I use all types of different conditioners for my hair and I tired the Moroccan Argan Oil one from Organix as Tesco were selling them with one third off a little while back.
I have very awkward hair with dry ends and greasy roots so I have to be really careful about what I use. This conditioner was £4 and it usually retails at £6 so I considered this to be a bargain. I had not tried this range before so I did not know what to expect, if I am honest.
The first ting I noticed about it was that it is really thick – much thicker than any toehr conditioner I have used, in fact. The smell was nice enough, though not anything really special.
The conditioner was creamy in texture and consistency and I used it according to directions. Hen it came to rinsing it off I noticed that it is not as easy as I had been expecting. As this conditioner is so think, it seemed like it didn’t want to come out of my hair and it wanted to stay there and cling on for dear life. I fund it easier to remove if I turned the water temperature up slightly higher, that way it sort of dissolved.
Afterwards my hair felt no better or worse than it had done before. It is what I call a “blah” product because it does nothing really, and my hair felt and looked the same as it had before I had used it. Bit of a waste of money really, as I could have stuck to my normal stuff, but at least I got t at a reduced price.
Not really recommended.
Argan oil is everywhere nowadays and you can even find al the major brands blending their existing products in the selling point that ARGAN OIL will improve on their already award winning products? Why? Does it make THAT much of a difference?
I only discovered this in WAITROSE and had no idea about this ARGAN oil which apparently can improve the cell structure of your hair, talk about deep! And strengthen your hair.
Within the oil are antioxidants that remove the dirt, grime and product build-up that can dull your colour or make your hair look oily or limp.
I found this to smell absolutely amazing, I purchased this alongside the shampoo and found it to work better together although you could use this on its own with some good results.
Using this long term you are more likely to find you notice a difference. If you have dry hair this will banish that adding moisture and plenty of shine to your locks. The feel of your hair will be amazing. Is it better than other brands? It does beat some brands but not all as everyone seems to be catching up with standard and this brand no longer is unique or stands alone in providing something others can't.
This is a brand I would go out of my way to buy. My hair is thicker than I would like it and this is one of the few brands that actually reduces the weight, feel and look.
The prices are reasonable starting from £3.99, shopping online brings better deals :)
I would highly recommend this product x
WHAT IS IT?
This is conditioner that is made by Organix. It has got Argan Oil in it.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
You wash your hair like you normally would and then apply this conditioner. Because of the Argan Oil you should leave the conditioner in your hair for a few minutes and then rinse it out.
WHAT I THINK
I think this conditioner is good but I do not think it is worth the money because it is quite expensive but it does not do very much extra for my hair except to condition it like other cheaper conditioner products.
It smells nice and I think it is a very creamy conditioner so that it is easy for me to apply it to my hair, it is not greasy and even if I put it close to my scalp my hair does not get greasy in the day.
It is quite hard to rinse out and because of it being creamy you should take care to rinse it properly because it can weigh down the hair and make it hard to style. This happens only if it not rinsed out correctly.
When my hair is dried after I have used this conditioner it feels nice and soft and it is easy to style also. It makes my hair be free from knots but I do not think it conditions deeply and it is not intense like I would expect it to be from the price and from what Organix say about it also.
It works like basic conditioner but it does not do any more than that.
This costs £5.99 and that is not value even though it is nice conditioner, I would buy it if it was cheaper but I will not pay that money for it again.
3 Dooyoo Hearts.
I am signed up to websites such as Groupon and Living Social and occasionally purchase a bargain. One such was a haircare package including shampoo, conditioner, protection spray and hair mask. Today I will be reviewing the conditioner.
The packaging is brown and green which isn’t the most obviously appealing but it does fit in with the perception of argan oil as being a natural, ‘earthy’ product. What I do like about the packaging is the shape and form. It has a flip top lid, meaning that it is easy to open and close even with wet hands. The lid is actually on the bottom, meaning that even when the product is running out, gravity ensures it’s still easy to get it out of the packaging.
The tube is a 250ml one and the conditioner contains Moroccan Argan Oil extract. Argan oil seems to be a big thing at the moment and it supposed to be really good for your hair. It is claimed that the conditioner helps to rejuvenate and rehydrate the hair, leaving it shiny, smooth and healthy.
The conditioner is easy to use: after rinsing off your shampoo, simply apply a small amount to wet hair, leave for 3-5 minutes and rinse off. It is white and has a thicker texture than the shampoo. It has a faint pleasant smell but this doesn’t really last on my hair.
This conditioner seems to do a really good job. It doesn’t irritate my scalp, but keeps my hair moisturised without making it oily. When used alongside the matching shampoo, the results are superb. I colour my hair and have not noticed this stripping the colour at all – it is very gentle. It helps to tame my hair, keeping it moisturised and under control. It also makes it incredibly shiny – much more than some other conditioners I’ve tried.
I haven’t seen the conditioner anywhere in the shops, but I did a bit of searching and found a shampoo & conditioner duo being sold on eBay for £6.95, which I think is good value. Based on the excellent price and the high quality of the product, I definitely recommend it.
