argan oil has exceptional cosmetic properties. Its concentration of fatty acids and vitamin E makes it a natural ally for hair beauty. An ideal treatment for dense, silky and radiant hair!
1/ What is argan oil?
Argan oil comes from the fruits of the argan tree, a tree that grows mainly in the Souss plain, in southern Morocco.
For centuries, the Berbers have appreciated its food and cosmetic qualities.
Its manufacture is an activity traditionally reserved for women who use ancestral methods to delicately extract the almonds contained in the kernel of the fruits of the argan tree. These “almonds” are then crushed and transformed into a paste which, mixed with lukewarm water, makes it possible to obtain argan oil.
Fleurance Nature organic cosmetic argan oil is cold extracted, unrefined, undeodorized and unscented in order to preserve its many properties.
2 / The benefits of argan oil for hair
Naturally rich in fatty acids (omega 6 and 9), as well as in vitamin E, argan oil has properties recognized for:
Moisturize the hair and strengthen it against external aggressions.
The hair is subjected to multiple external aggressions, such as prolonged exposure to the sun, cold, bad weather, salt and chlorine with swimming in the sea and in the swimming pool, frequent in summer... These factors can weaken the hair fiber and make hair that is dry, brittle and difficult to comb.
Used as a preventive measure, argan oil protects the hair and strengthens its resistance by sheathing it and preventing breakage. This treatment is particularly recommended for naturally dry and brittle hair that requires more intense hydration.
After exposure to the sun, argan oil restores vigor to the hair and repairs split ends, especially for long hair.
Nourish hair deeply from tip to root
Argan oil makes them softer, silkier and easier to style.
It also makes it possible to regenerate the hair fiber, damaged by common practices, sometimes unsuitable, such as drying the hair at too high a temperature, the use of straightening or curling irons, coloring, the use of aggressive shampoos , too energetic brushing, too tight hairstyles…
Restore suppleness, shine and volume to dull and tired hair
Improve hair growth
A gentle scalp massage using argan oil helps improve hair growth by stimulating keratin production. These hair proteins are essential to ensure the resistance and elasticity of the hair.
Can argan oil be used on oily hair?
For oily hair, it is preferable to use jojoba oil whose chemical characteristics are similar to those of human sebum.
Jojoba oil can be used as a nourishing and softening treatment. It is also recommended to use a specific shampoo acting on the production of sebum and without silicone which weighs down the hair.
3/ How to use argan oil for hair, body, skin, hair, hair?
Due to its many virtues, argan oil can be perfectly integrated into your hair routine at different times:
Before the shampoo
To repair damaged hair or to prevent the appearance of split ends, use argan oil once or twice a week. Apply the oil strand by strand, leave on for ten minutes by wrapping your hair in a towel. Then perform a mild shampoo and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
After the shampoo
To make your hair easier to comb and give it a silky appearance, pour a few drops of argan oil into the palms of your hands. Then, gently comb your damp hair using your fingers.
Dehydrated skin is not necessarily dry: it lacks water, it is a temporary problem, which can affect any type of skin (oily, dry or combination).
Dry skin lacks lipids: its protective film fails to produce enough sebum to maintain its function as a protective barrier. This is not a temporary state: it needs nourishing care that will strengthen this barrier to restore comfort. If so, the skin becomes very dry.
Very dry skin feels tight, itchy, peeling, cracks may appear. It then becomes essential to hydrate it with products rich in active ingredients.
Prefer certified organic shampoos without aggressive surfactants , which preserve the hydrolipidic film of the scalp.
To intensely and deeply nourish your hair, apply argan oil as a mask from the scalp to the tips of the hair, working strand by strand. Wrap your head in a warm towel and let sit for at least 1 hour, ideally overnight. Then wash your hair carefully with lukewarm water using a mild shampoo. Repeat this ritual once or twice a month as a maintenance routine.
