I posted a few weeks ago about using argan oil before colouring and perming to see if anyone had any feedback. Some replies indicated that adding argan oil to hair colour had had a positve effect on the colouring. No one had any idea about using it before perming. I had been planning a perm for a while and I started using argan oil on my hair a few weeks before. It made such a difference to my hair. It felt soft and silky without being oily. Prior to my perm I treated my ends with the argan oil while my hair was wet, my hairdresser wound the perm then applied the lotion. I was really nervous about the outcome, however I couldn't be more happy. My hair still feels soft and silky with no frizz and my curls are really defined. I still use products for curly hair but I feel that ultimately the argan oil has protected my hair from damage.
