About Morocco and Argan oil.


 Morocco is a North African country with the population of about 32 million peoples, Argan tree grows in Morocco, and the oil produced from it kernel's. Argan oil is one of the rarest oils in the world because it grows in specific area only . The tree, which is thorny and can reach heights of 8-10 meters, probably. It’s a green fleshy fruit similar to olives. The trunk of the Argan is often twisted and gnarled,farmers allow goats to clamber along its branches and feed on the leaves and fruit. When goats eat the fruit, the fleshy part is digested but the nut remains. Later, farmers collect the nuts to produce oil.
 How Moroccan Argan oil produce

 The production method is very traditional and lengthy. Each nut has to be cracked open to remove the kernels, and research said that producing one liter of oil takes up to 20 hours' work. And it is only women who make Argan oil .

Benefit of Moroccan Argan oil
Argan oil is often referred to as a miracle product because of its extreme moisturizing benefits for both hair and skin. Unlike other oils, Argan extracts don’t just temporarily mask dryness. The kernels contain vitamin E to restore each strand of hair and keep it moisturized long after use. At the same time, Argan oil helps to naturally restore the hair cuticle. This is made possible by the natural presence of antioxidants that directly reverse cellular damage.(Reference arganoil.com)

 My Thoughts :
As I stated above, I used the original Moroccan oil treatment I was looking for it alternative because it's quite expensive and not available in Pakistan, I tested this 30ml pump bottle leave in treatment to replace my Orignal Moroccan oil serum. Avon comes in a clear plastic bottle with a turquoise lid and spray and a clear lid which goes on. I was skeptical about it the truth is that I wasn't expecting such a huge hair improvement . My  hairs left soft and shiny it doesn't look like an old mope anymore one issue to watch for is using too much. You just need one pump. If you use too much, it weighs your hair down and can look oily IT GIVES MY HAIR SHINE AND BODY WHILE NOURISHING IT. MY HAIR HAS TRANSFORMED INTO EVERYTHING I COULD IMAGINE." its not as good as my original Moroccan oil bottle but yes it does  what it claim  I am not sure that it protect hair from heat damaging or not but apart from everything, the whole range is awesome . I have its Hair mask as well, but I have not tried it yet I ll update as soon as I ll try that .

One n only argan oil 

 Quick review:
 I would like to share a quick review on drugstore argan oil brand which is a sample I received with my purchase from ulta this little bottle is extremely worthy its alcohol free and very reasonable I will highly recommend this product if I compare  these 2 argan oil treatments,  I ll give 8 to drugstore argan oil and 5 to avon argan oil the smell is soo soo soo   fantastic that I keep smelling it when I pour it on my palm lol this is the best alternative for my costly Moroccan argan oil .and the 100 Ml bottle only cost 11$ which is superb but unfortunately not available in Pakistan .

How to Use Argan Oil in Your Hair
Argan oil is applied either before or after washing the hair. Generally, if you want to keep moisture balance in your cuticle, then you can apply the oil one to two times per week before shampooing.
Applying argan oil before shampooing should follow this routine:
1. Apply a generous amount of oil throughout hair from roots to tips, and massage it into the scalp.
2. Put on a shower cap or cloth to allow the Argan oil to penetrate the cuticle. Set in place for at least five minutes.
3. Remove cap and wash out with warm water.
4. For the best results, follow up with an organic shampoo and conditioner.
The oil can also act as an extreme moisturizing agent for all-day use. This technique is especially useful for extremely damaged and dry strands. At the same time, it can help tame frizz and reduce the appearance of split ends.
Follow these steps for wearing argan oil throughout the day:
1. Apply two to three drops of organic argan oil at your roots and massage the product into the scalp.
2. Take a wide-tooth comb and spread the product evenly through hair.
3. Add more product to the hair sparingly as needed.
4. Do not add water or any other styling products on top of the argan oil.
If you have curly or wavy hair, you may also consider applying organic argan oil to the ends of your strands on a daily basis. This method helps to replenish the lack of moisture on the lower half of your hair that is often related to having natural curls and waves.
Bottom Line
Using argan oil as a part of your beauty regimen can help keep your hair moisturized on a consistent basis. There may also be times in which your hair becomes extra dry. Coloring sessions, a lack of humidity and too much sun can all zap the moisture out of your cuticle. Argan oil is an affordable solution to such problems.
It is also important to incorporate argan oil into other healthy hair techniques. Avoid excessive sun exposure, and limit the use of heated styling tools, such as blow dryers and flat irons. Use quality cleansers and conditioners in the shower to help keep your hair healthy. Although argan oil is truly a miracle product, it works best when you follow other healthy hair techniques, too.
