Ok. First.
That name.
Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Extra Penetrating
Extra Penetrating
Excuse me a moment while I get the laughter out of my system, I'm having one of those days.

You all know that I have bleached my hair to within an inch of it's life, bleached hair is dry and damaged and oils are good for hydrating and taming.

Now if I were giving advice on what hair oil to buy I would say look for the purest form of Argan oil that you can find but since it's my hair that I'm experimenting with and I write this here little beauty blog I feel the need to try stuff that is easily accessible at your local stores and talk about why they are good or why they are crap.

I picked up the Extra Penetrating Oil by Organix *snicker* purely because it says extra penetrating right there on the bottle and that just made me laugh.

When I got this home and checked the ingredients I was kind of surprised and kind of not. This contains three types of silicone (not surprised), an emollient, argan and linseed oil, colours and perfume. Nine ingredients if you include the perfume and colours, this was where I was surprised, I didn't have to look up a single ingredient, I recognised them all and it took me about 20 seconds to read through the list twice to make sure I was seeing things right.


I gotta say I really don't mind this product, for someone like me who runs a very high risk of hair breakage while brushing and styling I do actively seek at least one product high in silicone to use in my daily routine, this is often applied after all of my 'repairing' products have been used because some silicones are smart and they lock in the good stuff, slowing down their evaporation rate, this product contains a smart silicone. In my last hair oil review, I ranted a bit about how the ingredients in the oil would never do any permanent repairing to the hair and it pissed me off that the bottle basically said it would and this bottle claims that too "An extra powerful blend of Morrocan Argan Oil to deeply heal, smooth and restore luster to damaged, dry and coarse hair". I'm going to be honest and say I don't think this has any serious restorative values, the argan is still in the top 5 ingredients so not all hope is lost, just don't expect this to be the only product you will ever need, when it comes to 'drug store' (fuck I hate that term.. what is the Aussie equivalent??) hair oils you could do a hell of a lot worse!

If you have healthy hair or slightly dry hair this is not going to be for you, even if you tried to use a teeny tiny bit it would be way too heavy and the results wouldn't be desirable but if you have super dry, heavily damaged or thick, curly and unruly hair then this could very well help you. Combining a product like this with good moisturising products will help to keep the moisture in for longer, if your hair is as dry as mine you won't notice results straight away, other than the obvious smoothing effects that silicone offers, but given time and regular use (I'm talking several times a day) you should notice an increase in the smoothness, softness and overall condition of the hair in it's natural state.


Before I finish this review up I'd like to touch on the packaging real quick.. It's kind of crappy.
It's all plastic and the opening where you dispense product is quite large, this suits me well since I use a lot of product but I do have to admit that it is my least favourite aspect of this product, I'd much prefer to see it in a bottle with a pump or even in a squeezy tube. It's a small thing I know but an aspect I dislike and I want to tell you guys the good and the bad.

Pros:
  • Instant and long term effects with hydration.
  • Helps to tame fluffy hair.
  • Can be applied to wet or dry hair, if you apply too much it'll just take a few minutes longer to do it's thing.
  • Much more effective on damaged, really dry and thick, coarse hair.
  • Not full of shit that is pointless, the ingredients get to the point. Sure, it's not perfect but it also doesn't contain a million things that are absolutely fucking useless for the hair.


Cons:
  • I'm not a fan of the packaging.
  • At around $25.00AUD a bottle I think it's a little expensive for what it is, I'm on the hunt for something similar at a more low income friendly price.


Conclusion:
I'd buy it again for sure, even with that price tag and leaning more to the side of it not really being worth that much I feel like the benefits for me outweigh the annoyance that the price induces in me. When I use this several times a day, teamed with my other hard working product I know that within a week or so of bleaching my hair it will look soft and pretty again. I've also noticed that if I'm lazy with reapplying then my hair will show it and the frizz and dullness will stick around until I pick up my game, this is a helpful product if used consistently but don't expect results without effort.



I'm coming to the point of not having any unopened hair treatment products in my stash and that means shopping time! Do you have anything you would recommend I try or anything you would like to see reviewed?

Links provided are for shopping examples only, I have personally purchased from some (not all) of these online stores but I highly recommend researching before buying. Items marked * were sent to me for trial and consideration, all other products were purchased by myself and I am in no way affiliated with any of the companies mentioned unless otherwise stated.
