I usually dye my hair every couple months and use hair dryers / straighteners almost daily, which makes my hair pretty dry and frizzy. I've been using those DermOrganic products for about 5 months now and it works wonders. I'm not the biggest fan of the Shampoo... as it leaves my hair really dry and tangles so easy, but the mask and this leave-in treatment are great, and it doesn't feel sticky/greasy after using it! I use it every time I wash my hair (3-4 times a week). My hair looks way better now, it doesn't have a dull-dry look, it shines and feels stronger! When I first started using it, I hated the smell, I thought it was a bit stinky (not to bad tho), now I'm ok with it...( I think I just got used to it.) It reminds me of grape-tea smell... I don't know how to describe it.
I got mine at HomeSense (soaps section) and the price was great! $16.99 for the leave-in treatment and $19.99 the Mask and Shampoo (each). I guess that's why I decided to give it a try. The shampoo and mask bottles are pretty big and last forever, the leave-in is tinier but as I only use few drops each time,it lasts quite a long time too. I'm really going to keep using it as I love the results.
This is an awesome product for added shine, softness and decreased frizz. I currently use this, macadamian leave-in oil treatment, live clean argan oil, as well as garnier fructis sleek&shine leave in conditioner. I switch up everytime so I use these four products equally. The reason I do this is to ensure my hair doesn't get used to any one product. So far I would say this is my favourite of the 3 oils that I use. The reason: it is the most lightweight so it doesn't weigh my hair down if I want to achieve volume, and it's awesome at controlling frizz and adding softness and shine. You need very little so my bottle will last a loooong time considering that I probably end up using it once every 2 weeks (wash my hair 2-3 times a week and use this every fourth shower lol). My only complaint is the scent which is too fruity and strong for me. It's just wayyy too sweet but I don't care, as long as it performs well. Macadamian oil.............now THAT smells like heaven!
This feels and smells much more natural than the Moroccan argan oil. It is clear colored, has a silky, light texture, a mild 'grapey' smell, and leaves hair soft and smooth without feeling greasy. I tried the more expensive Moroccan oil, and was turned off by the cloying smell! This product won't compete with your fragrance, or want for lack of! The ingredients are more simple and natural, and this does everything the other does without the stench at almost half the price! Damp or dry, this product preforms well! Five drops in the dry frizz prone areas of my hair, and walla! Hair that feels like, well, HAIR! I want to try the macadamia oil next before crying 'GRAIL"!, but this is a strong candidate for repurchase in the future!
I was thinking of getting the keratin treatment but now that i have found this awesome product - i don't need to now!! It's fantastic!!! It leaves my hair feeling soft, not frizzy, not oily, and easier to straighter! Absolutely love this stuff! Not really into the smell but the end result is worth more!
While this does a great job of softening my hair and making it shiny, it does little for me in terms of frizz control when my hair is damp. It seems to work better if my hair is dry. It smells wonderully like cherries to my nose and I like the ingredients. It is a bit expensive but not as bad as the moroccanoil. I paid twenty five bucks for my bottle at the local beauty supply by my apartment. All in all, I do like this product and will continue to use it until I finish the bottle. Not really sure if I would repurchase again. update: 1/5/13 I find this works better on dry hair for me. I get incredible shine and frizz control. I Still love the smell. The line is quickly becoming my favorite. giving this a five from a four.
This product is liquid gold. My hair has some kinky, frizzy dry spots because of my heritage and this made all of my hair soft, manageable and beautiful. I know that my hair will grow long and strong in this kind of condition. I got this item at CVS for about 25 [but i only paid 15$ with my extra care coupon!!] - this is a 5 star product, all the way. it OUTPERFORMS!! Its good that its in a dark bottle because sunlight may decrease the effectiveness of the argan/grapeseed oil. The price is kind of steep but for this kind of performance its worth it. The packaging quality is superb, easy to use. And yes, i would buy this product again!
