Default A New Moisturizer For Natural Hair!!

A New Moisturizer!!! For Natural Hair!
Ok so I tried this stuff and its been 5 hours and my hair feels so silky!!! WHAT'S IN THIS STUFF!!!

Those of us who have dry or brittle hair have been searching for a solution to naturally moisturize and add body to our lifeless hair. Is the latest trend in hair treatment - Argan Oil - the solution?
Argan Oil is a natural, certified organic (when not blended) oil native to Morocco. Derived from the crushed fruit and nuts of the Argan tree, indigenous to Morocco, Moroccans have been using the oil as a treatment in hair and skin care products for centuries. The oil is high in unsaturated fatty acids and rich in Omega 9 - shown to be helpful at improving hair strength and health.
Surprisingly, Argan oil is non-greasy and non-oily and has become popular as a hair treatment to repair and heal damaged hair. Many believe it is excellent for locking in moisture and improving shine and luster.
Its' primary benefit seems to come from its ability to naturally hydrate and to help stop frizziness, fly-away and hard to control, unmanageable hair. Similar in properties to Jojoba oil - derived from mid-western U.S shrubs - Argan oil has been shown to penetrate the hair shaft and almost instantly improve follicle elasticity and increase nourishment.
Generally (and recommend) applied following shampooing to wet hair, Argan oil helps detangle. It is rich in natural antioxidants that are effective free-radical fighters - helping to repair cellular membrane damage and improve strength. It naturally contains Vitamin E that helps revive and renew hair damaged by heat, wind, oxidization or over-styling and processing.
Dubbed the "miracle oil" from Morocco, it competes with Jojoba oil as a very effective hair treatment that renourishes and replenishes dry or brittle hair while protecting and healing damage. As an added benefit, Argan Oil appears to help color treated hair. Essential fatty acids smooth and coat the follicle shaft and have been shown to extend the life of color treated hair.
Argan Oil is fast coming on the scene as the hair treatment of choice by professional stylists and their customers. Damage from excessive styling, perms or the environment leave hair dry and weak - slowing growth and increasing frizziness. The search for a hair treatment for dry may be over? Maybe so!

Shop HealthyHairPlus for Moroccan Argan Oil - a deep penetrating hair oil treatment for dry or brittle hair. Keep up the with latest hair products - hair shampoo, conditioners, styling aids and hair treatments for healthy hair.

A product to make tranistioning EASIER!
Scissors. Think of it like this, your mixing dirty clothes with clean clothes, you can use all the perfum you want (hair product) but the dirty clothes (permed hair) will never be clean, will eventually get old, raggedy, and eventually start shredding/breaking(natural&permed hair). Don't waste your time. Transitioning for most is a fight that relaxed hair will win!

I got a free sample of One 'n Only Argan Oil from Folica but it has 'cones. Also, be careful about that because that same exact product is on Folica.com and is guaranteed there with the ingredients listed. Although your website claims it's 100% Argan Oil, here are the ingredients Folica guarantees:

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Butylphenyl Methyl Propional, Argania Spinoza Kernel Oil (Argan Oil), Linseed (Linum Usitatissimum) Extract, Fragrance Supplement, D&C Yellow-11, D&C Red-17, Coumarin, Benzyl Benzoate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone.

Though if you like it I wouldn't worry about it, I just wanted to let you know in-case you weren't using 'cones.

Does anyone know what the pure stuff smells like? Some oils can be too "oily" smelling for me.

Just ordered this yesterday afternoon. They called a few hours later to say there was a conflict in the zip and state. Their website sometimes does this. She was expecting to get it out in a little bit--and thought I might get it today! They are in VA, I'm in PA. Pretty incredible service.

I use the one from Sheaterra Organics, and it has a strong nutty smell. So i usually use it in prepoos or sometimes as a nighttime face moisturizer.

A couple of weeks ago, I was scanning the drugstore for some good organic products, and while examining the "Live clean" products, I came upon this! "live clean Exotic Nectar Argan oil, oil treatment". Hearing the buzz of this product, I decided to purchase it.It is silicone free, but not 100% argan oil. Here are the ingredients:

Purified water, Argan extract, Argan oil, Grape seed oil, Olive fruit oil, Sorbitol, Propanediol, Plysorbate 20, Phenoxyethanol, Perfume, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium Benzoate, Cetrimonium Chloride, Caprylic

It's pretty good, it's a serum. Gives hsine, and I'm satisfied with the price, onl about 7$ I think, for 110 ml! I reccoment you guys try it, and if you like it you can move on for the real stuff. That's what I'll do. Oh, and it's CG friendly, too
