Recently, I’ve been hearing women touting the claim of the “miracle” that is argan oil. Argan oil is an oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree, endemic to Morocco, that is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties. The tree, a relict species from the tertiary age, “is extremely well adapted to drought and other environmentally difficult conditions of southwestern Morocco.”
Full of essential fatty acids and vitamin E, this oil does wonderful things for your hair and skin by sealing in moisture and keeping your skin and hair feeling healthy and supple. Even if you could care less what a fatty acid actually is–trust that fatty acids are good for your hair, you should know that this oil work goes way beyond basic. Say it with us – fatty acids are good for the hair! Fat like the fat layers of a Popeye chicken special–good, but that not good for you. Fat on the hair–bueno. Fatty acids make our hair plump and expands it–like lotion to dry skin or collagen to lips. Expansion is good as it means your hair is less likely to experience dryness and is more flexible and less brittle. This also means that your skin says soft and supple.
