Argan oil will nourish your hair, working magic on damaged or colour-treated locks
2 tbsp argan oil*
3 drops rosemary essential oil
3 drops cedar wood essential oil
3 drops lavender essential oil
1 Pour the argan oil into a small bottle and add the essential oils. Shake well and use a tiny amount on the tips of wet hair after washing to bring moisture to dry ends.
2 Or use it as an intense conditioner to add shine. Massage the mixture into tired, dry and lifeless hair. Let it absorb for 15–20 minutes before shampooing.
Why it works
Argan oil is highly moisturising, nourishing and rich in antioxidants and vitamins A and E. It stimulates cell activity and boosts circulation. Rosemary is antibacterial, regulating sebum levels in your scalp. Cedar is anti-inflammatory. Lavender has potent skin-soothing powers and helps heal wounds.
