Review: Creme of Nature Argan Oil Gloss & Shine Polisher

Argan oil is officially a mainstay in my general routine concerning hair care. First it started with a small bottle of the Hask Argan Oil Healing Shine Treatment a few years ago and at $2 a bottle that lasted for a long time, it's a great deal. You can find Hask at any beauty store but given how often I used it, I figured it was time to get a bigger bottle. Hask doesn't have a bigger bottle, but luckily at certain drugstores, you can find Creme of Nature: Argan Oil Gloss & Shine Polisher.

Argan oil is pretty simple to use -- you would use it similarly to the way you'd use other oils (such as, but not limited to macadamia nut oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, or even rose water [there is a oil for every hair type, apparently]). When your hair is damp, take a small amount into your palm and work it through your hair. I mostly concentrate on the ends rather than high up on the crown or scalp (though if you have a dry scalp, you'll want to make sure you work some into that area). On my own hair, I take about a nickel size worth of the oil and work it only onto the ends of my hair as since the ends get brittle and dry (whereas my scalp gets oily).

So yeah... great for your hair. Now here's an interesting side step -- how do they work as a moisturizers? You've probably seen Argan oil in an awful lot of products lately so something I wanted to see was how well would it work on my skin. Both Hask and Creme of Nature leave behind a slick of greasiness that eventually dissolves for about 15 minutes, you're aware of it being there. Remember that has a moisturizer you would be using more than you would if you were just working it into your hair so don't hold this portion of my review against either of them. The one that does pass this experiment though is interestingly Organix Penetrating Hair Oil Moroccan Argan which penetrates quickly and leaves your skin moisturized. I do not know how the Organix works in one's hair because I used the entire sample as a hand moisturizer. >_<

Product: Creme of Nature Argan Oil Gloss & Shine Polisher
Price: $6 - $8 (varies by store)
Would Recommend: Yes.
Takeaway: While Hask is great, so is having a 4 oz bottle instead. Definitely more economical in a sense. Works well with your hair as it gives a nice shine to it as well as moisturizes dry hair.

Product: Hask Argan Oil Healing Shine Treatment
Price: $2
Would Recommend: Yes.
Takeaway: Love this bottle but for long hair, it's just not very economical. Works great though and definitely a fantastic moisturizer.
