The universe responds in miraculous ways to our pleads.
In my case, it was a naturalist magazine, one of those magazines that I never pay too much attention to.
But in big letters, one of the titles announced: “How to get rid dandruff with argan oil.”
I wasn’t going to read it, but I was so desperate.
Dandruff is the worst!
Can you imagine anything worse than horrifying white dust staining your dark clothes?
Can you imagine anything worse than a horrible itchiness on your scalp that doesn’t go away in the sun nor in the shade?
If you can imagine it, it’s because the same thing is happening to you that I suffered through: dandruff and itchy scalp.
Because it isn’t just about the esthetic issue.
Dandruff disrupts your life.
It almost drove me to see a psychologist.
I started having self-esteem issues due to the dandruff.
I felt dirty all the time.
I didn’t wash my hair very often because my hair follicles would produce less sebum.
So, I looked dirty.
And in addition to looking dirty, there were some unpleasant smells emanating from me.
At first, I was the only one that noticed them.
Until one day, Federico, one of my best friends, insinuated something smelled bad while we were enjoying the final episode of “Black Mirror.”
I ran to get another round of popcorn and to spray myself with perfume on my hair.
I was so discouraged.
I didn’t want to do go out anywhere.
I threw away my dark clothing.
Until one of those life things happened, and a magazine got into my hands that talked about natural products.And it announced with great fanfare about how argan oil was able to eliminate dandruff and even calm itchiness on the scalp.
So I read the whole thing.
But three, four and five times.
And you know what?
It gave me results.
I finished off my dandruff thanks to argan oil.
And if that wasn’t enough, after a little bit, the itchiness on my scalp went away.
Do you want to know what I achieved?
I’ll tell you.
I’m sure that you all know what dandruff is.
I don’t want to get into medical explanations, so I’ll simply say that dandruff is produced due to the accumulation of dead cells on your scalp.
Since an excess of dead cells is produced, these obstruct the hair follicles producing constant irritation and later, itchiness on the scalp.
Let’s declare war on dandruff thanks to argan oil.

Why argan oil works to finish off dandruff
Argan oil is rich in vitamin E, proteins, phenols, and has high levels of important fatty acids like oleic acid and linoleic acid.
Also, it’s an incredible moisturizer, and it has the capacity to restore damaged, opaque hair and leave the hair with a healthy shine.The key for the oil to be effective is to use it in small amounts and to work it into the hair and scalp.
If you are still worried about argan oil being greasy for your hair, you don’t need to worry.
Argan oil is a type of oil that we call “dry oils” and it absorbs instantly into the hair creating a radiant shine without oily residue.
And the best thing is it is good for all types of hair, from extremely fine to thickest hair.
Now, let’s get to the important part.
How can you use the oil to get rid of annoying dandruff?
You should always apply the oil after washing your hair and drying it with a towel.
With barely wet hair, place two or three drops of oil on the palm of your hands and rub them together.
The water molecules that are already present in your hair will help to distribute the oil uniformly over the length of the hair.
Start by softly massaging your hair, starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots.
This method will allow the oil to moisturize the hair and the scalp better than if you apply it to completely dry hair.
Use small amounts.
Just three or four drops is enough and will keep your hair from looking greasy.
Always keep in mind the amounts can vary according to the length and density of your hair.
The best advice is to always experiment and see what amount of drops of oil works best for your hair.
But in this case, I can assure you that less is more.
How to use oil to calm the itchiness on your scalp
I know that it’s horrible to feel that your scalp itches and you can’t scratch it like you would like.
After all, people will think that you have lice.
That’s the last thing you want!
But the oil will also relieve those annoyances.
To get this, once a week, apply the oil to your hands and rub it to massage your scalp.
After, use a comb or brush to uniformly distribute the oil.
Wrap your hair in a towel for 30 minutes.
Wash your hands and let the hair dry naturally.
Do this process one or two times a week and I assure you that in few weeks, you will notice less itch on your scalp.
Intensive argan treatment
You should simply take a few drops of the oil in your hands and rub it softly into your hair, from the middle of your hair to the ends.
Avoid the oil getting in contact with your scalp.
Because the idea is to control the greasiness of the hair without interfering with the work of the hair follicles, which are already collapsed with excess sebum.
Let the oil sit for about twenty minutes.
After, wash with a sulfate-free shampoo, if possible made with natural ingredients.
4 secrets to choosing a good quality and natural oil
As in the whole cosmetic industry, many times people want to scam us.
And they sell you natural products that in reality, aren’t natural.Remember that for argan oil to be effective, it has to be 100% natural.
To differentiate between natural oil and that which isn’t, pay attention to these points:
- It shouldn’t smell, because it’s cold-pressed
- Also it’s called “liquid gold.” And this makes us think of a gold smell
- No debe tener olor, porque está prensado en frío
That’s how it should be.
Gold and almost translucent.
- It’s not sticky
It is absorbed rapidly, on the scalp and on your skin.
- Read the labels
Generally, it should always say “100% organic and pure.”
But not all labels say the truth, right?
The oil comes from a legendary plant in Morocco, whose seeds are cultivated exclusively by Moroccan women.
Many that’s why I like it so much.
Also, I noticed that my hair is softer and shinier, and my split ends are repairing themselves little by little.
And if that’s not enough, every time I buy the naturally pure argan oil, I feel like I collaborated with a community of Moroccan women and with their practice of sustainable harvest.
Who was going to say it?
Thanks to argan oil, would will end up collaborating with the planet.
And you, have you ever tried liquid gold to combat dandruff?
