Looking for a solution to your hair and skin problems? Foxbrim's 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil is a great natural solution for most common everyday skin and hair issues. This oil is pure, ensuring you achieve your desired results without the worry of negative side-effects.

Foxbrim's Argan Oil is full of Vitamin E and antioxidants, which are great for treating and preventing acne, anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-inflammatory, and reduces dark under eye circles. It is also very moisturizing. The oil helps to prevent dry, brittle nails. You can also use this for your hair as it helps with dry scalp and promotes hair growth and repairs split ends. This is great for all hair types including color treated hair. Not only does it add shine, the argan oil works as an anti-frizz serum. It's full of essential fatty acids which will keep your skin elastic, preventing aging and wrinkles. Argan oil is a dry and lightweight oil. So it's not as greasy as other oils.

Used to improve the health of skin and hair, argan oil can be directly applied in its pure form. Alternatively, the oil can also be used as an ingredient in hair care treatments. Since a little Argan oil goes a long way, it will not lose any of its effectiveness by being incorporated in hair care treatments because its assets can be enhanced by the active ingredients of additional herbs. Argan oil is rich in fatty acids and Vitamin E. It works wonders in nourishing damaged hair, encouraging growth, and protects your hair from ultraviolet rays and environment pollution.

If your hair is dry, damaged, brittle, or over-processed, why not try a homemade deep conditioning treatment? You can repair our hair in the comfort of your home without having to spend a fortune at the salon. I made a fast and easy recipe and it left my hair so soft and shiny. This also help to restore my hair color.


Deep Hair Condition Treatment

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Shea Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Foxbrim's Argan Oil
  • 5-7 drops of Lavender Oil 



Instructions
  1. Put the Coconut Oil and Shea Butter in a microwavable safe bowl (Alternative: You can use a double broiler)
  2. Melt the ingredients in the microwave for approximately one minute or until thoroughly melted
  3. Let the mixture cool down
  4. Add Argan Oil
  5. Add essential oil(s)
  6. Whip together for a few minutes
  7. Let the mixture set until is starts to get firm and creamy (I let mine set for several hours)
  8. Distribute the treatment to clean, dry hair. Pay more attention to the ends of your hair
  9. Comb treatment through hair and let set for 30 minutes
  10. Rinse hair and shampoo and condition as normal







This hair treatment is safe, gentle, and natural. It's packed full of high-performing proteins and vitamins. I chose Lavender as my essential oil because it is good for hair growth and adds a pleasant fragrance You can substitute with which essential oil(s) will work best for you hair type.

I also use Foxbrim's Argan Oil in my conditioner every day. I apply a dropper full of oil to my conditioner in the palm of my hand. I rub them together to heat the argan oil. Then I apply to my hair while in the shower. I let the mixture set on my hair for approximately 5 minutes, then rinse as normal. Depending on how dry your hair is, you can also apply a very small amount to the ends of your hair after you towel dry your hair. If you tend to have oily hair, you may not want to do both of these. 

Another great alternative is simply using just argan oil as a hot oil treatment. This oil is very concentrated so a little goes a long way. Simply massage one to two tablespoons directly onto clean, dry hair until all strands are lightly coated. Cover your head with a shower cap. If you don't have a shower cap, you can also use a plastic bag. Wrap a towel or turban around the bag. It's best to have the towel dipped in hot water. After 30 minutes, shampoo as and condition a normal.

Another great use for this argan oil is for your cuticles. I like to apply a drop of oil to my cuticles daily. These keeps them moisturized and leaves them soft.

Argan Oil can be used safely in it's pure form. Its extremely versatile and can be used for lots of different benefits. 


If you are not 100% satisfied, Foxbrim will give you a full refund. You have nothing to lose!

Cleopatra's Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter in Ivory






This 100% Pure African Shea Butter from Cleopatra's Choice is rich in Vitamin A, E and F. It is a good daily moisturizer for multiple purposes. It is made with hand selected finest nuts of the Shea Tree in Ghana.


  • Vitamin A has soothing and hydrating properties which provide healthy skin collagen in order to prevent premature wrinkles, premature facial lines and premature slackened skin.
  • Vitamin E balances and normalizes the skin. It helps get the skin clear and healthy, particularly beneficial for dry or sun-exposed skin.
  • Vitamin F acts as a skin protector and revitalizer. It soothes rough, dry or chapped skin on contact and helps soften and revitalize dry or damaged hair.

Shea Butter is good for:
  • Treatment of dry skin, eczema, and minor burns. 
  • Pain relief from swelling and arthritis.
  • Improves muscle relaxation and stiffness.
  • Sunscreen, due to its rich content of vitamins E & F.
  • Treats dark spots, skin discolorations, stretch marks, wrinkles and blemishes.
  • Massages, diaper rash, and as a hair conditioner.



Clinical studies have shown that Shea Butter transforms the skin in as little as 4 to 6 weeks, into a softer, smoother and better looking skin. Used alone or in combination with other natural ingredients, such as butters and oils, is safe for use on adults as well as children's skin. Shea Butter does not clog pores which make its successful to relieve acne naturally.

Shea Butter is a supreme natural moisturizer with exceptional healing properties for the skin. Unrefined Shea Butter is ready for direct application to the skin without any processing. Unrefined Shea Butter can be very hard and sometimes it's not so easy to apply on the skin. Mixing it with other natural ingredients can make it even more appealing and convenient for easier application.

I wanted to make a creamier, softer Shea Butter for easy use. 
I used the following to make my whipped butter...

  • 8 oz. unrefined shea butter
  • 4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 20-40 drops essential oils (optional)
  • Mixing bowl
  • Electric mixer
  • 1 clean empty 8 oz. jar









  1. Before I got started, I made sure that my shea butter was at room temperature. 
  2. I then put  my shea butter in a bowl and mashed it with a fork
  3. I added the extra virgin olive oil and my essential oils
  4. Mixed on high speed with my electric mixer for approximately 3 to 5 minutes
  5. Added to my jar and sealed tightly 








I love this Shea Butter recipe. It has made the Shea Butter really creamy and a lot easier to use. This is my first experience with She a Butter and I am officially in love with making my own cream now. It was super easy to make. I like my creams a little more oily so you should adjust your oils according to your like.

Shea Butter's shelf life is approximately one to two years. It should be kept in a dark, cool place at room temperature or in the fridge.
