“My number 1 tip for using Argan oil is a simple one. I always use it on my hair when it's damp...”

My number 1 tip for using Argan oil is a simple one. I always use it on my hair when it’s damp, just before I start to blow dry it. I find the Argan oil makes it incredibly soft and silky when it’s dry. It’s really easy to use as well: after washing and towel drying my hair, I comb it through with my tangle teezer to get any knots out, then put some Argan oil in my hands and run it through from the mid lengths down to the tips, making sure I cover as much as possible. The trick is to not use too much of the product though as that can weigh down your hair and make it greasy instantly, so use just enough to know that it’s there.

If you’re worried about how much to use, always start with less just to be sure and then if you feel like it’s not enough after you’ve dried your hair, you can always run some more through the lengths after. This will soften the hair and tame any flyaway hairs as well! It really is a miracle product and transforms my own unruly hair to no end! I love it!

“It’s always super handy to keep some in your handbag for any hair touchups, and has become a statement go-to product...”

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.

Thoroughly massage Argan oil into your feet every night before going to sleep. Be sure to concentrate more on your heels. Give your feet a nice squeeze to relieve them of any aches and pains. You can also apply argan oil to your face if you have very dry skin.

“Once a week I apply Argan Oil through the bottom third of my hair to really nourish the hairs”

My top tip for Argan Oil is to use it regularly in your hair care routine. Once a week I apply Argan Oil through the bottom third of my hair to really nourish the hairs. This helps to keep hair healthy and shiny and prevents those annoying split ends! If my hair is looking particularly dry and damaged I like to apply Argan Oil over all my hair an hour or so before I go to bed, I then leave it over night and wash it out in the morning. This is like an intensive mask for the hair so should only be done when needed but it gives hair a really noticeable boost!

If you naturally have greasy hair you may be put off using an oil but by applying oil to your hair regularly your hair will minimise its oil production over time stopping it getting as greasy! Similar to using a facial oil in your skincare routine even if you have oily skin! Massaging Argan Oil through your hair also means your hands and cuticles get some much needed TLC too!

“My favourite way of using Argan oil is in a hydrating and exfoliating face scrub. The recipe is...”

My favourite way of using Argan oil is in a hydrating and exfoliating face scrub. The recipe is:

  1. 1/2 fresh lemon
  2. 1/2 cup Brown sugar
  3. 1 tbsp of argan oil
  4. 1 tbsp honey
  5. 1/2tsp cinnamon

Mix them and use once or twice a week on a clean and wet face (avoid rubbing eye area of course). Leave on skin for 5 minutes and then rinse with cold water and continue with your normal night routine. This type of face scrub is very helpful for combination/oily skin types, acne prone or in need of hydration! Cinnamon usually makes your skin tingle so you might need to add less or remove it completely if you don’t like it. It leaves my skin so hydrated and the argan oil and honey help reduce my break outs and oil. The days I don’t use the scrub I always use the Argan oil as a face lotion right before I go to sleep.

Argan oil is amazing for your hair. You can put it on damp hair after you wash it or put it on your hair once it’s dry, it really does improve your hair and leaves it silky smooth. My tip is to take it in the bathroom with you and after you shampoo, before you condition put a bit of oil on the tips of your hair. Once you have done this you can condition as normal. This seals it into your hair and leaves it feeling and smelling great! You can always use more after your hair has dried if needed.

“As a Mum-to-be, when stretch marks are starting to make an appearance that's when the Argan oil should too”

As a Mum-to-be, when stretch marks are starting to make an appearance that’s when the Argan oil should too. Pop a couple of drops into the palm of your hand (a little goes a long way) and massage into the area where the stretch marks are beginning to show. Trust me when I say, take time to do this.

Not only will it help prevent stretch marks but it also means you getting some pamper time. Pamper time can be hard to come by when your baby is here so make the most of it whilst you can. My stretch marks were all round the front of my tummy. I carried all to the front and my skin isn’t very elasticated.

“I find that I wake up with my skin looking super hydrated, plump and fresh! I also find it helps...”

I like to add 1-2 drops of the oil into my moisturiser or body lotion in the evening to give my skin an extra boost of hydration. I do this 2-3 times a week depending on the season and how my skin feels. I find that I wake up with my skin looking super hydrated, plump and fresh! I also find it helps create a much better base for my makeup, letting it go much more smoothly. It’s perfect for creating a radiant summer glow, but all year round.

