Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Weightless Healing Dry Oil Review
Guest Review By Apurva (Medium Skin Tone, Combination Type)
If you’re still an Argan oil virgin – even the term, god save you girl! Morrocan oil or Argan Oil is the new “it” thing to own in Beauty. Move over Chanel and Gucci, it’s time to strut your oil. Okay, I know I’m just creating too much drama, but seriously you can’t live without trying it.
I own a bottle of pure Argan oil, but it’s so precious (read: cost me half my soul) that I use it sparingly. I was on the lookout for a good serum for my crazy unruly frizzy mane, and I walked into Walgreens (local pharmacy store) as a part of my quest. I found an arsenal of fizz control promises, but as I shed hair as fast as Poonam Pandey sheds her clothes, my eyes were trained to find something organic. Of course everything contained stuff I could never pronounce and I had little hopes of finding something close to natural. I walked into the Organix aisle and victory! I found a whole section of almost natural products

Does it really work? : I’ve been using this weightless oil for about a month now. It’s not as awesome as I would have wanted it to be, but it works. Just a drop of natural Argan oil is enough to smooth your hair, but with this product, I almost always spray a million atleast eight times or so to make my hair stay. I once had a photoshoot with my friend, and my hair was at it’s worst. I didn’t want to use the straightening iron because it kills my hair, so I decided to use this product. I sprayed like a terrorist with AK-47 all over my hair. I smoothed out my hair with my fingers, running through to make sure it’ reached everywhere. I used a wide tooth comb to comb through, and no kidding, my hair looked smooth! Again, it won’t tame everything, but it helps you achieve the natural look. Expect your baby hair to still flyaway and the effect to wear off after five or six hours. It really does feel extremely light, provides moisture to your parched hair and seals in the shine. Also, I never use it on my wet or damp hair because it just gets lost. I wait till my hair is just freshly air dried and then use it. I feel it works the best then.
It says it’s “renewing Moroccan oil” but that’s just a part of it. It consists of – Cocoa seed butter, Shea Butter and Argan oil. It sure is weightless and dry, so no amount of spraying will make you look greasy. It has a beautiful golden colour which always catches the sparkle from sunlight! It’s not tested on animals, and I know that’s a huge plus point for a lot of consumers. About the healing properties, I didn’t really find this oil to be healing in any way. My hair looks like a nest once the product wears off. I’m stressing again, it’s NOT a serum, it doesn’t work like Livon (I miss you sooooo.. seems like it’s been forever since you’ve been gone, Oh come back now…) but I’m satisfied.
I have prejudices against creams in my hair, so I almost never buy them. I have nightmares that I will have greasy, yucky roots and parched ends and I will look like Kajol from Baazigar.
- Lightweight and dries easily.
- Not sticky at all – however much you apply.
- Not a lot of chemicals.
- No animal testing.
- Tames frizzy hair decently.
- Easy to use.
- Helps with parched look of hair.
- No healing properties – it claims so.
- Effective for five to six hours.
- Not travel friendly.
- No “gloss” as it claims.
(It’s a great product for being a drugstore brand)
Price: It’s available at Purplle.com for Rs 785. Internationally it is $7.99 for 4 oz. or 118 ml, retailing at 5.99 at almost all locations (ULTA, Walgreens, CVS)
Recommendation: If you’re looking for an actual healing oil or a super frizz control which magically makes your hair look slick, skip this product completely. It doesn’t do anything on those lines. It’s a great lightweight product if you’re aiming for the natural controlled hair look. A lot doesn’t go a long way, but because it almost solves my purpose at such a great price, I have no qualms.
