I was on holiday in Morocco 4 or 5 years ago and went to a place where they produce Argan Oil. I can't remember specifics, but I know the little shop for tourist baiting selling their products was full of toiletries (soaps, lotions, etc) and foodstuffs (dips, infused-honey and other things with added Argan oil), both made from the oil, as well as things made from the wood of the trees...
So, based on that vague memory I would say you're looking for something with it as an ingredient, rather than the pure oil.
I use argan oil. 1 or 2 drops into my hands and rub the palms together then run through my wet/damp hair before blow drying. You can use it on dry hair too like a serum but I find I dont need to if I use it before blowdrying - and I have very dry ends.
I think you can buy pure argan oil - this is the stuff that really works, rather than products that have it as an ingredient. It only comes from Morocco - my mum just went there and brought some back. Guess you should be able to gt it on internet
My hairdresser gave me some Matrix Biolage Delicate Hair Oil to try - the main ingredients seem to be olive oil and argan oil. I've been using it instead of serum and am loving it so far - hair is manageable and glossy and I no longer need to straighten every day. Hurray!
