Argan oil has always intrigued me because it is always talked about as being one of the best oils to use. I have only tried macadamia oil infused hair products and I am still using them now, so I am very curious about giving argan oil a try. Because I was only provided samples for this review, I won’t be able to say how well these products work in the long run but I will give my initial honest impression on both of the products. =) From now on when I do posts on products that are only one use, I will be doing first impression posts instead of full reviews! (Note: the images I used above are from the official website)
The writing on the packaging claims that argan oil has a powerful antioxidant effect, which helps to neutralise free radicals and prevent skin and hair damage. It is also supposed to provide deep moisture that is easily absorbed by the skin and hair to protect from dehydration to create a smooth, beautiful glow.

I’ve never tried any hair oils at all before so I was definitely very curious to try this out and I had high expectations too because I always hear about how great it is! I haven’t had a hair cut in almost two years so you can imagine how dry the ends of my hair must be! I don’t ever expect a product to get rid of them because that’s not really possible but my judgment will be on how much it can tame the frizziness and by how well it can minimise how dry and brittle it looks.
The oil is translucent in colour and is definitely not greasy at all after it has time to absorb, which was something I was concerned about before trying it out. It does take a little bit of time to distribute throughout the hair especially if you don’t rub it between your fingers beforehand so that is a tip I would like to share. However, after the oil absorbed, my hair was definitely noticeably more silkier and luscious looking. My hair also smelt heavenly afterwards, which is a major plus! The oil did a great job at minimising my frizzy ends and made them a lot more manageable! I’m really impressed by this oil! =)

The scent is quite earthy and natural such that it doesn’t smell like chemicals. It doesn’t smell the same as the oil, which I actually prefer the scent of but it isn’t bad at all. It definitely lingers in your hair so if it is a scent that you dislike from the get go then it would unfortunately bother you! The texture is comparable to a thick conditioner. When you apply it, it does not run down but it gets absorbed in the hair and will remain there until you wash it out after 5 minutes.
Immediately after coming out of the shower, my hair didn’t feel any different but after letting my hair air dry, it was noticeably silkier! My hair felt very soft when I brushed my fingers through it. However, my dry ends were by no means completely moisturised, but they did feel less brittle and more manageable than usual. In my opinion, the hair mask is very comparable to the Macadamia Oil Deep Repair Masque that I’ve been using for a really long time. They both leave my hair feeling really soft the next day and I love it! My hair can get really frizzy but this mask helps manage it really well. If your hair is dry and needs a bit of a pick-me-up, then this mask is worth a try!
