Hey girls! Today I want to talk about hair, and getting the most out of it as the Winter cold & dryness sets in. As soon as the cold weather hit here in Ohio, my hair became a crazy, dry mess. I couldn’t do anything with it, and I was at a loss as to how to combat it. A few weeks ago, Actually Organic sent me a bottle of their pure argan oil to try out, and boy but do I love it!
It’s no secret how passionate I am about high-quality, natural beauty products that will improve your body in the long run. And I love it when I find companies who share that same passion. In developing their product, Actually Organic searched high and low to find only the best, most pure Moroccan argan oil. You can read more about it here! I was so excited to try a product that I new would benefit my hair not only outwardly, but inwardly as well.
I decided to try it as a leave-in conditioner that I put in after I do my ACV rinse (read more about my hair routine here!) in the shower. When my hair is dripping wet, I apply 1-2 pumps of the oil to my palm, and comb my hands through my hair to distribute the oil. I tried this instead of my usual curl cream, and was so impressed with how moisturized and workable my hair became! My curls were more defined and shiny, my natural highlights became more vivid due to the shine of the oil, frizz was cut down significantly, and overall my hair felt straight-up amazing and moisturized. Take that, Winter dryness!
There is one down-side to applying this to your hair: it does cut down on the amount of time you can go without washing your hair. I usually can make it to 3-4 days between washes, but that has been cut down to 2 with the extra oil that I add. I’m not too concerned about this, as the products I use to clean my hair are very natural and non-drying; but, it does alter my usual hair regime a bit. I also found that after a couple uses, it seemed like my hair was adjusting to the new oil amount, so I’m going to continue to experiment and see how far I can go before I wash again.
One of the things that I love about this product is how versatile it is! It’s not only a hair product, but also a skin and nails product. I’ve always wanted to do an argan oil soak with my nails, and now I can with this fabulous product at hand! Plus, it’s amazing how little you need in your hair for it to work well! The cost efficiency of this little 1 oz bottle is really fabulous for the quality of product you get!
