For centuries, Moroccan women have turned to their best beauty secret—argan oil—to repair hair cuticles and fight frizz. Rich in fatty acids, vitamin E, Omega-6 and minerals, argan oil instills hair with incredible youthful flexibility and shine.
Although this secret is now well known in the US, not all oils are created equal. Argan needs to be unrefined, cold-pressed and sourced directly from Moroccan villages.
There are many ways to integrate argan oil into your hair care. Here are some of our favorite products:
DermOrganic® 100% Pure Argan Oil is cold pressed and sourced directly from six different local Morocco Women’s Cooperatives. Non-refined, pure and organic, it can be used on the hair and skin. Available at http://www.DermOrganic.com.
Argan Oil of Morocco features a line of popular products from shampoo and conditioner to hair butter and shower oil. Products are sulfate free and leave locks feeling soft and lush. Available at http://www.walgreens.com

One ‘n Only Argan Heat Ceramic Straightening Iron smooths, heals and nourishes your tresses with argan oil infused Sol-gel technology plates.

Argan oil remains your best remedy especially if your hair is coarse, curly and frizzy. Natural, wholesome and generous, Moroccans call it “liquid gold” for a reason!
