MY OPINION
We have all heard of the wondrous qualities of Moroccon Oil? Well, Argan Oil you can say is the unadulterated version of it. Morrocon Oil contains silicones to make the hair frizz-free and smooth. Whereas, Argan Oil is in its purest form with all the essential ingredients and without the host of silicones.
After dealing with these facts let’s move on to this particular product. The website says that Skin Food Argan Oil is free from any paraben, alcohol and artificial dyes. The description on the bottle is in a Korean language that the ingredients are unintelligible for me. However, I do have doubts that this is not Argan Oil in the purest of its form. Reading a lot about these oils I have learnt that pure Argan Oil is quite expensive, has a nutty smell and is available only in glass bottles to preserve its properties. This Argan Oil falls in none of the three traits. It is not the cheapest thing, yet affordable. It has a very strong perfume scent and it comes in a plastic bottle.
All considered, I think this Skin Food Argan Oil is particularly formed for hair usage unlike the pure forms which can be used on skin, food, hair etc. There are three ways how you can use Argan Oil on your hair. One, the very usual method that first comes to the mind, to apply on towel-dried hair after shower. You use like a hair serum, concentrating on ends and massaging up to the head. That’s how I do it. This method has given me the best results, from all the hair serums and leave-in conditioners I have used so far, this Argan Oil has been most effective in giving me frizz-free, smooth, shiny hair. I use around 3 pumps in this method. Surprisingly, this oil does not have a very greasy formula, it’s between a serum and a hair oil. But it feels very light-weight and silky.
The second method is to use on dried hair. I use that way only to smooth flyaways or the ends of my hair if they are looking unruly and dry. If used a lot on dried hair, since your hair is moisture-less it won’t absorb product well and you may end up with a greasy mane.
Third is to use it as our typical hair oil leaving it for a couple of hours or overnight. You need quite many pumps for that.  This way was not very fruitful as the rest. It did not work any wonders. My coconut hair oil gives me a more lush overnight treatment than this.
I can say goodbye to my leave-in conditioner, hair serum and any smoothing product since this Skin Food Argan Oil works quite amazingly in these areas. However, this one is not a replacement for your hair oil. It has been formulated to act as a hair serum and does not work as a hair oil.
For all those who suffer from unmanageable hair, this product really works better than all serums and conditioners. It really smooths out unruliness, frizziness and gives such a luster. 

RATING


I ditched my leave-in conditioner and hair serum for this!

  1. Nice review. I really like the three methods of applying oil on hair. Obviously, each method is for a different purpose and different kind of oil. I've tried so many oils (amla, coconut, mustard seed, cocoa for hair or/and skin). Currently I'm testing almond oil. But I'ver never tried Argan. At least now I know how to apply it to get the best results. Thanks ;)
