Winter can be a tough time for our tresses. Between moisture-sapping cold weather and drying central heating (not to mention all that party-season styling and ramped-up blow-dry time), it's a no-brainer that during winter, our hair needs a little extra help to stay healthy. Enter: argan oil.
Though not a newbie on the scene, argan oil has more than proved its worth as a hair repairing powerhouse, and endless numbers of hairstylists still swear by it for good reason. As Kevin Hughes, global ambassador for Morrocanoil, explains, "Argan oil helps to restore strength and elasticity to hair with amino acids, antioxidants and vitamin E. It also decreases ripping and tearing when combing through damp hair and allows the tool to glide through rather than snagging and damaging hair further.
"In the winter months especially, your hair can become drier due to the weather conditions, so I would recommend using an argan oil (such as the Moroccanoil Treatment) as your foundation product."

"Hair is made up of protein, so it's important to make sure you're using products that are packed with the same stuff to help to strengthen and reduce breakage," Hughes tells us. Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask ticks all the boxes in that respect, so slather it on for a weekly repair session.