I have been dying my hair for several years now and, as a common knowledge, hair dyes are bad news for any hair type. Awhile ago, I felt like trying L'oreal dip dye for the ends which came out really nicely. Unfortunately, dip dyes have a lot of bleach in them to lighten the strands to achieve the desired effect, which means it left me with dry and horribly split ends (sometimes I get five-way splits!). So, I urgently needed a rescue remedy and I came across the Organix Argan oil product range while I was browsing in Boots.
Boots were doing a promotion for the Organix Argan product range, and since they're supposed to fortify weak and dry hair, I decided to give them a try. I bought the shampoo, conditioner and the oil. They all came in turquoise-coloured, opaque bottles. The conditioner bottle has the capacity of 385ml, which is not a lot for someone with long hair like mind. It's quite expensive too, costing around £7.00. I bought mine in a deal for two for £8 I believe back then.
Since them, I've been using them a least once a week when washing my hair to strengthen my hair and improve the split ends. The consistency of the conditioner is quite thick so it's a bit difficult to spread it throughout, meaning I have to use quite a lot each time. Considering one bottle only contains 385ml, it didn't last me long.
I saw some improvements in my hair in terms of the strands feel strong and moisturized but split ends still persists. I think a more regular use might be necessary.
I used to get my hair highlighted blonde but in order to get it from the dark brown that I had dyed it, I needed to get my entire head of hair bleached. This left my hair in truly awful condition because it had already previously been damaged by the home hair dye. Then my mum suggested trying this conditioner out. She swore by it. For a good year or so, it worked fabulously and then I decided to go back to my own colour and grow my hair out and it began to make my hair really coarse and greasy the more my natural hair returned. I was very disappointed as it was a miracle to my hair for so long. Since then I have moved on to Toni&Guy but I highly recommend this for people who have seriously dry hair. The difference that you'll see will be worth every penny!
This conditioner has very luxurious type packaging. It has a smooth bottle that is a lovely shade of blue, with black font, and with gold accents. The bottle is ergonomic to hold and use. The bottle has a flip-top lid with a generously sized hole for the product to come out. One thing that I absolutely adore about this product is their commitment to eco-friendly packaging. Using post-consumer recycled resin for the bottle and 'environmental inks' and a compostable film for the label. Being environmentally friendly is a huge selling point for me.
First of all, it smells great!!!! (Indeed this is one of the reasons I continue to buy this product). The conditioner itself is a yellowish color. It has a wonderfully soft and smooth feeling to it that definitely feels like it should pamper your hair. I have seen this conditioner run anywhere from $5-10 depending on where you find it and whether or not it is on-sale. I always buy it on sale, usually at some place like... I hate to even say it...Walmart (such great prices I can't seem to avoid this place as much as I try). For the $5 or $6 I usually get it for the amount of product is great and it lasts me for quite a while (and I have waist length hair, that is very dry). It seems to go a long way in my hair and i never have to use more than about a nickle sized blob (except if I have just bleached my hair, because then I pile it on).
I have moderately thin hair and it tends to be a little on the dry side and I don't really deal with frizz. This stuff tends to make my hair feel smooth and certainly knot-free :). However, I most often use this conditioner in combination with other one of my absolute favorite conditioners (the 3 Minute Miracle [3MM] by Aussie). So my impression of the ability of this conditioner on its own may be a bit skewed. Anyhow, I do love the way this conditioner feels, both in the hand and on the hair. It's silky, smooth, and thick enough to hold onto the hair without just running out. On the back of the bottle they claim that your hair will be 'silky perfection'. While perfection may be a bit of a stretch I have definitely seen my hair be smoother, shinier, and more silky after using this conditioner. There were no drastic first time use results that blew my socks off or anything but with continued use I definitely saw some change. Also, this product proves itself to be environmentally friendly again by not testing on animals (yay the lab rats and bunnies are safe from the Organix lab!), another big selling point for me.
Word to the Wise: Use as directed!
The bottle says to let this product sit in your hair for 3-5 minutes. DO IT! Don't short yourself here. If you're going to spend the money to use this product and you want your hair to turn out like they say on the bottle, give it a chance to work it's magic. It might seem like a long time but it's worth it to let this product soak in as much as possible and to allow your hair to absorb the nutrients
Overall, this product does what I expected it to (I did not expect a miracle conditioner). It exceeds the ability of any kind of generic or drug-store brand conditioner I have tried and the price is very comparable when it is on sale. In combination with my Aussie 3MM I believe I have created the perfect conditioner concoction and I think that the Organix plays a very important role. I would suggest it to anyone with 'normal' type hair who wants a little bit of luxury in their conditioning routine.
So having reviewed the accompanying shampoo some time back, I have finally got off my lazy rear and reviewed the conditioner. I used my last application from the light blue, rounded bottle that smacks of quality with its little domed dark gold cap, and here are my thoughts.
