Argan oil! It’s the star component in MoroccanOil professional products. This extraordinary “super-ingredient” is derived from the argan tree, which is known to be indigenous only to the arid and often harsh climate of Morocco. For hundreds of years it was familiar only to the native people of that area.
As one of the only flourishing vegetation sources in the region, it is utilized as food, shelter and a medicinal cure-all, in much the same way neighboring Mediterraneans used olive trees and oil.
It’s as if Mother Nature took many of the great properties, afforded separately by other sources, and packed them all into a small fruit-covered nut on a tree in a remote place. And now, the treasure has been uncovered!
When seeing the rejuvenating, fortifying and styling capacity argan oil brings to beauty products, it’s no wonder that it is now embraced worldwide.
Argan oil contains natural moisturizers that help fortify and heal distressed and damaged hair. It adds a natural protection and a light hydration that can be applied to multiple hair types. The chemists at MoroccanOil have championed this versatility with formulas that tame frizz, reduce drying time, add shine, moisture and strength. There is truly something for EVERYONE, no matter the hair type or style.
Argan oil contains natural tocopherols (Vitamin E) and Vitamin F, which promote strength, protection and durability in hair and skin. It contains betacarotene, the natural healer found in dark leafy-greens and pigmented plants like carrots, pumpkin and sweet potato. It is found to be even more resistant to oxidation than olive oil, and shares this property with hair and skin when applied, helping to create a residue-resistant, light feel. It also contains the following fatty acids: oleic acid (omega-9, found in olive oil), linoleic acid (omega-6, found in cocoa/shea butter), palmitic (omega, found in palm oils), and stearic acid (omega, a natural softening agent).
As a food and food additive, argan oil is recognized as a combatant to obesity, cardiovascular disease and an aid to reduce harmful LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides. But don’t start swigging from your shampoo bottle yet!

Summer is coming to a close, and fast approaching is the season of candy corn, spiced cider and crackling leaves under foot. Visitors of the North will be traversing toward the land of perpetual summer– South Florida.
But, who says we do not, or cannot have a proper fall in a place where palm trees are always swaying and the soft swish of turquoise waves constantly call us? We’ve come up with short a list of reasons why locals, and those who join them this time of year, have every reason to celebrate the traditional aspects of the fall season.
5. We definitely dress up for Halloween, and our costumes won’t require long-johns underneath to stay warm.
4. We still get to enjoy pumpkin spiced lattes– only ours come over ice, and we sip them lying poolside.
3. We can take full advantage of the later sunrise, with a morning stroll on the beach– in our SHORTS!
2. We spend less time raking leaves, and can devote that time to fun and leisure.
1. We can still take hair color inspiration from the deep and rich autumnal palette– but don’t have to hide that beauty from the world under hats, scarves and beanies!
Just as the trees in nature shed their spring and summer growth in beautiful arrays of gold, burnt orange, deep rust, chestnut, mahogany, and each hue in between, fall is the perfect time to trim away any unhealthy ends, summer damage or overgrowth your hair has accumulated.
But, as the natural world lays dormant for winter until a spring awakening, you need not wait that long to reap the benefits of healthier hair. Take this autumn as an opportunity to bring forth the natural and rich tones in your hair color– and maybe even try a new look altogether. And if you stay in South Florida, you’re sure to find a bathing suit to match!!

We are in the last few weeks of Summer… but here in South Florida, Summer sun and highlights are possible all year long. The topic at hand is how to achieve truly natural sun-kissed hair color. It is important for the blonde tones to not overpower or end up brassy. The natural undertones shouldn’t be too dark or “blah”, drowning out your complexion. Our goal at Salon Bongini is to achieve perfectly natural highlights by taking the time to study your natural color and undertones. We will select the perfect color(s) and possibly a toner for you. There is a happy medium out there for everyone… somewhere between Marilyn Monroe and Janis Joplin.

Will Moroccanoil make my hair oily? Moroccanoil does not make the hair oily, it provides all critical vitamins and nutrients to make the hair smoother and more manageable. A small amount goes a long way. Those who experience oily hair are using too much of the product.
Quantity… The quantity needed depends on the client. The texture, volume and chemical treatments all play a part in the quantity. Highlighted hair will need more than “virgin”/untreated hair. Thick hair requires more product than those with fine hair.
