Moroccan/Argan Oil: What is it and why do we love it?
Posted by Barb Huffman on August 08, 2014
Every now and then there is a product out there that seems to show up EVERYWHERE. It’s nearly impossible to walk down the hair care aisle at any store without seeing MORROCAN OIL this or ARGAN OIL that. We assume that because it’s so popular, it must be good for us, right? But what is it?
Moroccan Oil, aka Argan Oil, is plant oil that is produced from the Argan tree. The Argan tree grows mainly in, you guessed it, Morocco, hence the two names. The tree itself takes about 30-50 years to mature enough to produce fruit, so pure oil is rare and can be a little more pricey.
Unroasted oil is touted as a moisturizer, burn healer, hair fortifier and treatment of wrinkly or dry skin. Well sir, that sounds fairly amazing, doesn’t it? Full of antioxidants and essential fats, the advantages to your body, skin, and hair are almost endless. As a hair treatment, Moroccan oil can help prevent split ends, control frizzy hair, as well as repair damaged hair. As a natural anti-inflammatory formula, it has been proven to sooth and relax tired body parts, aching muscles, arthritic joints, and rheumatoid arthritis.
