How to Get Beautiful Hair Inspired by Moroccan Beauty Rituals

Do you find that Moroccan women have amazing hair? You’re right! Follow these three rituals and say goodbye to dry hair and frizz for good.

Moroccans have thick, long, shiny hair. Yet, their hair is often dry by nature. How do they do it? They’re committed to different capillary rituals and pamper their hair with natural ingredients like argan oil. We’ll present some of their favourite rituals below.

Ritual 1: Use argan oil as part of your daily routine

Did you know that frizz is just a sign that your hair is thirsty and desperately looking for water in the surrounding air? If the cuticles (outer layers of the hair) are nourished, hydrated and protected, they stay closed, keeping your hair shiny and frizz-free. The secret for this lies in one of the best-kept beauty secrets of Berber women: argan oil, used for centuries to protect and nourish the skin and hair of the women of southern Morocco. This oil has extraordinary beauty benefits: filled with fatty acids (omega-6 and 9), minerals and vitamin E, a super antioxidant, it protects skin and hair from cellular aging while repairing, nourishing, and moisturizing it.

How to use it?

- In shampoo to make hair smoother

- In a conditioner to nourish and repair dehydrated hair

- As an oil, by massaging the scalp directly, making dry locks shine again and split ends disappear

Ritual 2: Pamper yourself with olive oil treatments

This vegetable oil, typical of the Mediterranean region, is also one of the favourite ingredients of Moroccan beauty treatments. Rich in omega-9 and vitamins A, K, D and E, it helps soften, tone and nourish both skin and hair.

How to use it?

- In a mask to give dry hair a hydration boost.

- As an oil, massaging the skin of the scalp without rinsing, nourishing hair from the roots to the tips.

Ritual 3: Gently perfuming your hair

For centuries, Moroccan women have used rosewater and orange blossom to delicately perfume their bodies and their hair. As a bonus, both of these liquids have cosmetic virtues: rosewater has firming, toning and calming properties and orange blossom relieves and softens the sensitive epidermis.
