        A little goes a long way. I put on the ends of my hair before I use my flat iron. I get too much I rub on my neck chest and arms. Nice to the skin too and nice summer glow.

        Loved this product! Not greasy at all on hair. I have curly hair and found it to be the perfect product for removing the crunchy gel cast that can happen with some products. Did not find it to be very moisturizing on my skin though.

          I used to oil my scalp after washing my hair and then I added some on the hair tips then massage my head twisted the hair and allowed it to air dry but when it was dried the hair was rough and tough when I was taking down the twist. Oh my goodness I feel my hair ripping it was so hard I can't believe they made for hair jeez don't waste your money. I'm going to use on my heel maybe that works

            Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Argan Oil:

            I have tried virtually every skin care product with the hope that I would one day find one that works, but they have all made me break out in one form or another. I have used this argon oil on my face for the last two months, and for the first time in years, people have told me how great my skin looks. I have no blisters, no flaking skin, no redness. It's a miracle! And it's very affordable, too. I definitely recommend it, especially for those with super sensitive skin like mine.

            Use with moisturizer or alone

            By Trisstopher

            from Texas

            Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Argan Oil:

            I've used this with my moisturizer for an extra boost of hydration when I needed it. It does not break me out at all. One pump goes a long way so even though it is a small bottle, that's okay. I also put this in a old mascara tube I cleaned out along with some Vaseline and brush it on my eyelashes at night before bed. They have grown! I'm very happy with this product and will repurchase when I'm out. I'd say the bottle will last me 3-6 months since I use it more weekly and not daily!

                    I originally bought this for my hair, but when I started using it on my skin...holy hydration, Batman! I mix a few pumps with my IT Cosmetics moisturizer and my skin just glows. It appears to have reduced the appearance of my acne scars and worked a little magic on my uneven texture from scarring. I still use it on my hair with good results...but try it on your face and see if you love it!

                        A:

                        Our products are made with natural and organic ingredients. So color and consistency may vary batch to batch. The 100% Pure Argan Oil is made from only one ingredient "Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil", also known as Argan Oil. This ingredient is derived from the kernels of the Argania Spinosa which is a native desert tree in Morocco.

                      It doesn't say if it is cold pressed which for it to be any good it needs to be cold pressed. Also it's awfully cheap pure quality good argon oil is usually on the expensive side so why do cheap?
