My recent research has led me to finding oils that are better absorbed into my coily 4b hair. Type 4 hair is the worst at absorbing oils because of the coils, so any intense, deep-conditioning treatment, aids in helping with tangles and dryness. That's why Moroccan Argan oil has been on my radar - it's supposed to be the new super product in the natural hair and skincare world. Argan oil is noted for it's high amounts of vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and non-greasy feeling.
Well, pure Argan Oil is pretty expensive. I've seen 4oz bottles going for almost $16. The word on the hair blogs - a little goes a long way - so the price is relative to the use you'll receive. However, there are a slew of new products being released that contain Moroccan Argan Oil. Organix has an entire line of products containing the new super oil.
After I washed and conditioned my hair with Twisted Sister, I deep conditioned with the Organix product. Upon opening the jar, I saw the creamy formula pictured above. It was pretty heavy in my hand. The smell is very strong, almost too strong. Knowing that Argan Oil has a faint smell, this product by Organix has alot of perfume.
The directions say that you can leave the product on for 3-5 minutes, but the best performance is found when you wrap you heard with a hot towel and leave the product on for 15 minutes. I left the product on for about an hour. I wanted to make sure it really got in there.
The product washed out quite easily, there was a good amount of slip, but not enough to write home about. There wasn't alot of residue left on my hair, but the perfume smell was quite strong. My curls were looking plush, but definitely not as bouncy as when I use other deep conditioners. Detangling was pretty easy, but no big difference.
Actually there's not much actual argan oil in this product, it's listed as the one of last five ingredients on the list. I'm going to conclude that one may get the best benefit from using the entire line than so that you have more argan oil in the process.
- Great value
- Creamy mixture
- High fragrance
- Not enough Argan Oil
- Have to use entire product line to reap full benefits