“I have quite damaged hair from bleaching and heat-styling, so a product like this should really be part of my hair routine”

I’d definitely say my main tip is that a little goes a long way – it’s easy to get carried away with building up product, especially one with ‘nourishing’ features, but for someone with grease-prone hair like me, you definitely only need to use a very small amount to get results! I have quite damaged hair from bleaching and heat-styling, so a product like this should really be a part of my hair routine.

I have quite damaged hair from bleaching and heat-styling, so a product like this should really be a part of my hair routine. After 1 wash obviously results are not totally obvious to other people, but I think my hair genuinely did feel smoother, softer, and not so coarse!

“I also like to massage Argan Oil into my nail beds for a few minutes every few days to condition my cuticles. It really makes a difference!”

My number one tip for using Argan Oil is to slather it onto the ends of your hair and let it work its magic while you take a long, hot bath. The heat and steam help the oil penetrate the hair shaft. I sometimes leave it on overnight then wash my hair in the morning. My ends get super dry and damaged thanks to heat styling, so this is my absolute saviour. I also like to massage Argan Oil into my nail beds for a few minutes every few days to condition my cuticles. It really makes a difference!

“I find Argan oil a saviour for fly aways, particularly during the hotter and humid summer months. Argan oil is the perfect...”

A few years ago I remember hearing celebrities raving about the benefits of a new, natural wonder product – Argan oil! Intrigued to find out for myself whether this inexpensive and simple treatment could work for me I began to investigate further. Many people can shy away from the idea of using oil as part of their beauty routine for fear of it being too greasy but in fact I have found that using just a little product goes a long way and can avoid this problem (it also means your jar of argan oil lasts for ages!).

Having wavy (read slightly frizzy and a nightmare in unexpected downpours!) hair, I find Argan oil a saviour for fly aways, particularly during the hotter and humid summer months. Argan oil is the perfect leave in conditioner and I routinely add a few drops to my towel dried hair to help nourish it. This is particularly key as I also have coloured hair, as it can help replenish the some of the damage through bleach and also heat styling.

Another problem I suffer from during the opposite end of the seasons is dry skin and this is where Argan oil also comes into play! A small amount smoothed over the face (or as I prefer, mixed with your daily face cream or foundation) can work wonders to hydrate and give a natural, dewy glow thanks to its natural vitamins and fatty acids. I also use oil for my nail cuticles and dry skin on my hands to keep them silky smooth and encourage my nails to grow stronger and healthier.

“I also find that a lot of oils can get rid of my curls, which I don’t want- this is why I love Argan oil so much”

My number one tip for using Argan oil is for your hair. As a curly haired girl, I suffer a lot with frizzy, flyaway hair which gets dry so easily. I also find that a lot of oils can get rid of my curls, which I don’t want- this is why I love Argan oil so much.

It nourishes my hair and helps to smooth the frizz, while also keeping the curls. It’s also amazing even if you don’t have curly hair, as it helps to keep it nourishes and super soft. All I do is pour around a 10p size blob in my hands, rub them together and then put it in the ends of my wet hair after a shower. What’s not to love?

Argan oil has changed the way I treat and style my hair, nails and skin. From my hair treatment, to shampoos to styling products and creams, I regularly use Argan Oil on a daily basis. Argan oil is at its best without added extras, so my tip would be to buy it organically and use it in small doses. I suggest after washing hair using it before drying with heat and for myself personally, to moisturise my hands and finger tips.

“... perfect for anti-aging, reducing facial scars such as acne as it helps with cell growth and its an anti-inflammatory”

Argan Oil has many benefits, however my favourite use for this oil is on my Skin, in particular my face. My top tip is to use this each evening. The oil is bursting with natural ingredients and a complex amount of fatty acids which is a superfood to your skin keeping it hydrated throughout the night and into the next day. The antioxidants and Vitamin E are a great combination for anti ageing along with helping to reduce the appearance of facial scars by encouraging cell growth and acting as an anti inflammatory.

Argan Oil is known as a carrier Oil whereby you can add an essential Oil into it. I suffer with anxiety and often to relax and get a good night’s sleep. However, I found that by adding 3/4 drops of Lavender oil into the Argan Oil and then applying it to my face it makes me feel relaxed shortly after and I manage a good night’s sleep. Not only do I wake up glowing but I’m also refreshed!

My top beauty tip is using Argan oil for stretchmarks. You can rub it into stretch marks and the vitamin A and vitamin E will help to moisturise them and help reduce them over time. It can also be used to help to prevent them in the first place! For a touch of luxury, mix some brown sugar with Argan oil and massage it into your stretch marks when you’re in the bath or shower.

