The Argan tree that is indigenous of Morocco has a unique oil that is extracted and produced from the kernels found in the argan nut. This oil is revered for it's healing and nutritive properties.

Argan oil is very rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids. It's properties are very therapeutic and restorative for the hair and skin. It has a higher content of vitamin e than olive oil which can help the skin from premature aging. It also contains omega 6 essential fatty acid which allows it to absorb easily into the skin.

Specifically for your hair the benefits of Argan oil include that it is light weight which does not make it feel "greasy", water and oil do not mix so when it is applied to damp hair it repels the moisture out of the hair to the surface which helps reduce your blowdrying time while giving your hair thermal protection.

At the Strand we have our two favorite different brands of argan oils, Sexy hairs Healthy sexy Soy Renewal and Macadamia oil
