thanks, rymorg!
i actually bought some a little while ago after i read your post. found it at the vitamin shoppe where it turns out they have all those oils and other hair brands, for a couple of dollars less than i've paid locally.

my hair was still damp and i had only used leave in. so i damped my hands and add some argan oil and put it through my hair. WOW! my hair looks great and it's not even on totally wet hair as i intend to use it going forward.
