Argan Oil/ Moroccan Oil

Has anyone used argan oil aka moroccan oil? I am currently looking for virgin argan oil, Moroccan Oil just has too much other chemicals in it. Argan oil is very high in vitamin E and much praised in Morocco where it's also eaten (and According to the Ayurveda you should not put anything on your skin or hair that you wouldn't eat).
3c/4a. Very Fine and Thin.
Moisturizers: QB Burdock Root butter creme, Curl Junkie, Abba Pure Gentle leave-in
Styling Products: Curls Souffle, Curl Junkie Coffee Creme
Curl Cremes: Jessicurl Confident Coils
Conditioners: Deva Curl One, Mixed Chics DC, Nature's Gate Biotin
DT:AO Honeysuckle Rose, Coconut oil.
I have not used it, but I one of my co-workers loves it (she has great hair btw). I really want to try it, but its kind of pricey, but the forums say you can get it from Sally's (have never looked there so I don't know if its priced better). Here are some threads from LHCF:

I had a bottle of pure argan oil from a company called earth to body (http://www.natural.ca/index.html). They are a Canadian company from Montreal, QC, so judging by the Chiggy's Salon line in your siggie that might be a good place for you to get some from . I didn't order from their website so I can't comment on that - I got it from one of those festivals with all the different booths selling stuff.

It seemed to be a pretty decent oil - for hair - but ended up being too heavy for me. It started to look a little greasy which I thought was impossible for my hair, except, that greasyness came without extra softness . Although I did finish the whole jar, so I guess that says something.

If your hair can tolerate heavier oils then I would say its worth a try. I will say that if I wasn't CG I would definitely rep the Moroccan Oil brand argan oil that has all the silicones because when I tried it (my mom uses it) it did make my hair "feel" soft.

As an extra note: the argan oil from this brand was frustrating sometimes because the jar it comes in has a wide open mouth so I would often pour more then I intended into my hand - but if your not dopey like me then that shouldn't be a problem

Shea Terra Organics sells a virgin argan oil. It's not a low-cost oil, but it's less then other places. I bought it once, it's very nice. But personally, I prefer baobab and emu oil.

I saw this place has a lot of exotic oils as well as the more common ones like coconut, olive and almond. Has anyone ever ordered from here?

*found out about this company while stalking SBB's fotki when I first started transitioning-- I've ordered several body products from them as well with marvelous results!!!*

Uh, SBB, where do you purchase your Emu Oil... I got a small bottle from garden of wisdom.

*SIGH* Alas, I've come to accept my shrinkage and fairy knots

There are no magic potions, concoctions, elixirs, or pills for hair growth, weight loss, or financial independence... so stop looking for a quick fix!!!

I did not want to order Sally's brand because it is full of silicones and not pure argan. I was going to get Kiehl superably restorative dry argan oil from Nordstroms, but decided to check naturallycurly forum first. I'm glad I did. This website (sheaterraorganics.com) has pure argan and is cheaper than Kiehl's brand. I could not find Kiehl's ingredients, so I do not know if it is pure argan.
I also ordered baobab oil because my daughter suffers from rosacea and I am hoping this oil will help clear her skin.
Thanks again SBB for your product reviews!

I am from Canada too. I got mine from Henna Sooq. You can either purchase it online or in the market which they have in mississauga (a booth in the flea market). I do not find it to be heavy at all. Maybe thats because I have thicker hair than the person who commented about it being heavy. I find it to be a light oil that easily evaporates into my hair. For me it is not heavy nor does it leave a greasy look or feel. I really like it and I will more than likely purchase it agiain

I purchased Argan oil online from Henna Sooq. I love it! It is not heavy for me at all and does not leave the hair greasy. It is a staple for me and leaves my hair soft and supple. Great product
i don't see the excitement about this oil. i tried it and it didn't do anything great. i love peanut oil though lol

While it was not cheap ($5.50 for half an ounce), it only took a little bit to add softness to my hair.
