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)

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.

Review: Garnier Fructis Damage Repairing Hair Mask

Garnier Fructis Damage Repairing Hair Mask

Here’s my review on Garnier Fructis Damage Repairing Hair Mask! I’ve been meaning to get to this mask. I just finished it. Here are my thoughts on it!

The purpose of this hair mask is to nourish and repair damaged hair. Make it softer and smoother without weighing it down. This hair mask contains 98% naturally derived ingredients. It contains papaya extract. No silicones, parabens, and artificial colorants.

How to use? There are 3 ways to use this hair mask. That is as a hair mask, hair conditioner, and as a leave-in treatment. As a hair mask, use the hair mask after shampooing. Apply the product onto wet hair and leave it on for 1 minute. Rinse afterwards. As a conditioner, after shampooing, apply the product from the root to tip. As a leave-in treatment, apply the product onto damp hair for frizz control and color protection.

I tried all 3 methods. Here’s my experience with this product.

The texture and consistency of the product isn’t too rich or thick. I’ve used other hair masks/conditioners that are thicker, richer, and heavier on the hair. This one was pretty decent in consistency. It also has a nice smell to it. It’s fruity and pleasant. So I tried all three methods as mentioned. Out of the three, I prefer using it as a leave-in treatment. It takes only 1 minute to use. That’s what I did at first. Since I love experimenting to see what works for me. I tried leaving the product in my hair for longer than a minute. I tried leaving it on for 5-10 minutes. I preferred leaving the product in my hair much longer, since I have dry ends. After rinsing the product out of my hair, my hair didn’t feel greasy or heavy. It didn’t weigh my hair down (yess!!!). I really don’t like it when products make my hair flat. But, I wasn’t a fan of the overall results of this product. I love the smell and all, but it didn’t deliver results. At least for my hair type. It didn’t help moisturize my hair. It only felt moisturizing when I was applying the product to my hair. Afterwards, not so much. I wanted a hair product that would moisturize and make my hair feel softer and smoother. This didn’t do much of that. Also, after drying my hair, it felt like the product sat on my hair and left a layer of product over my hair strands. It felt like it coated my hair with plastic. My hair felt like straw after a few hours. By the end of the day, it looked and felt really gross. It didn’t matter how I used the product, my results were pretty much the same. My hair just didn’t feel or look good. Maybe the formula of the product isn’t for my hair type. I don’t know. All I know is that it didn’t work for me. I’m just really happy that I finished it. I won’t be purchasing it again.
