L'or D'afrique Moroccan Argan Oil July 21, 2015 10:15


Moroccan Argan oil also known as "liquid gold" is now taking the beauty and skin care product industry by storm. From just two companies taking advantage of this natural product, they have increased into over a hundred in 2011 and is still growing today.

Argan Oil Production

Organic Argan oil is extracted from Argan nut that is harvested  endemically from Southwestern Morocco. Before it was known as one of the best body shop products, it was used by Moroccans for  food as drizzle for pasta and bread dip.

Extraction of pure argan oil is done by local Berber Women. They do it by hand cracking nuts using two stones and then manually operating stone grinders since doing it mechanically was never successful.

Since Argan trees are only grown within the 10, 000 square meter region of Argan Forest in Morocco, UNESCO has declared it as Biosphere Reserve in 1998. Today, extraction is overseen by the Government through women's cooperative and due to its tedious process, it takes three days to produce one liter of organic Argan oil, making it high-end.

Now, what exactly are the benefits of Argan oil?

Argan Oil For Skin

It has thrice the amount of Vitamin E that is in olive oil and is also rich in Omega 6 fatty acids, Vitamin A, antioxidants and linoliec acid making it a good organic skin care product.

It rejuvenates skin, increases elasticity and repairs damaged skin cells. In fact the hands of Moroccan elders who extract oil are wrinkle free, soft and young looking proving that argan oil makes good anti aging skin care product, hence, considered as one of the best moisturizers for aging skin.

It also eases inflammation while hydrating the skin. It is easily absorbed and non greasy and helps improve acne by balancing facial oil, it improves psoriasis, rosacea, eczema and dry, itcy and flaky skin. It is also used to treat cracked heels and nails.

It contains phystosterols that makes scars, keloids and stretch marks less visible. In fact, one test showed that 38% skin improvement was noted after the subjects used argan oil twice a day for eight weeks.

Argan oil for hair

Aside from argan oil skin moisturizer, another of its product is the argan oil hair conditioner pioneering various hair care products online like argan oil shampoo that maintains PH level in the scalp thus makes for bouncy and nourished hair.

Pure argan oil is sold without additives and is non irritating and tames frizz, promotes hair growth and fixes split ends. It protects hair not just from heating and styling products but also provides sunscreen.

Being one of the best organic hair products, it can also be used as overnight moisturizer by applying it on hair and wrapping it until the next morning. This results in a more beautiful and glowing hair.

Aside from the personal benefits of argan oil, it has improved Morocco socio-economically since proceeds from sales worldwide are used for the education and livelihood of Moroccan women.

Do you know the Tips for Healthier Hair? July 16, 2015 03:26

diet for healthy hair l'or d'afrique

you are what you eat!

Like any organ in the body, hair is something that we all have . People tend to focus and spend a lot of money taking care of their skin, but they dont do the same about their hair. in fact they all tend to take care of them only when they visit a salon 3 or 5 times a year in treatment and style which are unhealthy or damaging to it, but what about the other 360 days?

so why people spend lot of time taking care about their skin but not their hair. the answer they think the shampoo and conditioner using on daily basis is enough, but not all products deliver results.

If you live an overall healthy lifestyle, then it might very well be enough, but for the average person there is much that can be done to achieve and sustain a healthy head of hair. The product you use and how you use it, your hairstyle and how you achieve the results, your diet and even weather can have an effect on the overall health of your hair.

How does diet affect your hair?

like fingernails, hair is also made from protein and need protein to stay healthy and grow. Zinc and other nutrients help with the health of your hair, with that been said if you overall eat healthy diet won't have much to worry about. but If you don’t eat  healthy diet then some foods that you can cycle in to help promote healthier hair.

Hair loss prevention: If you are struggling with hair loss, thats because you are not getting enough iron in your diet.Try mixing in some shellfish, dark leafy greens, soybeans, lentils, organ meats (like liver) or fortified grains like cereals and pasta. Tropical fruits high in vitamin C will help protect your hair from breakage and cinnamon will help with circulation.

Dull Locks: if you have dry hair and lost of shine, beta carotene can help restore that. also carrots, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe , mango and pumpkin are all wonderful source for beta carotene. also sardines, mackerel and salmon are full of omega 3 and fatty acids will help restore shine and promote hair growth.

To Promote Growth: greek yogurt is good for that. it has an ingredient that promotes blood flow in your scalp and rich with protein. also Eggs will help in this area.

For Thickness: if you aren’t getting enough protein in your diet it may start to thin. Try adding a lean poultry (chicken or turkey).

Full-ness:  you need to have enough zinc in your diet. Try oysters, crab, beef, lobster and some cereals to add more zinc. There are of course others that can work as well.
