Agave Vs Argan: Which Is Better For Your Hair?

It’s the battle of healing oils! Today, so many beauty brands feature argan oil as a key ingredient, or as an important component in their beauty line. It is dubbed "liquid gold" in the beauty world for a reason; it does just about everything, and the moisture it delivers is unparalleled. But if you're new to the beauty game,  you've probably just heard about the new healing oil treatment in the market. That is Agave oil. 

Both oils combat frizz, protect from heat, and add amazing shine. But we wanted to know, what exactly is the difference between these oils? Which of these oils should we use for hair and skin? Is either one better than the other? Well, let's find out!

You may have heard a lot about the wonders of argan oil before. Native to Morocco, this super oil comes from the Argan Tree. It's very versatile, renowned both as a rich gourmet ingredient for health, as well as an age-old beauty secret. It also contains very high levels of vitamins, ideal for helping to treat many skin problems.

Even better, it can be applied to your whole face and body, hair included, and is often added to other products—just add a few drops of argan oil, mix well and apply liberally. To add more to its benefits, argan oil is also touted as an effective anti-aging product, helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. It's no wonder this oil is said to be highly in-demand!

On the other hand,  Agave oil is best known as the source of tequila, but we’re mostly intoxicated by its ability to make hair noticeably smoother and shinier. Its extract is the key ingredient in this healing oil treatment created by Beverly Hills hairdresser Fernando Romero. Agave plant sugars hydrate and help preserve hair color, perfect for all hair types. This heavenly-scented product is also packed with plenty of other natural botanicals like coconut, vanilla, and sunflower to nourish and transform hair.
