Additional Argan Oil Hair Styling Tips
If you have extra-fine hair, make sure that you use just a tiny amount of the oil. Doing so will avoid weighing down your fine hair and therefore add volume.
To make sure that you only use a bit of the oil, spray less than a drop on your palms and rub the oil first on your face and skin then use the leftovers to your hair.
Gently touch your hair from the ends to the roots.
For thick and curly hair, use a generous amount of the oil if you want your lovely curls enhanced.
Use a clean towel to remove hair wetness until it’s only damp.
Take one section of your hair and then rub Argan oil starting from the ends.
It is best to do only small sections for a better curl.
Once done applying the oil to all of your hair sections, style your hair as you please.
