- The Top 10 Argan Oil Shampoos
The Top 10 Argan Oil Shampoos that Quench Dry Hair Types
Split ends, breakages, chemical treatments and over styling are just a few of the problems that come with having a gorgeous mane of hair. While it’s important to give your hair a break now and then from heat styling tools and the salon foils, we know giving them up completely is impossible (trust us, we wouldn't be able to do it either). You can also sustain damage to your hair just from going out in the sun.
So it’s really crucial that you use super nourishing formulas in the shower to nourish your hair with every wash.
Whether you have oily, coarse or dry strands, there’s a treatment to suit every hair type. Today, we’re tackling dry locks. One way we love to keep our dehydrated tresses in tip-top condition is with an argan oil shampoo.
Not only will shampoos with this amazing ingredient help moisturise and smooth any frizz and flyaways, but they'll also add some much-needed shine for a beautiful, healthy-looking ‘do.
What is argan oil?
So, why argan oil, we hear you cry. Well, dubbed ‘liquid gold’ in the beauty industry, argan oil has tons of benefits for your hair, skin and nails. It contains a blend of essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins that work together to moisturise your hair, strengthen your nails and rejuvenate your skin.
It comes from the kernels of the argan tree found in Morocco and has been traditionally used both topically and orally. That’s why you can find this star player in a range of face oils, body lotions, hair masks, conditioners and, of course, shampoos.
To make your life a little bit easier, we've rounded up ten of the best argan oil shampoos to help repair and rejuvenate your tired and dry strands.
