Tracee Ellis Ross Swears by Argan Oil for Her Curls, Here’s Why


Kevork Djansezian

Curly, straight, fine, frizzy, 4C to 1A—no matter your hair type or texture, it could benefit from using argan oil in your routine.

Originally used in an ancient Moroccan beauty traditions, it’s become an important ingredient in beauty and hair routines because of its ability to do it all: hydrate, smooth, add shine, and soften. Argan oil, which is harvested from argan seed kernels, is filled with super-nurturers like essential fatty acids, vitamin E, and antioxidants.

Actress, entrepreneur, and Patron Saint of Gorgeous, Bouncy Curls, Tracee Ellis Ross loves argan oil so much that she launched her own version of it in her curl-centric haircare line, Pattern Beauty.

“I like to use the argan oil on my hair when it’s very wet for two reasons,” Ellis says about her own miracle-working blend. “One: I think it penetrates the hair cuticle better. Two: it doesn’t leave a greasy residue, as some may expect with an oil. I also like to cocktail it with my leave in conditioner also on wet hair for a little extra hydration.”

Justine Marjan, celebrity hairstylist who shapes the tresses of Chrissy Teigen, Ashley Graham, and Laura Harrier, who is also obsessed with the oil. “There are many ways to use argan oil in your hair,” Marjan says. “It’s amazing as a hair and scalp treatment before washing. You can also work a small amount of it into damp hair before blow drying as a leave-in treatment, or smooth a little through ends on dry hair for shine and hydration.”

Below, here are the 5 argan oils to add to your hair stash.
