Have You Heard Of Argan Oil?

Recommended Posts

Have you heard of Argan Oil?  I just got some and it is awesome!  Essence Of Argan has the purest, best oil I could find - they import directly from Morocco - which in turn benefits the all woman Berber tribe that harvests the oil.  Check it out.

I use the Moroccan oil everyday just got it recently am in love with it, I think they would be very similar. I need it as I have long hair and can't comb through it well otherwise. They are expensive but a little goes a long way. It's like a serum so you only use a pea size amount and my bottle lasts at least a year if not longer!! I used to use serums allot and this stuff is way way better!!:)

I love Argan oil!  I use it to keep my hair looking smooth and soft.   However a little goes a long way, I learned that the hard way by using a tad too much and ended up looking like an oil slick all day!

Argan Oil is a wonderful moisturizer and anti-aging productthat is getting popular with each passing day. It has a high concentration of vitamin E, essential fatty acids, sterols and squalene that helps with skin elasticity. Great for hair as it is a non greasy oil. It makes your hair and skin feels like silk. It also makes your skin glow. You can use it straight or add a few drops to your favorite lotion, creme, shampoo, conditioner, etc...

I recommend using 100% pure argan oil that is fresh with no additives, preservatives or fragrance. Many products like the brand Moroccan Oil, organix only contain 4 to 5% argan oil

My favorite brand is Mogador Argan Oil, it is 100% pure, certified organic and is a fair trade product. Their bottle comes with instructions on the label and I do find that to be very helpful. It is moderately priced and I have a 2 oz bottle for 3 months now and it is still half full!

Mogador Argan Oil is available at http:www.CertifiedArganOil.com. Try it and you will love it!

Agreed... pure argan oil is the way to go.  I use www.essenceofargan.com whihch is great - but i go through a 1oz bottle in about 2 weeks.  I apply everywhere - and use on my hair.  I apply it everywhere and really love it.  I had no idea so many people knew about this product... apparently it has been around for centuries.

I LOVE the stuff- Sallys sells a line called One and Only that contains it.  I even got a flat iron infused with it that is so much better than my Chi! My daughter is biracial and it works miracles on her very dry and brittle hair.

Argan oil is great! I absolutely love it! I use it on my skin and hair and sometime substitute olive oil in my cooking recipes with it.

 

Did you know that The Argan oil is rich in vitamin E (620 mg / kg for Argan oil compared to 320 mg / kg for Olive oil) which is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant that captures free radicals and neutralizes destructive oxidation.


Some Argan oil medical properties:
 

  • Anti-oxidant (phenolic compounds)
  • Reduces hyper tension
  • Reduces cholesterol damage
  • Reduces rheumatic an articular pain
  • Stimulates brain capacity
  • Facilitate digestion by increasing the concentration of pepsin in the gastric juice

 

Traditionally in Morocco, Argan oil is used in tajinescouscous, salads, grilled tomatoes and other famous moroccan recipes

I love my Argan Oil. I use the oil from camden-grey.com  It has the scent removed but it's still wonderful stuff. I use it on my face before primer and at night. In my hair after washing. Now that i color my hair i use 2 drops to keep it from drying out.

 

I also love Argan Oil soap from Henna sooq.com  It's fabulous.  Mix argan oil with my Morrocan clay powder and it's wonderful as a mask and cleanser.

 

I can't get enough of it!

I just lovvvve Argan Oil. I bought a huge Josie Maran kit and it came with the big bottle of Argan Oil. I've been using it around my eyes in substitution of eye cream (because I ran out) and it hydrates soooo well. I get dry flakey spots in the inner corners of my eyes and the oil makes them vanish. If I'm treating a big pimple, it can get dry and flakey from the medication, so I dab a little Argan Oil on the area at night and in the morning the dryness is gone.

Have any of you tried Josie Maran's Argan Tinted Moisturizer?

 

I don't know much about argan oil, but I wanted to give tinted moisturizers a try after years of mineral makeup and it just so happened that the first TM I tried was one that included argan oil. I've been using it since the summer but wasn't too pleased at first because I have combo skin and the added oil from the TM filled up blotting sheets in no time. But during the winter this TM replaced my mineral foundation because the essential oils that I complained about during the summer are a godsend for the winter! Not to mention I like that the coverage is pretty good for a tinted moisturizer. But as far as the benefits of argan oil go, I'm not so sure I feel like I've gotten much more out of this than just hydration, which I can get from any TM anyway. Maybe I haven't used it long enough to notice any argan-related changes yet? I've been using it for half a year.... Or maybe my skin just isn't sensitive so I tend to not notice much with ingredients?

 

Would love to hear your thoughts.

I've been using One 'n Only's shampoo and conditioner for over a year now...I have coarse-ish frizzy hair, and with the use of this my hair is much softer and more manageable. I would definitely recommend that you guys try it.

 

 I got the Hair Mask a while ago but never used it. I think I'll try and squeeze in some time this morning and use it.

I currently use Creme of Nature sulfate free shampoo and conditioner with Moraccon Argan oil. Its such a wonderful oil and products that feature it, work amazingly well on every type of hair.

100% pure argan oil is the best thing that ever happened to my skin. I have combo skin that's sensitive to boot and I had these really deep under eye circles. I tried eleventy gajillion eye creams and moistrurizers etc and nothing ever worked quiiiite right (i did get enough moisture from H2O+ creams without breaking out so I owe a lot to them but my circles were totally not interested in going away) but the argan oil applied daily to my face is making my skin super happy even in the dry NY winter plus one drop applied to both under eye areas every day made the circles up and leave! I use it on my hair as a detangler and I've even used it to moisturize my lips. I used to buy Josie Maran's argan oil but yesterday I received a 4 oz wt bottle I ordered from http://www.thesage.com/catalog/FixedOil.html#ArganOil which comes out as orders of magnitude cheaper and it seems real to me. It's marginally paler than Josie Maran's oil but still has a yellow tint to it, it's entirely deodorized and it feels wonderful on the skin. Best stuff ever!

I think this is the same as the main ingredient in Orofluido, which is kind of amazing. I got a sample in my Birchbox and had to buy the fullsized product because it was so amazing.

I absolutely love Argan oil. It is one of the miracles of nature. 

 

I love it for my super length hair, it detangles, adds gloss and helps seal in moisture making hair stronger and less prone to breakage.

 

It is a wonderful ingredient in skin care, or used just by itself as others have pointed out.

 

People need to go back to using plain plant oils for skin and hair care like our predecessors did. Pure oils really are better than many of the synthetic products we now use. They just take a bit more time and effort to use, but the results are usually so much better.

 

My father who had very thick and glossy white hair and very young looking skin even into is 90's swore it was due to his habit of moisturizing with just Olive Oil. I think he had it figured out.
