Argan Oil Questions (Hair, Skin, Benefits, Pure Oil, Best Blends)

Argan Oil

Extracted from the kernel of the argan fruit, which itself comes from a tree that grows in the Moroccan dessert and takes half a century to reach maturity, argan oil is one of the hottest topics right now in the beauty industry. But what are the benefits of this substance, where can you find it in its purest form and how is it used?

In this article we aim to answer all of your frequently asked questions about argan oil. If there is something you want do know about this oil then there’s a good chance you will find the answer here.

Is Argan Oil Good for Hair

Hair growth is obviously our primary concern here on Hair Growth Pills, and it has been said that argan oil can help with this, assisting with growth, helping to limit loss and also conditioning the hair. This is not the only benefit, as discussed below, but it works on the hair in much the same way as it works on the skin.

It helps to nourish and moisturize like castor oil, which is down to its high concentration of Vitamin E, a common ingredient in skincare and haircare products. It is also rich in fatty acids, which means it can provide the same strengthening benefits as fats like omega 3, omega 6 and olive oil, as well as castor oil.

You can also use it on the skin, nourishing, protecting and moisturizing just like it does on your scalp. And because it’s a natural and safe product, there is no limit to how much you can apply and it is as safe on your skin and hair as it is on your baby’s skin and hair.

Argan oil is often used is beauty products and shampoos. It has become the go-to ingredient and a buzzword that marketing experts can’t get enough of. But for something to call itself an “Argan Oil” shampoo, and for a product to specify it as an ingredient it doesn’t need a great amount and it definitely doesn’t need to be pure. Many formulas use very low quantities of very low grade argan oil. This allows them to claim all kinds of benefits, but the oil itself is unlikely to have any sort of positive effect.

Can you Eat Argan Oil?

Can you Eat Argan Oil

It may sound like a bizarre statement to make, but argan oil is delicious and as healthy when you eat it as it is when you apply it. Because we’re so used to seeing it in our shampoos and skincare, we have become accustomed to thinking it is not edible and is even toxic when consumed. This is simply not the case.

Obviously, you shouldn’t be eating creams, lotions or shampoos that contain it as you have no idea how they have been treated or if they contain anything else, but if you get 100% pure argan oil then there is nothing stopping you from eating it. You can consume it like you consume olive oil, which is to say as a drizzle over salads or as a dip for bread. And like olive oil, you should avoid cooking with it, as all of those benefits begin to disappear as it is heated, and what you’re left with isn’t very nutritious at all.

What are the Best Pure Argan Oil Brands

There are many pure argan oil brands and strong formulations out there that we recommend. These are beneficial for a number of reasons, either because they contain this oil in its purest and wholesome best, or because they contain it in high concentration alongside other equally beneficial ingredients.

Some of our picks for the best pure argan oil blends and shampoos include Josie Maran Argan Oil, Marc Anthony Argan Oil and One and Only Argan Oil. There are also good formulas available in your local Walmart and other convenience stores. Just pay attention to the label and the small print, and don’t go lathering it on your face or your hair unless it is the main or one of the main ingredients, and unless the other ingredients—if there any—are just as helpful.

What Does Argan Oil Smell Like

What Does Argan Oil Smell Like?

This is a question that we get asked a lot, and it’s not as random as it seems. The smell of the argan oil can actually be a good indicator of purity, telling you whether you have something that is adulterated or something that is as pure as the label claims it is.

It is actually hard to describe the smell of argan oil to someone who has never sampled this fragrance before. It’s very unique. However, it does have a strong nutty fragrance, with a hint of sweetness. In this sense, it’s somewhat similar to other nut oils, but with it’s own distinctive aroma.

Where Can I Buy Argan Oil?

As mentioned above you can buy argan oil from many different sources. It is generally expensive for the high concentrations. It is not unusual to pay as much as $1 per 1ml for the good stuff. This means that a simple tincture of 100ml can cost as much as $100. It is available for less, of course, but when you send less you’re often getting an inferior product.

If you want to spend less but you don’t want to sacrifice on quality, then look for a high quality oil that is diluted with a harmless ingredient, or simply look to buy less of it.

How to Use Argan Oil for Hair Growth

Argan Oil for Hair Growth

To use argan oil for hair growth, you just need to apply it directly to the scalp and then massage it in. You can leave it in for a few minutes, a couple hours or even all night if you can take it. If you’re going to leave it in for an extended period of time then you will need to either add it to a gel like aloe vera gel, or wear a cap of some kind over it. Otherwise the oil will leave a mess all over your pillows and your face and will make for an unpleasant night sleep.

The longer you leave it in, the more chance it has to work its magic on your roots and your scalp.
