Product Review: Organix Moroccan Argan Oil

Price: $7.99

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.

  1. Funny enough I saw this yesterday but then thought nahhhh
    Let me try and use up some of my oils 1st before purchasing yet another oil!

    Jeni, I need tips on air drying using the scarf method….as it appears it only works on the roots to mid-section of the hair

    The ends still have that candy floss fluffy look. what am I doing wrong?

    Is there a specific product you use to tame the ends for air drying. Is there’s a technic to it? Or am I just being unrealistic thinking air drying can tame ends?
    Pls replyyyy

    1. One thing I've noticed is it's important to dry with a cotton t-shirt first. I've let it dry for about an hour and see for yourself what you think. It will still be slightly damp but about 70% dry. You can then put the scarf on your edges. What do your tips look like?

  2. I love this oil as well & I also use it the same way you do. It does live up to its claims

  3. Is it just me but I get really irritated when they describe this as argan oil when really it's silicone oil mixed with some argan oil. I love me some silicones but it just seems disingenuous somehow.

    On a different note I think that's why it doesn't weigh your hair down, straight oil may be a different story. Good review though so once my extraordinary oil is finished, I will put this in my list to buy.

  5. So I'm not the only one who isn't impressed with Organix shampoos and conditioners. I really wanted to like them early in my HHJ but they did absolutely nothing for my hair. Good review Jen.

  6. I totally agree with your review, Jenijen. There is another called Moroccan Argan oil. Love the product and its effect on my hair.

  9. I must agree with Alma here above. There is less oil in this product than there is chemicals.Argan oil is not listed until no 6 on the ingredient list. The only reason it is there is because it draws attention to the product. I am not sure how much that little amount will affect the hair. I think the main thing that makes the hair smooth and shiny are dimethicone and cyclomethicone.
