Oh, argan oil. You beauty superhero. All hair types love you, everyone raves about you, you are rumored to do magnificent things to hair.
And you do!
I was offered this Elixir Argan Oil product as an add-on to an order from Julep and, at the discount I was getting, I jumped for it. It’s supposed to be really great and this one is actually Curly Girl friendly (Moroccan Oil brand is NOT and therefore I won’t touch it no matter how many people insist it’s amazing).
Initially, I was honestly a little disappointed. This bottle is SMALL and I get a little dropper to use it? I thought “I have too much hair! I’ll use all of this in one go!”
Thankfully not. For the first use, I wanted to just put some on the ends of my hair to see what that would do. I flipped my mane upside down and worked approximately 4 droppers worth of the oil onto my ends. Tied my hair up in a knot and went about making dinner and such. It saturated about 4 inched up my hair both through application and time.
Go in to shower and I can already feel a difference before I’ve even applied my co-wash. Instantly sold. Post-shower but pre-product, I applied one dropper’s worth throughout the bottom half of my hair, mid-mane through ends. Just raked it in like I would a leave-in conditioner.
My ends are usually pretty dry and are the first bit of my hair to show wear and tear. This has breathed new life back into them! The oil I put in post-shower has left some great softness and shine without making my head look greasy.
I highly recommend this product to anyone with dry hair or who just wants to give their locks some extra love.
I’ve heard it’s good for skin and nails as well. I may try it out on my cuticles and see how that works.
