Doing good so far? I have made no secret of my love for argan oil of late – heck, even my BB status message says ‘Argan oil is my new BFF’ 😀
So, no surprises for guessing what I am going to review today – yes, I will be reviewing the Hask Argan Oil. This was gifted to me by a friend who was flying down from Dublin and who had seen my BB status message. Hence proved that social and mobile networking is REALLY lucrative!
Before writing the review I shamelessly looked up the price on the net, and these are available for 2.50 euros a pop at Primark and Penney’s stores ;P
Lightweight oil infused with keratin enhancers for a silky smooth finish with exotic shine.
This comes in a tiny cylindrical brown colored bottle that reminds me of those tiny bottles for homeopathy medicines. Its super compact, tiny, and great to pop into your purse if you want to quickly rub a tiny bit to control flyaways on the go. It has a blue plastic cap with rubber in-lining that helps to close it tightly. No risk of spillage at all!
My Experience with Hask Argan Oil:
I am a complete sucker for things that claim to make my hair soft and shiny – and the word keratin is seriously like music to my ears. So, when my friend got me this baby I was really excited to try it. The oil itself looks exactly like honey with the same gel-like consistency. It’s not sticky but not runny either and has a mild fruity/floral fragrance (sorry I am really bad at describing fragrances – there are only 2 fragrances in my dictionary – ones that I like and ones that I don’t like). The smell lingers on the hair for a while but doesn’t stay long.
Like other argan oils, you are supposed to apply a pea-sized amount on wet hair, especially the ends and then style as usual. Can be applied on wet or dry hair.
Coming to its claims of making hair soft and shiny – I would say I am loving it! I think it controls flyaways really well and makes hair soft and smooth. I am not too sure about the shiny part though – I haven’t noticed any remarkable difference. Its easy to apply and doesn’t make hair sticky at all! It doesn’t lead to a lot of buildup and I like that. My hair feels smooth to touch and is noticeable free of tangles after applying this.
I have also applied a little bit on dried hair at times after heat styling and I think it controls frizz to some extent but not completely.
Cons of Hask Argan Oil:
I think it works well as a regular serum but doesn’t work wonders or improve the quality of hair much and that is something that argan oil is supposed to do. But at this price, I am not expecting miracles. It contains some ‘cones’ – so not a natural product.
I am on the fence about this one, I probably won’t repurchase this if I get the chance because although the price is really awesome, it’s just a regular serum and doesn’t work wonders for my hair. But if you want to try it once, it doesn’t hurt to pick it up for 2.50 euros.
