What is your hair type? How do you take care of your hair? How often do you visit the salon? Do you prefer DIY treatments? How much do you spend for hair products on a monthly basis?
So let’s begin with my own hair dynamics. I have natural wavy hair that is also borderline frizzy. Sometimes my hair has a nasty mind of its own, ‘ya know bad hair day, so big ‘ole bun is my quick and easy fix. I wash my hair every other day. When I’m in the mood for some hair action, I curl or straighten it. I visit the salon 2-3 times a year, and that’s mainly for hair color change or highlights. In between, I trim and retouch my own. I can’t live without a leave-in hair oil or conditioner. On the conservative side, I’d say I spend around $25-30 a month on haircare products (primarily shampoo and conditioner).
I had the opportunity to try Arganesse, a new brand that makes frizzy hair smooth and shiny. Retailing for $120 (3.4 oz /100ml), it’s definitely a splurge. But with a promise of giving mah hair some royal treatment, you know I’m in it.
Arganesse Hair Treatment is made from argan oil, a rare Moroccan oil that is high in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. It works in three ways:
Repairs damaged hair (from over- styling and washing, harsh chemicals)
Rehydrates dry and frizzy hair
Restores hair to a more natural and healthy condition
Oh they didn’t scrimp on the packaging! That was my initial reaction. Housed in an elegant ombre green glass bottle, I was very careful not to drop it. It also comes with a velvet pouch which adds a sophisticated feel to the whole unboxing experience.
But you know what really poked my interest? The very short list of ingredients. And with that, I mean five, take a look!
Cyclopentasilaxone, Dimethicone, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernal Oil, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Fragrance (Parfum)
Why is this important to me? It means that the product is true to its form. The more natural it is, the better. I ain’t paying for a gazillion list of diluents and preservatives.
But it’s pure oil, will it make your hair greasy? Surprisingly not for moi. For the purpose of demonstration, here’s a before and after pic:
Photos don’t really do justice, if only you can run your fingers through my hair and feel the difference. Let’s try a tighter shot this time:
Now can you see some shine? I do, and the frizz is gone like magic.
How do you use it then? Damp or dry hair, it really doesn’t matter. It didn’t weigh my hair down either way. I use it daily, after shower and in the mornings.
What about the fragrance? It smells good (quite similar to gardenia), a tad strong initially, but then it dissipates after a few minutes.
Overall, Arganesse lived up to its promise and I couldn’t be more happy with the result. However, it would be nice if it has a smaller version at half the cost. Say 50ml? That way, more people would be enticed to try it, especially since it’s a new brand.
