7 transformative benefits of argan oil for your hair

Posted by Allan Weizmann on

If you are haircare and skincare obsessed (like we are) chances are you're familiar with argan oil in your beauty products. Argan oil has been a well-known powerhouse ingredient in the beauty community for a while now thanks to its myriad of benefits. It's rich in fatty acids, vitamin E, squalane and antioxidants, all of which help to keep your hair shiny, smooth and nourished.

If you’ve been struggling with your hair, argan oil might just be the missing piece of your routine. Keep reading to learn more about argan oil, its benefits and how to use it in your hair with our favorite products.

What is argan oil?

Argan oil is a natural plant oil derived from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania spinosa), which is native to Morocco. Sometimes referred to as Moroccan oil, it’s been used for centuries in traditional medicine and culinary practices. But thanks to its incredible array of benefits, argan oil has become a multitasking superhero in the beauty world.

7 argan oil benefits for hair

  1. Deep moisturization: Argan oil is rich in fatty acids and vitamin E, so it naturally hydrates and nourishes dry or damaged hair
  2. Frizz control: Argan oil tames frizz and flyaways without weighing down hair
  3. Natural-looking shine: Unlike many hair oils, argan oil doesn’t leave a greasy residue – so your hair looks lustrous without appearing oily
  4. Detangles: Argan oil’s fatty acids can penetrate the hair shaft, nourishing it from within 
  5. Keeps scalp healthy: Massaging argan oil into your scalp helps moisturize the scalp and keep your roots healthy
  6. Protects: The antioxidants in argan oil help combat free radicals, shielding the hair from environmental damage, such as the sun’s harmful UV rays
  7. Improves elasticity: Through its rich composition of essential fatty acids, argan oil helps hair become more resilient and less prone to breakage

Our favorite argan oil hair products

Because of these benefits, we’ve included argan oil in several of our formulas to help detangle hair, reduce frizz and lock in moisture. Want to add some argan oil to your haircare routine? Here's a lineup of each Verb product that contains the powerhouse ingredient and why your hair will thank you for using it:

Ghost™ Oil

Ghost™ Oil is a bestseller for a reason; it's an everyday, weightless hair oil that smooths hair from roots to ends. This product blends moringa oil and argan oil to enrich the hair shaft with essential nutrients that naturally moisturize, smooth frizz and promote radiant shine for all hair types.

How is this hair oil different from the rest of the argan hair oils out there? The moringa oil base means it's an extremely weightless formula that won't weigh your hair down, making this oil especially great for those with fine hair. 

Moringa is a lightweight clear oil that, when mixed with argan oil, brings you the best of both worlds. Apply to damp hair before drying for smooth strands or add 1-2 pumps onto dry ends (or beards!) to transform any style and reduce frizz.

Stylist tip: After using 1-2 pumps on your hair, rub any excess oil onto nails, cuticles and even tattoos to add some shine and extra nourishment. shop verb ghost oil
