Updated: Jul 21

The chemicals used in all hair products will definitely make your hair feel different and maybe start falling out. The only thing that will protect you from breaking off is Argan Oil.

Among all the oils that exists out there, Argan Oil is the most beneficial one to your hair and skin.

How do we know that Argan Oil could be beneficial for hair especially? We made some research and we found out that hairstylist like Andrew Fitzsimons and Artistic Director Kevin Highes approves all the amazing benefits of Argan Oil.


Both Hughes and Fitzsimons agree that Argan oil is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The oil is your go-to oil if you want to have a soft and healthy hair.

Here is what Hughes said about the oil “Argan oil is an age-old beauty secret that has many uses, helping to hydrate and soften your hair. With its high content of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and vitamin E, the benefits of Argan oil naturally help increase hair's elasticity and consistently restore shine to dull, lifeless hair”. “It is also a powerful antioxidant, UV-protector, and free radical neutralizer."

Fitzsimons mentions that the fatty acids and vitamin E which are the main components of Argan Oil, will give your hair and skin the protection you deserve.

He also said that "Whether we realize it or not, we put our hair through a lot of damage with everyday pollution, chemical treatments, and hot tools,".

"Vitamin E helps keep your follicles free from damage while helping to prevent splitting and breakage."


Argan oil’s unique and rare essentials will nourish and moisturize your skin, reduce premature aging, strengthen and nurture your hair.

Argan oil can be used in different ways and can be found in many haircare products. But we do recommend using the oil in its original form.

As a conditioner:

Only Argan Oil will nourish and deeply soften your hair. It will moisturize and strengthen your hair without leaving a greasy finish. It will allow you to have a disciplined hair for a perfect smoothing.

Rich in vitamin A, your hair will benefit from protection against external aggressions and hair fall. "It is extremely rich in tocopherols (vitamin E), essential fatty acids, and antioxidants, which helps to nourish and detangle hair," says Hughes.

"Argan Oil is rich in nutrients and vitamins such as vitamins A, C, and E; antioxidants; linoleic acid; and omega-6 fatty acids, so it's a great ingredient for a conditioner.

The combination of all these super-nourishing ingredients leaves the hair strands softer, shinier, more manageable, and helps tame frizz," says Fitzsimons.

As a heat protectant spray:

"The health of my clients' hair is everything; I have to really make sure their hair is in peak condition, so I look for ingredients like silk proteins to make sure the hair is as protected as possible while I'm using hot tools," says Fitzsimons.

"I like Argan Oil as an ingredient in heat protection products because it's very nourishing and conditioning for the hair, and it provides great slip that makes styling easier."

As a hair mask:

"Argan Oil is amazing in hair masks, particularly if you have damaged hair. The vitamin E in the oil helps smooth frayed hair shafts and seal split ends while the omega fatty acids work to strengthen your hair, so leaving on for 15 to 30 minutes as a mask is a fantastic way to reap the benefits of Argan Oil," he says.

As a hair oil:

"High-quality oil-infused products are essential to maintaining shiny, healthy hair because hair oils are made to penetrate into your strands, as opposed to serums, which usually sit on the surface of the strands," says Hughes.

As a styling product:

Fitzsimons says that Argan Oil provides an excellent shine to the strands and has major anti frizz benefits. He also added that Curly hair girls can use Argan to help define the beauty of their curls.

As a scalp treatment:

Since Argan Oil is full of antioxidants and vitamins it can be very effective in your scalp treatment. It can also help reduce the inflammation of your scalp which leads to the annoying dandruff, dryness and other issues.

Now that we have seen what the experts has said about Argan Oil, all you have to do is make sure to only use the Pure Organic Argan Oil to get the hair your deserve!
