Honestly I wouldn't recommend it, but it just depends on your hair. I normally don't have a problem with frizz, but I noticed after using this product that my hair became more frizzy. I'm a lifeguard, so I've been in and out of the pool all summer and I've never really had a big problem with frizz, but I've noticed it so much more lately after using this product. It really helped to noticeably define my waves, but also gave me frizz both with and without the use of other products. I'm disappointed to say the least! I guess it all depends on the hair type!

Yes! This has done WONDERS for my hair. My hair is past my waist but above my tailbone. I put my hair in a ponytail, add 5 drops to my hands, rub them together, and finger comb my pony tail. I do not put the oil anywhere above the ponytail holder because the top of my head gets so oily.

I was originally introduced to argan oil as something use you use in your hair. I put in on when my hair is wet before I blow dry and straighten it. I'll then put just a little on the ends to help with the damage. It really helps control heat damage. Just keep it away from your scalp to avoid greasyness!

answer 14
What is the texture of your hair? Is it baby soft and fine or is it textured/coarse? If you have soft/fine hair, you probably don't want to use this as a styling/finishing product. Use it more as a hotoil type treatment for deep conditioning and then wash out (or leave in overnight and then wash out in the morning). If your hair is textured/coarse, then obviously, like any oil sheen or hair oil, you have the type of texture of hair that can use straight oil on it as a finishing/styling product. Use your best judgement, it IS oil! If your hair has the softness of a blonde haired 2nd
grader, it might not be in your best interest to use an oil as a styling product.

Yes, you can use it for your hair. The biggest thing is not to use TOO much product. A few drops in the palm of your hand is all you need. I have very dry hair and can use it from scalp to ends. If you tend to be on the oily side, try just applying to the ends to stave off split ends for a few weeks longer. Hope this helped!

Argan Oil does help balance your skin, especially if you are using harsh acne treatments. These tend to dry your skin out, because the alcohols kill all the bacteria on your skin. Try this... I have been doing this and it has worked like a charm. Get some tea tree essential oil, get some cotton balls, and get some Argan oil. First, wash your face with a mild face cleanser, or a natural one. Then, take your cotton ball and make it wet with water (about 5-10 drops). Then drop a couple of drops of tea tree essential oil (make sure it's ESSENTIAL OIL). Gently use the wet cotton ball as your toner all over your acne prone skin. Once that has dried, take a couple of drops of Argan oil and apply it all over your face. I apply extra at nighttime, especially under my eyes. Use this for acne-prone skin, and to keep oily skin balanced. The tea tree is an anti-bacterial which you will be able to feel as soon as it touches your skin. Use it only once a day for normal to dry skin, and no more than twice a day for oily skin.

Argan oil can be incorporated into your anti-acne skin care regimen, but if you have a serious acne problem you really need a multi-pronged approach that includes products with salicylic acid (to clean out pores) and benzoyl peroxide (to kill bacteria). Argan oil can help with acne because it has anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties (many acne fighting ingredients can strip your skin of hydration which causes your skin to produce more oil and break out). People with severe acne should of course consult a skin care professional.

I've used proactive, murad, neutrogena and others to try and treat my acne with no results. Argan oil, though, has definitely reduced the number of pimples on my face. It may seem counterintuitive, but using products that strip away your skin's natural oil only causes your skin to produce more oil to compensate. This balances your skin and helps it produce less oil.

I have fair (red head) & sensitive skin which breaks out easily so, I too, had concerns yet I found this product healing. Since it's oil is extracted from the seed of an organically grown tree there may be someone who is sensitive to that plant. However for me, that was the "BIG PLUS" -- an ORGANIC beauty product !!! It may be an "OIL" but it's not oily nor greasy! It absorbs quickly into the skin & only 2 drops were needed (when applied to damp skin) to cover face & neck area.
So to answer: TRY IT for yourself -- see if it works for YOU!!

It is 100% pure argan oil, no mxiers. It has been deodorized to remove the natural smell. To dodorize oil it is heated to 464-518°F for 30 to 60 minutes, so it hs been processed, which may or may not have affected the good natural properties of the oil. Organic natural argan oil has a "nutty" smell, kind of like fresh green greek olives.

