This makes my hair super silky & soft. Sometimes I would mix this with olive oil for an even more moisturizing treatment. It feels great in the shower and when you get out. I'm not a big fan of the smell - it reminds me of something my grandma would have. I'll probably try to find something comparable in the drugstore because since I bought this I've cut off all the damage from my hair so I don't need something this intense anymore (and it's kind of pricy). Good product, though - I would recommend.

I have this in the tub like container. I figured the bottled one is more convenient when you are in the shower and are trying to open it with damp hands.
This mask is amazing! It detangles and softens my thick coarse brittle hair like nothing I have ever used; and afterwards my hair looked and felt much more healthier and shiny! It worked for me amazingly and so far I am loving this One N' Only Argan Oil brand.
On a sidenote: My sister used it too and she hated it. Since she has naturally thin, greasy hair, this seemed to accentuate and weigh down her hair even more. If you have hair like my sister's I don't recommend this, since it's oil based. I would recommend a silicone based one instead.

After an Aphogee Protein treatment, my hair was screaming for moisture. No matter how many times I skipped shampooing, went sulfate free, or did an overnight treatment with coconut oil, my ends were pretty dry. I used to be a fan of the Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask. While it didn't change my life, it definitely made my hair very soft. I'd been seeking a cheaper alternative for a while and even though many formulations looked similar, I hadn't found any success.. until now. I've been using this product on my ends after shampooing in the shower and the results are the SAME as the Moroccanoil mask. Very shiny, soft, frizz-free. It also has the same scent and stays in your hair after drying. At about 1/3rd the price, I will definitely be rebuying.

After working a double header this Saturday night/Sunday morning, I decided to "treat yoself!" with a beauty trip to Ricky's (the NYC equivalent to Sally Beauty) with the intention of tracking down part two of the Aphogee hair treatment (I unknowingly bought only step one a few weeks ago).
As a long time reader/first time reviewer, I should probably add I was never really "obsessed" with beauty products (unlike, say, my roommate, who will gladly devote her salary to Chantecaille everything). However, after a few months of reading MUA reviews, I started the New Year off on a hair-health kick, eliminating heat whenever possible to preserve my (fine, dyed and sometimes highlighted blonde) locks. Because I have a nasty habit of picking my hair, my split ends are a particular problem. For only $2.49, I didn't hesitate to pick up this mask in addition to Aphogee Pt. II (knowing that the mask is a hell of a lot easier to administer than the extended blow dry treatment called for with the two step protein treatment).
I used the mask immediately upon getting home. After leaving it in for 30 min, I let my hair air dry (I sometimes sit in front of a fan and brush it out, alternately changing my part a bit so it dries with relative volume with only a little bit of a wave). At first glance in the mirror, I wasn't particularly impressed, but as I waited for my hair to fully dry, I was ecstatic - though it looked (and felt) well-conditioned and perhaps appeared a bit shinier, THERE WAS SO MUCH MOVEMENT! I stood in my bathroom slightly shaking my head for probably two minutes, in awe that even the smallest tilt produced a wave and a bounce (!) in my formerly static mane.
Because I am going out of the country for six weeks, I am probably not going to invest in the full size bottle. However, I will be packing at least three or four packets of the mask to use while in France. I am hopeful now that I am starting to participate in the MUA community that I can also gather some good recommendations on French beauty products to bring back to the states for friends and, bien sur, moi!

