So, What are Argan Oil’s Actual Benefits for Hair?

Argan oil isn’t anything new. It’s been around for a while and has spiked in popularity within the last decade. In fact, we’re pretty sure there’s a whole cosmetic line dedicated to this ingredient. But there’s more to hair than following the latest buzzword. Here, we’re breaking down this oil to see what it’s made of and what it does for your hair.

Nuts on argan tree

Argan oil comes from Morocco, specifically from the nuts of argan trees which contain oil-rich kernels. When harvested, these kernels release oil that’s filled with high doses of vitamin E and fatty acids. What does this mean for your hair? Two words: smooth styling. These nutrients condition and seal cuticles for a sleek, frizz-free look. Some studies even show that it may stimulate hair growth when applied near follicles.
