Can argan oil help with hair loss?

Many companies who produce argan oil based products use misleading marketing which can lead people to believe the oil can help with their hair loss.

Argan oil is not a cure for baldness, nor can it prevent it, however, the treatment can work to improve the condition of your existing hair, similar to how a good conditioning treatment would work. If your hair is healthy and nourished it can appear fuller and that is why some think the treatment can work to cure hair loss.  The oil cannot work to prevent or block the cause of male hair loss, if you use argan oil your hair will continue to thin.
