This dried my hair out and tangled it up so bad. It smells great and I was excited to use it because actual argan oil was nice on my hair and skin but for some reason this just mummified my hair.
Considering Argan oil is fairly high up on the ingredients list (as well as other natural oils) this is a reasonably-priced shampoo. I'm stunned at the negative reviews on this shampoo as I've had such a positive experience with it SO FAR(!) but I wonder if they're mostly from people whose hair is very dry already as more natural shampoos won't usually do your hair any favours when it comes to moisture. Even though this one is supposed to give you moisture it probably wouldn't give enough for those hair types. Anyhow, despite being a regular 'oiler' (mostly for hair growth) recently I've been finding I need a slightly more moisturising shampoo than I'm used to in order to avoid tangles as I grow my hair longer. Nothing too conditioning, just a natural-ish shampoo that won't leave my hair squeaky clean, just clean. I have coloured, fine, bra strap length hair with a slight wave and I normally do well with mild, natural shampoos. I don't want SLS or anything else colour-stripping, or dimethicone (it contains dimethicone copolyol, a water-soluble silicone-derivative) and I don't mind a slight lack of lather which you expect when you leave out SLS. It's early days but this seems to fit the bill. I don't use the matching conditioner as I'm happy with my current ones. I'm not sure I'd want to use this one every time I wash as I think I would soon get buildup at my oily roots, but as it doesn't make my fine hair a stringy mess or overload it, I'm pleased.
Ive been using this for 2 years since garnier fructis changed their triple nutrition line changed and i LOVE this shampoo and conditioner. The conditioner is amazing, however the shampoo can be a bit stripping but i find that the conditioner fixes the problem. I use the conditioner to co wash in the winter and i love it. I wear weaves and braids and it works amazing with them as well. I do want to try a new shampoo because its expensive but i always seem to go back to them. I thought i had 4c hair because in the beginning of my transition, my hair was unmanageable but after i started using silicon mix and castor oil my hair is more of a 4a/4b. I bleached my hair and this condition seems to be the only thing that works to keep it healthy.
I LOVEEEE ITTTT. i have to say i have noticed a slight change from when i started using it to now but i still love it. Ive tried other organix (coconut, regular argon oil, shea butter) and my hair felt like straw afterwards so idk what it is about this one but i love it
Personally, I would only use this product again if I had ran out of a better shampoo. It does a good job of cleaning my hair and lathers well but doesn't make my hair feel soft at all. In fact, I can feel my hair drying out as my hair gets cleaner. The texture of the shampoo is very silky and thick, which feels lovely as I put it on my hair. It has a nice smell but doesn't last long after it has been rinsed out. I have 4c coarse hair. Tbh the conditioner is a bit better than the shampoo. For the price, I think Organix could have done a lot better.
There doesn't seem to be much oil in this at all! Unlike the elvive one this is awful, it makes my hair frizzy and the only thing good about it is that it smells good
Makes my hair so so so soft, absolutely love it
This is probably the worst shampoo and conditioner I have ever used.
I have really long (Hip length) hair that tends to be naturally wavy or slightly curly, so of course I need as much hydration as possible to maintain it. And up until using this shampoo and conditioner I have done really well. My hair is always shiny and soft and if I have curls they are bouncy and soft.
However, I bought Organix Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco and after using it once, I thought it would be a good buy. At first use it makes the hair feel very thick and it lathers up into a dream. The conditioner was thick and also made my hair feel really moisturized and thick. ....in the shower. But as soon as I rinsed I noticed a big change in my hair. It felt rough and brittle. I got out of the shower and let it dry and immediately noticed it was frizzy with almost no shine and it was a big tangled mess.
The next day I did the exact same thing except I blow dried. It was a little more manageable but still frizzy and dry and brittle with almost no shine. I bought the larger bottle of the conditioner and shampoo and I will not be finishing using either of them because even though this shampoo and conditioner was a little more pricey than what I normally buy, it is not worth ruining my hair. I have since purchased my usual, Tresemme, and noticed after only ONE use that my hair was feeling better than after a whole week of using the Moroccan Oil shampoo from Organix..
Don't let the whole "Moroccan Oil" and "Organic" thing fool you. This product is a big waste of money and will torture your hair.
I love this product. It has my hair silky and frizz free. i dont need any additional products to tame my hair as this works well on its own.
Thank goodness I bought only a couple of the trave sized bottles. It felt very drying on my hair and made my hair tangled. It doesn't lather that well either so I'm surprised it would be so stripping. It does have a nice scent and left my hair shiny, but that is pretty much it. I am very disappointed as I have had luck with other Organix shampoos in the past. My favorite is the Macadamia one in the brown bottle. I will probable reserve the remaining bottles for when I need to clarify or pass them on to family members. Back to the drawing board.
A little info about my hair before I review this product: it's long (reaches about mid-lower back), fine, straight, un-dyed, and normal (with a slight lean towards oily during the warmer months and around my period)
My usual hair care routine: Shampoo & condition (focusing mostly on the lower 1/3 of my hair, especially the tips) every 2-3 days with a bit of Argan oil run through after (again, focusing mostly on the ends) with my hands and fingers. Almost always towel/air dried.
I bought this product because I was desperate. This past winter was, for my area, incredibly cold and cry. My normal hair care routine just wasn't cutting it. My hair was so dry.. it was brittle and straw-like! Not something I ever really encounter since I don't straighten or blow dry my hair often.
I'd bought travel sizes of a different shampoo + conditioner with argan oil the previous year so I wouldn't have to pack a full sized bottle of oil and remembered liking it... Couldn't find that brand and saw this at CVS and thought "what the hell, why not"
It worked like a miracle. After a few uses my hair was back to it's usual silky soft self. I feel like this product gently cleans my hair well without stripping it (duh?) which I really, really like.
This shampoo and the matching conditioner became the only stuff I used during the winter and will definitely use again if the next cold season is the same.
That said.. I probably would NOT use this during the summer. Or if I had oily hair. And would not recommend unless your hair is incredibly dry/damaged or you live in a very cold, arid climate.
Some other info:
The packaging is unique, imo, and stands out in both color and shape amongst the rest of the crap in my shower... However, it can be difficult to squeeze the product out once you nearing the bottom of the bottle.
I enjoy the smell of this shampoo- it's kind of a light musky floral-y scent. The texture/consistency of both the shampoo and conditioner took some getting used to... very viscous and almost gel-like. It also takes quite a bit of work to get a nice lather going (which doesn't bother me in the slightest, but may bother others).
I believe the conditioner says to let it sit on your hair for a few minutes? I forget how long exactly but I just leave it for however long it takes to wash/exfoliate my face (not more than a minute or two).
I've noticed while my hair is wet after using this product it's a bit difficult to brush/comb through; I usually end up letting it air dry most of the way before brushing it. Once my hair is dry it's so unbelievably soft. And it doesn't look too flat either which is a bonus.
