Argan Oil is extremely beneficial for dry, damaged hair. Argan oil conditions the hair while strengthening the follicles. It will also help reduce the on-going damage and split ends caused by long, chemically-treated hair.
If you have high porosity hair, the percentage of moisture brought in by the oils will be greater than that of someone with low porosity hair. This is because Argan Oil only penetrates to the first 4 layers of the hair shaft and so the below the hair is susceptible to dehydration.
If you have fine hair, make sure to get a shampoo that is very gentle on the hair. ArtNaturals is sulfate free so it doesn't contain harsh detergents nor silicone to weigh down the hair.
This shampoo and conditioner set smells amazing & is designed to target the moisture balance of your hair. The idea is to leave your hair soft, shiny, more manageable & a lot more healthier. After just the first wash, the hair feels thick and hydrated, as if you've just got back from the hairdressers.
The Moroccan Argan Oil in this shampoo is naturally from Morocco, which is a region in Northern Africa where the oil from the Argan tree is cultivated. The Argan tree (Argania Spinosa) is a broad-leafed evergreen tree that produces different mono- and poly-unsaturated fatty acids and is high in anti-oxidants. The oil from the Argan tree is 100% pure and cold pressed from the plant. This oil is called Virgin Oil and is considered the purest and highest grade available.
The Argan Oil in this shampoo is far superior to other oils because it contains a fatty acid called Oleic Acid. Oleic Acid is one of the most bio-available fatty acids which is necessary for the body to produce the coenzyme Q-10. Coenzyme Q-10 is crucial to muscle, organ, and cell energy generation.
This shampoo also contains Calendula extract which is extracted from the Calendula flower. It contains powerful antioxidants like phytic acid, tocopherols, tocotrienols. It's an amazing group of phytochemicals that protect the hair from UV damage and prevent free-radical damage done by the sun. Calendula extract is also a natural hair color enhancer and can help get rid of brassy or yellow tones.
