Over the years, we’re certain you must’ve heard of a gazillion ingredients that are meant to do wonders for your hair. I know I have. Tried em out too! However, there is 1 ingredient on the block that certainly has magical effects on your hair. It’s a personal favourite of mine because ever since I’ve started using it for my hair, not only has it been shinier but also healthier and softer. Yep, I’m talking about argan oil. It’s been quite the buzzing ingredient the past few years, no?

Argan oil is an ingredient that finds its roots in ancient Moroccan culture. It’s extracted carefully from the kernels of the argan tree. Famously known as “liquid gold”, argan oil is a versatile ingredient for both, your hair and your body! But we’re here to talk about how beneficial it is for your tresses. Including this in your haircare routine ensures that components like antioxidants, Vitamin E and linoleic acid are infused into your locks, moisturising them deeply. Now, along with this they also work effectively to tame the frizz and flyaways, making your hair smoother.

Here are 5 products that do a wonderful job at infusing some argan oil goodness in your locks.

St. Botanica, Moroccan Argan Hair Oil

Usually, hair oils tend to have a heavy formulation which is sticky and weighs your hair down. Especially ones with argan oil, however, the St. Botanica Moroccan Argan Hair Oil is an extremely lightweight one. Apart from the versatile argan oil, it comes with coconut, jojoba, almond and castor oil along with ingredients such as bhringraj and amla. Personally, I enjoy a classic head massage with this and leave it on overnight. The best part is, it’s so easy to wash!

It’s no secret that our locks need some revitalization from time to time, especially after the kind of aggressors they deal with on a daily basis. Nashi Argan’s newest Essential Energy Shampoo comes power-packed with essential oils and amino acids that fortify the hair. It repairs your hair from deep within and strengthens it too. What I’ve also noticed with this shampoo is that it also changes the texture of your hair. In just 2 washes, I defo noticed so much difference.

I’ve been an OGX girlie for the longest time and the Renewing + Argan Oil Of Morocco Conditioner was the product that made me one. This conditioner is as nourishing as it could get, with ingredients like argan oil, avocado oil and coconut oil to soften strands. It has quite a rich, creamy formula that works effectively to detangle knotted hair. This particular hair conditioner suits every hair type, yep even curly and chemically treated hair.

I have a personal soft spot for hair masks because when my hair was fried from all of the colouring, they were what saved it. It’s always best to opt for hair masks that contain ingredients that are as enriching as argan oil. This is because they do a better job at repairing damaged hair. The Argan Oil Hair Mask from Pilgrim is an all-rounder with its abilities to smoothen hair and battle hair fall at the same time. It also works to boost the volume of your hair and make it appear bouncy rather than flat.
