What are your thoughts, experience, Argan Oil? (Topicals & Shampoos)

posted by HyperHair E-mail, Owego, NY, 01.03.2013, 18:29

"It is beneficial to have long and healthy hair. I just heard about that never tried it myself."

Good Day & Thanks for the response!

Yes it is beneficial to have long and healthy hair... especially if you're in the 50 range and looking for a job. I read an article yesterday, that finding employment gets very difficult at around that age for several factors that I won't elaborate on... but one of the suggestions was to take care of your hair, have a nice style, and color it to get rid of the grays.

I want to try the Argan Oil, but it's a little pricey, although it seems, in reading about it, that a little goes a long way. As many other natural remedies, it's reported to have many benefits for skin, scalp, and hair. It seems like it would be an Okay purchase in that it can be used for several applications. It's very light, and absorbs quickly.

You can get Pure 100% Argan Oil, No Additives, from a bulk supplier on Ebay for $17.25, 8 Oz.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/261137162649?var=560172506422&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

I have a concoction of it that my girl gave me. It's called Creme of Nature Argan Oil, sold as a hair care product. It's not pure 100% Argan Oil Only, as it has other stuff in it. It's better to have the Pure stuff and one needs to be careful because some advertising is mis-leading and will say "contains 100% pure Argan Oil"... which can mean that the Argan Oil contained in the "mixture" is 100% Pure... and not that the bottle is full of ONLY 100% pure Argan Oil. Make sure, if you get it, that it states, something to the effect that it's indeed 100% Pure, and that there are no additives or "carrier oils" whatsoever.

...while I was hunting hair care products I came across this:

"2 MONTH NUTRIFOLICA COMBO HAIR LOSS REGROWTH REGROW GROW Shampoo and Treatment"
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-MONTH-NUTRIFOLICA-COMBO-HAIR-LOSS-REGROWTH-REGROW-GROW-Shampoo-and-Treatment-/271163636981?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f229cbcf5

I'm going to try it and put the Argan Oil experiment on hold... although I may still get the Argan Oil for my skin. I used to be a fix-it, maintenance, repair tech of various disciplines... and recently had 3 major surgeries... so I have a lot of war wounds... I'd like to try the AO (argan oil from now on) on my scars... and generally as a skin product, while trying the Nutrifolica. Go read the listing... I found it very interesting, and is being advertised as a better substitute for Minoxidil.

This is what I received from the Seller:
General
Minoxidil topical is generally well tolerated. Dermatological adverse events are the only side effects reported more commonly as compared to placebo.

Cardiovascular
Edema, salt and water retention, pericardial effusion, pericarditis, tamponade, tachycardia, and angina have been reported with oral minoxidil. Patients with underlying heart disease may be at increased risk for these or other cardiovascular adverse effects.

Rarely, cardiovascular side effects have included edema, chest pain, blood pressure changes, palpitations, and changes in pulse rate with minoxidil topical therapy.

Local
Despite low levels of systemic absorption, in one study of 35 men using either topical minoxidil 2% twice a day or placebo for 6 months, minoxidil was associated with cardiac changes, such as significant increases in left ventricular end-diastolic volume, cardiac output, and left ventricular mass.

Systemic side effects are uncommon since very little minoxidil is absorbed after topical application. In one study, the serum levels after 2.5 mg twice a day oral versus 2% twice a day topical minoxidil were 32.8 and 1.7 ng per mL, respectively.

Exacerbation of hair loss/alopecia has been reported.

Dermatologic
Rare cases of generalized hypertrichosis have been associated with topically applied minoxidil. Eczema, irritant dermatitis, and allergic contact dermatitis have also been reported.

Hypersensitivity
Nonspecific allergic reactions, hives, allergic rhinitis, facial swelling, and sensitivity to minoxidil topical have rarely been reported.

Nervous system
Headache, dizziness, faintness, and light-headedness have been reported with minoxidil topical.

Gastrointestinal
Diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting have been reported during treatment with minoxidil topical.
SIDE EFFECTS: Burning, stinging, or redness at the application site may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor or pharmacist promptly.If your doctor has directed you to use this medication
