Reviewing Argan Oil for Healthy and Tangle-Free Hair

woman with frizzy hair
Looking for a solution to end dry and frizzy hair? Need to get the tangles out quickly? Let's review tips for using Argan oil to grow healthy hair.

As we get older, our once long locks of lusciously thick hair may start to dry out and get frizzy. Sometimes it seems that the only way to keep our hair healthy-looking is to keep it cut short. If you're like me, you may want to keep your waist-length braids to the end of your days. And, yes, I'm talking to the guys, too!

When my hair started showing signs of middle-age frizz, I went to a high-priced hair stylist for some help. She explained that the aging process causes our skin to sag and wrinkle. It also causes our hair to become dry and brittle.

Argan Oil Rejuvenates Hair to a Healthy Shine

The high-priced hair stylist suggested an expensive conditioning treatment and a high-priced bottle of Argan oil. I paid the price and left the salon a poorer, but happier girl. I never went back for another the expensive conditioning treatment, but I kept massaging the Argan oil on my scalp and long locks.

I have since changed brands of Argan oil. I admit, it was the price that hit my pocketbook a bit too hard. I now apply a small bubble of Renpure Argan Oil on my hair two or three times a week. A little goes a long way.

Aragn oil has been a part of my hair care routine for 6 years and I love the result.

Argan Oil Takes Out Tangles Without the Tears

Monday's post by Dawn Rae about how she uses her BUFF hair stocking to prevent Jeep Hair reminded me of our Harley riding adventures through the back roads and over the city streets of our hometown. By the end of a ride, my hair is always a mess.

It doesn't matter if I braid my waist-length locks or twist them under a skull cap, the result is always the same. Twisted knots of tangled hairs that are impossible to comb.

My solution is to pour a little dab of Argon oil in one palm, rub my palms together and gently massage through the tangles. With some gentle coaxing, a rat's nest of knotted hair turns into long and silky locks once again. No tears and no clumps of pulled out hair.

Reviewing Tips for Long and Healthy Hair

My hair has grown half-way down my back for as long as I can remember and I have always looked for easy ways to keep my hair looking clean and silky. In the 1970s, I watched an interview with a hair stylist that specialized in long hair, extremely long hair. Long hair was the Big Thing back then. All the girls and guys were growing their hair down below their knees and this stylist explained that long hair has special needs.

Here are a few things I learned from that TV interview:
  • Long hair should not be washed every day. Wash long hair every 3 to 4 days to prevent dryness and split ends.
  • Wash long hair with a mild shampoo. Concentrate the shampoo on the scalp and give the ends a quick wash.
  • Put conditioner on the hair when it is wet. Concentrate the conditioner on the ends, leave in for a couple of minutes and rinse out.
  • Trim the ends regularly. Hair grows faster and thicker when the split ends are cut.
  • Avoid hair dryers, hot curlers and curling irons. These hot items dry out the hair and cause it to break off or fall out. Instead, wrap or twist hair up into a turban while it is wet and let it dry that way.

Help Your Hair With Argan Oil

I love the way Renpure Argan oil makes my hair feel and makes it easy to run my fingers all the way through my mop of hair. I gave my mom some Argan oil and she loved the way it made her gray hair shine. She also loved the way it turned her dingy gray hair to a bright shade of gray and took out that yellow tint that gray hair sometimes gets.

If you have suffer with dry hair, I think you'll really like Argan oil.

  1. I will have to try this. In the 70's my hair was past my bum, but now it's just past the middle of my back. When I mention cutting it hubby has a mild fit so maybe argan oil will help me let it grow a little more.

  2. Tangle free hair would be awesome! I will definitely have to try the Argan Oil. My hair is shorter now than it was even a few years ago, but I still get horrible tangles in my hair and feel like I am pulling out half my hair every time I comb it. Thanks for the wonderful review and introduction to the product.

  3. I am so glad that you mentioned that it works nicely on gray hair! I am going to try this for sure.

  4. So far I've not had a problem, but will definitely remember this if I do.

  5. As I've let my hair grow longer, I'd like something to reduce tangles. I'll keep this in mind.

  6. I have some and I've used it!, when the weather takes control of my curly hair this product works well - in fact, I think I have a small bottle in purse still - when I need to tame the mane, this works for me.
