Pros: Absorbs rapidly in to skin and hair without leaving it heavy and greasy. Smooths frizz and promotes shine.
Final Thoughts: Not all oils are created equally. Just as with cooking oils, oils used for skincare have different uses and provide different results. Have you ever tried putting olive oil or coconut oil in your hair? Unless you have very coarse or very dry hair, it will end up making your hair very greasy and limp. Argan oil is an extremely LIGHT oil. It absorbs rapidly in to both skin and hair. I've used it a few times as a face moisturizer and it's just lovely. My skin isn't shiny and feels soft and hydrated all day.
Similarly, not all argan oils are created equally. Acure sources this oil from a women's co-op in Morocco and it is pure, unrefined, cold-pressed and unprocessed. I've tried other Argan oils before and they were not nearly as light and delicate as this.
Instead of spending double the amount of money for blended haircare products and serums that claim to have argan oil added along with a lot of other nasty stuff, just use the pure oil and I promise you will have fabulous results.
