Nature has given us a solution to our bad hair days in this magical oil and we should desist from looking for synthetic solutions.

Traditionally the Moroccan people roasted the Argan kernels and used the oil produced to treat skin diseases. Now, as you can see there are fewer other oils that have the backing of history. There are other traditional medicinal uses like healing burns and curing rheumatism-(. I may not have all the details on the medicinal value of these oil but am very excited about the moisturizing bit.) Further, they used the oil to also protect their skin and hair from aging.
