Update: OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask

OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask.

I finished the OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask! Here are my thoughts on this product…

I purchased this product to help with dryness, rough ends, and smoothness. And keep my hair moisturized and looking healthy. Here are the benefits of OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask (according to the product label):

Did it work for me?

I started using the OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask once a week. I increased it to twice a week since my hair still felt and looked dry. After using it twice a week, I started using it every night for more moisture. Using it every night worked better compared to using it only once or twice a week. My hair was very dry. I needed a ton of moisture. Even though the hair mask increased moisture in my hair, I didn’t think the formula was the best for my hair. My hair felt moisturized after using the product but not days or weeks after. My hair became frizzy and just dry again. This product was more of a short-term thing. I didn’t expect it to keep my hair moisturized forever. But at least within a week or so would be great. It just didn’t work for me. Also, the scent of the hair mask was pretty overwhelming, in my opinion. I mentioned this before. I didn’t like the smell of the product. I prefer faint or light-scented hair products. It has to smell good and not overpowering. This hair mask just didn’t smell good to me. I had issues with the scent. From my experience using the entire jar, I won’t purchase it again. I finished it and tossed it out. I’ve already started using another hair mask. It’s the Arvazallia Hydrating Argan Oil Hair Mask. Stay tuned for my review of this product!

My Hair Care Routine + Reviews (Aussie, Kirkland, Nexxus, OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask)

Comment
OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask.

I stopped using Aussie hair care products. My hair didn’t like those products at all after months and months of using them. My hair would get extremely dry, crispy, and feel coarse from the shampoo. I had issues using it on my scalp as well. It dried out my scalp and made it itchy. The conditioner didn’t leave my hair moisturized. My hair just felt like hay using these products. It felt and looked awful. I didn’t see improvements in my hair. Aussie is a pretty inexpensive brand, but I can’t do this to my hair anymore. I needed to dump these hair care products and…yes…spend a little bit more.

I ended up trying Kirkland Signature Professional Salon Formula Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. This shampoo and conditioner were a total failure. It felt like it cleansed my hair without stripping it dry at first, but it was because my previous shampoo and conditioner did more damage to my hair. Kirkland worked a tad better for my hair. But it wasn’t for me after using it for some time. I finished them and tossed them out. I needed products that was even more moisturizing. I didn’t purchase it again. I searched for something else…

So! I picked up Nexxus Therappe Ultimate Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve been using it for most of the summer and now in the fall. The difference in my hair between switching to the Nexxus Therappe Ultimate Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner from Aussie hair care products was night and day. My hair didn’t feel as dry anymore. My scalp felt healthier. The itchiness and dryness stopped. My hair started to feel more full and lively. Not heavy. The Nexxus shampoo and conditioner smells really good. It’s fresh and light. It’s not heavily scented. Perfect as is. My hair looked much smoother and healthier. I loved the results.

But! I wish it was a little bit more moisturizing. I wasn’t getting it from the Neexxus shampoo and conditioner. I went out and purchased OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask. This is an affordable hair mask. I needed a hair mask quick because my hair needed a little pick-me-up. I mean, a ton of help, haha. This is what OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask is supposed to do:

I’ve been using OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask for nearly a month now. I don’t use it every day. I use it once a week. It’s been OK. The smell of the product is pretty overwhelming (to me). I wish it was more moisturizing. Maybe my hair is just too dry right now. Maybe I need to bump up my usage to twice a week. I’ve been dealing with dry ends for a while. I need something to revive them a ton. Once I finish OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask, I won’t purchase it again. I just think it’s OK. I want to try out other hair masks/deep conditioning treatments first.

artnaturals Argan Oil & Aloe Shampoo and Conditioner

I did purchase a new set of shampoo and conditioner. They are artnaturals Argan Oil & Aloe Shampoo and Conditioner.

That sounds perfect! I’ve only used it for less than a week. So far, it’s been alright. The shampoo doesn’t foam up that much. Seems like I need to use a little bit more to clean my hair. I have a lot of hair. At first, I used 1 pump of shampoo and tried to distribute the product all over my scalp and down to my hair strands. It wasn’t enough. 2 pumps of product is where it’s at for my hair. I wish it was more foamy, but that’s OK. I can deal with it as long as it leaves my hair clean. It has for the times I used it. As for the conditioner, I wish more product would come out. Once again, I have a lot of hair, long hair. I tend to use more conditioner than shampoo. I’m not too impressed with the conditioner. I’ll have to use it a bit longer to see if it’s good or not. Both products haven’t dried out my hair. My hair feels moisturized and clean. Not too bad yet. But we’ll have to see when I use it for a bit longer.

I did pick up another deep conditioning treatment. I haven’t used it yet. It’s the Arvazallia Hydrating Argan Oil Hair Mask. It’s a deep conditioning and hydrating treatment for softer, silkier, and healthier looking hair (as it says on the packaging). I haven’t even opened it yet. Here it is.

