For hundreds of years, Moroccan oil has treated hair that suffers from the intense heat of the Moroccan climate. Also called argan oil, the solution comes from a tree called the argan tree that grows in desert-like climate. The oil from this tree's fruit is used to protect hair from intense heat as well as to detangle and soften hair. When used on curly hair, Moroccan oil is effective in preventing frizzing and damage to the hair. Use Moroccan oil properly to keep your hair under control and looking its best every day.

  1. 1

    Shampoo and condition hair as you normally would. Moroccan oil works best when applied to clean hair because dirt or grease build-up will result in more difficult hair.

  2. 2

    Dry hair gently with a towel so that it is not extremely tangled but is not dripping wet. Hair should be damp when applying Moroccan oil.

  3. 3

    Pour some Moroccan oil into your palm, about the size of a quarter. Massage the oil into your hair with your hands.

  4. 4

    Apply more Moroccan oil as needed; the amount of oil you need will vary depending on the length and condition of your hair. Once you have worked the oil in, style as usual.

Tips and warnings

  • Using Moroccan oil before you colour your hair can extend the life of the colour in your hair. Rub about 5 ml of oil into your hair, and mix the same amount into the colouring solution. Continue with the normal colouring process.
