Pure argan oil is one of the rarest oils in the world and is revered for its rich concentration of vitamins and minerals. The oil contains high levels of tocopherols, powerful antioxidants that are vital for healthy skin and hair. High levels of carotenes, phenolic acid, squalene and phenols also contribute to the oil's cosmetic value. The oil is composed of 42.8% oleic fatty acids and 36.8% linoleic fatty acids, both of which contribute to its healing and moisturizing properties. Argan oil also contains squalenes that help protect collagen and make skin softer. Phenolic compounds found in the oil help protect the skin from harmful free radicals that contaminate skin and leave it dull, lifeless and dry.
what people are saying about argan oil...
As a deep conditioner and overnight hair treatment, argan oil is the amazing. It smells cool and exotic, but doesn't clash with other products when there's just a hint of it in your hair. I already have a pretty intensive deep conditioning routine for my curly hair (including another killer argan oil product, MoroccanOil's Intense Hydrating Mask) so I didn't notice much of a difference in texture or softness when substituting this instead, but if you're looking for an all-natural alternative, this works like a charm.
Frizz Tamer & Shine Enhancer
For everyday styling, my results were decidedly negative. Like a lot of girls with curls, my hair is thick altogether, but the individual strands are fairly fine and delicate. Used as a daily conditioner and/or a styling product, this weighed my hair down way too much, and made it look oily and piece-y in a bad way. If you have thicker, coarser hair, dry hair, or hair that's already on the straight and shiny side, this may work better.
Done. I fell in love with argan oil as a moisturizer. The difference between 2 and 3 drops was the difference between pretty and grease ball, but the difference between 1-2 drops and my previous moisturizer was the difference between normal and GLOWING GODDESS. Even my mother, who has been known to send me pore minimizers after spending a dinner seated across from me (they're not that offensive, I swear) remarked that my skin looked "luminous." I've actually completely stopped using cleanser on my oily, somewhat acne-prone skin and found the "oil balancing" effect is real—I'm not breaking out, I don't have my usual shiny spots, my skin just looks great.
I did this completely wrong the first day and applied the oil to my skin like a normal lotion, which left me feeling a bit slithery and forced me to scramble for an arrangement of dark-colored cotton schmattes that were sort-of presentable to wear to work. Applying it to wet skin in the shower and letting it absorb for a few minutes while Tilexing the walls (whatever, we all have hobbies) then removing the excess while toweling off left my skin soft and moisturized with not very much product at all.
Five days post manicure, I'm still without a single hangnail, and my cuticles look extremely inoffensive. I didn't even really have to do anything to get this benefit; I just rubbed the excess oil from my body application into my cuticles and called it a day. Stretching a manicure an extra three days with no extra effort? Yes please.
Cracked heel treatment
My heels aren't particularly cracked, but I am definitely suffering from the winter boots-to-summer heels transition, with a number of attractive blisters, cuts, and rough spots. A layer of argan oil and a night spent sleeping in socks softened my feet, made residual injuries less obvious, and cleared up dry skin.
