|Renewing Moroccan argan oil, £6.99/118ml, Boots.|
"This exotic precious formula of Moroccan argan oil spray instantly infuses hair with a sheer veil of shine giving colour and highlights a multifaceted glow while it helps to reduce split ends and tame fly-away frizzes."
So a few weeks ago I dyed my hair a lighter shade of blonde which has consequently led to my hair being a little drier and lacking in shine. I also straighten it regularly which has also led to dryness. After consulting fellow #bbloggers on Twitter, hair oil seemed the only answer. I've never ventured into this kind of hair care before, fearing that my hair would become a greaseball as it's quite short. However, my opinion has changed and now I'm coveting all sorts of hair treatments to help nourish my dry end!
So, I went and bought this totally blind. (ie, not reading any reviews!) I went for this one as it was the cheapest - hair oils are expensive man! This was £6.99 which I could just about stomach. (go on call me a cheapskate - I call it student budget...) It just seemed very handy in a spray bottle and wouldn't take up lots of space.
You can use this in numerous ways - spray it on your hair dry, before shampooing, before styling, after styling ... Endless way to use! I've been using this before I blow dry my hair and then over night to give my hair a bit of a conditioning treatment. I've also lightly misted it over my hair after styling for shine and softness. So has it worked I hear you ask? Well, yes. Apart from smelling absolutely divine it's left my hair feeling soft and manageable and I can now go three days without washing my hair for some reason! The oil doesn't even leave it feeling greasy or oily at all which is what I was so afraid of. My ends feel nourished after just a week of use and my hair has never looked so healthy. The only problem I've found is that I've used quite a bit up through the spray. I don't know if I'm using too much or if it is the spray bottle but it's gone down quite quickly. However, i won't mind repurchasing this as it's lovely! I have had a sample of the L'oreal Elvive miracle oil which I will buy next instead of this, as it seems a little more nourishing and I need to use less (the sachet lasted me ages!)
Safe to say I've been converted to hair oils and will shouting about them from the roof tops!
