Argan Oil and Its benefits

By May 5, 2011health + fitness

We here at Thank God I’m Natural love learning about new products that will not only benefit our hair, but will just have a positive snowball effect on our entire body. Argan Oil is just that. Today we’re joined by guest blogger and owner of All Things O’Natural Dominique Goosby Harris. The Tennesse native is about to school us why Argan Oil is the new hotness.

Hola Chicas/Chicos..I pray all is well.
So, what’s the rave about Argan Oil? What is the rave about this Moroccan goodness that have naturals in an uproar. It’s actually been called ‘liquid gold’ by beauty experts due to its benefits for healthy hair..Well, Argan Oil is an oil that’s actually been around for ages, however, it’s popularity skyrocketed over the last few years due to manufacturing companies on the hunt for ‘exotic’ ingredients to add ‘label appeal’ to their product as a ploy to get more money from consumers. And of course, those are usually products that contain synthetic chemicals and will have Argan Oil waaaayyyyyy down at the bottom of the ingredient’s list. But despite of all that, it is an oil to absolutely rave about. It’s so great, it is one of the wonderful ingredients that is in my O’Natural Natty Butter, and I must say, it is like ‘liquid gold’. And, when combined with other natural ingredients, it is a small piece of heaven. It is difficult to extract, so it is not the cheapest oil , hence why it is sometimes found in products in unpretentious amounts. So, let’s just take a look at all of the benefits of this oil.