I like this! I was using Macadamia Oil Healing Oil, which I still like a lot, even more in some ways, but I seem to get good results with this oil as well.
My hair feels healthier and softer with Dermorganic, it seems to hide my split ends the best.
However when I used it on damp hair before blow drying, it didn't keep my frizz under control as well as other products. So I will only use it when I let my hair air dry, or on dry hair between washings.
The scent is ok, although I much prefer the Macadamia Oil one.
Also the Macadamia Oil works better as a finishing gloss after flat ironing and keeps my hair from frizzing.
I won't rebuy, but I will use this up.
The info from the bottle reads: Vegan hair care, no animal testing, no artificial preservatives, sulfate, gluten, sodium chloride, salt, parabens, MEA, DEA or dyes. It is enriched with omega-6 and antioxidants, and made with certified Argan oil from Morocco. It claims to ďAdd incredible softness and shine, revitalize and repair, protect from thermal damage, speed up drying time, restore optimal moisture balance.Ē
So here is how I use it on my hair. After showering, I brush my hair out and put a little less than Ĺ a teaspoon into the palms of my hands. I rub them together and apply it starting at the ends and gradually comb it through to the top using my fingers. Then I just style as usual. Itís also a great skin moisturizer so I rub the rest of it into my hands when Iím done, or onto my kitten Monsterís fur it makes her nice and soft! Also a final tip is to take an unused mascara wand like the ones from Sephora they use for samples and put a little bit on the end of that and run it through your bare lashes to give them some more moisture and it has made a difference for me!
If this products keeps doing what it is doing...then it will be my HG. I have used so many oils and serums that there are too many to count. I like the Macadamia Oil and Dove Nutritive lines a lot (see my reviews) and still think that they are great products. Lately though, i have been using everything to get my fried ends sort of moisturized. Everything helped - a little and some a lot. This stuff is different - I dont really know why. It should just be your regular silicone type serum with some oils thrown into the mix. For some reason, this is more than that. It softens my ends like nothing else has ( I have also been using Shea Moisture Repair Masque for the last few weeks which I think has a lot to do with it!). But, when I put this on my hair..it changes. It is not heavy or greasy or weighed down. It feels like, well, my hair used to! Light, nice waves where I want them and straight and smooth in the areas that I blow dry. Every other serum or oil that I have used made my hair eventually greasy and/or just did not really seep into my hair (I think I have used them all - my two favs being the Macadamia oil and believe it or not - the Dove Nutritive oil - great drugstore product!). they all made my hair LOOK better, but i knew the truth- gross damaged hair underneath. I bought this on a whim b/c i had heard some good things about it and even though my hair is growing in healthier, the ends were still so unmanageable that I needed to try something that i hoped would work. I am desperately trying to grow out shorter layers so I need the ends to stay healthy so I dont have to keep trimming them. This does work really well. Really....I am so shocked b/c nothing else has really come through like this has for me. It has only been about a week so I will update if anything changes. I am waiting for the let down, but I have a feeling that this will keep on working well. It was 25.00 at CVS. Pretty pricey, but it will last a while and if it works then I will keep purchasing. I also like that it is not colored. I worry that some of the other darker oils (Moroccon Oil, One 'n Only) will change the color of my blonde highlighted hair. They seem like they tend to make blondes brassy. This has not added colors, sulfates, etc. Seems like a great product!!!
UPDATE: April 2013: Still using this stuff. Love the smell and the results. I try to pick up a bottle whenever I see one at marshalls or tjmaxx Save a lot of money and I have seen no difference in the quality or results.
I was using Moraccan Oil, but my cousin gave me a bottle of this and I fell in love. It doesn't seem to much different than the Moraccan Oil, but it is a little less expensive and it has a wonderful smell. I love what argan oil does for my hair.. helps to keep it smooth, soft and shiney! I have also recently started using the Dermorganics shampoo and hair masque. All 3 products together are amazing.
