Argan Oil – Whats the deal? | Beauty

Argan oil, also known as Moroccan oil is an organic oil pressed from the seeds of fruit from Morrocco’s Argan tree. Traditionally used as a cooking oil, in recent years it has been exported as a treatment for skin and hair problems such as acne, dry skin and damaged hair.

When I was doing #30daysnoheat, Argan oil seemed to be hailed as a magic cure for my damaged locks. Since completing the challenge and making a few changes to my routine, my hair is in incredible condition. I don’t have the problem, where my scalp would be dry, roots greasy and ends dry and frayed.

Rodin by Recine

I thought it was about time I saw what all the fuss was about.


I tried two types of oil one for my hair and one for my skin. Argan oil is high in vitamin E, so I am hoping it will help improve the appearance of my scar.

The first one I tried was . My main concern was that the oil would make my hair greasy. I applied a few drops to the ends of damp hair and then styled it. My hair was definitely softer and shinier. Putting a few drops on to the ends of dry hair brought it back to life! But be careful about how much you use, I rub it into my palms and then through my hair.

You can buy the Rodin by Recine Luxury Hair Oil on their website for $65.

Kahina Argan Oil

For my skin I tested the s 100% Organic Kahina Argan Oil, which is described as being rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants. Again I was worried about my skin appearing really greasy. But the oil absorbed very quickly and left my skin feeling smooth and soft. Not only did I notice my skin was more even, but I the spots near my hairline have vanished.

This product can also be used for your hair, but I found it was a tad heavy for my thin locks.  Joe on the other hand found that it absorbed perfectly into his thicker mop.

The oil may seem expensive but it is well worth the investment and when you consider how little you will use each time the product will last for ages!
