Argan Oil

Except for episode four of season one in our video series, we don’t usually talk much about grooming here at Put This On, but I wanted to make a quick plug for argan oil. Argan oil is a light, clear oil derived from the seeds of fruits grown on argan trees. As the marketing literature goes, Moroccan women have traditionally hand pressed these seeds to draw out vitamin-rich oils, which they then use for cosmetic and cooking purposes. (I’m sure nowadays, the process is probably done industrially by machines, but that’s probably not going into any marketing pamphlets). In the last ten years or so, the product has also become incredibly popular in the US. 

Admittedly, the oil is typically used by women, but there’s no reason why men can’t use it as well. There’s nothing “gendered” about it. If you have thick, dry hair like I do, it’s amazing for conditioning. All you need is to shower as you normally do, then dry your hair off with a towel. With your hair still somewhat wet, put about a penny-sized amount of this stuff in your palm, rub your hands together, and then run your hands through your hair. You can do this while playing Gerardo’s 1990 hit single “Rico Suave,"although that’s technically not necessary.

This oil is better than any conditioner I’ve used, and comes highly recommended if your hair often feels coarse, thick, or overly dry. It’s easy to apply, doesn’t leave a greasy residue, and keeps your hair from frizzing up or splitting at the ends. You can usually find it at a local hair salon, on Amazon, or on eBay. Something from Pura D’or will be more “pure,” but also more expensive, while something from brands such as Agadir or DermOrganics will be cheaper, but will also be mixed with other ingredients. Whichever you choose, just make sure you get the leave-in treatment kind. Seriously, this stuff is amazing.

ugh. going to go take a shower. I’m going to try this new shampoo and conditioner, Dermorganics. it’s vegan and sulfate-free =] i hope I like it. then I’m going to bed (in other words, I’m going to read Choke until i fall asleep). thank you for reading this completely useless text post =]
