Product Review: Organix Moroccan Argan Oil
Purchased At: CVS (can also be found at Ulta and Walgreens)
Promises: This exotic precious blend of Moroccan argan oil penetrates, moisturizes, renews and creates softness and strength while protecting your hair from harmful styling heat and UV damage as it gives you smooth, sexy tresses. It's the perfect indulgence for soft, seductive, silky perfection.
Directions: Apply a small amount of to palm, rub hands together, than apply evenly to surface of damp (towel dried) hair working through to ends.
Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Argania Spinoza (Argan) Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Extract, Parfum, Yellow 11, Red 17
My Assessment: Right off the bat, let me say I'm a rebel because I've never used this oil as the instructions indicate. I've only used this on dry hair, never damp, but even with my misuse, this is my favorite Organix purchase so far. It's a very light oil that absorbs very well. I have been using it at least every day since the day I bought it (some time back in May I think), either to seal or just apply it to the length of my hair and it's never weighed my hair down. I also like that a little goes a long way. When applying it to my hair, I section it in half and only use about 4 drops per section. It has a silky texture to it and provides a nice shine. The way I feel towards its scent is pretty neutral-I just don't think anything of it. It reminds me of the way CHI Silk Infusion smells (like mens cologne), but a weaker version. It lives up to its promise of smoothing hair, leaving it silky, because after of few days of use, it's how it makes my hair feel. I think Organix makes better serums and oils than they do conditioners and shampoos so this is a keeper for me.
