How Argan Oil Helps to
Repair Dry, Damaged Hair

Listen to the article


Is it time to make split ends a thing of the past, but feeling the pressure of the present? At Herbal Essences, we believe that maintaining beautiful hair should be as effortless as it looks, which is why we use clean ingredients brought to you by nature. Next time your dry hair needs a revival, skip the salon (and save the money) and give argan oil a try instead. Argan oil is rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E, making it a power-packed ingredient with nutrients damaged hair craves.

Get Ahead of the Game

One of the best uses for argan oil is as a preventative treatment. By adding argan oil into your haircare routine regularly, you’re helping your hair build up strength before it can even think about taking on damage. To help maintain your hair’s natural moisture, work a few drops of argan oil into the ends of your hair before showering or after styling for an extra shine. If you’ve been blessed with curls - even better! Run a little argan oil through those curls before going out, and get sleek, bouncy curls without the weight of a heavy product. No matter your hair type, if you’re someone who uses hot tools regularly or is exposed to the elements often, you’ll definitely want to add argan oil to your hair toolbox.

Better yet, you can skip a step and incorporate products that already include argan oil as an ingredient into your regimen. The next time you run out of shampoo and conditioner, try looking for argan oil on the list of ingredients for your next set. On that note, we can’t help but mention that Herbal Essences’ Avocado & Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner from our Bio:renew line won the 2022 Allure Best of Beauty Award. It just doesn’t get any easier than that, now does it?

Argan Oil Hair Treatments

If you’re already experiencing breakage and dryness, argan oil still has you covered (literally). Make a hair mask using argan oil and other nourishing ingredients, such as coconut oil or caster oil, make a hair mask. Then, massage that combo into clean, dry hair from tip to root. From here, you can wrap your hair in a towel. Now, here’s the best part – go to sleep! Let the argan oil work its magic overnight and wash it out in the morning. Repeat 1-2 times per week until you feel fabulous once again. Who knew getting healthy, sleek hair was so easy?

Argan oil is also a great detangling agent. You can often find it in detangling sprays and creams to get soft, touchable hair in the blink of a spray. Sound like the product for you? Try out Herbal Essences’ Argan Oil & Aloe Sulphate-Free Detangling Cream. Simply apply it to damp hair prior to styling and let nature work its magic.