Really the only difference is the josie maran name, the extraction process might be different but if its organic it will still be good for you. My local health food store sells this same organic argan oil for the same price and you get twice as much. so I buy the josie maran light oil for when i need it and then get regular organic argan oil at my health food store when i feel like i need a little extra moisture like winter time. Look around at health food store near you im sure you can find a better deal at the same price. And the bottles most of the time tell you where its from and how its extracted.

personally, I would think of tea tree as a treatment. Thus, going on before your moisturizer. Make sure your tea tree is diluted because it can be SUPER strong if just using in the essential oil form. I like to put it in a bottle mix a few drop with rose water, then mist all over face after cleansing. After, put Argan oil on where you get driest, if you suffer from acne you tend to have oilier skin, this can be more geared for drier skin types so put it in the drier areas ( around eyes, mouth, nose) then if you need more moisture add to other areas. :-)

first of all i dont think any over the counter product is a miracle cure for what sounds like a question you need to ask your doctor or skin specialist...this is very good for the skin, it cant harm it, it is all natural...

I wouldn't use this for sunburn or insect bites. Those are injuries to the skin..you need to treat them as injuries...

Sunburn: Best treatment for that...LIGHT sunburnL Aloe straight from the plant is best....more severe sunburns....check with your Nurse or MD.

Insect bites: Topical antibiotic or cortisone cream...ONLY over-the-counter...UNLESS the insect bite is from a spider or tick and does NOT improve. Some spiders (brown recluse) can case serious injury and are better assessed by your MD or Nurse.

I'm not sure about burns, for that I have found cooled black tea, such as tetley tea works wonders in taking out the sting and redness after a sunburn. As for mosquitoes, I've heard Skin so soft from Avon is amazing. Thankfully, we don't have mosquitoes around here.

I've been pleased with the results on my sensitive skin. I would highly recommend the oil with sunscreen for your cheeks. As you age, skin will look bad, without fighting sun damage now.

It worked on my mosquito bite and the scrathes left by my playful kitty on my arm. It literaly reduced the healing time by at least 60%. It is definitely worth a try!

I have really sensitive skin and from what I can tell so far, this oil has really helped any/all of the ailments I've experienced. I don't know about itching like from bug bites, but it definitely soothes burns and the like. It seems to have serious healing qualities... I tried putting it on a cut on my palm today and it stopped it from stinging and already my hand's mobility has increased dramatically. It doesn't hurt to open my hand at all!

Question
When do I use this product?
Is this used as like, a moisturizer or could I also use it along with foundation over it.

I'm just wondering where would I fit it into my regime.

I definitely want to get glowy skin for the summer.

If you like to have a dewy glow, use by itself or mix with your current moisturizer. If you like to be matte all day, then you can just use it at night. I use it during the day with my regular moisturizer and at night by itself. I've even got rid of my night eye cream and just use this.

In the morning after I clean my face with a wet face towel, I use the Argan Oil every where I am dry AND under my eyes and shape my brows with a bit. I put on my moisturizer (w/spf) and then I put on my foundation (it goes on so smoothly). My skin looks so fresh, sun-kissed, smooth and flawless all day! This stuff is amazing. At night I use a bit in the same places and put a dab of night cream on. Hope this helps!

I use it as a moisturizer on my face, but I have also used it on my scalp and ends of my hair when they are dry (i.e after a weekend full of sitting in the sun, swimming in the pool or ocean, etc.).

I haven't tried the product yet, but I am planning to and I reconmend you to get the travel size no matter what. I did the math and if you buy travel sizes you get more for your money. I think it is saving like 30 cents if you were to buy travel sizes as apposed to the bigger size. However, the jumbo size is better value (a $112 value for $98). So even so, it really isnt that bad to do travel sizes still.

I used it twice a day on my face and after my bath on my hands and arms. It took about 2 months to use it all. You only need to use a drop or two.

I've had it a few months and it's about halfway gone. I put it on most nights. Just a couple drops does the trick for me.

It will depend on how much you use. I have been using a drop every night for six weeks now and I have over 90% of the product still remaining.

I only needed about 3 drops a night so it lasted me about 2 months. Definitely long enough to decide if you want to invest in the larger size (which I did).

It will last about a week if you only use about twice for hair, and daily for face. Depends on how much you use.... it does not take a lot. Of course, the big bottle is a better deal, but this is a nice travel size!
