What is the theory?
Argan oil consists of nutrients that are beneficial for your skin and help hair grow thicker including carotenes, fatty acids (80% unsaturated), phenols, tocopherols, and squalene. Argan oil is a natural extract from the hard-shelled nuts found in the fruit of argan trees, the native plants in Morocco.
These nuts represent about 25% of the total weight of the fruit, containing one to three oil-rich kernels. Depending on the extraction method, the producers can only yield from 30% to 50% of the oil in the kernels, which means it requires a huge quantity of these fruits to produce a significant amount of argan oil.
Argan oil provides essential fatty acids for thicker hair growth
EFA are good for hair growth. Omega-3 fatty acids can improve blood circulation and cell growth, which help to escalate nutrient absorption at the hair follicles, decrease stress and strengthen the immune system.
Argan oil is rich in Vitamin E
Argan oil contains vitamin E, a natural antioxidant, which protects the scalp and helps for thicker hair growth. Vitamin E helps bring about a balance in between the pH levels, oil production, blood circulation and follicle health, ensuring that hair grows out to be healthy and strong.
Vitamin E in argan oil shields the scalp from free radicals that have the potential to damage human cells and genetic material. It also helps blood circulation in your scalp and stimulates hair to grow faster and thicker with the sufficient nutrients.
Argan oil helps moisturize hair and grow thicker
It is crucial to handle hair with care not only restricted to washing and combing but also styling in protective styles such as braids, twists, ponytails... Your hair needs water to be more flexible when manipulated. Dry hair breaks easily even with gentle force. Therefore, moisturizer is essential to keep the roots healthy.
The deficiency in vitamin E will lead to dryness. Vitamin E in argan oil has strong emollient properties that seal moisture in the hair shaft, keeping it conditioned, making your hair smooth and strong, alleviating damage during handling.
Does argan oil have any side effect?Despite the common benefits, Argan oil has some significant drawbacks if you do it in the wrong way. Failing to follow the basic procedure of applying oil to your hair might cause greasy feeling in your hair. Applying oil directly on the scalp is not encouraged by hair experts because it clogs the follicles and decreases the pH level in your hair, which might be a cause of hair loss. Natural oils produced from your body help to regulate a natural pH level in the scalp.
Natural oils are not water-soluble so they tend to leave a residue even after being washed off. Going out under the sun with that oil coating on your scalp will cause damage to the internal structure of the hair as the sun heats the oil layer. Putting more oil on the scalp causes the body to stop producing natural oil, messes with the water balance on the scalp. Your hair may look shiny on the outside but it is actually dry and brittle due to lack of moisturizers, causing hair loss. Hair experts recommend that instead of using whatever argan oil products that you feel like, you should consider water soluble oil treatment solutions that are easy to wash off. Argan oil is the best option in a time when hair is not exposed to a variety of harmful external elements to your hair including pollution, preservative-laced food, chemicals and treatments. Excessive oils and hair perspiration can also produce hardened crystals that block the hair follicles and stiffen the surrounding tissues. Your scalp will be more susceptible to hair loss.