My Hair Care Routine + Reviews

Comment
Aussie Hair Care

Here’s my hair care routine! I thought I would switch things up a little bit. I’m such a skin care addict. Perhaps I could share my hair care routine instead! 🙂

I’m a pretty simple person when it comes to hair care products nowadays. I used to use a ton of salon hair care products. I stopped using them. Not because they were bad products. I ran out, and I just didn’t feel like buying/paying that much for shampoo, conditioner, plus other hair products. The $$$ just added up. I loved the results, but I didn’t love how it put a dent in my wallet. Also, I didn’t think it was necessary for my hair type. I have long, straight hair. It’s extremely easy to maintain. All I have to do is comb my hair and detangle it in the morning (if there are any tangles). So, it’s not high maintenance. I’ve been trying to keep my hair care routine low-maintenance as much as possible. No bangs or coloring my hair. Bangs are freaking cute, but they require daily maintenance. I have to style my hair for them to look presentable. I just can’t keep up with that anymore. I colored my hair a few years ago too, and it was exhausting to keep up. I’m glad the color grew out. I’m going to stick to my natural hair color from now on. In other words, I have no intentions in changing my hair color any time soon. I’m happy where it’s at.

What shampoo and conditioner am I using?

For shampoo and conditioner, I’m using the same brand each. It’s the Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner (see photo above). Both of these hair care products are for dry hair. I started using them because I was able to get them for under 5 bucks. 😁 lol. They’re both 30.4 fl. oz. (900 mL) bottles. So they come in large bottles that could last possibly a lifetime. I’m just kidding. They seem to last for months though. This is my second time purchasing the Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Conditioner this year. Here are my thoughts on them…

The Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner are decent hair care products. The shampoo contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate. Some people might not like this. I used to avoid shampoos with SLS and SLES too. Turns out I can use some hair care product with SLS and SLES. It depends on the product. With this shampoo and conditioner, it hasn’t bothered my scalp and hair one bit. I haven’t had any type of irritation, itchiness, dryness, hair breakage. My hair is literally down my back and healthy. For someone else, it may be different. So the shampoo lathers up and cleanses my scalp thoroughly. I’m not left with residue or an itchy, dry scalp afterwards. The shampoo worked for me. It didn’t dry out my hair. It could be more moisturizing, but it’s not too bad. It works. It does the job. As for the conditioner, it helps to detangle and moisturize my hair nicely. I didn’t think it was the best at moisturizing my hair compared to other hair care products I’ve used. But, just like the shampoo, it’s not too bad. I have no complaints besides wishing that it was more moisturizing since it’s called ‘Miracle Moist’.

My experience with the Aussie shampoo and conditioner was good. I mean, I’m not wowed by the results, but it did what it’s supposed to do. And that is, cleanse and condition my hair. At least it didn’t dry out my hair or make it shed. For my hair type, it works. Will I purchase it again? Most likely. As I mentioned earlier, this is my second time purchasing the Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner. Overall, if you’re on a budget and have hair that isn’t too picky, this may be a good choice.

Other hair care products I’m using…

I have a few hair care products I’m using. More like trying to finish. I’ve had these for a while. Not sure why I stopped using them. I must’ve forgotten about them. I was moving out my belongings and ta-da! They’re back! I started using them again to finish them up. They are…

Pantene Gold Series Leave-on Detangling Milk:

This product is a leave-on detangling lotion. It comes in a pump bottle, which is very convenient. The texture of the lotion is soft and creamy. It’s infused with argan oil. Argan oil is the 3rd ingredient on the ingredient list. It helps to detangle hair and moisturize it. It helps to tame frizzy hair too, especially at the ends. It softens and smooths out the hair. But, this product left my hair feeling coated with silicones. It’s not lightweight enough for me. My hair ends up feeling like straw. Also, it contains an overpowering fragrance (smells sweet). I’m not a fan of it. It’s way too strong for my liking. I won’t purchase it again once I finish it.

Renpure Solutions Coconut & Argan Oil Styling Creme:

Renpure is a styling cream. This product also comes in a pump bottle. It contains coconut, argan, and marula oil. It’s supposed to repair and hydrate dry, tired, and frizzy hair. Also, to help prevent damage from heated styling tools. I purchased it to use before styling my hair with heat styling tools to prevent damage. From my experience using it, I prefer it over the Pantene product I’m using. Pantene can be used as a ‘prep for styling’ as well. That’s what it says on their website. But, I prefer using Renpure for that purpose. Sometimes I apply both together. Renpure leaves my hair moisturized without feeling heavy. I’m not sure if I would purchase it again. Maybe I’ll try something else to mix it up a bit. I’ve been using this product for a while.

Pantene Renpure Hair Care

That’s all I’m using at the moment. Maybe I’ll switch out products or add new, different products in the near future. This is it for now. ♥️
