If you're looking for a game-changing solution to upgrade your hair care routine, an Argan Oil shampoo might be exactly what you need. Argan oil is widely praised for its incredible benefits for hair, transforming lackluster locks into vibrant, lustrous tresses. Let’s take a look at Argan Oil and see why Neuma’s Neu Moisture Collection products feature this amazing elixir.

What is Argan Oil? 

Argan Oil comes from the seeds of the Argan tree (Argania spinosa), which is native to Morocco. The Argan tree is well adapted to arid conditions and grows primarily in southwestern Morocco, in an area that has been declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

The process of extracting Argan Oil is labor-intensive. The Argan Fruit is oval-shaped with a thick outer layer. Inside, there's a hard-shell nut that contains one to three Argan Oil-rich kernels. Once the fruit is collected, the thick outer layer is removed and the hard shell cracked open to extract the kernels.

Traditionally, this process was done by hand, and in many cases, it still is. After the kernels are collected, they are pressed to extract the transformative oil. Because of the manual labor involved, pure Argan Oil can be quite expensive.

It's worth noting that the Argan Oil industry is also important for local women's cooperatives in Morocco, providing a steady income and contributing to social and economic development in the region. These cooperatives also help protect the Argan forests by making it economically beneficial to preserve.

Known for its exceptional moisturizing and nourishing properties, Argan Oil has been used for centuries in various beauty and health applications. It is particularly notable for its transformative effects on hair and skin, making it a popular ingredient in many haircare and beauty formulations.

The Benefits of Argan Oil for Hair

Argan Oil is packed with essential nutrients, such as vitamin E, fatty acids and antioxidants, which contribute to its numerous benefits for hair. Let’s take a look at some of the specific benefits of Argan Oil for hair and why it is such a valuable addition to your hair care routine.

  1. Intense Hydration

Argan Oil is an excellent moisturizer for both the hair and scalp. Its high content of fatty acids and vitamin E helps to lock in moisture, preventing dryness and brittleness. This can be particularly beneficial for those with dry, damaged, or chemically-treated hair.

  1. Frizz Control

If you struggle with frizzy hair, Argan Oil can be your saving grace. Its nourishing properties help to smooth and tame frizz, leaving your hair more manageable and easier to style.

  1. Damage Protection

Argan Oil is known to protect hair from heat damage caused by styling tools, such as flat irons and curling wands. It also shields hair from environmental factors, such as UV rays and pollution, which can contribute to hair damage and color fading.

  1. Improved Elasticity & Strength

The nutrients in Argan Oil can help improve the overall health and strength of your hair. By nourishing and fortifying hair strands, Argan Oil can increase hair elasticity, making it less prone to breakage and split ends. 

  1. Enhanced Hair Growth

Argan Oil is known to promote healthy hair growth by stimulating the scalp and nourishing hair follicles. The antioxidants and essential fatty acids in Argan Oil can help to repair damaged hair, creating a healthier environment for new hair growth. If you’ve been experiencing hair loss, an Argan Oil shampoo such as Neu Moisture Shampoo might be a good option to consider.

Neu Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner – Infused With Argan Oil

To fully harness the power of argan oil for hair, using an Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner is an excellent way to incorporate this nourishing ingredient into your hair care routine. Our Neu Moisture Collection includes the Neu Moisture Shampoo, Neu Moisture Conditioner, Neu Moisture Masque, Neu Moisture Argan Treatment Oil and and Neu Moisture Instant Fix, all enriched with both Argan Oil and Shea Butter to restore your hair’s moisture balance and deliver essential hydration deep within. 

The Neu Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner are perfect for daily use, and the Masque is an ideal weekly hair treatment or as often as needed. The masque should be applied after you shampoo. Simply massage it from your scalp toward the hair ends, allow it to rest for about two minutes and then rinse. 

As a leave-in treatment, Neu Moisture Instant Fix is a lightweight, leave-in treatment that will nourish and hydrate your hair and allow the benefits of Argan Oil to continually benefit hair long after you leave the shower. Not only will it help detangle the hair, but it also helps seal the hair cuticle and delivers heat protection before styling. This product can be used daily, and you simply lightly mist damp or dry hair and then style it as usual. 

We also recommend treating hair post wash with a few drops of Neu Moisture Argan Treatment Oil. This lightweight, clear treatment oil made with pure Argan Oil and is essential for use on wet or dry hair. This product nourishes and defrizzes while restoring your hair’s luster and providing a luminous shine. To use, simply distribute one or pumps of the oil through mid-lengths and ends.
