Dry hair treatment: Argan Oil


Hi Fashionsistas,

Welcome to Fast Fridays a new series here on Not a Model TV where I am going to share with you, my fast fashion and beauty tips - every Friday! Hooray!

I received a few emails asking me about dry hair treatments so for my first ‘Fast Fridays’ episode, I’m going to share with you how to use Argan oil for hair and also bonus skincare tips too!

First, what is Argan Oil?

Native in Morocco and popularly referred to as ‘liquid gold’, Argan oil comes from the kernels of the Argan tree. The Argan nut is extremely rich in fatty acids and vitamin E making it one of the most popular organic substances used in natural based products, which is why I love to use it in its purest form.

Watch below for my fast tips on using Argan Oil as a dry hair treatment.

You can find the Argan Oil I use in my beauty box.

And remember, you don’t need to be a model to look like you’ve stepped off the runway – you just need a killer wardrobe and some lipstick.

Big love,

How to use Argan Oil for hair

So many of you are probably thinking that applying oil into you hair is gross and will leave your hair really oily. But you can forget that traditional stereotype of oil because Argan oil is dry oil, making it non-greasy. 

I sometimes us Argan Oil in my wet hair prior to blow-drying depending on what look I’m going for, it leaves my hair smooth and silky. Most days I just apply it to my already styled hair as a defrizz serum/leave in treatment.

To apply it through your hair, take a few drops of Argan Oil in the palm of your hand (you only need a small amount). 

Rub your hands together to warm the oil and spread it evenly over your hands.

Then just run your hands through you hair.

I focus on the ends of my hair as this is the driest, and as our scalps naturally produce oil you don’t need to be adding more there. If you do suffer from a dry scalp, massage some Argan Oil onto your scalp too though; it’s really good for that!

Skincare uses for Argan Oil

I would love to use pure Argan Oil as a full body moisturizer but the bottles are quite small and it would be an expensive moisturizer that would keep on running out. Argan Oil is really great for targeting stubborn dry areas like ankles, knees and elbows.

It can also be used as a lip balm and to naturally treat your nails – I use Argan oil prior to giving myself a manicure, I put a few drops in some warm water to soak my cuticles, you can also just massage it over your nails and cuticles too.

I’m a big fan or Argan Oil, I’ve always got a bottle in the house and take it with me when I travel as it’s especially good through my hair after being on a long-haul flight.
