It’s becoming an increasingly common occurrence for hairdressers who frequently use Moroccan Argan oil at their salons to notice (with a little surprise) that the same bottle of argan oil that they have in their salon is also sitting on their manicurist’s desk. It really shouldn’t be a surprise, though. Argan oil is one of those beauty supplies that is a panacea for most normal beauty issues, and it can be used in a variety of different ways when it comes to getting beautiful hands and nails. As a result, this unique oil has become increasingly popular in upscale nail spas throughout the world. Want to learn how to beautify your nails with argan oil? Here are some tips from a pro:
- A common issue that women face is rough cuticles right around the nail, and it can be caused by a variety of things. All you need to do in order to get rid of rough cuticles is to add a drop of argan oil to each fingertip before you polish your nails. Rub the oil in, and trim the excess cuticle using a cuticle clipper. The rest of your cuticle will be perfectly soft, and barely noticeable. Argan oil is also a great tool for women who have trouble pushing back their cuticles, simply because the moisturizing qualities of argan oil help loosen up cuticle skin. Wash off the argan oil before you go back to your daily routine.
- If your nails are brittle, chances are it’s because your nails are simply dry or malnourished. Believe it or not, argan oil can help with this, too. The rich naturally occurring nutrients in argan oil have been shown to help improve both skin and nail quality over time. All you have to do is massage the oil into your nails every day in order to have nails that will grow long and strong for weeks. You don’t need to use too much oil on your nails in order for them to reap the benefits of the vitamin E that it has naturally, either. All you need is a drop or two per nail. It is worth mentioning that you should do this when you do NOT have nail polish on your fingers. Nail polish actually inhibits a lot of the good enzymes in argan oil from getting absorbed by your nail.
- If you have nails that “shred” when filed, argan oil can help with that, too. The problem with nails that can’t be filed well is that they are too weak, and that they have absorbed too much water for them to stay strong. Argan oil actually helps keep nails at their optimum moisture level – not too wet, not too dry. As long as you massage your nails with a little oil regularly, your nails should stop tearing when the emery board hits your nail.
- Sometimes, nail polish has a tendency of chipping or breaking at the worst possible times. This is obviously due to a number of factors – one of them being that the nail polish is drying out to the point that it is losing its ability to withstand nail movement that is typical for people who use their hands. The best way to combat premature chipping or polish breaking is to use argan oil. After you have finished your manicure (or pedicure), let your nails dry. Afterwords, put a little bit of argan oil on top of each of your nails and let the moisture from the oil soak into your nail polish. This will help keep your polish looking good for days to come, and it will also help your hands smell great!
It’s no wonder why so many upscale nail salons, spas, and hair salons are picking up bottles of Moroccan argan oil. This unique beauty wonder potion has a way of fixing almost every major issue that professionals in the industry run into, and it’s remarkably easy for anyone to use. And, if it’s good enough for the best spas on Earth, it’s good enough for anyone, really. So if you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and pick up a bottle of argan oil as soon as you can – your nails will be sure to thank you.
