Argan oil for a hair mask

Remember I had bought this mask for my hair but it didn't work out very well? I tried it again, as I had promised to Thalia, this time melting it first and applying it on almost dry hair. Well, it didn't really do me any good again. I don't know, but after washing the buttery oil off my hair, it still felt a bit sticky.

Had no choice but to make my own natural hair oil mask. My hair is very dry, I desperately need a haircut, but till then I definitely have to be more caring with them!


So, I just blended argan and avocado oil, which are very nurturing, with lavender high altitude, sandalwood and roman chamomile essential oils.


I applied the oil mask on dry hair and wore a plastic shower cap for 1-2 hours. I only used 20ml of the carrier oils (and I have long hair) and one drop of each essential oil. After showering my hair felt softer and shiny. And, oh boy I loved the aroma, which really lasted on my hair.

Photos are taken from here and here. I put them together.

I have never heard of Argon oil :-(
But girl, you gotta try jojoba oil! You already know its a wax and not an oil and its one of the best for hair...also rosemary essential oil or extract can add shine to your hair too :-) Rinsing with cold nettle tea can help weak hair :-)

OMG, I just had to unload here....lol

Argan oil grows only in Morocco.. it's well know for its nurturing and anti-aging properties, it's full in vitamin E and rich in antioxidants and it is widely used in medicine and cosmetics.

jojoba I have in oil...is indeed very good...I sure have to try it in as a wax as well..and with rosemary... :)
