I like the way I look and when I compare myself to other women of a similar age, I’m not doing too badly. In fact I feel lucky. But I have real problems with my hair, not only is it very baby fine but I suffer with a greasy scalp and therefore have to wash it on a daily basis. I’ve been all over the place trying to find a solution to my bad hair days buying numerous products at the chemist and supermarket. Making pleas to my hairdresser on what the best recommendation he can give me – product wise for my hair. Unfortunately, Joey (that’s my hairdresser) and I have used just about every product known to human kind under the sun.
I shudder to think just how much money has changed hands over the years in order for me to have the smart, shiny hair that I crave. Joey shudders too when he thinks about how much he’s charged me or the copious amounts of money that I’ve spent at the chemists.
My Quest to Find the Big Answer
Still on my quest to find the big answer, it was just recently that a good friend of mine suggested that I try Moroccan Argan oil. Well, I thought that you could only use this type of product in cooking, however, I was wrong. There is a more refined Argan oil which exists. It has no additives and no preservatives and does not even have an odour as it has been deodorised. This kind of Argan oil replaces moisture and replenishes and restores coloured, poor conditioned hair to its former glory. The main benefit for me is that it conditions my greasy, flaky scalp. I just love it! My hair is so glossy and sleek to look at; as well as being silky soft to touch. Argan oil in its purest form does all that for me and I could not be happier. I’m so pleased with the benefits of Argan oil that I have passed this gem of knowledge on to my hairdresser, Joey, he’s using it in the salon now and everyone is raving about it.
Argan Oil Works for All Hair Types
Not only is it working for me with my greasy, baby fine hair. It is working for women who have punished their locks with peroxide. Women like my friend Julie who changes her hair colour at least once a month. Janey my friend with the hair extensions, post having them removed. Paula and her curtain like, thick hair, which frizzes, in the hot humid weather. Paula is frizzy no more all because of pure Moroccan Argan oil. My friend Maddy has tight afro hair, she looks so beautiful she can braid her hair in a weaved style or leave it loose and she is currently sporting a long afro ‘Jackson’ style from the 70’s. She uses Argan oil before and after shampooing and swears that it does the trick keeping her hair in fabulous condition. Her hair is very glossy and soft to touch.
Joey takes great delight in conditioning his client’s tresses by caressing it with pure Argan oil. He’s now telling everyone who will listen about the benefits of it and let’s face it he’s in the prime position to demonstrate just what pure Argan oil can do. Not one client he’s helped with using this superb oil as a conditioner has complained or been dissatisfied with the results.
Probably the question you will now be asking is how much Argan oil do you need to apply and how often? Depending on your own personal preference if you wanted to you could use it every night. Dropping a few drops on to your palms and massaging it into your scalp before bed time, then leaving it on all night. Moroccan women are renowned for using Argan oil this way as a matter of habit. You only have to see a woman who uses Moroccan Argan oil regularly to appreciate what Argan oil can do for you. If you apply it before bedtime then when you shower in the morning shampoo it out, no need to apply a topical conditioner unless of course you prefer to. This worked for me in the beginning when I first started to use Argan oil. But now I only need to condition my hair in this way twice a week. My scalp is never itchy or flaky or terribly greasy the way it used to be. Believe me this oil is 100% natural.
I find that I benefit too when my hair has been coloured. I swither between having my hair coloured at the salon or at home. In these austere times a woman has to save money somehow don’t you agree?
Which is another reason why I cannot rate Moroccan Argan oil highly enough. Pound for pound it is not an expensive product. One 100ml bottle goes a long way. I would say that I don’t use more than I need and one bottle lasts me for 3 weeks minimum. I try to buy it in bulk and scan the internet for the best bargains. Mind you not too many places tend to stock the pure stuff. I came across one highly perfumed Argan oil product once and really did not like it. Not only did it fail to leave my hair in great condition but it ponged so much that even the dog ran away when I bent down to pet her.
Facts about Argan Oil
Some facts about Argan oil you might like to know are that it is a nut extract from the Argania Spinosa tree which grows native in Morocco. These nuts are pummelled in order to extract the oil. The oil that I’m talking about is cold pressed and refined so that we can use it for all types of reasons. Mine being hair, but it has been known to help people who suffer with various skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. However, I’m certain that there will be many other articles written on the benefits for skin. Today we’re talking hair.
So for all of you who may want to keep your hair and scalp in tip-top condition with the one product that nourishes your crowning glory, there is no choice, it’s a given; pure Moroccan oil. The answer to not just my hair problems; we are easily discovering hundreds of other women’s hair problems have disappeared too.
