works and how to use it to make the best of it.
Argan oil is a valuable source of nutrients, and comprehensively supports all kinds of hair – strengthens, moisturises, regenerates, nourishes, softens, adds shine and dramatically improves the condition of hair. however, when using argan oil, it is important to remember two essential rules.
First of all, be cautious with the dosage. Argan oil is an efficient oil, therefore even a small drop will make wonders.
In addition, considering the rather high price of this oil, it is better to save it.
Secondly, apply it to dry hair, prior to washing. Thank to this, you will achieve much better effects. However, in the case of high porosity hair, applying on wet hair will bring more satisfying results.
Boosting hair growth mask.

You will need 2 tablespoons of argan oil (restoration) 1 tablespoon of castor oil (strengthening), 1 egg yolk (adds shine), 1 tablespoon of natural yoghurt (hydrating). Apply the mask with your fingertips, gently massaging the scalp. Do not forget to distribute it on the rest of the hair as well. Secure it with a towel and leave for about thirty minutes.

Serum for damaged ends.

Coconut oil is cheaper but only the refined in the store. The one for hair has different price, then again argan oil you can get cheaper online. I wouldn’t go for replacements cause coconut can cost you frizzy hair (argan does not)…
