Over the last year I've tried quite a few unscented pure oils for various uses. I started with just the olive oil that I have in my kitchen and then moved on to jojoba and castor after discovering the oil cleansing method. But at the moment my favourite oil to use is argan. I came across it a lot when I was researching the different oils that one could use for skincare, but dismissed it a little as it can be quite expensive in comparison to others.
After turning green I tried a few of the other oils, and also (briefly and badly) attempted the no-poo method - none of them really made any lasting difference. But this argan in conjunction with my new shampoo seems to be easing the flaky scratchy-ness. There's still elements of flakiness but it does seem to be better than it was. I've been leaving it in my hair before washing and gently brushing with my wooden brush to release the flakes (euch!) and sooth my scalp.
Good for me?
It's a thinner oil that still packs a punch and I'm definitely considering repurchasing when I'm finished with this bottle. I love that it's in an airless container as it makes dispensing really easy - I love bottles and droppers but they can be messy... plus I can be really clumsy and me + open bottles are a lethal combination! As well as using it for my scalp, I've actually found that it's even light enough to use as a bit of a serum - other oils that I've tried have been too heavy and make my hair look like I've dunked it in grease.
Good for you?
If you haven't tried argan before and have been put off by other oils, then I recommend trying this one next. As well as hair you can use it on your face, nails and body - pretty much everything! A pump of this will go far.
