Hot Hair Ingredient: Argan Oil

Grown and harvested in the southwest region of Morocco, the kernels of the argan tree have provided a beauty secret to women of the region for centuries. Moroccan women use the oil harvested from those kernels and apply it to their dry hair for styling and overnight moisture treatments.

This ancient Moroccan secret has found quite a receptive market here in the US. Argan oil is now the hot new ingredient for women seeking softer, silkier tresses. Here are some of the hottest new argan oil infused products!

Moroccan Oil. Duh - the brand in the familiar sky-blue label calls itself The Original for a reason. Moroccan Oil helped to put argan oil on the mainstream map, and there's a reason it's so popular with women with both relaxed and natural hair - it smells awesome, and it works!

Creme of Natureis known and loved by black women with all different textures of hair, and their new Creme of Nature with Argan Oil From Morocco line promises to deliver radiant shine and intense moisture to thirsty tresses.

At $1.50 for a 1.75 oz packet, it's an affordable way to give argan oil a try! Look for the new red packages on store shelves this summer.
