Argan Oil

November 03, 2015


I was feeling my fro the other day! It was big, it was fluffy, it was soft and I loved it! It was a super windy day, so I was worried about wearing my fro out, but it really kept its moisture, which made me a very happy girl. My hair gets super duper thirsty in the fall and winter months, so this was a miracle. I was outside most of the day and praises to the highest, my fro retained its moisture. As the weather changes it can be difficult to retain moisture, but I have been moisturizing with argan oil. It worked wonders on my fro.

What is Argan Oil?

Argan oil is from Morocco and is from the kernels of argan trees. It can be a bit pricey because it is very rare and cannot be grown in any other climate, outside of Morocco. Also, it takes a very long time to produce Moroccan oil. Most of the world's argan oil are produced by women, which is a very labor intensive process.  But most of these women are able to provide for their families. Thanks to the success of argan co-operatives, which are owned and operated by women.


Argan oil reduces frizz, moisturizes and softens hair. If your hair is thin, this might be a heavy oil to use. A little goes a long way. The pictures above are one hour after I applied the product and the picture below is about five hours after. My hair was still shiny and if you could touch my hair, you would be able to feel how soft it was :)))

Argan oil can be used on your face and skin, too. There are some multi-purpose brands. You can pretty much drench your entire body in Moroccan oil if you want to. You will be soft as a baby's bottom :))

Cost

The Moroccan Oil brand is one the best (in my opinion), but it costs $43 dollars for about 4.2 ounces!! Thank God I have a bottle, that was a gift from a good friend. I ration every single drop because it is that good! Also, if you are super into name brand, then purchase a smaller bottle for about $12. There are cheaper alternatives from iherb.com, amazon.com or your local drug store, so don't feel pressured to buy this specific product. I recommend doing some research and then finding one that is within your budget.

Products









What Hair Types Does it Work For?

The above are products, that I've used before. All different price ranges. When I had a straight hair (perm), I loved using argan oil. Argan oil works well for straight hair, curly hair and natural hair, but like I said, less is more. Especially if your hair is thin and fine. So don't feel like because you don't have a fro you cannot use Argan oil. Depending how deep you pockets are, you should be able to try one of these products. The Nature Republic is a brand is actually a face oil. I usually use it on my face, body and hair. The smell is great, too.
