Oh How I Love Thee, Let Me Count The Ways…..7 Benefits of Argan Oil

As a child, I was plagued with psoriasis of the scalp.  There would be these thick scaly patches of dry, itchy, flaky scalp throughout my head.  One particular section of my head was worse than other parts and the hair had completely fallen out in that spot.  My mom had to take extra special care of my hair and made sure that my hair was always shampooed, deep conditioned, moisturized and medicated.  Back in those days a deep condition was an egg and mayonnaise, and moisturizing consisted of greasing my scalp with bergamot (Blue Magic to be specific) and Sulfur 8.    

Times have definitely changed and now natural oils such as argan, coconut, jojoba, and almond to name a few are essential in healthy hair regimens.  For me personally, argan oil works so well on my super sensitive scalp.  It helps me to maintain healthy hair and control the damage done from my scalp psoriasis.  The benefits of argan oil are amazing and if you continue reading, you will find out why.      

Argan oil is native to Morocco and comes directly from kernels of the fruit grown from argan trees.  This oil is so beneficial in numerous ways.  Argan oil is a very healthy fat and is a rich source of vitamin E which is a necessity for healthy hair.  The majority of argan oil’s fat content contains vital nutrients perfect for dry distressed hair.  The fat content provides the much needed moisture to hydrate and reduce hair damage.    

Here are the benefits of using argan oil for your hair and scalp:

    • Hydrates and softens
    • Increases hair elasticity
    • Prevents breakage
    • Protects hair from stress of heated styling tools
    • Increases shine
    • Keeps scalp infections away
    • Promotes hair growth

These are all reasons we chose to use argan oil as the base of our hair growth elixir.  We hope you find it as satisfying on your scalp as we do.  Check back again next month for the next installment from my hair dairy.