I give my hair and scalp a weekly Argan Oil treatment. All you need is a few drops of pure argan oil.  I simply rub the oil thoroughly between my palms and then comb my hands and fingers thoroughly through damp or towel-dried hair, making sure I massage it into the scalp and hair tips. This promotes a healthy scalp, encourage hair growth and to treat split ends.

“One of the best things about it is that it's completely safe to use around your eyes. In fact, it's actually really good...”

Argan Oil has become an absolute saviour in my beauty routine. I used to think it was just for hair, but I was so wrong! I now use it all over my skin including on dry patches, scars and on my cuticles. However, something that has been a complete game changer for me is using it as a makeup remover. Makeup is now made to last throughout all the tests that life throws at our skin, which means not all makeup removers are completely effective. Some makeup removers can even be quite harsh and drying on your skin.

Argan Oil is so nourishing and moisturising and it lifts makeup off your skin so easily. One of the best things about it is that it’s completely safe to use around your eyes. In fact, it’s actually really good to use around your eye area! It really helps to reduce puffiness and dark circles and keeps your eyes moisturised. It’s actually better at removing waterproof mascara than most other makeup removers I have used, which is great! My skin feels so firm and fresh after using it! It also feels great to use on your lips, which is perfect if you use too many matte liquid lipsticks like I do! It keeps your lips super soft and ready for the next lip product. Even if you don’t use it as a proper makeup remover, it’s great to use afterwards to make sure you haven’t left anything behind and to keep your skin moisturised and nourished. It’s such a simple thing to change or add to your beauty routine and it really makes such a difference to your skin!

“Argan Oil is the goddess of revival when it comes to hair for me. I personally use Argan oil two ways...”

Argan Oil is the goddess of revival when it comes to hair for me. I personally use Argan oil two ways; as a leave in conditioner, when my hair is needing a bit of TLC and also to detangle and smooth after washing my hair. To condition, I work the oil between my hands and smooth up to, but not all the way to the root, on my damp hair after a shower and leave overnight to give it time to work its magic.

In the morning I wash the oil off and rewash my hair to remove any excess oil, it blow drys like a dream after doing this. It really is amazing for treating split ends and leaving your hair smooth and shiny. I also use run argan oil through the ends of my hair after a wash, I find that it detangles my hair and leaves it smooth making it easier to brush! I have really thick hair and this works every time. I’ve noticed that after just a few uses in both of these ways my hair feels generally healthier and looks shinier. Top tip! Try and get a 100% Argan oil or as close as, the more pure the better it works.

“I also use Argan Oil as a cuticle treatment for my nails - several times throughout the day...”

I love using Argan Oil as a weekly deep conditioning treat for my hair. Before washing my hair, I apply the oil throughout the lengths and wrap my hair up in a towel. I leave this on for about 30 minutes and then shampoo and condition my hair thoroughly. My hair is left silky, soft and so manageable – I love it.

I also use Argan Oil as a cuticle treatment for my nails – several times throughout the day, I just massage a tiny bit of oil into my cuticles. My nails are now strong and really healthy looking.

“After a few uses I started to notice a difference in the condition of my hair, and I have never looked back”

My favourite use for Argan Oil at the moment is on my hair. I love to smooth it into my ends, to help restore my hair after using heat products. As someone who has bleached her hair for years, straightening can make my ends wispy and straw-like. This can be a nightmare if I am wanting a polished look for my hair. Since using Argan Oil on my ends 1-2 times per week, my ends have been more nourished and smooth, with a lot less fly aways. Sometimes I apply it before styling, onto wet hair, or sometimes onto dry hair once styled, to restore shine.

If my hair is feeling extremely dehydrated and unloved, I apply it to the last three-quarters of my hair, avoiding my roots, and use it as a mask. I wrap my hair up in a towel to prevent drippage from getting on my clothing. If I’m not particularly busy, I will leave it on for a good few hours, usually while I’m writing up blog posts, messaging it in every 30 minutes. I then wash it off in the shower with my regular shampoo and conditioner. I have found that this tip really helps to make my hair shiny and soft. Argan Oil can also be applied to the roots, however, I always choose to keep it away from this area as it is a little harder to wash out. I am so glad I discovered Argan Oil for my hair, because my hair was in really bad condition before. After a few uses I started to notice a difference in the condition of my hair, and I have never looked back!
