Argan Oil and Frizzy Hair Trick
Having the most uncontrollable frizziest hair known to mankind, as soon as the humidity hits my hair, I previously found it impossible to tame the mane and achieve shiny, silky hair. I tried coconut oil but found for curly unruly hair like mine Argan Oil was my saviour in a magical bottle.
I came across Argan Oil when going to a hairdressing shop purely dedicated for Afro-Caribbean hair in hopes that some tips or tricks would be provided. I was told my hair was the ideal foundation for using Argan Oil. So I learnt to experiment with measurements and found that utilising the oil in my routine kept my hair hydrated, nourished from any heat or dye damage. I frequently use it as a leave in conditioner, giving my curls a deep dose of moisturisation. After my usual shampoo and conditioner regime, I’ll proceed to dropping between 5-10 good drops of Argan Oil into my hand and finger combing it through the areas I find problematic such as around my neck and the top of my hair where my hair parts that is naturally more coarse and prone to frizz. If my hair is in seriously need of some TLC, I’ll apply a thick amount on a day where I won’t have anything to do and throw my hair up in a towel and sometimes go to bed with the treatment on, putting a towel on my pillow. Which is to be washed off the following morning – curly hair can hold grease in a very different way to straight hair, so if you like the wet look this can be an efficient way of defining your curls in your daily routine.
I also found in an emergency windy or humid day, whilst hair is completely dry a few drops can be rubbed between your hands and slightly wiped over the top of the hair to tame flyaway hairs and give a surface sheen. It’s always super handy to keep some in your handbag for any hair touch-ups, and has become a statement go-to product I’ll always keep at arm’s length.
