  • I love Argan Oil! A co-work told me about it and said how much she loves it. I use products that contain the oil in it. So many people tell me out shiny my hair looks and I recently had color put in my hair too and it keeps my hair from drying out.

  • So if I would like to get this oil where can I get it from? Now I have seen produects with Argan oil in it but I would like the oil itself.

  • A lot of health food stores carry it. I wouldn’t get pure argan oil from any beauty retailer just because the markup will be completely insane.

  • Argan Oil is wonderful but I use 100% pure Argan Oil from Whole Foods. It isn’t cheap but it is MUCH better than the commercial brands including Moroccan Oil. I have tried One N Only and Moroccan and the pure Argan from Whole Foods is remarkable. I color treat and relax my hair and this oil makes my hair SO smooth and shiny. I do stay away from heat styling though. I wrap my hair and flat iron it once a week. Makes a huge difference in the appearance and feel of my hair.

  • I just started using argan oil because my hair is very dry…..I love it…I read in a article to put a few drops in your shampoo which I did also….my hair has a nice shine to it that lasts
