Natural argan oil for hair is a valuable find for every hair. Healing effects are achieved through a balanced content of nutrients in the oil. Yes, for as much as 80% it consists of linoleic, palm, oleic and other saturated fatty acids, which are not for nothing called irreplaceable beauty aides. And to protect the skin from the aging process, as well as actively support its protective functions, alpha-tocopherol, or vitamin, which "is found" all in the same oil, will help.
- triglycerines (their merit - soothe and soften the skin, restoring its lipid metabolism),
- sterols (which also actively take care of the scalp, namely: improve the microcirculation of substances, have anti-inflammatory effect, inhibit aging, protect the skin from ultraviolet radiation and much more),
- phenolic compounds (known antioxidants),
- alpha-spinasterol, as well as chotenol (stimulate the regeneration of skin cells, which is why argan oil can often be found in the rejuvenating cosmetics),
- Triterpenic alcohols (which actively protect the skin from various inflammations caused by fungi, infections and viruses).
In general, the main useful properties of this product will "taste" not only the hair, but also the skin, because argan oil intensively nourishes, protects, and rejuvenates it.
But back to our locks. Argan oil protects them from external aggressions such as changes in humidity, ultraviolet, too low, or vice versa - excessively high temperatures, as well as unfavorable substances that can get to the hair from air or water, and from cosmetics. Together with the protection, oil restores the structure of the hair, nourishes and moisturizes it.
With the regular application of this natural cosmetic you can say goodbye once and for all with dandruff, slow down the aging of hairs, accelerate their growth and make even the most "harmful" hair thicker and more obedient.
How to use oil? The easiest way is to rub it into the hair and the skin underneath. For one application, a small amount of oil is taken, distributed in the palms of the hands and rubbed with neat, massage movements - first into the skin and then into the curls. Now you need to arrange hair curative "bathhouse": hide them under a bag or a plastic cap, wrapped with a towel (a large scarf or winter hat will do). With this "headdress" you need to pass at least an hour, although ideally - leave it for the night. The final chord: wash the oil with shampoo, in a few tricks.
This oil can be used instead of balm . To do this, the hair should be washed, apply a couple of drops of oil on top of them - but do not apply to the skin, it's important! Now the hair can be dried and laid, without washing off the argan "balm".
Of course, at home you can use one hundred percent oil, and add it to your favorite natural masks . You can just add a couple drops of oil in shampoo or balm. Such means will nourish, strengthen and restore hair well. This method is much more economical than regular application of pure oil to the hair, because it is quite expensive.
Here such masks from simple products can be enriched with argan oil. They will suit all cases.
