I have approximately 40% grey hair that I color every 4-6 weeks. My hair is fine to medium but I have a decent amount of hair. Some of the greys are coarse and unruly. My hair is wavy but I blow it out and then flat iron it. I wash every 3-4 days in winter.
This product works for me, initially I used a very small amount because I was afraid it would make my hair greasy and it didn't work great until I added more product. I now use between a nickel and quarter size 'dot' on damp hair and concentrate most of it on the ends. I think it has improved the overall shine of my hair without weighing it down.
The smell is very fresh and clean without being artificial or pefumey. It dissipates very quickly though so if you don't like fragrances don't let the smell be a deterrent.
The packaging is ok, I wish the top had one of those silicon holes that better controls how much product comes out.
I really like this product, and I am happy I found something that actually works. I have naturally straight, medium thick hair, that is pretty easy to manage. However, it's dry and damaged at the ends after years of hair dying, and blow-drying. I stopped dying my hair, but still blow dry my hair every few days. I needed something to make my hair feel softer, and healthier. I've tried many different products from john frieda, avon, and swarzkopf (heat protectants, frizz-ease, damage therapy products), I've tried using deep conditioning treatments, and nothing works as well as this! Im surprised that it worked so well after reading some negative reviews.
I apply it mostly to my ends, and I dont put too much. I love that it makes my hair so soft, shiny, without weighing it down. I use it after I wash my hair, before blow drying. It works great! My hair has been in much better condition since using this and I will definitely be buying some more.
The only downside of this products is that if you're not careful, a lot of oil can come out of the hole by accident, also I wish that it was a bit bigger for the price, but it is still affordable compared to other brands.
If you're looking for something to re-store your hair, I really recommend you try this!
Nope, this did nothing for me. In fact, I am sure that it made my hair frizzier.I've used it a couple of times, just to be sure it just wasn't me having a bad hair day. I put a bit on when my hair is still damp. I agree with the last poster who said that it just sat on top of the hair and didn't penetrate. I found the same to be true for me. It actually made my hair feel drier and more brittle. I've tried a few Moroccan oil products now and haven't yet found one that I really like. This is one of the worst...for me. I doubt that there is much of actual oil in in the product since Argan oil is 6th on the ingredient list.
I definitely won't be repurchasing.
Me: "What say you, Hair, do you like this serum?"
Hair: "Bah! Feh! What a sorry excuse for a serum! 'Penetrating Oil'? I think not! How dare you shame me with this hogwash!"
I've had to have this conversation with my hair (well, not really, and I don't know why my hair sounds like a gentleman) twice after falling for the hype. Twice. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on my gullibility for lemming overhyped products.
Not to imply that those who love this serum are wrong; if it works for you, then that's awesome and I'm glad you found a product that you like. It just does NOT work in my hair, and my hair LOVES serums.
I do absolutely love the fragrance, and this is the reason for the extra lippie. It's so exotic and, when I used it, made my hair smell lovely. However, its actual performance in my thick, now mid-back length, curly, dry hair is sub-par. Nay, worse than sub-par.
The consistency of the serum is alright, not too thick, not too thin. When I apply it to my freshly washed wet hair, though, it absolutely does not live up to its name and "penetrate"- it just sits on top of my hair, making it sticky, dull, and totally not soft. It doesn't get rid of any frizz, either. My other cherished serums (Macadamia Healing Oil, Garnier Sleek&Shine with Argan Oil, One 'n' Only Argan Oil and John Frieda Thermal Protection Serum) might not "penetrate" either, as I don't heat style, but when I use them, I notice a huge difference. They definitely sink into my hair and create shine and eliminate frizz, while both times I used Organix's Moroccan Oil, it did the opposite.
I think most of us can agree that the packaging for this serum is a bit nonsensical and messy as well. It's cute, but flimsy and doesn't dispense product without getting it everywhere.
I did use Organix's Brazilian Keratin serum for a while and liked it alot before I decided it wasn't working as well as other seurms I rotated it with. There's just no justifying me buying any Organix hair product. Remember- this is just me, and this is my experience with this serum. Don't let my review and fickle hair deter you from trying it. It's not a total waste ($7-$8 isn't too bad), and if you hate it, just hold onto the receipt and return it. If you come to love it, then a thousand huzzahs for you! continued >>
Even though i always do my blonde highlights at a salon, my hair became brittle, dry and lost its shine over the years anyway. While looking for a miracle cure, I've stumbled upon the Moroccanoil hype across a number of different magazines and blogs, but the price made me gasp, so i looked for a cheaper alternative.
This stuff is good. Not great, but good. It's good at taking a ridiculous sponge of a hair and turning it into silky smooth, combable hair. However, it does absolutely nothing for repairing the damage, or shine - i've used the oil for over 2 months now, and as soon as i skip/forget to use the oil, my hair is right back where it was before the "treatment".
In my opinion, the much-hyped Avon's "The advanced split ends serum" works better than this oil, being cheaper and in a much more user-friendly bottle.
Slimy, nothing special. I don't feel like it penetrates hair and my hair is very porous and absorbent. It just feels slippery and doesn't make my hair shinier, just dirtier. It will work on others, my hair is an extreme case, I have no natural moisture in my hair, its due to a medical condition. This isn't holy water and maybe that's what I need to work a miracle. But if you have average hair, some dryness, or dull hair, I am sure this would work, its just not helpful to me.
I have natturally curly, sort of damaged hair, and I bought this because I used other Organix Nourishing Coconuut Milk products, and really liked them, so I decided to try this. I really like it, it makes my hair very soft and shiny, and smells really good! You also don't have to use much of it to get good results, so it lasts a looong time.
I received a sample of this when I bought the shampoo that goes along with this line. The shampoo is terrible (in my opinion) and left my hair dull and dry. I tried the sample hoping it would put some life back into my hair, and let me just say this stuff works wonders. My thick hair is so soft and shiny with just using the tiniest amount. I plan to buy a full size version of it and it will probably last me for a good while.
I bought the coconut oil treatment and the moroccan argan oil 2 for £8 and I use them alternatively. I love this, the first time I used it my hair was so shiny and soft, and now after everytime I shower I towel dry my hair and put a tiny amount of this through the ends. I definitely wouldn't recommend putting it in your roots as I did this the first time and my roots went greasy. I have normal hair that tends to get a bit dry and frizz a little but too much product really weighs down my hair. So I use a light cleansing shampoo and them put this on afterwards and it works wonders, doesn't make my hair heavy at all!
I purchased this product at Walgreens for $7.99 USD. It is a small bottle, but a little product goes a long way. I put this in my hair after I have towel dried it. I blow dry my hair and it feels so soft and it smells so good. I definitely recommend.
