Kristin reviews a multi-purpose beauty tool - Josie Maran 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil
Josie Maran Pure 100% Argan Oil ($14 for .5 oz bottle) has so many uses. It protects, moisturizes and nourishes your skin and hair, keeps cuticles clean, makes a great foot and bath soak, AND softens dry elbows and knees. Josie Maran's website says "Historically, Argan oil has been used to treat acne, stretch marks and skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis! ". She even has a whole Argan Beauty page devoted to this amazing oil! I used Josie Maran's 100% Pure Argan Oil 15ml bottle solely on my hair and face for the last month. I loved the little dropper that measured to the exact amount needed to put all over my face, neck and decolleté...or my entire head of long thick hair. You will need about half that if your hair is short or thinner.

I doubled up the Argan Oil impact by using a Ricky's Arganplus comb with Argan oil built in it. Jenni already reviewed these here. I love them! The Rickycare ArganPlus comb I used was the the wide comb on sale right now for $3.49 here! I highly suggest picking one up for the summer. The wide comb allows you to spread the Argan Oil throughout your hair evenly. I have thick long hair, so a whole dropper full is needed. However, even if you have shorter hair, your hair will eat it up! It just depends if the initial greasiness bothers you or not. Just keep combing through for a few minutes and that greasy texture will go away. After combing it through and letting it soak in and dry, your hair will just be moisturized, shiny and healthy! It has done wonders for my split ends in the last couple weeks without getting a haircut! I like to do the Argan Oil treatment with semi-wet hair and use especially if I am at the beach or pool. I just give my hair a rinse with fresh water first to wash away the salt or chlorine and comb the oil right through to keep my hair hydrated and prevent dry ends. After I comb it through my hair, I let it dry and keep it on my hair until I take a shower in the evening and wash it out. If you only use a few drops, this oil is great to protect your hair from styling and blow drying. I prefer to use it as more of a treatment though.
