I have my shiny back!!! I wanted to wait a whole week before writing a review but couldn't do it. I'm five days in, and wow. My hair LOVES to look greasy, but this doesn't weigh it down or grease it up at ALL. Even with dry shampoo for a second day my hair stays shiny, whereas normally my trade off with dry shampoo is dull hair. I've also noticed a huge change in the texture of my hair - some of the styling products I've been using have been leaving it a little stiff. I've been hesitant to harsher cleansers due to my coloring (red), and I don't want to over condition (fine hair that loves to be limp and greasy). Even using some Pureology products I just felt like my hair wasn't getting soft (if that makes sense). This stuff? Wow. After one day it's like I have new, soft hair that keeps volume. And it's so, so cheap (I mentioned that I paid for Pureology, right?). Just buy it and try it and love it!
I LOVE THIS!!!!! This a amazing and it also acts as a heat protectent and it just makes your hair super soft and I like not to use it every time I wash my hair because it makes it softer because otherwise if you use it every time you wash your hair it just use to it or you get use to it and you stop seeing the great results. Here are some pros and cons:
Makes hair soft and shiny
It smells really good
It lasts a long time
Its something around three dollars
The smell does not stay in your hair
If you use to much it looks like your hair is greasy
This is my favorite kind of product-- inexpensive, easy to find and actually does something. I became obsessed with Ojon's Damage Reverse oil but at $25 a pop, it was heartbreaking. Finding something that really helps but is out of your price range sucks! This Garnier Moroccan oil does EXACTLY the same thing. I rub a quarter-sized amount between my palms and run it through my hair, careful to avoid my scalp, then I straighten it. It stays SO soft and tame for 3-5 days, seriously. I hope they don't discontinue it.
This is a light, easy to distribute silicone serum that I initially thought was approx the same as any other silicone/shine serum, until I flat ironed. I noticed much more shine than other products (I used Biosilk then Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide for years, my hairdresser is a Moroccan Oil fan) without any weird heavy/greasy spots - this product distributes very easily and I think spreads out even more when heat is applied, so I can get a good coating over all my hair without ending up w spots that are overly coated or look dirty. This doesn't weigh my hair down hardly at all - maybe a little without heat styling (fine 3a curls) but definitely still very bouncy with heat styling. Heat styling also seems to bring out extra shine w this product.
The smell of this product is such a pleasant change from the regular Fructis sent, I wish they would change them all - it's more like a higher end product instead of the overly sweet fragrance they typically use.
Overall will definitely repurchase. There could be better serums out there, but I like this better than the salon brands I've tried and it was around $4, hard to beat that.
PROS - SUPER CHEAP
Makes my hair feel so mush softer
Noticed my hair didn't get too frizzy in the rain (YAYYY)
Smells kind of good
CONS- Are there even any???
Awesome! I've used for 3 times now after the shower when my hair is wet. I liberally apply it to my scalp and hair with a brush and wait for my hair o dry. When it does, it is sooo soft and sleek. My hair used to be just plain bleh but now it's awesome!
Of all the argan + cones products I have tried, this is by far my favorite. Here is why:
Adds shine without greasy build up.
Does not weigh hair down.
- decreases drying time
- protects from heat styling
- reduces frizz
- not greasy
- adds shine
- not really a Moroccan oil product
Comments: Pure Moroccan oil is hard to come by, so I expected another silicone-filled oil...which it is. Silicone works for my hair so long as its in the styling product and not a conditioner. I use this when heat styling only. It adds more shine and softness to my hair and if I need my hair to air dry quicker...this is great for that too. I also love the way this stuff smells.
I saw the good reviews here and decided to try it out. After washing my hair, I rubbed 5 drops of this on my hands and ran them through my towel-dried hair, then let it air dry. My hair was definitely softer, but it still looked frizzy. I'll try this again tonight using more serum, but so far I'm not impressed. This is on sale at CVS right now for 3/$10, plus I had a coupon. Regular price was $6.49.
After researching on MUA, I decided to give it a go; Argan oil is the product of the moment, and I have read an article or two. GF was doable since it is easily found- don't even get me started on Color Tattoo Barely Beige! It was about 5.99 and I had a dollar coupon. It smells nice, not fruity. I have fine hair and am growing my grey but have some dry, brittle ends. I plan on trying it in the morning ; thanks to MUA reviewers, your input really helps!UPDATE :like it so far, great as overnight treatment and nice after shampooing! UPDATE 2: I have finally rid myself of the results of the Big Perfect 10 disaster of '08! All natch, hoorah! Do much softer! Using just a few drops on damp hair or small amt in conditioner. Nice product for the mass market.
