You don’t have to buy expensive products for your hair. You probably already have what you need sitting right in your pantry. I know firsthand that natural oils are the best thing you can do for your hair, especially if it’s dry or curly. I’ve used coconut oil all of my life, and I just recently fell in love with Argan Oil. Honestly, it’s rare that I find a product that does the trick by giving my hair the moisture that it needs. My hair sucks it up like a plant that hasn’t been fed water in days!

Whats so great about Argan oil?

It provides basic nourishment for health and strength, argan oil acts as a protective shield to prevent your hair from all kinds of damage caused by the sun, hot tools, and just life in general. Using argan oil once a week may help you avoid the outer layer known as the cuticle from getting damaged and fraying.

Its what I am currently using. It helps keep my hair hydrated and controls a lot of the fly-aways. My hair absorbs the oil really well, so it never looks greasy. It’s works wonders on my ends, I can’t recommend Argan oil enough if you want shiny and lustrous hair. This question below has been asked by so many ladies. Lets look into it.

Is hair oil good for hair extensions?

The answer is a resounding yes!  Hair oil can keep your extensions looking and feeling as good as the day you got them.

However, the answer can also be no!  If hair oil isn't applied properly, your extensions may fall out.  Always exercise extreme caution when using hair oil. 

What can adding a hair oil do for you?

1. Prevents Damage/ Stops Damage:

Hair oil helps prevent damage in the first place.  The leading cause of hair damage is from thermal damage aka your molten hot lava flat iron. Applying a small amount of hair oil before hot tools will help prevent thermal damage.

If your hair is already damaged, hair oil fills in the holes in your hair created by damage to the cuticle of your hair.  This helps the cuticle layer lay flat, so it looks healthy again.

2. Increases Shine and Attractiveness: 

Hair styling and excessive use of chemical hair products can lead to split ends and make your hair appear dull, rough and unevenly distributed.  Regular use of a hair oil can give a healthy, shiny, and nourished look to your mane.  By nourishing your hair through regular oiling, you can rejuvenate shine and silkiness, and prevent split ends.

3. Strengthens the Hair Protein

Natural oils secreted by the sebaceous glands under the scalp infuse protein into the hair shaft.  Hair oils such as argan oil, almond oil, castor oil, and olive oil will help supplement and restore the original strength of protein that is instrumental in improving the quality of hair.  Additionally, it helps to reduce frizz and fragility.
