This is the second Argan oil I had tried. The main reason I bought it was because I had purchased other Lee Stafford items and it was on 3 for 2 in Boots. Separately this costs £11.99 in Boots for 50ml.
The bottle comes in a pink box. It looks like other serum bottles and it has a pump action dispenser. The oil is described on the packaging as being a special blend of ingredients the main one being Argan oil which comes from the Argan plant which is native to Morocco. The oil is designed to create soft shiny hair without adding weight or product build up.
You can use the oil on wet or dry hair. It is recommended you rub a small amount between your hands and then spread form the mid to end lengths of your hair. It advises you to use sparingly and add more if necessary. You can then style your hair as normal.
I have long hair now I have been growing it for a few years and as it gets longer despite regular trims a I get a lot of split ends probably because of all of the heat styling. I had been using a different oil prior to this which seemed to help a lot by making my ends look less damaged and smoothing my hair. The first time I used this I tried it on wet hair I needed to use two pumps of the product to cover my hair. The oil was very thick compared to others I had tried. It reminded me more of a serum and it needed to be rubbed in my hands quite a lot before applying to my hair. After using the oil I styled as normal.
After using this my hair felt like it had a lot of product on it. The second time I tried it I used less but unfortunately that didn't make a difference. I found my hair was lank and greasy looking by the second day. Normally I only need to wash my hair every other day but this made it look greasy and limp. I also tried this on dry hair to smooth flyaways which I have a lot of. Again it just made my hair look greasy.
I didn't get on with this oil at all, I have since purchased a Wella miracle oil which is a salon only oil and costs the same as this product. It gives far better results. Unfortunately this oil just isn't for me. I gave since given it to a friend as it seemed like such a waste. I wouldn't buy this again.
Aftet having a baby and deciding to go from jet black to bleach blonde it's fair to say my hair wasn't in the best condition. So after scouring the shops I decided on this. The initial thought was tiny bottle but compared to others on the market the price was fair. I'm not sure if I was expecting too much but it didn't seem to have the wow factor for me. My hair was pretty damaged so I persisted. The tiny bottle is decieving it lasted for ages. Only a small amount is needed. It made my hair soft and shiny but that's nothing a decent shampoo and conditioner can't do. I did like the fact that the serum wasn't too heavy and if you did apply slightly too much my hair dudn't look like an oil slick. Apart from that and after all the hype of argan oil I was left slightly deflated. I've used many a serum and this product to me failed to achieve beyond what a cheaper serum can.
Having searched the internet for ways to get my hair healthy again, I came across a lot of people swearing by Moroccan argan oil. I had read so many reviews before purchasing this, as I have never used a hair oil before, and at £11.99 a bottle, I wanted to be sure it was going to be good! There are many bottles of Moroccan argan oil out there, but I chose this Lee Stafford one as I have been using lots of his products recently, and I bought it as part of a 3 for 2 offer with some of his other products.
This oil is only a 50ml bottle, which I thought was very expensive considering how much you get, however after 4 months of use, I still have half a bottle left, you only need such a tiny amount, so I wouldn't mind purchasing for this price again as it lasts so long. It has a spray top, with a lid, and comes out really easy when you spray it. The bottle says to spray the product into your hands, but I spray it directly onto my hair and massage in with my hands. You only need to spray a small amount in your hair, too much and it can leave your hair feeling a bit wet. It doesn't leave your hair greasy like I thought it would at first, you cannot see the product in your hair. It doesn't weigh your hair down or make it feel heavy.
You can apply to wet or dry hair, I tend to put it in my hair when it is dry to finish it off after straightening. It leaves my hair feeling so glossy, and soft. It feels smooth and so nice to touch. It gives my hair a really good shine when I apply this and I often get comments now after a few months of use about how shiny my hair is. I definitely think this oil is helping improve the condition of my hair, my hair is much stronger, looks healthier and less dull. It really has brightened it up and it smells gorgeous too. Sometimes my hair looks a bit dry once I have blow-dried and straightened it, but this oil really moisturises it, and it looks so much better using this.
You cannot even feel you have this product in, you can't feel it through your hair when you touch it, and I have never sprayed too much in to make the product build up. A little of this really does go a long way.
If you have dry damaged hair, I would definitely recommend this oil to add moisture and shine to your hair. It is expensive but well worth splashing out on, as it lasts so long and gives such nice results. It stops hair looking dull and gives it a healthy shine!
I tried this oil after a recommendation from my sister and I'm delighted with it so far. At the moment there are loads of oil based hair treatments on the market and it can be difficult to differentiate! This claims to be a miracle oil, to nourish and restore hair and I have to say it does just that ! My hair is very dry after indulging in some summer blonde hairlights and this has restored it to its former glory! The oil is quiet light and on first application I had to use around three ten pence sizes to notice any improvement to my shoulder length hair. I have been using the oil each time before I blow dry my hair and it's definitely softer and much more manageable. As thecondition of my hair has improved I can use less oil per application, probably around one ten pence size portion now. I also tend to use the oil as a finishing serum to massage down any loose ends from an up do. The oil is non greasy (my hair is combination and tends to look limp with other oils but no such problem with this one!). The smell is the only negative, its just ok, mildly irritating but the overall effectiveness of the serum makes up for it. The packaging is cute and whilst 11 quid sounds like a lot for such a small bottle -50ml- it lasts for ages and is well worth it!
I picked this up from Boots earlier in the year when I had my hair cut short. I was after a serum to take away frizz and smooth my hair- I had heard about Moroccan oil and that it was supposed to be nourishing to the hair. Lee Stafford claims that Moroccan Argan Oil is nourished with Pro-Argan complex, a special blend of ingredients which help to create soft, shiny hair, leaving it in superb condition without any product build up. This product can be used on damp hair or sparingly over dry hair.This was priced at £11.99 for a 50ml bottle, so I was a little put off by the price at first, but I assumed that this would be superior product due the ingredients.
The packaging looks like a standard serum and there is a pump dispenser for distribution of the product - one pump dispenses around a 10 pence sized amount of serum. The oil is colourless and is heavily fragranced with a masculine scent - I like this fragrance and I think it smells like a salon product. The oil is quite silky to the touch, not tacky or sticky and is easily to rub over damp hair. I find that 2 pumps is enough to cover my shoulder length hair.
I then dry my hair normally and I find that my hair is a little smoother compared to when I haven't used this - but it is still frizzy with flyaways. I then have to use another pump of this oil to apply to my dry hair to tame my the frizz. Like with all oils, you HAVE to use this sparingly otherwise your hair will look lank and greasy. Reapplication of this does help tame to frizzies a little, but I still get the bits of hair sticking up on the crown of my head. I would say my hair looks a little shiner when I use this, but nothing dramatic. When this is used sparingly, I don't have to wash my hair any more frequently as it doesn't grease up or feel sticky - and I have oily hair. Thankfully, I don't think that there is any product build up from this oil.
I have been using this every time I dry and style my hair since January (8 months) and I have used just over half of the bottle - so I suppose it does last a good while, which helps soften the blow of the price.
Overall, this a decent product, but no way is it worth £12! It works just as good as Frizz Ease or any other serum I have used in terms of taming frizz and smoothing, which were cheaper. The positives are that this is not sticky or tacky on the skin or hair and it smells nice. I can't say that the overall condition of my hair has improved since using this, either. I won't be buying it again and don't recommend it unless you have money to burn.
