Why We Are Nuts For Argan Oil
Rich, nourishing and intensely hydrating, Argan Oil has become one of the hottest products in haircare in recent years.
Also known as Liquid Gold, this ancient Moroccan oil can work wonders on dried-out, parched tresses, leaving us with the glossy, soft hair that we all crave. In fact, it’s one of our favourite ingredients at Let Nature Provides, and we swear by it in both our bathroom and kitchen cupboards.
Taken from the fruit of the argan tree, which is found in Morocco, this precious oil has been used for centuries. It dates back to at least 600 BC, when the Phoenicians used argan for its healing (it can be taken as a dietary supplement and to treat wounds) and beautifying properties. In fact, the fruit is so nutritious that goats even climb inside the trees to eat them!
Why is Argan So Good for You?
So, why are we nuts for Argan Oil?
Well, for starters, Argan Oil is packed with nutrients which love both our hair and our bodies. In particular, it is rich in vitamins A, C and E, as well as antioxidants, linoleic acid and omega-6 fatty acids, which make it the perfect hair conditioner. When applied to our locks, it can encourage cell production (vitamin E promotes healthy hair growth and even regrowth), treat split ends and even tame flyaway frizz.
As a natural moisturiser, argan oil can even be used to treat irritated scalps and dandruff, boost shine and gloss, and even reverse the damage of colour-treating the hair.
Our Top Argan Oil Products:
If you want to enjoy this amazing, natural oil, then our award-winning NOAH range harnesses the benefits in many of its products. Here are some of our top picks to help get you started on the Argan Oil trend:
For Intense Hydration -
This nourishing hair oil uses Argan to leave you with soft, healthy and shiny hair. Light and almost weightless, it won’t leave your hair looking lank or lifeless. Instead, it combines nature’s finest oils - including argan, almond, sesame, rice and even coconut - to leave your hair nourished from root to tip. The essential oils of orange, lemon and Ylang Ylang also combine for an uplifting fragrance that will leave you thinking of summers in the Mediterranean.
For Washing -
Perfect for dry, overworked and treated hair, our regenerating shampoo combines only the best, natural and organic Argan oil with other natural ingredients to wage war on dry, brittle hair. This shampoo gently cleanses the scalp, while working to restore shine and elasticity.
For Styling -
Many mousses leave your hair stiff and dry, yet Argan Oil’s natural moisturising properties work to make it a perfect styling agent. Our professional mousse gives a strong hold and plenty of body and texture without any of that stiffness, leaving you with touchably-soft hair. The combination of Argan and sweet almond also create a soft, silky protective film for the hair, which can protect against humidity and even heat sources.
Our hairspray works in the same way as the mousse, helping to lose any of that stiffness and, instead, creating lasting hold with shine. It is also easily brushed out, meaning that you can style and restyle as often as you like!
