Argan Oil has become very popular in hair care over the last year or so. I’ve tried many different products with Argan oil in it and somehow they didn’t manage to work out AS well as I had hoped. It’s because although my hair is damaged a little from coloring it and heat styling it, it is also oily.

Most Argan Oil products make my hair look like I dipped my head in a frying pan of oil. So, I’ve been craving the much needed hair repair of Argan oil without it being over oily. So when I got a chance to try the new Marc Anthony Argan Oil Collection I was super excited.

They have an entire hair care line dedicated to Argan Oil. This collection consists of the Marc Anthony Shampoo & Conditioner, Mousse & Hairspray, Treatment Oil, Dry Styling Oil, and 3-Day Smooth Perfect Blow Dry Cream. They sent me the Shampoo & Conditioner, Hairspray, Mousse, and Treatment oil.

The Shampoo & Conditioner

The Argan Oil Shampoo and Argan Oil Conditioner are an amazing duo. They help to restore strength, revive shine, and protect from further damage. My hair health means a lot to me, so I was glad that these actually help keep it healthy and adds a brilliant shine without the excess oil.

This duo is sulfate, chemical, and dye free. They both contain keratin, grape seed oil, and argon oil. They protect from color fade, replenishes the moisture to dry/damaged hair, and they smell amazing!

The shampoo lathers up pretty well for it to be sulfate free (most sulfate free shampoos hardly lather at ALL). I only have to use about a quarter size amount, which isn’t a lot considering my hair is almost lower back length at this point. It deeply cleanses my hair while refreshing and restoring the vitamins and health to my hair.

The texture is very creamy and feels very silky to the touch. It renews the silky feeling to the hair without stripping the natural oils. I used the combination for about a week straight and then the second week started using it about twice a week.

The scent of the shampoo/conditioner duo is very light and not overpowering at all. They smell really good and unlike any other hair care line I’ve ever used. They seem to have a grape/flower mixed smell which is invigorating and relaxing! I love the scent and the fact that it’s still there even after I blow-dry my hair! Most scents disappear after heat styling.

I am LOVING this conditioner and how rich & luscious the formula is! It has made a HUGE difference in my hair and EVERYBODY has noticed. It totally seals the deal! It supplies and nourishes the hair with the moisture that it needs to be brought back to life.

It is ultra hydrating and doesn’t need to be used on a daily basis. I can now use the shampoo/conditioner twice a week and get the moisture my hair needs. My hair is definitely more healthy, shinier, and less has less frizz.

WP_004136

it works so well for my hair because it is so light. It doesn’t weigh it down and make it look oily like other keratin/argan oil hair products do. I love it. It maintains the dehydrated/split ends while keeping my hair from looking like a grease pit at the end of the day!

WP_004332

I could tell a difference in the way my hair looked and felt after the SECOND day, which is amazing. I have gotten some amazing compliments since I started using this! People asking me what I use to make my hair so healthy and shine like it does.

I also love the fact that they HELP from my color fading, which also helps with hair health overtime. The less you color you hair, the healthier it will be. If you use a color fade shampoo and conditioner, the color stays in for a longer period of time!

I’ve noticed a huge difference in not only my hairs health but volume and manageability. Usually my hair is kind of hard to brush after showering because of its length. Because of the added nourishment and moisture, my hair is completely tangle free and stays beautiful and tangle free all day!

The Argan Oil Treatment

This Argan Oil Treatment is a daily, lightweight oil that will never weight your hair down or make it look greasy. It transforms dry, dehydrated, damaged hair no matter what texture your hair is. My hair is now glossy, shiny, and absolutely no frizz in site.

It doesn’t matter if you have straight, wavy, curly, thick, or thin hair- it works like tiny drops of magic. It will instantly become a favorite must have treatment for your hair. I love the fact that I can use this on a daily basis , even if I don’t use the shampoo/conditioner. The trick is to find out how much is needed for your hair type. Obviously thick, curly hair would need more than thin, straight hair.

WP_004366

Even though my hair is long, I only have to use a very small amount. I use less than a dime size portion and make sure that I disperse it throughout my hair evenly (and I avoid my roots). It comes with a pump action bottle, so it’s easy to get the right amount without being wasteful which makes it last a whole lot longer!

You can use 2-4 drops on damp OR dry hair. I’ve use it both ways and my hair was still looking freshly cleansed, didn’t look oily in the least! For extra damaged hair you can also do a night treatment by adding 2-4 MORE drops before bedtime. It never leaves an oily reside on your bedding or clothing.

It’s ultra lightweight because it is a mixture of Argan oil and olive oil. It being micro-light helps it penetrate the hair to better condition and protect while the vitamin E and shea butter hydrates and softens.

The Mousse & Hairspray

imageWP_004367

The Marc Anthony Argan Oil Volumizing Mousse is a light, airy whip that lifts each strand for fuller volumous styles with extra flowing movement. I love it provides hold for styles that last all day long. It allows bounce and your hair will actually move when you turn your head (GASP)!

Usually mousses give so much hold that it looks like my hair is plastered to my head, which isn’t a look that I would like to EVER recreate! I don’t like my hair to look stuck to my head. I want my hair to look as natural as it can, not frozen in time. This mousse allows my hair to actually look and feel NATURAL.

WP_004376

It hydrates and nourishes dry hair. I can put this in my hair while it is damp and scrunch my hair into natural, beautiful looking beach waves. My hair looks healthy, strong, and shiny. It can also be put in my hair when it’s damp and I can blow dry it into a full volumous style.

I definitely love that it doesn’t make my hair stiff. It helps keep frizz away and it lasts all day! My hair has never loved another mousse twice as much as it does this one. My hair is still so soft and it never looks oily or greasy, because the mousse is lightweight.

I adore the smell of these products, they all smell similar. Usually mousse smells too much like chemicals, so I am glad this one doesn’t!

This Marc Anthony Argan Oil Volume Hairspray is dual purposed. It not only makes for an amazing styling aid but it also helps hair health. How many hairsprays can you say that about? Definitely not many at all. This hairspray is a non-water based, fast-drying formula. I love that it holds all day without flakiness or stickiness. It still lets your hair feel natural (So NO stiff head! YEAH!)

WP_004381

It’s flexible finish creates the ability to re-work styles without any gunky product build up. It adds an amazing luminous shine that makes my hair look glossy, healthy, and nourished. It adds strength and also helps condition as I style my hair.

I am in love with the fact that it adds volume without smelling like aerosol. It is sulfate free so I also use this to style my 4 year old daughter Adisyn’s hair for school. Her hair doesn’t come loose from the hair tie all day.

She remains looking her adorable, beautiful self even after a nap! How awesome is that? You can’t beat the prices either. These products (ALL of them) are definitely high quality products, and they work 10x better than most high priced items. I’d take these over the others in a heartbeat. Every single one of these products add shine, health, and vitality as well as volume without product build-up, oil, or stiffness!
