This worked decently well, and made my hair feel a bit healthier after I had damaged it, however it smells HORRIBLE to me and the scent really lingered in my hair. Other people don't seem to mind the smell but I absolutely hate it and it discouraged me from using it again.
I get bored with my blonde hair every now and then and go brunette. Problem is, it never looks right so of course I go back to blonde. Well, I did a doozy on my hair a year ago and wound up having it all cut off at the end of last summer.
It was going good until my stylist decided during a routine trim to "texturize" the life out of my hair! I don't know what she was thinking but she RUINED my hair. Her texturizing madness actually put me back to where I was before, but with nothing left to cut off! I was beyond mad with her (and am still upset to a degree). Anyway, lots of Biotin to make it grow faster (which is really working) and this mask from OnO and I'm on my way. My hair is back down to the bottom of my neck and almost touching my shoulders. I use the mask as a daily conditioner. Every night when I shower and wash my hair, I coat my hair with this and leave it while I shave my legs and do other pertinent things lol. On the weekends, I wash my hair and leave it on for an hour or sometimes I even put a shower cap on and sleep in it. It has worked WONDERS! I go through a tube each week. It's pricey at this pace, but I'm not letting up until my hair is at least halfway back to the length it was. Good stuff.
After dying my blond hair purple then red then covering it with brown, i lost half my hair. I tried egg for protein and mayo/olive oil for deep conditioning, but was still having a lot of breakage and hair falling out. So, after tons of reading reviews, I opted for GVP reconstructor (comparable to Joico k-pak deep penetrating reconstructor) for a protein treatment and this Argan oil mask for my deep conditioner to follow. I didnt realize at the time it had protein, too, otherwise I probably would have opted for GVP biolage balm. ... Anyway, I cleansed my hair well, wrang it out well, applied GVP, let it sit for about 10 mintues, rinsed, did this mask, let it sit for about 15 ( instead of the 45 i had planned, since i didnt want protein overload), rinsed, followed w/my homemade (basically whatever i have laying around) leave in conditioning detangler (just an empty detangle bottle filled w/a squirt of each: conditioner, olive oil, sauve heat-defense leave in conditioner and water). Combed thru, blow dried on low cool. Results? Very good. Hair smells AMAZING, super soft and flowly, feels and looks much better. Holding up once fried and breaking ends, There is now a limp smoothness with, wait, where did the split ends go?! ... i can run my fingers through all the way out only getting a slight snag, instead of fingers getting caught halfway thru and breaking off bits. Tho still slightly frizzy on my sides, I beleive after the high results of one use will lead to even more improvement with continued once a week or every other week use. ... i really really wish i bought sooner... side note` i started using prenatal and biotin vitamins to also help my hair from the inside out. .. will update if anything changes.
I have thick dry hair and my mom has thin dry hair (hers from a lot of hair dye) and this mask has really helped to improve our hair. Now I notice that its really shiny and smooth. I really like this and the price is not too bad compared to other hair masks from other brands out there.
I just picked this product up at Sally's. My hair had been bleached recently so it was still a bit dry and damaged. I left this on for 10 minutes while in the shower and it left my hair in MUCH better condition. It's softer and more moisturized, but still voluminous and not at all weighed down. Great product!
This makes my hair super silky & soft. Sometimes I would mix this with olive oil for an even more moisturizing treatment. It feels great in the shower and when you get out. I'm not a big fan of the smell - it reminds me of something my grandma would have. I'll probably try to find something comparable in the drugstore because since I bought this I've cut off all the damage from my hair so I don't need something this intense anymore (and it's kind of pricy). Good product, though - I would recommend.
I have this in the tub like container. I figured the bottled one is more convenient when you are in the shower and are trying to open it with damp hands.
This mask is amazing! It detangles and softens my thick coarse brittle hair like nothing I have ever used; and afterwards my hair looked and felt much more healthier and shiny! It worked for me amazingly and so far I am loving this One N' Only Argan Oil brand.
On a sidenote: My sister used it too and she hated it. Since she has naturally thin, greasy hair, this seemed to accentuate and weigh down her hair even more. If you have hair like my sister's I don't recommend this, since it's oil based. I would recommend a silicone based one instead.
Great product! Delivers softness and body.
After an Aphogee Protein treatment, my hair was screaming for moisture. No matter how many times I skipped shampooing, went sulfate free, or did an overnight treatment with coconut oil, my ends were pretty dry. I used to be a fan of the Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask. While it didn't change my life, it definitely made my hair very soft. I'd been seeking a cheaper alternative for a while and even though many formulations looked similar, I hadn't found any success.. until now. I've been using this product on my ends after shampooing in the shower and the results are the SAME as the Moroccanoil mask. Very shiny, soft, frizz-free. It also has the same scent and stays in your hair after drying. At about 1/3rd the price, I will definitely be rebuying.
After working a double header this Saturday night/Sunday morning, I decided to "treat yoself!" with a beauty trip to Ricky's (the NYC equivalent to Sally Beauty) with the intention of tracking down part two of the Aphogee hair treatment (I unknowingly bought only step one a few weeks ago).
As a long time reader/first time reviewer, I should probably add I was never really "obsessed" with beauty products (unlike, say, my roommate, who will gladly devote her salary to Chantecaille everything). However, after a few months of reading MUA reviews, I started the New Year off on a hair-health kick, eliminating heat whenever possible to preserve my (fine, dyed and sometimes highlighted blonde) locks. Because I have a nasty habit of picking my hair, my split ends are a particular problem. For only $2.49, I didn't hesitate to pick up this mask in addition to Aphogee Pt. II (knowing that the mask is a hell of a lot easier to administer than the extended blow dry treatment called for with the two step protein treatment).
I used the mask immediately upon getting home. After leaving it in for 30 min, I let my hair air dry (I sometimes sit in front of a fan and brush it out, alternately changing my part a bit so it dries with relative volume with only a little bit of a wave). At first glance in the mirror, I wasn't particularly impressed, but as I waited for my hair to fully dry, I was ecstatic - though it looked (and felt) well-conditioned and perhaps appeared a bit shinier, THERE WAS SO MUCH MOVEMENT! I stood in my bathroom slightly shaking my head for probably two minutes, in awe that even the smallest tilt produced a wave and a bounce (!) in my formerly static mane.
Because I am going out of the country for six weeks, I am probably not going to invest in the full size bottle. However, I will be packing at least three or four packets of the mask to use while in France. I am hopeful now that I am starting to participate in the MUA community that I can also gather some good recommendations on French beauty products to bring back to the states for friends and, bien sur, moi!
