10.  Super Soft Lips

No one likes dry, chapped, uncomfortable lips. (Not to mention how unsightly they are!) If you tend to get dry lips during the summer or winter months, you can prevent this by rubbing just one or two drops of Argan oil into your lips each day before you head outside. The antioxidants in Argan oil will protect your lips from damage and keep them super hydrated.

 

11. Stimulates Hair Growth

To stop or slow down hair loss while stimulating the growth of new hair, there is nothing like Argan oil. This oil is full of healthy fats and vitamin E which will nourish the hair follicles and liven up dull, lifeless hair. For best results, dampen your hair and then add a few drops of warm Argan oil. Massage it into the hair and scalp for a few minutes, and then cover with a shower cap. If you can, leave it on overnight, otherwise, leave it on for as long as you can. Shampoo as you normally would. Repeat twice a week for hair that will be the envy of everyone.

 

12. Prevent and Repair Split Ends

Argan oil will prevent dryness and environmental damage, including sun damage, by coating the hair shaft. This will seal in moisture and prevent split ends. Argan oil will make your hair more manageable and less prone to breakage from styling and brushing. If you use henna or amla products, Argan oil will help to seal in the color so you can increase the time between colorings. For nourishing your hair and keeping it in the best possible condition, you cannot go wrong with Argan oil.

Keep in mind that you might find some cheaper Argan oil “cocktails” or beauty products that say they contain Argan oil but chances are that they only contain a drop or two of the real thing. 100 percent pure Argan oil might be a bit more expensive, but it is a true miracle oil that can bring you beautiful hair, skin and nails that you can’t get from any other cheap imitation.
