Since I have been coloring my hair, it's gotten a little dry. Especially at the ends. I had heard good things about argan oil and decided to try it out!
The One N Only Argan oil says that it is:
"A non greasy, alcohol free formula that is instantly absorbed into the hair, creating brilliant shine. Soothes the cuticle for silky and conditioned hair. Provides thermal protection and eliminates frizz."
I apply a dime size amount to my damp hair and comb through with a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute it. Then I style my hair and to add shine and tame any frizzies I apply a tiny, pea sized amount lightly through my hair.
I will also put this on wet hair, roots to tips, before bed. In the morning I style my hair as usual.
I would say that this product lives up to it's claims. It does not leave my hair feeling greasy or heavy and my hair feels smooth and is shiny. It has greatly improved the condition of my hair.
There are other uses for argan oil. It can be used as an all over moisturizer, cuticle treatment, anti aging treatment, and can even be used to help heal acne blemishes and acne scarring. Josie Maran cosmetics for example infuses argan oil into all of her products and sells 100% pure argan oil as well. The One N Only argan oil is not 100% pure so I don't know if it is effective in other treatments, other than putting it in your hair. It works as a moisturizer, but I don't know about any anti aging properties. However, a 1.7oz bottle of pure argan oil from Josie Maran is $48 verses $8.49 for a 3.4oz bottle of the not pure oil from Sally Beauty Supply (with a beauty club card). For that price, I'll use the One N Only thank you very much!
So, bottom line, I love this product and will most definitely repurchase when I run out. The claims out there about argan oil may not apply to this particular product, as it is not 100% pure argan oil. This is a great product none the less!
Have you tried any argan oil products? What has your experience been?
