Moroccanoil is Argan Oil for Hair!
Argan Oil seems to be getting more and more positive press on its miraculous powers lately. Argan oil isn’t new but because of its high restorative and age-defying effects, the law of supply and demand are giving rise to more argan oil product on our shelves.
Moroccanoil is a hair product, made with argan oil that got quick acclaim as celebrity hairdressers proclaimed it’s glories on red carpet styles like Salma Hayek at the Golden Globes last year and January Jones at this years Golden Globes.
Argan oil is made from the nuts of the argan tree, which grows almost exclusively in Morocco. The oil is said to have restorative as well as age-defying effects! It is high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, it is believed to help all sorts of skin conditions from eczema to wrinkles.7
This pure argan oil, which was reviewed in Glamour magazine in August 09′, is not cheap at $87.00 plus shipping at www.arganaspa.com Argan oil is used primarily for the skin.
In a New York Times article, Liz Earle, who runs an organic skin-care line in England, said, “When I first found argan oil, I brought it back to the U.K. to have it analyzed . . . it was so remarkably high in vitamin E and had these very interesting phytosterols, which are good for scar tissue and so many other things” including, she says, that hard-to-define problem of lackluster skin.”
Moroccanoil, which has argan oil as its main ingredient, was created as a revolutionary hair styling, finishing and conditioning product for the hair. It is said to be an antioxidant, UV protector and free radical neutralizer that is rich in vitamins which will strengthen the hair and increase its elasticity.
I’ve recently been trying Moroccanoil and will say it is “one of a kind.” Initially I used too much but quickly learned a little bit goes a long way. It can be put into towel dried hair or dry hair. It improved shine, has a wonderful smell and absorbes quickly into the hair and hands. It can also be used before coloring the hair as a way to enhance the hair’s ablility to absorb color. I haven’t tried that yet but will next time I color my hair.
Another big plus for argan oil is that it is harvested under a free-trade program and gives real socio-ecological support to thousands of families in Morocco. I give Moroccan oil with argan oil, a big thumbs up at Amazon Moroccanoil with argan oil.
