Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, you will have noticed that Moroccan Oil, Argan Oil and other such oils have been taking over the beauty community in blogs and on YouTube.
Argan Oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree, endemic to Morocco, that is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties. Cosmetically it is mainly used on the hair wet or dry to leave your hair with a shiny look, leaving it feeling healthy and super soft. It achieves this by absorbing into the hair and using all of its natural goodness to restore your hairs health and help it to be reeeeeeeeally shiny.
Argan oil can also be used on the skin to prevent dryness and help reduce stretch marks, it works in a similar way to the popular and well known Bio-Oil.
I have been after Argan Oil for a long time now but being as forgetful as I am whenever I am on a beauty hunt the oil just goes to the back of my mind. On a random pre-holiday shopping trip to Primark I was queuing up to pay when I saw the Hask Argan Oil by the till for £2.50! (Miss Budget Beauty eat your heart out =D) I had to snap a couple of these up right away and I was eager to get home to wash my hair and it's not often I can say that!
The Oil claims to be a healing shine treatment for a silky smooth finish with exotic shine, and this my friends it does down to a tee. I use a pea size amount rubbed in my palms on wet hair and then blow dry as normal. I also use it occasionally after styling my hair to rid of any flyaway bits. The great thing I have found is that I am not washing my hair any more than I was before which is always a plus in my eyes.
As I used to put a lot of bleach on my hair, it is not in the best condition. Since using the oil I have noticed a massive difference and I will definitely repurchase one this has ran out or I may try a different one, I wouldn't mind getting a big bottle of it so it is there to last for ages.
I think Argan Oil is a must have beauty essential and I honestly don't know how I ever got by without it! At the amazing price of £2.50, you have no excuse to try it!
Do you use hair oil? If so which one? Have you tried the Hask oil? What are your thoughts?
Enjoy Your Day