Organix Renewing Morrocan Argan Oil Conditioner. A product that I had lusted after trying for ages, sitting there, teasing me in Boots and Waitrose, with its lovely packaging and "I'm so high quality" aloofness. So when I finally decided to treat myself to something with a price tag of £6.99, I had high hopes.
Supposedly the oil content in this product penetrates the hair shaft to leave it restored of its shine and softness. It is suitable for colour treated locks, is paraben and sulphate free, and supposedly is also strengthening. It claims to be able to restore moisture to dry hair - something my ends are desperate for - and protect from styling heat and UV rays "whilst creating a soft and silky texture".
Them's some claims, Organix.
Well now. Once upon a time, before I was scared away from hairdressers about a year ago and have never returned since, I had a cut in a lovely salon in Covent Garden which was done by a very talented young girl who I had every intention of returning to. Except, when I tried to rebook her, I was told she had left.
Must have been something I said. Like "I'll come here again".
Anyway, one thing this lovely girl imparted was that, in studying her craft, she had once read that you should rinse shampoo from your hair for a full four minutes before you can consider it prepared to make the full use of its conditioning treatment. Now, we're all busy, but lately I've been crazy busy and today, with one application of this left, I decided I would do so.
Truth is, I ended up so bored that I started cleaning the shower walls with a sponge and some unloved shower gel. Whether the hair thing is true or not, it certainly saves time on the cleaning.
Anyway, I digress.
First off, let me say that I have used this product as is advised - ie in the normal way you would use a day-to-day conditioner - when I first got it. Wash, rinse, apply, leave in a short while, rinse thoroughly, naff off to work. And I wasn't impressed. Sure, it was capable - but I had really ramped up my hopes about this product (probably more my fault than that of the product). It was perfectly capable and produced perfectly acceptable results, but after using neat Morrocan Oil in the past and having those expectations I was left a little deflated. My hair felt fine - quite soft, quite shiny, but no more so than it had with cheaper products. Hmm. Oh well. Live and learn.
But then I tried something else. Something that, the first time I did it, resulted in my mother looking at me quizzically and asking if I had coloured my hair again. Let me explain...
...First of all, let's get the basics out of the way. In this dome-lidded, rounded bottle, you have a thick, creamy, light yellow product that when you dab with a fingertip comes away with a tip, like whipped cream but more dense in its consistency. The scent is hard to place but is subtle and pleasant. The cream is easy to apply and soon works easily through the hair, leaving it coated with a nice, thick treatment that does not drip. I personally like to be generous with my conditioners as my ends are all very dry thanks to my now paranoid fear of hairdressers, and I have quite long hair. This does mean that the bottle might not last me as long as it will others, and it hasn't lasted as long as the shampoo (which I always use it in conjunction with, by the way). But I don't have any complaints about the longevity - I thought I would, but the weight of the high-quality plastic bottle is deceptive and after leaving it on its lid, balanced in a candle holder, for a day or two, there was another generous application to be had. I enjoyed that this morning.
Right, that's that established. Now, for me, this product comes into its own when used as a real hair mask, which the consistency is more in keeping with in my opinion. One day I whacked it on, and then thought "sod it", slapped on a face mask and sat there with my book and let it do its thing for a quarter of an hour, then rinsed thoroughly in the shower. That was the day my mother thought I had got my hair done and coloured - that is how shiny and healthy it looked afterwards.
Now, you do have to rinse thoroughly if you use a lot of this and leave it in a long time, but if you have the time to do it, for me this makes the product well worth its price and it outperforms more expensive salon "mask" products I have used before. I make sure the hair is coated, and kick back while the oil really gets into the hair.
Today my hair has dried beautifully, feeling strong. I have sat out in the sun reading a book and keep getting distracted by the remarkably vibrant way that my natural highlights are reflecting the sunshine - and while noting this, I saw that my very evident split ends were virtually unnoticable. It truly is remarkable. My hair overall feels like it has more body but, because it was rinsed thoroughly, I don't feel that it has a residue feeling to it. I wish my time and money stretched to looking after my hair like this every day - it is remarkable, and the marketing bods at this company are missing a trick.
Well as a day-to-day conditioner it would have been three stars. You have high quality packaging and a nice product in terms of scent and consistency, but overall performance-wise, it didn't live up to quite what I'd hoped. It might have pushed a four star if I were having a happy day.
But having stumbled across its best form of usage, I am so impressed with this product. It has outperformed every expensive or non-expensive hair mask or intensive conditioner I have ever tried and leaves my hair not only strong and relieved of its usual dryness but also so supple and smooth that it is massively shiny right down to its normally "cloudy" dry, dull and broken tips. I know my hair needs the attention of a professional so for a product to achieve this for effectively £7 a bottle, which has lasted approximately a dozen very generous applications, I can't rate it highly enough. Marketing bods, take note - you don't even know what your own product can do! Highly recommended. I'm going to rate it five stars because the way I use it means it performs miracles, even if the people who make it clearly need to spend more time in the bathroom.
