Argan oil for hair is so good, it’s evident in its strong presence in many shampoo products. It has an ability to restore your hair’s softness, strength, and shine, and that’s ideal for damaged hair due to styling and coloring. Apply it to your hair as it is or mix it with your favorite shampoo to get strong, nourished, and beautiful hair.

Because it’s rich in antioxidants, argan oil is also a good fix for your dandruff and scalp problems. It will soothe your itching scalp, reduce inflammation, and remove dandruff. As best practice, you can take a few drops and massage it into your scalp to stimulate your blood circulation. You can leave it overnight and rinse in the morning.

Editor’s tip: Scalp and dandruff problems need thorough care. Start with a good scalp care shampoo like the Clear Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. This potent yet gentle shampoo will nourish and hydrate your scalp back to its healthy state.

5. Hair Oil

Argan oil is a good shine and anti-frizz oil versus any other serum, because argan oil penetrates your hair strands and not just stay on the surface. Put some in a handy bottle which you can bring around for a quick hair retouch.

6. As Heat Protectant
