I didn't want to believe it, because I rarely use Garnier products, but I gave this a try and I do love it, because it is not greasy and absorbs quickly.
I squeeze the water out of your hair, then when it's about 50% dry, then I put this golden orange oil on my hair, smells like baby cologne to me, but it dissipates quickly, it really does seal in moisture, makes hair dry faster and gives it shine...Why pay more for other oils, when this does the job?
After hearing lots of great reviews for this product I decided to try it. I have long, straight, fine hair that's colored and highlighted. Overall my hair is in pretty good shape. When I get out of the shower I always apply a product that gives my hair some "slip" before brushing it. FF Glossing Cream provided me with that "slip" for over 6 years. I've tried many other products over the years from Living Proof, Ojon, Renee F, Oscar, Bumble and the list goes on and in and onnnn lol. Nothing worked like my beloved FF GC.
The first time I used this I applied too much, my hair looked great but went flat w/in a few hours. I had to wash my hair the next day(I usually wash a few times a week). I tried much less the next time I used it, only applying on the very ends and allowing my brush to distribute a little to the rest if my hair. I used my other products(as usual) and when I was done my hair looked great. Would my hair stay or would it fall flat like it did the day before? It stayed much better than the day before. Still falling a little flat though. I'm still playing with this serum/oil. I love the smell and don't want to give up. It makes my hair so silky, almost too silky. I think someone w frizzy, damaged or curly hair would love this. If your hair is like mine and naturally poker straight, and fine, it might be too much so if you do buy it start out using a pea size amount first(pea size if your hair is 4'past back bra strap, less if your hair is shorter). Compared to MO, I like this better. It's also better than the MO knockoff from Sally's(smells better too).
On second or third day hair after using dry shampoo I apply a little in the palm of my hand, rub hands together and rake through the ends. Anything left over on my hands I apply to my arms. I'm still on the fence on this. I mixed a very small amount with the Glossing Cream and the results were amazing!!!!!!
Okay, I saw this in the store for $5 and thought, hey, why not give it a try? My other Moroccan Oil was $59, and was very heavy and took overnight to absorb. Well, I was incredible impressed with this one! I have very, very long, straight, incredibly think brown hair, and usually anything I apply makes it look oily and gross. This one did not, and it absorbed in less than 10 minutes and make it WICKED soft and shiny!! I only apply about a quarters size amount on either side of my head from chin down, because any farther up would make it appear oily. I would not recommend it for people with shorter hair though, because after asking me how I got my hair so soft my friend decided to get some for herself (she has thinner, shoulder length hair) and she barely used any and it appeared very wet and oily. But anyways, for me, this is the best. I love it. I need more. Try it. Just do it.
I absolutely love love love this on my coarse curly hair. My thirsty dry hair just sucks it up, leaving my hair soft and manageable. I used to straight iron my unmanagable hair, now I add a quarter size right after shampooing and let it dry naturally. I love my curly hair again! Thank you, Garnier!
I live in North Dakota and the winters are very cold and rough on my hair. I love this oil for reducing split ends and protecting my hair from cold, dry wind and styling damage too. After I work it into my damp hair, it absorbs right away and my hair seems sleeker, less frizzy, and not oily. I can't put it at the roots, though, because it does make my hair feel greasier than usual, but using it at the ends of my hair is great!
I think this is a great little find in the drugstores, because its MUCH better than Moroccan oil.
If you look at the ingredients alone, you will notice that Argaan Oil is earlier than in Moroccan oil.
I don't use this stuff everyday or every shower, however I do use this or Sleek and shine about once a week or once every 2 weeks to lock in the moisture and seal the hair.
Here's my tip on getting great results from this.
- Put coconut oil in your hair and sleep over night
- Next morning clarify your hair to really squeeky clean it, i use garnier clean and pure.
- Condition as usual
- After a few days when you need to re-wash your hair, do a conditioner wash..google it..its great stuff and not just for black people hair.
- Squeeze the water out of your hair and when the hair is about 50% day..put this little gem in your hair..it will seal the hair ensuring moisture from the conditioner stays in.

This is my everyday oil. I love the smell and it is very light so it doesn't weight my hair down. The only con is that it doesn't work so great for my scalp during the winter months.
This was the perfect product for my very dry, frizzy thick hair. Only a little bit of this stuff is needed and will go a long way. Much cheaper than Redken glass or Paul Mitchell skinny serum and has a tropical scent and will last a long time. One of the best drugstore hair products I've ever used.
I LOVVVEEE this stuff. I originally bought this as like a serum for my frizzy naturally curly hair. After trying it on my curly hair I hated it. It sat on the surface and my hair just looked greasy and limp. I tried it with my blowdrying and flat ironing routine and I love it. After towel drying my hair I spray in a leave in conditioner and detangle. Then I seperate my hair into 4 sections and clip off three of them leaving one free. I apply a nickle sized drop of this serum to the one section and blow dry with a round brush and a paddle brush. After doing that to all 4 of the sections. I apply a dime sized amount to each section and then flat iron. It wasn't greasy at all just very shiny and has lots of slip and movement to it. Love this stuff. Desireesbeautyblog.Blogspot.com
I bought this recently when I ran out of my main brand of Argon Oil dry spray and at first I was unimpressed. I would mix it with my conditioner in the shower and rinse. I set it to the side and bought my normal stuff. Just a few weeks ago I decided to give this another go before tossing it. I love this now. I add it to my wet hair as soon as I jump out of the shower, before combing and I've noticed I have a lot less frizz and my hair is super soft. The smell is awesome and the price is too. I would def repurchase this.
I wanted to add: I finally figured out the smell is just like Pureology's Shamp'Oil. If you love that, you will enjoy this scent as well.
