by Chantelle Bester


Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania spinosa L.) that is endemic to Morocco. If you haven’t tried argan oil yet you’ve definitely heard of it – here are three ways to use pure argan oil …

As a face serum

Argan oil is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids which makes it a great face treatment oil. Use it on its own or in addition to your day- or night cream.

As a pre-wash hair treatment

If your hair needs a boost, apply a generous amount of argan oil from root to tip, massage in and leave for at least 30 minutes. Shampoo twice and condition as usual.

As a finishing hair oil

To protect your hair from the elements and boost shine, work a couple of drops of argan oil through the roots and especially the ends of damp or dry hair.
