Why Should You Consider an Argan Oil Conditioner?

Extracted from the fruit of the argan trees of Morocco, Argan oil is a sought-after and precious beauty elixir that is used in hair and beauty products.

In hair care, Argan oil is used in products such as shampoo, hair treatments, and heat-defense sprays. When used in a conditioner, Argan oil helps nourish and strengthen hair, leaving it soft, smooth, and manageable. With its unique blend of antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamin E, Argan oil conditioners effectively treat common hair concerns.

Compared to other hair care products, organic Argan oil has several benefits. It is non-greasy and lightweight. It also absorbs easily into the hair and scalp, helping to tame frizz and add shine. Moreover, it can prevent further damage caused by heat styling, coloring, and environmental factors.

Other hair care products, such as hair oils, serums, and hair masks, are also used to nourish and strengthen the hair. However, they may contain artificial ingredients, synthetic fragrances, and preservatives, which can be harsh for some people. In contrast, Argan oil is a natural elixir that serves as. a gentle option for harsh products.

Argan oil is an effective hair care product that can provide plenty of benefits for the hair and scalp, making it a good choice for those looking for a natural alternative to traditional hair care products.

Finding and Making the Right Argan Oil Conditioner for Your Hair

When using this magical oil, it's important to ensure that you use 100% pure and organic Argan oil. Not only does this secure that you are getting the full benefits of the oil, but it also guarantees that the oil has not been changed by any harmful chemicals.

Rinse-Out Conditioner

Commonly used to condition and nourish the hair after shampooing, the rinse-out conditioner is designed to hydrate, nourish and soften hair. Rinse-out conditioner is typically used to repair hair damage, such as split ends and static flyaways, leaving your hair with a healthy shine and improved texture.

Simply apply the rinse-out conditioner to the hair after shampooing, focusing on the mid-shaft and ends. After rinsing, follow with hair and scalp oil for the best results.

Pre-Shampoo Conditioner

Pre-shampoo conditioner, also known as pre-poo, is a hair treatment that is applied to the hair before washing it with shampoo. The purpose of a pre-shampoo conditioner is to provide an extra layer of protection and nourishment to the hair before the cleansing process begins.

Pre-shampoo conditioners are typically used by those with dry, damaged, or chemically treated hair. They can also benefit those with curly hair types, as the added moisture can help define curls and reduce frizz.


  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of organic (Extra Virgin) Argan oil
  • 1 tablespoon of honey


  1. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat.
  2. Mix the melted coconut oil, Argan oil, and honey together in a separate bowl.
  3. Apply the pre-shampoo conditioner to dry hair.
  4. Wash your hair thoroughly. Follow up with your regular shampoo and conditioner.

Leave-in Conditioner

Leave-in conditioner is a hair care product that is used after shampooing and conditioning to provide additional moisture and nourishment to the hair. This type of conditioner is applied to damp hair and then left in for a certain period of time, as the name suggests - especially good for frizzy hair!

Start applying a leave-in conditioner to damp and clean hair, starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots. You can either use your fingers or a wide brush to distribute the product evenly.


  • 1/4 cup of aloe vera gel
  • 2 tablespoons of organic (Extra Virgin) Argan oil
  • 1 teaspoon of honey


  1. In a small bowl, mix the aloe vera gel, Argan oil, and honey.
  2. Apply the leave-in conditioner to damp or dry hair.
  3. Do not rinse out the conditioner, and style your hair as desired.

Conditioning Treatment

Conditioning treatment is a method of treating hair to improve its overall health and appearance. It involves using specially formulated products that penetrate the hair shaft to nourish and strengthen the hair from the inside out.

There are different types of conditioning treatments available with their own unique benefits. Some of the most popular types include:

  • Deep conditioning: This type of treatment is designed to penetrate the hair shaft and repair damage caused by heat styling, chemical treatments, and environmental factors. It is typically left on the hair for a longer period of time to allow the product to fully penetrate the hair.
  • Protein treatments: Designed to strengthen the hair, protein treatments work by adding the protein back into the hair shaft, perfect for people with damaged or weak hair.
  • Moisturizing treatments: Commonly used to add moisture back into the hair, a moisturizing treatment makes you more pliable and less prone to breakage.

Argan Oil Hair Mask for Rough Hair

  1. Mix the Argan oil, egg yolk, and honey in a bowl.

  3. Cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic wrap for at least 30 minutes.

  3. Add the melted coconut oil, honey, and Argan oil to the mashed avocado and mix well.
  4. Apply the deep conditioner to your hair, making sure to cover all of the strands.
  5. Use a wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair and distribute the conditioner evenly.
  6. Cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic wrap and let the conditioner sit for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Rinse your hair thoroughly.

Why Should You Make Your Own Organic Argan Oil Conditioner?

It is Pure

Organic Argan oil is free from harmful chemicals and pesticides, making it a safe and natural choice for hair care. It is typically cold-pressed, which preserves the oil's natural beneficial compounds, giving it a higher quality than non-organic Argan oil.

It is Effective

Organic Argan oil is sourced from the kernels of the Argan tree, which is grown in Morocco. This oil is known to be pure and more potent - especially when it is extra virgin (cold pressed only once), providing legendary benefits to the hair.

It is Sustainable

Organic farming practices are more environmentally friendly as they come from primarily women-owned cooperatives in Morocco. Using organic Argan oil supports sustainable agriculture and helps to preserve the Argan tree forests. Supporting organic farming and fair trade practices also helps to support the local communities that grow and harvest the Argan nuts, making a positive impact on their lives and livelihoods.

Where to Store My Organic Argan Oil Conditioner?

While we love using tinted glass to store most of our skincare and beauty products because of how unreactive it is and because we keep our conditioner in our shower, we would recommend plastic as the safer and best way to go.

Most importantly, plastics are lightweight, shatter-resistant, and have various convenient sizes and shapes. They also come with a range of accessories, including caps and dispensers. You can buy conditioner dispensers through Amazon.


Benefits of Organic Argan Oil to Your Hair

Moisturizes Dry Hair

One of the main benefits of organic Argan oil is its ability to deeply moisturize dry and damaged hair. This oil is rich in fatty acids, which can penetrate the hair shaft and provide long-lasting hydration. As a result, it can reduce frizz, breakage, and split ends, leaving your hair looking and feeling healthier.

Promotes Hair Growth and Prevents Breakage

Organic Argan oil is also known to promote hair growth. Since the oil is rich in vitamin E, it acts as an antioxidant that helps stimulate blood flow to the scalp. This increased blood flow can help to nourish the hair follicles, leading to stronger and healthier hair. Furthermore, its high content of fatty acids can help to strengthen hair, making it less prone to breakage.

Enhances Shine and Softness

Another great benefit of organic Argan oil is its ability to enhance the shine and softness of your hair. The oil can help to smooth down the hair cuticles, making your hair look smoother and shinier.

Best Hair Care Products with Organic Argan Oil

Sometimes it's just not possible to make our own product. It takes a bit more work than we have time - and in those instances, this is what we look for:

  1. What is the preservative? And where is it on the EWG Scale?
  2. How much Argan Oil is there? While it's impossible to know, seeing where it falls in the order of the ingredients provides a hint.
  3. What kind of Argan Oil is it? Is it Organic? Is it Extra Virgin? These help point to the quality of the ingredient used.

That said, these are a few of the products we like.
