Best practices for using argan oil for hair
There are many different hair types ranging from soft to frizzy to thick and coarse hair; and there are various levels of dryness and oily hair. And each make-up of hair strands demands its own special attention. Coarse hair could use longer conditioning periods than softer, oily hair.
So there is no one-answer-fits-all for how to best use argan oil for hair. You need to figure this out a bit yourself based on the type of hair you have. But nevertheless, here are some suggestions and methods how to use argan oil for hair.
First of all, use argan oil sparingly. While the oil, if natural and pure, is thin and light, it is also very rich. A small amount can get you a long way, so don’t dump a whole handful at a time onto your hair.
If you have longer hair, it is most efficient to pour some argan oil into your palms and then let your hair slide through your palms.
You decide how much of your hair gets the oil treatment. If your hair tips are dry, frizzy and split, you can apply the oil to your tips only. If you want to apply the oil along the entire length of your hair strands, slide your palms from the top down to the ends.
For men and women with shorter hair, wet your palms and your fingers with the oil, grab a handful of hair and let your hair pull through your hands and fingers.
For deep, intensive nourishment and conditioning, you could apply the oil to your dry hair in the evening and let it absorb overnight. Wrap a towel around your hair and secure it well so it doesn’t fall off overnight. In the morning, wash your hair like you usually do. People with coarse hair will notice that their hair becomes much softer and more manageable.
If an overnight treatment doesn’t appeal to you, apply argan oil to your hair for 1 – 2 hours and let it absorb. If you do this just one time a week, you will notice that your hair becomes softer and shiny.
If you are concerned about argan oil making your hair oily but don’t want to miss out on the beneficial properties of the oil, you can massage some argan oil into your hair right before you take a shower and wash your hair. Naturally, the longer you allow the oil to absorb, the better; which doesn’t mean that an application on the run before washing your hair won’t have its benefits.
You can also apply argan oil after you washed your hair. Simply towel-dry your hair and then massage a small amount of oil into your hair. This will provide deep nourishment for your hair and also protect your hair from the heat of blow dryers and curling irons which can damage your strands.
Argan oil for dandruff
Argan oil has anti-microbial properties which are beneficial for people that fight dandruff. Many people may think dandruff is the result of a dry scalp. While some people may experience a dry, itchy scalp, dandruff is actually an infection of the scalp.
Should you have problems with dandruff, apply some argan oil to the tips of your fingers and massage it into your scalp making sure you cover your entire head. The anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids contained in argan oil have anti-inflammatory qualities and will fight the scalp infection and promote healing while at the same time also nourish and moisturize your scalp.
Lastly, choose the best argan oil product you can buy. Avoid products that contain fragrances and preservatives. Some argan oil products for hair even contain silicone. Stick to the natural brand of Kandala Argan Oil and you can’t go wrong.
