I am having a major love affair with Hair One too that started a few weeks ago. I would use it on and off, and liked it, but somehow it got pushed to the back of my linen closet.

I got it back out and have been using daily. (I hardly ever get 2nd day hair due to working out and feeling gross and needing to cleanse every day.) This may seem crazy, but the more I use it, the better my hair gets. Before, I would use it once, and not come back to it again for a few weeks due to the ridiculous amount of product in my stash. But I think maybe consistent use is the key for success with this product?

I have been using it as a cleanser, a condish and a leave-in. It's been great for my color, and my hair seems to be in great condition, much less coarse and dry lately.

I was completely thrilled to see that this comes in litre bottles now, awesome!! I use the argan, but am curious to try the Sweet Almond too. I've used the Olive Oil in the past as well, but didn't love it.

I have tried Wen before too, and liked it OK, but can't justify the price, it's not THAT wonderful.

It's been strangely liberating to be able to clear out most of the stuff in my shower and replace everything with this one simple product!

I've been using the sweet almond but I just bought a bottle of the argan oil today after reading the raves of curly haired folks. I've got about 1/3 left in my little bottle of sweet almond, bought the 32 oz of the argan oil. I like to look at the bottle as half shampoo, half conditioner and then I don't freak out that I'm going through a ton of product. Thinking of starting on the argan oil tomorrow and then saving the sweet almond to try on my daughter... she's turning two in two weeks, but she's got a full head of hair and her curls are starting to look funky. I'm wondering if this wouldn't put the zest back in her hair like it did for me. Don't know what they say about kids using this or what the difference is in the Wen for kids that they're toting now (other than scent). Speaking of scent, I'm kind of bummed the argan oil smells like men's Old Spice and the almond smells so good! Of course, I made my husband smell the new stuff today and he said that was his favorite scent! Maybe because it smells like him?

Really curious to find out what difference it will make. They didn't have the 32 oz containers of the sweet almond. The $19.99 sale on the big containers goes until Halloween, btw.

Wow, I really want to buy some while it's on sale but not sure which one, lol. My hair doesn't seem to mind olive oil but I think I will try the one for curly hair and let you know how it works out.

Slightly OT - but I'll bring it around:

So, I've finally tried a Wen. I ordered 3 of the 6 oz. bottles from Amazon (Fig, Lavender & Tea Tree). I didn't really need a wash yet, but I figured, what the heck? So I washed with the Fig tonight. I can definitely see why people are so surprised by this stuff...I definitely have never used anything quite like this, and I've used thousands of products. I think the formulas are different, but what I've observed so far is that the Fig has incredible slip, and it detangles like nothing. Even with KCKT I have to work at it, but this Fig stuff just seemed to dissolve the tangles. I put a little in as a leave-in, and even though it will take all night for my hair to dry, it feels like it's drying faster than usual...I don't know if that's a bad sign or a good sign.

And back to the Hair One discussion - based on only one use I'm already sure I prefer the Hair One Argan Oil to the Wen Fig. The Wen Fig is similar to Hair One Olive Oil in its softening properties, (but the Olive Oil doesn't dissolve tangles quite like Wen). However, the Hair One Argan Oil not only seems to cleanse my hair more thoroughly, it seems to add "life" to my hair. My hair springs into curls even before I put curl cream in it. I can "feel" by the way it's drying, the Wen is going to leave me with poofs, and no definition at all. The Fig, at least, seems almost "too" softening, so it doesn't give any weight to my hair. It feels amazing as it detangles, but the end doesn't seem to be much different from the days when I drenched my hair in Herbal Essences Totally Twisted or Fructis Sleek & Shine conditioners. My hair is going to look more "teased" than curly.

The Hair One Argan Oil feels much nicer on my scalp, too.

Hair one is the best. It's affordable and good on any type of hair. I discovered it a year ago. Love it. I use it as an alternate to Devacurl one conditioner
