I use argon oil on its own when the weather is right for my hair and I feel like giving my hair a break.. But on most days I seal with argan oil (use it on wet or damp hair to seal in water to keep hair moisturized) any way I use it it works great for my hair... Over the argon oil u can leave it or put gel or mousse over...Also if ur hair is looking dull or frizzy u can scrunch it into dry curls or smooth over ur hair..
