Use argan oil once a week to moisturize and repair your hair

Since it’s a light oil with a high concentration of fatty acids, it easily penetrates your hair fiber, reaching the very core.

And from there, it repairs your hair by providing amino acids, vitamin E, and antioxidants.


What is  important is that you use it once a week, leaving it in overnight . If you use it once a week and leave it in overnight, after two months you’ll see your hair is now healthy.

  • Comb your dry hair and apply 8 to 10 drops from the roots to the ends.
  • Massage your scalp for ten minutes, then continue massaging the rest of your hair.
  • Wrap your hair in a shower cap to keep the heat in and protect your pillowcase with a towel.
  • The next morning, wash your hair with warm water, shampoo, and conditioner.


If you want to promote hair growth, you should use argan oil three times a week

Argan oil contains fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamin E, which promote hair growth from the roots.

Why? Because these ingredients moisturize the scalp and nourish the hair follicles, where hair grows from.

In addition, if your scalp is dry and you have itching or flaking, the anti-inflammatory agents contained in the oil will help you with these conditions.


It’s important you use argan oil  three times a week and leave it on for twenty minutes. 

How should you use it?


  • On your wet hair, apply 5 or 6 drops of argan oil and massage the lengths for a few minutes. Then start massaging your scalp for a few minutes to stimulate blood flow and promote growth.
  • Wrap your hair up with a shower cap and leave the oil on for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner.


After a month of using the oil three times a week, you’ll see your scalp is moisturized and you won’t feel itchy.

As for hair growth, that depends on each person. Some women claim their hair grows up to two centimeters in one month thanks to the oil.

If you want to control curly hair, use argan oil twice a week as a styling cream

Curly hair can be difficult to control! Curly hair can often get out of control and then it’s difficult to comb and impossible to manage. And that results in hair with uncontrollable volume.

You can combat this issue by  using argan oil like a styling cream up to twice a week.  Now, in this case, it’s very important you use a small amount since you shouldn’t rinse it out.

  • Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner.
  • Drain excess water with a towel and apply 6 drops of argan oil.
  • Distribute it through your hair, using your fingers.
  • Wait ten minutes for the oil to be absorbed and comb through your hair.


You’re done! You can even leave your hair loose without any problem. Repeat this action twice a week until you see your curly hair is easier to control.

At that point, your hair will be completely repaired and healthy.


If you want to get rid of frizz, use argan oil three times a week as a leave-in conditioner

Frizz appears in dry hair, especially when you’ve used heat tools too much. This is because the heat from straighteners causes loss of natural moisture and cuticle breakage.


That’s when you’ll start to see frizz. While you can use a leave-in conditioner to combat frizz, you run the risk of making your hair stiff and dull.

But  if you use argan oil up to three times a week,  you’ll get rid of frizz and your hair won’t lose shine and movement.

How should you use it?

  • Wash, dry, and style your hair.
  • Put three or four drops of argan oil in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together.
  • Apply it from the roots to the ends, without pressing your hair so it doesn’t get oily.
  • Comb your hair again.

Apply argan oil up to three times a week and don’t rinse it out. In this way, you’ll moisturize your hair cuticles, getting rid of frizz.



Now you know how often to use argan oil on your hair. Keep in mind what you want to achieve with your hair.

Because if you overdo how often you use it, you can make your hair excessively greasy. And you could even cause dandruff.
