I know argan oil has been all the rage for the past 5 years or so, and I'm a huge fan myself, but have you ever used jojoba oil for your hair and skin? Similar to argan oil (aka moroccan oil), it's really lightweight so while it is very moisturizing, it also isn't heavy at all and a little can go a long way. Jojoba oil apparently replicates your skin’s natural oils which explains why it can be so great for your skin and hair since it is most similar to it's natural properties. I have friends who swear by it for treating acne or scars as well. The great thing is that you can find it just about anywhere, and since you only need a few drops of it for your skin and hair, you don't need to buy huge amounts of it.
I alternate between using argan oil and jojoba oil on my ends every day (you know, to keep things interesting ;). It's the first thing I apply to my hair after I wash it and I also apply it before blow drying it to protect my ends from the heat. Plus it smells so good when it's blow dried into the hair!