I was at Marshall's and came across this product. I normally don't purchase anything without researching the product but I was desperate (my hair is so dry and feels like a hard rough mat when it's wet and once it's dry it's frizzy and all the broken hair, and there's a lot of those, is all over the place...horrible) and there were only 2 left. Plus the price wasn't bad at all (9.99) so I took the chance the bought the Argan Oil Restorative mask.
I came home, read a ton of positive reviews. I couldn't wait to use it. I followed the directions exactly but decided to leave it on for an hour (I read that some people left it on for a longer amount of time and it worked even better). After the hour went by, I hopped into the shower to rinse it off and could not believe how soft and silky my hair felt. I decided to let my hair air dry just to see how it would look and it dried beautifully. The broken hair that I have stayed in place and there were very few flyaways. My hair actually looked decent (for the first time in a long time)and it was so soft and shiny.
The next morning I decided to style my hair and I can not believe how gorgeous it looks. So shiny and frizz free! I can't remember the last time my hair has looked this good. I dye my hair every 2 weeks because I have premature gray so you can imagine the damage. Just after one use, I can honestly say that you can almost not tell that I have ever had any damage to my hair. I have only used it once but I have a feeling my hair is going to keep getting better and better after every use. I love this stuff so much! Definitely worth the money!
Packaging was in a nice little jar and not in the bottle but it's the same exact product!
UPDATE: It's only been a few days since I used this product but my hair is still silky soft. I have not used it again (because I wanted to see if the softness would last) and wash my hair everyday so I am amazed that this stuff is still working! The real reason I am updating is because I dyed my hair yesterday and I was sure the chemicals would dry my hair again but, believe it or not, my hair is still silky soft! I can't stop touching it! I am hoping the last jar at the store is still there because I WANT it! I'm getting ready to go look for it right now. This stuff is AMAZING!

It's difficult for me to give this product a solid 5 rating because I don't necessarily consider it a holy grail/miracle product. HOWEVER, it does make your hair softer/shiner. The longer you keep it in, the nicer your hair feels. I have oily hair so I only use this product once in a while. It works. I'm just not sure how well it would work on someone with really dry hair.

Unbelievable results at the price point. I have used so many other products and most don't come close to how soft my hair feels after using this. Since my hair is really damaged, that is a HUGE accomplishment for this product! It smells really good, too!

I got the little 3oz size of this to try. I used this after dying my hair with a permanent blonde color, after I shampooed my hair I left this in for about 10 mins and it left my hair feeling very soft and silky afterwords :) I also really like the smell of it too! I will continue to use this after I dye my hair and any other times I feel the need for a hair mask.

Hair: fine, shoulder length, letting blond color grow out to natural hair color of dark blond, hair is flat.
I was on a search for a weekly deep conditioning treatment since my ends are super dry but roots and oily. I discovered this product at sallys and was hesitant to purchase it because it looked very creamy and heavy. I purchased a sample size (4.49) and decided to try it based on all the positive reviews. I tried it this morning in the shower (left on for 5 min). As I was rinsing it out, my hair felt super light but smooth. It rinsed out very easily. My hair was pretty easy to comb through and looked great when it was wet. As I started blow drying (a nasty habit it do every morning) I experienced the WOW factor! I couldn't believe it was MY hair! You could see each individual strand of hair have a glossy, smoooooothness to it. But it was NOT weight down! With my fine hair I thought for sure it would be flat. But my hair looked thick and full! And not greasy! But as the day is going on, my hair is looking super dry at the ends and little wisps of hair are frizzing up. From the roots to mid length still looks great though. I'm going to try it again tomorrow with a different shampoo....maybe that will help. I used it this morning after a clarifying shampoo. I'll update after I've used it
a little more.
UPDATE: I tried this product again this morning with Pureology hydrate shampoo and rinsed it out as soon as i worked it through my hair. The results were better. I used a drop of matrix exquisit oil on my ends before blow drying and my hair looked full, naturally shiny, and smooooth! It looked salon perfect! This could definatly be used as an everyday conditioner, not so much a weekly treatment.But like before as the day went on, a little frizz started happening and my hair felt weird. Like......a feeling I can't explain. Think of an old barbie doll found under your bed. The hair LOOKS good but it has that weird coated feeling. The scent is a little strange too. Like a woodsy cedar box scent. Ill use it when I need to have that "full" thick look for going out.But won't repurchase.
